What is Kama Muta?

“Kama muta” is Sanskrit for ‘moved by love’: काममूत.

Kama muta is the sudden feeling of oneness — of love, belonging, or union — with an individual person, a family, a team, a nation, nature, the cosmos, God, or a kitten.

In English, it is often called being moved or touched. Many other languages have similar labels for the feeling. We use the label kama muta because “being moved” and similar terms are sometimes also used for other emotions, such as sadness and awe, or even for having an emotion in general.
