Six kinds of household joy:
The joy that arises when one regards as an acquisition the acquisition of forms cognizable by the eye, agreeable, pleasing, charming, endearing, connected with worldly baits, or when one recalls the previous acquisition of such forms after they have passed, ceased, and changed: That is called household joy.
(Similarly with the other senses)
