Buddhist Dictionary

by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:

somanassa: lit 'glad-minded-ness' (su+manas+ya), gladness, joy; identical with 'mentally agreeable feeling' (cetasikā-sukhā-vedanā), belongs to the feeling-group (vedanākkhandha, see khandha II), and is enumerated amongst the 22 faculties (see indriya). It may or may not be associated with kammically wholesome consciousness (see Table I. 1-4, 9-12, 18-21), with kammically unwholesome consciousness (greedy c. ib. 22-25), and with kammically neutral consciousness (ib. 40, 42-45, 57-60, 66-69, 72-76. 81-84), - Somanassa is not identical with pīti.
