2.42 From an attitude of contentment (santosha), unexcelled happiness, mental comfort, joy, and satisfaction is obtained.

(santosha anuttamah sukha labhah)

 

 

If you show me the world’s largest, most luxurious diamond and I simply shrug my shoulders – what’s the diamond worth?

Nothing.

The diamond only holds power over those who give it their power. When we stop coveting the diamond – and stand firmly rooted in the philosophy of santosha, content with what we have – we will remove the construct of inferiority /superiority that the ego allows it to represent.
