SANTOSHA

The second Niyama, or ‘do’, is SANTOSHA. Now, isn’t that a gorgeous word? I know of a very beautiful boat called Santosha! It means contentment. If we’re managing to stick to the five ‘don’ts’, we’ll be well on our way to contentment. How wonderful to be given this as a rule for living! Contentment isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity! It isn’t something that we aim for, way away in the future. We need to be content right now, right here. Yoga helps us to find that level place of contentment, and to live in that place. Are you content today?
