Samtosha (contentment) invites you to open your heart and practice unconditional love and living. 2020 has been an unprecedented year of unknowns, distress, fear, and change. Forgive yourself if you’ve wished it were different. Rather than scattering your energy and resisting what is, what can you embrace here wholeheartedly and feel grateful for now?
Samtosha is the second niyama of the Sadhana Pada, book two of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra. Santosha, a daily gratitude practice, states that supreme joy is accessed through contentment. The samtosha yoga sutra is 11.42,santosad anuttamah sukha-labhah, or as Patanjali states,from contentment arises unparalleled happiness. Samtosha is a dynamic state of being.
