Hari Om Dear Yoga Students,
“Santosha, or the practice of contentment, is the ability to feel satisfied within the container of one’s immediate experience”
Feeling satisfied within the container of one’s immediate experience means to meet the present moment with a fresh perspective and open up to everything it has to offer. Satisfaction combines the energies of acceptance and gratitude. Contentment is not based on what you think you need to be satisfied, but more a sense of gratitude for what you already have. Santosha is, in a broader sense, about being content with your loved ones; not trying to change or coerce them to be something other then that who they are, loving them unconditionally. The ability to feel satisfied within the container of your immediate experience comes when you allow your expectations to fade and your perceptions to clear enabling you to become empty of past impressions or expectations; this is the practice of yoga, this is the practice of Santosha.
