From contentment (santosha) results unsurpassed joy.
Complete inner freedom. The ability to sit and ‘to just BE’, no desires to ‘get’ or ‘do’, no ‘I should…’, no inner mind fluctuations or struggles. The student is content with earthly objects, experiences joy of both heavens and earth and out of this ultimate joy arises the joy of JUST BEING! The student realizes that true joy is found within, on the path to liberation.
