Samtosha – Yamas and Niyamas

Paul Litvin Video Leave a Comment

Samtosha (also spelled Santosha) means contentment. If our happiness always relies on outside influences such as the car we drive, our spouse’s mood, or the weather, then we will never be the masters of our own joy. We must be able to, like King Janaka taught Lakshman, always remember our highest truth and joy through all tasks we do – regardless of how daunting, unappealing, or arduous. In this video experience contentment and enjoy a reading of a wonderful story about two major characters of the Ramayana.
