The word satisfaction seems to be missing in the people minds these days. Need not mention that everyone were experiencing temporary satisfaction but everyone were carving to get more satisfied and ending up in frustration. Personally for me satisfaction is being content with what we have and this varies from person to person like some people gets satisfied by eating the food he love and for some one who work, he relates being satisfied by learning a new work. like this everyone relates their satisfaction to their occupation or daily recreation such as eating, drinking, exercising, yoga etc.,
satisfaction varies with age too for example if we are a
1. Infant: we get satisfied by toys, milk.etc.,
2. Young: we may get satisfied by getting good ranks in class
3. Adult: we may get satisfied by seeing our kids and their play or by enjoying luxurious life.
4. Old age: we may get satisfied by seeing our kids grownup and doing jobs in higher positions.
In fact this sages were searching for this satisfaction and were going to forests for meditation. Overall, permanent satisfaction cannot be attained and that spirit drives us to attain higher positions in life.
