ON CONTENTMENT AND AMBITION

Modest ambition should be of every man's seeking , say, yearning. It brings its master honour by elevating his position, secured through honest means and virtuous conduct. When one achieves his object, and ambition, fulfilled, he feels his heart overflowing with bliss. Tranquility seeks him then and contentment enters to be stationed in his heart for ever. It remains with him as his comely consort, feeding him on the milk of concord for his heavenward journey. Does he require anything else? Is he inferior to the denizens of heaven, in any way? Nay, he is more!

Now comes contentment. It means satisfaction, in common parlance. It is not a colourful word, nor does it embody weighty ingredients. It is a sublime word standing for a covetable virtue. It is a divine virtue. So, it is simple, modest, and decent. It draws its strength from simplicity. It can be equated with devotion in this aspect. Though simple and noble it is very hard to attain and extremely difficult to retain. It only beckons people modestly to admit it into their ken and domain. Being frank, it publishes its qualities out- right in an unambiguous terminology in the beginning itself.
