Bhagavad Gita on Contentment

When a man completely casts away, O Partha, all the desires of the mind, satisfied in the Self alone by the Self, then is he said to be one of steady wisdom. (Bhagavad Gita, 2. 55)

With their minds wholly in Me [the Supreme Being], with their senses absorbed in Me, enlightening one another, and always speaking of Me, they are satisfied and delighted. (Bhagavad Gita, 10.9)

He who hates no creature, and is friendly and compassionate towards all, who is free from the feelings of ‘I and mine’, even-minded in pain and pleasure, forbearing, ever content, steady in meditation, self-controlled, and possessed of firm conviction, with mind and intellect fixed on Me – he who is thus devoted to Me, is dear to Me. (Bhagavad Gita, 12.14)
