संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

शमो हि परमं सुखम्

सन्तोषः परमो लाभः सत्सङ्गः परमा गतिः।
विचारः परमं ज्ञानं शमो हि परमं सुखम्॥
—योग-वासिष्ठे
santoṣaḥ paramo lābhaḥ satsaṅgaḥ paramā gatiḥ |
vicāraḥ paramaṁ jñānaṁ śamo hi paramaṁ sukham ||
—yoga-vāsiṣṭhe

Contentment is the highest gain, Good Company the highest course,
Enquiry/Contemplation is the highest wisdom, and Peace the highest enjoyment.
