People also like to love the contented person because he/she does not become a problem for the family members, neighbours and others in society. He does not demand anything extra from anybody and from society like the possessive persons who are mad after money, properties, positions, fame, prestige, etc. and thereby become problems for all in the society. The contented person serves as a lighthouse of knowledge and experience for others who are ignorant of living a life of contentment with limited wants and necessities.

Not only do people in this world love the contented person, but God, the Above One, also equally loves such a person, as he/she has acquired one of His qualities and thereby becomes an example and divine representative of the quality or attribute of contentment. The contented person creates an aura around him and an atmosphere of divinity in the environment and the atmosphere which attracts others towards him and God.

Contented one is worship-worthy

In India, as our traditions and customs held it, the Indian gods and goddesses are worshipped due to each of their special embodied qualities and/or attributes. In the same way, worship of goddess of contentment (Santoshi Devi) in all parts of India is quite famous. She is worshipped by many on Friday, a special day earmarked for her worship and offered jaggery (Gud) and gram (Chana) only as offerings, which shows her as the embodiment of contentment whereas other gods and goddesses are worshipped with offerings of expensive ingredients like flowers, fruits, sweets, ignited incense sticks, etc.

It is also believed that where the goddess of contentment, Santoshi Mata, goes, all other gods and goddesses follow after her. In other words, if in a particular house the members are quite contented they never feel the lack of riches (which goddess Lakshmi symbolises) as they themselves feel enriched due to their economic lifestyle; neither they feel the lack of knowledge and intellect (which goddess Saraswati symbolises); nor also they feel the lack of power/energy (which goddess Durga symbolises). Thus, they achieve the blessings and benedictions of the most favoured and cherished worship-worthy gods and goddesses and live an exemplary life of peace, happiness and contentment.

So, in this way, the persons are regarded as blessed and worship-worthy due to their feeling and realisation of divine association with these gods and goddesses whom they love, pray and worship most devotedly and reverently in their lives. In other words, they become worship-worthy by worshipping the worship-worthy gods and goddesses, just as a piece of iron gets magnetised by coming in contact and association with the magnet.
