He says maitri friendliness with those individuals who are happy. Be pleasant with pleased people. If you are not friendly with individuals who enjoy, you will certainly really feel envious. Your envy is due to the fact that a person is happier compared to you. However if you own them, if you feel that they belong to you, after that you will certainly not be envious of them. See, you are not envious of somebody extremely dear to you, a person really near to you. When they enjoy it does not bother you. It does not bring envy in you. When you believe so and so is extremely happy and they are not connected to you totally, after that envy comes. He (Patanjali) claims have friendship with them, have a sensation of friendliness with them.

You can see the exact same Self in everyone yet the sensations will certainly not be the same. It can differ for a newbie. One does not really feel the very same with everybody, though intellectually you may state that, ‘It is only myself there’, yet since your sensation is not yet fully cultured, not fully developed by itself, it still has its choices. Then exactly what preference will you take? Get along with those who are happy.
