Santoṣita (सन्तोषित) refers to “satisfaction”, according to the Kubjikāmata-tantra, the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “The teacher should be respected and worshipped. Teachers should always to be venerated. Then, if the teacher has been satisfied (santoṣita), all the moving and immobile world has been satisfied. There is no one who is equal to the teacher in the mortal world, especially in the heavens. What (more) should one who saves from the great ocean of suffering do? It is the disciple who acts (at the service of his teacher)”.
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
