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.

It is the disciple who acts (at the service of his teacher)”.
