Santosha (skt. संतोष saṃtoṣa, "contentment, satisfaction") is one of the niyamas of Yoga as listed by Patanjali. Contentment is variously described, but can be thought of as not requiring more than you have to achieve contentment. It may be seen as renunciation of the need to acquire, and thereby elimination of want as an obstacle to mokṣa.
The alternate spelling samtosha is also seen.
