In yoga, tripti, santosha or contentment are defined as acceptance and understanding of the condition, situation and environment. It is an inner state of peace and contentment. It is a state of joy and satisfaction, regardless of pleasure, pain, gain, loss, prosperity or poorness. It should be practiced as a niyama and with a positive mind. It is a state of contentment with no desires, so one should first let go of their ideas of happiness and open their minds. A mindful and open-minded yoga practice is one of the approaches leading to tripti.
