Yoga Sutra 3.04

A little look at the third Yoga Sutra

trayam-ekatra saṁyamaḥ

The three-fold approach [object, domain or direction] applied to one completes your practice

The last three Sutra-s explain the notions of concentration, meditation and complete absorption. This triad combined creates a complete and exclusive understanding of the object of meditation (saṁyama). As such, saṁyama literally means: “perfect restraint”. Saṁyama is a profound enquiry, a skill mastered by constant practice over time.
