Raja Yoga Sutra by Patanjali, with commentary by Sri Swami Sivananda - Random Selection

Raja Yoga Sutra Selection # 117

From Discourse III: "Vibhuti Pada- On Divine Powers"


'(The practice of) these three (Dharana, Dhyana, & Samadhi) together is "samyama"'.

When concentration, meditation and samadhi flow in an unbroken sequence on one object, the process is called samyama. This flow cannot be forced. Any such attempt means that thought waves are being summoned to control thought waves, which is self-defeating, for the aim is to still all thought waves. The ability to practice samyama comes from years of practice and purification.
