The Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali - Vibhuti Pada
Concentration is focusing the mind on something and remaining fixed.
Meditation is moving closer to this without distraction.
Samadhi is becoming perfectly absorbed in stillness and
union with that which is concentrated and meditated upon.
The three merge into one. This is Samyama.
When mastered a pure wisdom and insight surfaces
in relation to that which has been absorbed.
This mastery is developed gradually.
These three aspects are internal compared with the others.
But even this can be perceived as external in
comparison to the seedless states of Samadhi.
Thoughts rise but are suppressed. Re-occurring thoughts and deeper
impressions are also suppressed and removed.The connection is made
with the moment between. This is transformation through restraint.
Continual peace flows when these rising impressions are suppressed.
