Niyama (Sanskrit: à¤¨à¤¿à¤¯à¤®) is a set of behaviors codified as "the observances" in numerous scriptures including the Shandilya and Varuha Upanishads, Hatha Yoga Pradipika by Gorakshanatha, the Tirumantiram of Tirumular and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

They comprise the "shall-do" in our dealings with the inner world, and Swami Vivekananda describes them as the second step of Raja yoga (Sanskrit: à¤°à¤¾à¤œ à¤¯à¥‹à¤—).
