In Yoga ~ Sanyam or Sanyama is defined in the Yoga Sutras 3.4-6 as a special configuration of consciousness that is applied to very subtle exploration of inner reality. Once this configuration of consciousness is mastered, a special type of knowledge arises: prajna, or intuitive wisdom.
Sanyama is described as the combination of 3 of the 8 limbs of traditional yoga: Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi, which are defined in Yoga Sutras 3.1-3.
I like to think of Sanyam as concentrated oneness.
