What does YAMAS mean?

Yamas
Yamas, and its complement, niyamas, represent a series of "right living" or ethical rules within Hinduism and Yoga. These are a form of moral imperatives, commandments, rules or goals. Every religion has a code of conduct, or series of "do's and don'ts", and the Yamas represent one of the "don't" lists within Hinduism, and specifically, rāja yoga. Yama यम, means self-restraint, self-control and discipline. The yamas comprise the "shall-not" in our dealings with the external world as the niyamas comprise the "shall-do" in our dealings with the inner world. Ten yamas are codified as "the restraints" in numerous scriptures including the Shandilya and Varaha Upanishads, the Hatha Yoga Pradipika by Gorakshanatha, and the Tirumantiram of Tirumular. Patañjali lists only five yamas in his Yoga Sūtras.
