Niyantrita (नियन्त्रित) refers to the “restrained”, according to the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 9.12cd-13, while explaining the name of Amṛteśa]—“He is called Netra because he protects the restrained and bound (niyantrita—niyantritānāṃ baddhānāṃ). He who escapes death is called Mṛtyujit. Thus, he [who] grants immortality is called Amṛteśa”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.

Niyantrita (नियन्त्रित) refers to “being afraid (of the curse)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.34 (“The Story of Anaraṇya”).—Accordingly, as Vasiṣṭha said to Himavat (Himācala): “[...] Thus the good sage spent a long time with his mind utterly agitated by pangs of love. Once while the good sage was on his way to the river Puṣpabhadrā for taking his bath he happened to see the young maiden Padmā who was as charming as goddess Lakṣmī. The sage asked the persons standing by—‘Who is this girl?’ The people, afraid of the curse (śāpa-niyantrita) bowed to the sage and replied. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Niyantrita (नियन्त्रित) refers to “fettered”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Travelling living beings, fettered very tightly (atigāḍha—atigāḍhaṃ niyantritāḥ) by numerous chains such as women, etc., fall into a deep pit of darkness called life”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
