samśaya (‘that which sleeps [or remains in the mind]")

Samśaya or doubt is created when two kinds of knowledge, opposed to each other, arise in the mind.

In the Yogasutras (1.30) of Patañjali (200 B. C.), it is listed as one of the nine obstacles to yoga. It has to be overcome

by faith in the scripture and the teacher.

The Bhagavadgitā (4.40) declares that a doubting person loses this world

and the next and ultimately destroys himself.

Some technical treatises classify samśaya into seven categories such as śuddhasamśaya (doubt in general), dharmasamśaya (doubt regarding dharma) and so on.
