Saṃśaya

Saṃśaya is one of the nine antarāya (in Patañjali’s system), obstacles that intrude on the yoga practice.

Saṃśaya is the sanskrit term that means doubt, a state of mind where the mind wavers between polar views.

“Samsayaatma vinasyathi” (Bhagavad Gītā) means one who is filled with doubts will perish, as faith is that which motivates a human being to live.

The mountain that appears insurmountable will remain insurmountable, until you rise up to the challenge, by conquering doubt.
