Samshaya or saṃśaya - lying down to rest or sleep, doubtsadyāpi na nivṛtto me saṃśayaḥ parameśvara |
kiṃ rūpaṃ tattvato deva śabdarāśikalāmayam || 2 |
Christopher Chapple points out in Yoga and the luminous: Patañjali's spiritual path to freedom
, Page 153, that saṃśaya
(together) + saya
(lying, sleeping). So, “Let’s sleep together” appears to be a pun within the word, and śaya
has the additional meaning of “a bed, couch.”
