विप्रतिषेधाच्चासमञ्जसम् ॥ १० ॥
vipratiṣedhāccāsamañjasam || 10 ||
vipratiṣedhāt—Because of contradictions; ca—also; asamañjasam—inconsistent.
10. Also because of contradictions (the Sankhyan theory) is inconsistent.
There are various contradictions in the Sankhya philosophy, as, for example, sometimes the senses are said to be eleven and again they are said to be seven, again the Tanmatras are said to be produced from Mahat in one place and in another place from Ahankara (Ego), and so on. Its differences with Sruti and Smriti are well known. Hence the doctrine of the Pradhana of the Sankhyas cannot be accepted.
