Aśraddheya (अश्रद्धेय) refers to a “dubious act”, according to the the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] [Though] one may with difficulty master the breath by various Mudrās which are based upon physical torture; [though] one may control the flows [of the various vital airs] in all the channels located in one’s body; and though one may accomplish the dubious [act] (aśraddheya) of going into another’s body, there is certainly no attainment of liberation for one whose happiness is solely attached to knowledge [of these]. [...]”.
