1) Duḥsādhya (दुःसाध्य) refers to “(that which is) impossible” (to attain) according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.5.1 (“Description of Tripura—the three cities”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to the sons of Tāraka-Asura: “[...] Immortality is impossible (su-duḥsādhya) for the gods and the Asuras. It is inaccessible [durlabhaṃ vā suduḥsādhyaṃ mṛtyuṃ]. It cannot be warded off. Hence choose a boon whereby you shall do something equal to your own strength”.

2) Dussādhya (दुस्साध्य) refers to “invincible”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.5.3 (“The virtues of the three cities—Tripura).—Accordingly, as Śiva said to the Gods: “A meritorious person is the presiding ruler of the Tripuras now. He who practises meritorious deeds should not be killed by sensible persons. O gods, I know the misery of the gods completely. It is great. Those Asuras are very strong. They cannot be killed by the gods or demons. The sons of Tāraka and Maya are equally meritorious. O sensible ones, they are invincible (dussādhya) to all the citizens [dussādhyastu vadhasteṣāṃ sarveṣāṃ puravāsinām]. [...]”.
