Dharmashastra (religious law)Source: Sacred Texts: The Grihya Sutras, Part 2 (SBE30)
Pratiṣedha (प्रतिषेध) refers to a “prohibition”, according to the Āpastamba-yajña-paribhāṣā-sūtras.—“The Prakṛti stops from three causes, from a corollary, from a prohibition [viz., pratiṣedha], and from loss of purpose”. Commentary: A prohibition (pratishedha) occurs, when it is said, “he does not choose an Ārṣeya”.

Vedanta (school of philosophy)Source: academia.edu: Religious Inclusivism in the Writings of an Early Modern Sanskrit Intellectual (vedanta)
Pratiṣedha (प्रतिषेध) (Cf. Śaṅkara) means “to stand against”.—[...] Independent human reasoning (śuṣkatarka) or experience (anubhava) alone are not conducive to liberation. Therefore, those religious traditions that claim to be based on the inspiration of omniscient founders and/or on extra-Vedic revelations cannot be soteriologically-valid means of liberation. It is essentially on the basis of this argument that Śaṅkara refutes the authority of Buddhist, Jaina, Sāṃkhya, Yoga, Pāśupata and Pāñcarātra traditions in the second adhyāya of his Brahmasūtrabhāṣya. For instance, ad Brahmasūtrabhāṣya 2.2.45, Śaṅkara says that Śāṇḍilya studied Pāñcarātra because he did not find the highest good (paraṃ śreyas, i.e. liberation) in Vedic teachings. Śaṅkara interprets Śāṇḍilya’s attitude as an offense (nindā) to the Veda, and thus rejects the entire Pāñcarātra tradition on the basis that it stands against the Veda (veda-pratiṣedha).
Vedanta (वेदान्त, vedānta) refers to a school of orthodox Hindu philosophy (astika), drawing its subject-matter from the Upanishads. There are a number of sub-schools of Vedanta, however all of them expound on the basic teaching of the ultimate reality (brahman) and liberation (moksha) of the individual soul (atman).
Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)Source: De Gruyter: A Buddhist Ritual Manual on Agriculture

[...]”.
