Saṃśleṣa (संश्लेष) refers to a “mixture”, as mentioned in verse 5.6-8 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] Not shall one drink (water that is) [...]: nor (celestial water) that (is) seasonable (but) the first (of the season), (because it is) polluted by its mixture [viz. saṃśleṣa] with the webs, feces, urine, and poison of spiders etc. [...] (such water) one shall not drink”.

Note: Saṃśleṣa (“mixture”) has been divided into two co-ordinate gerunds (both times ’dres “mixed, mingled”—’dris in C being an error), which refer to tantu and viṇmūtraviṣa respectively.—lūtā the Tibetans have coupled with tantu only, while Aruṇadatta and Candranandana relate it with viṇmūtraviṣa as well.
