Ūhāpoha (ऊहापोह) is a Sanskrit compound consisting of ūhā (elucidation) and apoha (elimination), and is mentioned in the Naiṣadha-carita 19.26. [Jinarāja remarks that] Ūhā is thus the power to discover and comprehed the hidden aspects of the matter under discussion; while Apoha is the application of the critical faculty involving the rejection of what is objectionable. Both ūha or ūhā and apoha are included among the eight Dhīguṇas or intellectual qualities. Cf. Hemacandra’s Dvyāśraya Kāvya 1.182 and commentary thereon.
Ūhāpoha combined means “full discussion”, “consideration of the pros and cons” (Apte). The expression occurs in Ahirbudhnyasaṃhitā 20.1; in Nāṭyaśāstra 33.12; also in Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa 6.5. Haradatta on Gauamadharmasūtra 3.10.46 explains ūhavidbhiḥ as ūhāpohakuśalaiḥ.
