Klesha (devanāgarī: क्लेश, kleśa) is a Sanskrit term used in yoga philosophy, meaning a "affliction" or "causes of suffering." The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (second chapter, third śloka) describe Five Afflictions (Sanskrit: pañcakleśā):

अविद्यास्मितारागद्वेषाभिनिवेशाः पञ्च क्लेशाः॥३॥ Avidyāsmitārāgadveṣābhiniveśāḥ pañca kleśāḥ

These five kleshas are:

- Ignorance (ávidyā)

- Egoism (asmitā)

- Attraction (rāga)

- Repulsion (dveṣa)

- Attachment to life (abhiniveśāḥ).
