Vedanta (school of philosophy)Source: archive.org: Preceptors of Advaita
One who has attained to the knowledge of Brahman continues to live till his prārabdha-karma is exhausted by experiencing its results. This state is known as jīvan-mukti. When the prārabdha-karma is exhausted by experiencing its results, the jīvan-mukta is dissociated from his physical accompaniments and he becomes Brahman itself. This is known as videha-mukti.
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).
