Jīvanmukti (जीवन्मुक्ति) refers to “liberation while living”, according to the Amṛtasiddhi, a 12th-century text belonging to the Haṭhayoga textual tradition.—In Schaeffer’s analysis of the Amṛtasiddhi (2002, 521–524), he notes how it is unique amongst Tibetan Buddhist works because its teachings are said to bestow jīvanmukti, “liberation while living,” and make the yogi identical with Śiva.

Īśvara's answer is the practice of amanaska (the no-mind state), which was generally understood in medieval yoga texts to be synonymous with Samādhi, that is to say, the state of Rājayoga. The attainment of amanaska dissolves the mind and breath, which enables the yogin to see the non-dual state referred to as the highest reality.
