Moksopaya [sanskrit]

This Sanskrit edition of the Moksopaya. It is a large philosophical text dealing with “the science of liberation”. Similar to the Yoga-vasistha in content, the Mokshopaya-shastra was likely its predecessor, said to contain 30,000 shlokas (metrical verses). One of the core philosophies of the texts teaches the non-existence of cognitive objects; while holding such a view leads to an attitude of dispassion towards worldly matters.

Verse 1.11.11

असतैव वयं कष्टं विक्रीता मूढबुद्धयः ।
मृगतृष्णाम्भसा दूरे वने मुग्धमृगा इव ॥ ११ ॥

asataiva vayaṃ kaṣṭaṃ vikrītā mūḍhabuddhayaḥ |
mṛgatṛṣṇāmbhasā dūre vane mugdhamṛgā iva || 11 ||
