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 2.5.9

तावत्तावत्प्रयत्नेन यतितव्यं स्वपौरुषम् ।
प्राक्तनं पौरुषं यावदशुभं शाम्यति स्वयम् ॥ ९ ॥
