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 2.5.20

चित्ते चिन्तयतामर्थं यथाशास्त्रं निजेहितैः ।
असंसाधयतामेव मूढानां धिग्दुरीप्सितम् ॥ २० ॥

citte cintayatāmarthaṃ yathāśāstraṃ nijehitaiḥ |
asaṃsādhayatāmeva mūḍhānāṃ dhigdurīpsitam || 20 ||
