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 2.11.40

आपतन्ति प्रतिपदं यथाकालं दहन्ति च ।
दुःखचिन्ता नरं मूढं तृणमग्निशिखा इव ॥ ४० ॥

āpatanti pratipadaṃ yathākālaṃ dahanti ca |
duḥkhacintā naraṃ mūḍhaṃ tṛṇamagniśikhā iva || 40 ||
