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 2.16.8

अपि कष्टतरां प्राप्तैर्दशां विवशतां गतैः ।
मनागपि न सन्त्याज्या मानवैः साधुसङ्गतिः ॥ ८ ॥

api kaṣṭatarāṃ prāptairdaśāṃ vivaśatāṃ gataiḥ |
manāgapi na santyājyā mānavaiḥ sādhusaṅgatiḥ || 8 ||
