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 2.18.4

योऽम्भस्तातस्य कूपोऽयमिति कौपं पिबेत्कटु ।
त्यक्त्वा गाङ्गं पुरस्स्थं तं कोऽनुशासति रागिणम् ॥ ४ ॥

yo'mbhastātasya kūpo'yamiti kaupaṃ pibetkaṭu |
tyaktvā gāṅgaṃ purassthaṃ taṃ ko'nuśāsati rāgiṇam || 4 ||
