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 3.15.8

जगत्यपिण्डग्राहेऽस्मिन् गन्धर्वनगरोपमे ।
मरौ सरिदिवाभाति दृश्यता भ्रान्तिरूपिणी ॥ ८ ॥

jagatyapiṇḍagrāhe'smin gandharvanagaropame |
marau saridivābhāti dṛśyatā bhrāntirūpiṇī || 8 ||
