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 3.66.8

यथा मदवशाद्भ्रान्तान् क्षीवः पश्यति पादपान् ।
तथा चेतनविक्षुब्धा संसारांश्चित्प्रपश्यति ॥ ८ ॥

yathā madavaśādbhrāntān kṣīvaḥ paśyati pādapān |
