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 3.66.22

अपि प्राणांस्तृणमिव त्यजन्तीह महाशयाः ।
यत्राभिलाषस्तन्मात्रत्यागे कृपणता कथम् ॥ २२ ॥

api prāṇāṃstṛṇamiva tyajantīha mahāśayāḥ |
yatrābhilāṣastanmātratyāge kṛpaṇatā katham || 22 ||
