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 3.118.8

स्थितः किं मूढ एवास्मि प्रेक्षेऽहं शास्त्रसज्जनम् ।
वैराग्यपूर्वमिच्छेति शुभेच्छेत्युच्यते बुधैः ॥ ८ ॥

vairāgyapūrvamiccheti śubhecchetyucyate budhaiḥ || 8 ||
