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 3.131.8

प्राणानुस्मरणोच्छ्वासमिव बाष्पं स्म मुञ्चति ।
चण्डानिलविलासेन लुलित्वा वनभूमिषु ॥ ८ ॥

prāṇānusmaraṇocchvāsamiva bāṣpaṃ sma muñcati |
caṇḍānilavilāsena lulitvā vanabhūmiṣu || 8 ||
