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 4.20.6

ज्ञाततत्त्वो हि शिथिलीभूतवासनः कुर्वन्नपि फलं नानुसन्दधाति । अवयवस्पन्दमात्रं केवलं करोत्यसक्तबुद्धिः । सम्प्राप्तमपि फलमात्मैवेदं सर्वमिति नानुभवति । केन व्यतिरिक्तं किमनुभूयते इति । तेन तत्त्वज्ञः कुर्वन्नपि न किञ्चिदपि करोति ॥ ६ ॥

jñātatattvo hi śithilībhūtavāsanaḥ kurvannapi phalaṃ nānusandadhāti | avayavaspandamātraṃ kevalaṃ karotyasaktabuddhiḥ | samprāptamapi phalamātmaivedaṃ sarvamiti nānubhavati | kena vyatiriktaṃ kimanubhūyate iti | tena tattvajñaḥ kurvannapi na kiñcidapi karoti || 6 ||
