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 4.22.2

वसिष्ठः ।
उत्पद्यन्ते यथा चित्रा ब्रह्मणो भूतजातयः ।
यथा नाशं प्रयान्त्येता यथा मुक्ता भवन्ति च ॥ २ ॥

vasiṣṭhaḥ |
utpadyante yathā citrā brahmaṇo bhūtajātayaḥ |
yathā nāśaṃ prayāntyetā yathā muktā bhavanti ca || 2 ||
