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 4.22.6

मनः सङ्कल्पमात्रेण गन्धर्वपुरवत्क्षणात् ।
तनोतीदमसद्दृश्यं ब्राह्मीं दृष्टिमिव त्यजत् ॥ ६ ॥

manaḥ saṅkalpamātreṇa gandharvapuravatkṣaṇāt |
tanotīdamasaddṛśyaṃ brāhmīṃ dṛṣṭimiva tyajat || 6 ||
