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 5.13.46

मनः प्रकृत्यैव जडं चित्तत्त्वमनुधावति ।
मांसगर्धेन मार्जारो वने मृगपतिं यथा ॥ ४६ ॥

manaḥ prakṛtyaiva jaḍaṃ cittattvamanudhāvati |
māṃsagardhena mārjāro vane mṛgapatiṃ yathā || 46 ||
