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 5.45.30

तमसौ श्वपचो नागं कौतुकोदारया दृशा ।
चिरमालोकयामास स्पन्दयुक्ताचलोपमम् ॥ ३० ॥

tamasau śvapaco nāgaṃ kautukodārayā dṛśā |
ciramālokayāmāsa spandayuktācalopamam || 30 ||
