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 5.57.23

ज्ञो ज्ञतायां हि यज्ज्ञानं जानाति ज्ञानबृंहया ।
ज्ञायते तदहन्तादि जीवाद्यप्यभिजीवनैः ॥ २३ ॥

jño jñatāyāṃ hi yajjñānaṃ jānāti jñānabṛṃhayā |
jñāyate tadahantādi jīvādyapyabhijīvanaiḥ || 23 ||
