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 6.98.23

शिखिध्वजः ।
चित्तद्रुमस्य शाखादेः कुर्वाणोऽहं विकर्तनम् ।
कथं करोमि मूलस्य निश्शेषं कषणं मुने ॥ २३ ॥

śikhidhvajaḥ |
