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 6.222.20

अथ स्वजगतो दृष्ट्वा हृदयं तस्य बाह्यगा ।
अहं दृष्टवती स्थूलां लोकालोकशिरश्शिलाम् ॥ २० ॥

atha svajagato dṛṣṭvā hṛdayaṃ tasya bāhyagā |
ahaṃ dṛṣṭavatī sthūlāṃ lokālokaśiraśśilām || 20 ||
