  1. Moksha implies freedom. But freedom from what? It is freedom from ignorance (ajnana). What is ignorance? Ego is ignorance. What is Ego? One who thinks that I am the body is ego. Therefore everyone with body consciousness is bound. One who is bounded needs freedom, what does an unbounded person do with freedom?
  2. Your nature is Moksha (Freedom). Self is another name for Moksha. Moksha can never be obtained by doing something. You are free even when you desire for freedom (Moksha). Your ignorance is only distancing you from the self. Moksha is within you when there is no ignorance. Moksha (freedom) is not for the ‘I’ limited to the body but in fact moksha (freedom) is getting rid of ‘I’. Ego cannot have liberation but getting rid of ego is liberation.
  3. Many people are deluded that Moksha is an object and is available in Kailasa or Vaikunta when will you know that you are already that for which you are craving and it (Self) is within you here and now. My Dear Friends! Moksha needs to be obtained before the body’s death, as nothing can be obtained once the body perishes. Until we get moksha, we wear these bodies and can never get rid of this vicious cycle of births and rebirths.
  4. Siddhi (Miracle) is a synonym of Moksha. He is a siddha purusha who obtained the thing that always exists. But what always exists? It is the self. Aatma Siddi (self-realization) is the real siddi (miracle). All the other siddhis are nothing but dream stuff. Only a person with self-knowledge can obtain this siddhi and thereby the Jiva becomes Shiva.
  5. In this world, through this body, by understanding and by bringing to our experience is Moksha. Moksha need not be postponed until death. Moksha is not the one that needs to be obtained after death but which needs to be obtained when we are much alive.
  6. Moksha means experiencing the self and to live as self. Moksha is not an object. It is the light that shines within our heart. Only they can get rid of bondage, who utilize their body, mind words and deeds simply, naturally and appropriately, he alone will obtain Moksha (Freedom). No man can become God without removing the feeling of “I, mine”, he will never know what Freedom is!
  7. Every person is within moksha. Man’s real self and real goal is Moksha itself. But due to impurities of mind he is deluded that he is far away from moksha. Only the body consciousness and selfishness are distancing a person from his self. Due to misdeeds and misconceptions man is not able to experience the eternal bliss. The Eternal bliss that moksha brings is as pure as the Ganges from heaven (akasa Ganga) it has no impurities.
  8. Nirvana is another name for moksha. It implies going beyond body consciousness.
