“Seek spiritual riches within. What you are is much greater than anything or anyone else you have ever yearned for. And remember, the fear of not having, disguises the reality that we have everything.”
Translating to ‘liberation’, Moksha means to attain the ultimate objective of life. It is achieved when one realises their own inner self. It is generally known to be the ‘Paramapurushartha’ (most important Purushartha). In Hinduism, Dharma, Artha and Kama are actually the original Purusarthas, Moksha is a later inclusion.
In Hinduism, attaining Moksha Purushartha is considered to be the supreme goal of human beings. It is the experience of the flow and fusion of the Shiva and Shakti energies in one’s self. The experience of union, oneness or Ekatvam with one’s Higher Self is Moksha. This is considered as the supreme Purusharthas, which a person generally attains at a very older age.
