positive bliss

In Upanisads Moksa is viewed as a state of absorption into the universal nature of Brahman where the individual merges into the universal spirit…  Moksa is atma svarupa labha a state when the soul attains its original inherent nature…  In Bhagavad Gita the nature of Moksa is God…

 

For The Vedanta Samkara sees the soul in its true nature being identical to Brahman…

The soul maintains its own nature for Ramanuja… Focus is on meditation ‘upasana’

 

The Buddhist Nirvana is the cooling down of the fire of passions… 

‘nibbanam paramam sukham’…  Nirvana brings positive bliss…

 

the Bhagavad Gita depicts three paths to attain Moksa…’jnana’ the path of knowledge, ‘bhakti’ the path of devotion, and ‘karma’ the path of action

the ‘varnasrama dharmas’ are a set of guidelines the ‘svadharma’ essential means to free the soul

 

The Samkhya insist on mere knowledge in the absence of the dharmas…

 

The Buddhist concept of Moksa of the eightfold discipline falls under the three heads…prajna, sila, and samadhi… Buddhism speaks of eight silas ‘attha sila’, and ten silas ‘dasa sila’ for the attainment of Nirvana

 

Jainism has three jewels to follow to attain Moksa…right faith, right knowledge, and right conduct… The Jaina concept believes that the soul possesses four infinites in its inherent nature ‘ananta catustaya’ infinite bliss, infinite power, infinite faith, and infinite knowledge

 

Moksa is the absence of pain and suffering and complete freedom of the cycle of birth and death…  pure consciousness, pure knowledge, and eternal bliss…

 

Of the Vedanta Samkara believes that knowledge alone is capable of giving us Moksa…

Samkara points out the Moksa is not the product of works it is the product of mind…
