Hinduism - What Is Moksha In Hindu Spirituality?


Moksha is one of the four purusharthas, or life goals, in Indian philosophy; the others are artha (money, power, and success), kama (desire), and dharma (proper action) (righteousness).

The ultimate liberation of the human soul (atman) from the cycle of reincarnation is known as moksha (samsara).

Questioning and eventually distancing oneself from regular social interests is part of the search for liberation.

Despite the fact that all four purusharthas are lawful and sanctioned, emancipation is often seen as the final aim, the last objective to be achieved after the other three's joys and pains have been satisfied.

Moksha is likewise permanent, offering complete and perfect liberation, while the other three are transient since they are sought in the ever-changing world of wants.

The eleventh day (ekadashi) of the bright half of Margashirsha (November–December) is celebrated as #

Mokshada Ekadashi is devoted to Vishnu, as are other eleventh-day observances.

Most Hindu holidays have mandated ceremonies, which generally include fasting (upavasa) and devotion, and frequently promise particular rewards if performed faithfully.

The soul is said to get ultimate emancipation (moksha) if this festival is faithfully observed.
