What is moksha and how does one reach it?
Moksha is the freedom from the vicious cycle of life, death, and rebirth. In hinduism, people are divided into different varnas, or groups in the caste system. When people are reincarnated, they either go up a level, or down a level, depending on their karma. When one is reincarnated over and over, they will finally reach moksha, or the state of perfect peace.

Attaining moksha is the highest goal of Hinduism. One can attainmoksha by either meditating, chanting name of god, doing good deedsor doing yoga.
By loving all.
To understand Moksha we must first understand Reincarnation. THE CONVENTIONAL CONCEPT OF REINCARNATION: Reincarnation means entry of our soul into the body of an animal or a h…uman being after our death. Good deeds enable to be born into higher caste family and bad deeds make us to be born into a lower caste family. THE CONVENTIONAL CONCEPT OF MOKSHA: Moksha is defined as liberation from unending cycles of Reincarnation. Moksha makes us one with Brahman and enables us to have Brahmajnana, the supreme Hindu knowledge. The conventional Hindu concept of Moksha may be confusing because we would be getting Brahmajnana after our death or more probably, after many deaths. REINCARNATION ACCORDING TO BRAHMAJNANA: Reincarnation means transformation of an activity every time it is repeated. It is this transformation that we have to prevent to attain Moksha. However, we have to prevent transformation of every activity of our life. Fortunately, we would be attaining Moksha in the present life only. MOKSHA ACCORDING TO BRAHMAJNANA: Moksha means abolition of transformation of an activity every time it is repeated. The aim is to execute the activity with pure facilitating force (Saguna Brahman). During rest we would have pure retarding force (Nirguna Brahman) Thus, Moksha would enable us to become one with Brahman, the supreme Hindu god. FACTORS THAT CAUSE TRANSFORMATION OF ACTIVITIES WHEN THEY ARE REPEATED: 1. TIME: Increase or decrease of time available for the execution of the activity 2. THE MODES: The modes cause the activity to interact with other activities 1. Shudra/ chaotic mode - No interaction with other activities 2. Vaishya/ tolerable mode - Interaction through a lower limit 3. Kshatriya/ normal mode- Through an upper and a lower limit 4. Brahmana/ ideal mode - Upper and lower limit is the same and interaction with all the activities of life. It is obvious that in the Shudra mode there would be chaotic changes and in the Brahmana mode, no change at all. 3. THE GODS: There are seven basic Hindu gods. They are, 1. Indra - god of dreaming 2. Shakti - god of illusion 3. Brahma - god of creativity 4. Vishnu - god of stabilization 5. Shiva - god of determination 6. Shani - god of status alteration 7. Yama - god of compulsion Unintentional change of god before re execution would result in transformation of the activity. The seven basic Hindu gods are derived from Brahman. Conversely, the seven gods put together form Brahman. Thus, to attain Moksha we must always use the seven gods together as a single unit. However, for simplicity we use just one god, either Shiva or Krishna incarnation of Vishnu to attain Moksha.
Moksha is the acheivement of freedom from the rebirth cycle.
the cycle of death and life
Moksha is important because it ends the soul's or conciousness's suffering and pain.
Mind has influence of food we eat and therefore for pure mind foood should be complete violence free. Vegetable is also has life .we shuold eat non-violence food.pure mind… is pure soul and pure soul hhas Moksh only.
To get moksha, one should be sincere in his works and then he attains moksha. Moksha does not mean the salvation of the body but the salvation of the mind.
MOKSHA AND KARMA: Moksha is defined as freedom from unending cycles of reincarnation. Karma is the cause for the unending cycles of reincarnations. These Hindu beliefs about …Karma and Moksha are useless for attaining Moksha. This is because Moksha leads to Brahman, which is nothing but absolute fact. Therefore, our definitions of Karma and Moksha should be based on facts and not on beliefs. We can't attain Moksha through good deeds. We can't attain Moksha by supposing that god is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. God has to be within us and dormant. CONVENTIONAL WAYS OF ATTAINING MOKSHA: Life today is extremely complicated. Therefore, we can't attain Moksha through Bhakti Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Karma Yoga and Raja Yoga. BRAHMAJNANA CONCEPT OF MOKSHA AND KARMA: To attain Moksha we need definitions of Moksha and Karma based on Brahmajnana. According to Brahmajnana, 1. Moksha is separation of facilitating force (Saguna Brahman) and retarding force (Nirguna Brahman). 2. Karma is variations in facilitating/ retarding forces, which causes transformation of an activity every time it is re executed. Lesser the Karma, lesser would be transformation of activities and greater would be the Moksha. ATTAINING MOKSHA: All the skeletal muscles of our body can isometrically contract and relax (harden and soften temporarily) as a single unit called Purusha. 1. Saguna Brahman - isometric contraction of Purusha 2. Nirguna Brahman - isometric relaxation of Purusha. THE SEVEN MANIFESTATIONS OF BRAHMAN: Brahman manifests as seven basic Hindu gods viz. Indra, Shakti, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Shani and Yama. All the seven basic Hindu gods are made of a Saguna component and a Nirguna component. They differ from each other in the gap between the arrival of the Nirguna component after the arrival of the Saguna component. In Indra the Nirguna component comes simultaneously, in Vishnu in the middle and in Yama in the end. Therefore, Indra just enables us to dream and Yama makes us compulsive. The Peripheral pair of gods Indra and Yama cause maximum Karma. The more central gods cause less Karma. THE VARNAS: 1. Shudra Varna - no limits for our actions 2. Vaishya Varna - just a lower limit 3. Kshatriya Varna - an upper and a lower limit 4. Brahmana Varna - upper and lower limits are the same. A higher Varna makes us more disciplined, reduces fluctuations in facilitating/ retarding forces, reduces Karma and enhances Moksha. THE FOUR TYPES OF TIME: 1. Transient time - by separating life into infinite activities, each having a different status. 2. Virtual time - by having a minimum duration for completion of actions but no maximum duration 3. Natural time - by having a minimum and maximum duration for completion of every action. 4. Eternal time - by making the status of all actions the same. This would merge all activities into a single giant activity called life. Then no activity would have a beginning and no activity would have and end. Transient time results in maximum Karma. Eternal mode of time result in Moksha. BRAHMANDA: After appeasing the seven gods, having all the four Varnas and the four kinds of time, by default we would be having 1. Vishnu 2. Lower limit for status of all activities 3. Minimum duration needed for execution of actions. This state is Brahmanda. We would have 50% tone and 50% control over all activities of our life. ABSOLUTE MOKSHA: From here we can have 0% or 100% control. From this state we can appease any god, have any Varna and use any mode of time. This freedom is what we call absolute Moksha. ORIGINAL MEDITATION - THE BEST WAY TO ATTAIN MOKSHA: The best way of achieving all these is Original Meditation, the kind of Meditation Vedic people practiced. This is just a set of isometric exercises. We can't understand the Vedas without mastering Original Meditation. The name 'Vedic Meditation' means something else. Therefore that name is not used here.
No where because the word 'you or I' does not exist.
Moksha, more commonly referred to as Nirvana in Buddhism, is a liberation from Samsara (a cycle of rebirth and suffering). Nirvana is the end goal of the Buddhist path, as it …is referred to as "the highest happiness." In this way, Moksha could be called a transcendence into another, utopian world. To reach Moksha/Nirvana, a person must free themselves from all desires, anger, and other afflicting states.
A soul that acheves moksha is free from wants, fear, and pain. EVENTS THAT OCCUR AFTER ATTAINING MOKSHA We would realize that, 1. All the activities merge i…nto a single giant activity called life. 2. Under chaotic conditions life is analog (It depends), which after Moksha becomes digital (Do / Don't). Thus, dreams are directly converted into actions. 3. Negative attitude raises to become one with the positive attitude. This also eradicates manual force between the attitudes, that we use to tide over a crisis and is responsible for Karma. 4. Life becomes extremely flexible but perfectly reversible 5. All data that we have merge to form a single pool of knowledge. This knowledge is analog. Therefore, it is not compatible with Modern languages. 6. We would be able to understand all aspects of life including god, science, emotions, consciousness, mental disorders, etc. 7. All sensations merge to form the sixth sense. Use of sense organs individually becomes forbidden. 8. We appear differently to different people. This enables us to appease people of very diverse natures. 9. Interposed between our body and mind is a three dimensional, bi directional user interface, which also acts as a bi directional analyzer, filter and buffer. The three dimensions are, 1. Vertical - In this dimension are the seven basic Hindu gods, viz. Indra, Shakti, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Shani and Yama, 2. Horizontal/ Left to right - the four Varnas, viz. Brahmana, Kshatriya, Vaishya and Shudra, 3. Horizontal / Back to front - the four kinds of time, viz. 1. At any time 2. In between 3. Before 4. henever possible 10. It is the above variable factors that are responsible for Karma and cause transformation of an activity every time we repeat it, which is what we call Reincarnation. 11. Brahman is the Complete Origional User Interface of life, working automatically. 12. Use of gods, Varnas, and time, both manually and automatically, would enable us to understand the how life is autocorrected. This knowlede is what we call Brahmajnana. 13. Under ideal conditions all the seven gods merge to form the supreme Hindu god Brahman, we would have Brahmana Varna and eternal time. This state is called as 'eternal bliss'. This is the ultimate state of life a Hindu can have. Thus, we would feel that after Moksha life would be effortless, efficient, mistake free and we would know how it works.
The spiritual goal of a Hindu is to become one with Brahma. This freedom is referred to as moksha. Until moksha is achieved, a Hindu believes that he/she will be repeatedly re…incarnated in order that he/she may work towards self-realization of the truth (the truth being that only Brahman exists, nothing else).
All most all the religions in the world talk about moksha or salvation. To achieve this one has to eliminate dual concepts and align or live with the fact that "I" am every th…ing. Entire Universe is made/created/maintained/destroyed out of One Key source/intelligence which exists/participates in every atom of creation but still maintains itself separate. One has to overcome this duality to realise his/her own self as "I" am that ONE. This stage is called moksha............ Regds Jayachandra email@example.com
