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.

Moksha is the acheivement of freedom from the rebirth cycle.
By loving all.
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.
Do Hindus believe that a moksha is the good and bad deeds that a person engages in over one or more lifetimes?
so that they can be freed from the cycle of birth, death and rebirth (samsara). Hindus believe that when they are freed from the samara (birth ,death, rebirth) they can be wit…h BRAHMAN (which is their god)
Path of work, path of knowledge, and path of devotion Path of work, path of knowledge, and path of devotion One has to understand that Moksha (liberation) is not so…mething very cheap to accomplish. It requires lot of determination in living austere life. When I say austere life means not like one abandon all his material comfort and go and meditate in a jungle. One who lives unattached in his existing living condition is said to be following austere life. When we talk about Moksha what does that mean.? When the soul leaves the current body it travels to it's source where it came from. For ex when a prisoner is released where he goes permanently.? He goes back to his home to re-union with his family. Similarly when the Soul leave the current body and without transmigrating from one material body to another material body it directly goes to the spiritual sky then we say the soul has attained Moksha (liberation).
the four paths to moksha are bhakti, karma, jnana and raja
Moksha is important because it ends the soul's or conciousness's suffering and pain.
There is no conflict between dharma and moksha. Dharma is doing the right thing. Moksha is moving beyond limitations. Dharma is a means to moksha. There are infi…nite ways to achieve moksha, dharma is just one path to achieving it. Most people use a combination of paths in their journey of life to attain moksha.
Most religions believe in salvation. In Hinduism, salvation is termed moksha. Hinduism believes in the moksha of the soul.
As Shri Ramakrishn Kshirasagar Swami' has said " For getting 'moksh' one should have '0' runanubandh. When we do any karm and if it is related to someone and if we or that p…erson remembers it, then 'runanubandh' automatically gets generated. That's why in 'Bhagvat Geeta' Lord Krishna has said that " Karmannevadhikaraste ma faleshu kadachan" Karma and Moksha: Before trying to understand Moksha it has to be realized that in the original form Moksha meant freedom to change Varnas and thus have unlimited knowledge (Brahma Jnana) and unlimited freedom. However, the exaggerated freedom made individual life and the society unstable and thus Moksha was redefined making not only Moksha but also Karma and Reincarnation look enigmatic. Karma: Karma is the mechanism that enables us to blend Moving and Braking forces of thoughts and activities in four different ways, thus enabling us to have four different Varnas. In the redefined form, Karma means a deed and good Karma or good deed enables us to have a higher Varna in the next life. Moksha: Originally Moksha meant freedom to change Varnas. In the redefined form Moksha means release from cycles of Reincarnation. In the original form, to attain Moksha, one had to prevent reincarnation or transformation of activities that is inevitable when an activity is repeated. The transformation is due to variations in Braking or Inertial force associated with activities. Thus, in the original form, Karma is the mechanism that enables us to have all the four Varnas and Moksha is the freedom that the four Varnas give. In the redefined form, good Karma enables us to escape from repeated cycles of reincarnation.
It would take 20 years............ or more than that.......... If you have good behavior, good thoughts you would achieve that in a small time.......... but if u are like the …rude persons it would take after your life........... For some it may take a second. There is no written guarantee that a person will get moksha ,even though it is the ultimate goal of human. It may take births and hundreds or thousands of re-birth ,to finally understand the meaning of moksha,and many re-birth to satisfy all your desires (even from previous births) finally to reach the goal.
Moksha or Nirvana is deliverance in Hinduism from the cycle of birth and death with the intervening periods of stay in heaven and hell according to a person's good and bad dee…ds. This happens when the person has no bad deeds in his/her account. Hindus believe that all people are governed by this rule, hindus as well as those who are not. Acting according to 'dharma' adds to the good deeds and cancels bad deeds. 'Dharma' is fulfillment of one's duties and responsibilities and engaging in righteous action.
The two primary forces of Human beings: To know what Moksha is, we must know that we have, 1. A mighty, inexhaustible and uncontrollable Involuntary force 2. A small, tra…nsient and easily controllable Voluntary force. Brahman is Involuntary force in the purest form. All other Hindu gods are a blend of Involuntary and Voluntary forces. Thus, we can attain Moksha easily through a Hindu god by getting rid of the voluntary component of that god. Shiva and Krishna are best suited for this purpose. Voluntary/ Manual force - the double edged sword: The Voluntary force is the shockabsorber of our life, as it enables us to change with great ease. However, its over use makes our life unstable, chaotic and also abolishes thinking. It is at this stage that we must attain Moksha. This involves getting rid of, 1. Differences among the various activities of our life 2. Our ability to change. Advantages of Involuntary/ Automatic force: Leading a life with pure involuntary force would, 1. Make our life effortless and stress free 2. Get rid of our acquired knowledge and enable us to use pure Inborn knowledge called Brahma Jnana. The Hindu paths to Moksha: The transient, manual force is necessary to deal with a change and thus whenever we become helpless we have a tendency to use it and thus make our life stressful and tiring. There are four ways of avoiding use of voluntary force and getting rid of it from our life. 1. Bhakti Marga: In this we develop faith in the involuntary force and keep using it even if it leads to repeated disasters, until the involuntary force, 1. Finds similarities among all the activities of our life 2. Gets rid of activities that are grossly dissimilar 2. Karma Marga: The Karma acts as a band filter, filtering off activities producing both positive and negative emotions and allowing just unemotional activites. Cycles of rebirth doesn't mean that we are born again and again. It is just symbolic of repeated starting of a new ways of life whenever our life is ruined. 3. Jnana Marga: In this we try to find out similarities among all activities of our life and ways to discard or ignore differences among them. 4. Raja Marga: Since the Involuntary force is mightier, in this approach we use it with Kingly authority, with the hope that voluntary activities surrender, thus enabling us to execute all the activities with the Involuntary force only. Original Meditation - the easiest and the most reliable way to attain Moksha: In this, we sit motionless and keep generating involuntary force, by Isometrically contracting (hardening) the lower end of the band like Hyoglossus muscles, that extend from the sides of our tongue downwards to the U-shaped hyoid bone above our Adam's apple. This would filter off all Voluntary activities and thus enable us to attain Moksha. This is the final common pathway to Moksha even when we use any one of the Margas to attain Moksha. Original Meditation was the first choice of all sages, who attained Moksha.
Nirvana (nibbana) is the end of suffering and freedom from defilements of mind, such as aggression, craving, and delusion. It is the end of the seemingly endless cycle of birt…h and death. According to the Buddha, one can reach it by following the Noble Eightfold Path.
