In Indian religions and Indian philosophy, moksha (a.k.a. vimoksha, vimukti and mukti) means emancipation, liberation and release. In traditional literature this "freedom" is either freedom from The Body (i.e. freedom from Samsara, the cycle of rebirth and death) or freedom from the litltle self (i.e. Nirvana or, in Lightning Path terms, Connection and identification with the Resident Monadic Consciousness).

According to Hindu thought, Moksha is one of the four aspects and Puruṣārtha (goals) of human life, the others being dharma (virtuous, proper, "right", moral life), artha (prosperous, secure, stable "right" life), and kama (happiness).

The 8thc. Hindu Poem Vivekachudamani treats of Moksha.

In Lightning Path terms, Moksha is acceptance of Self as God, acceptance of Reality, and realization of unity and oneness with The Fabric of Consciousness

Moksha may be distinguished from the Buddhist Nirvana.
