About Concept of Moksa:
Moksa is a unique concept in Hinduism. It is a state of Supreme Bliss. It is to be free from the cycle of birth and death, ultimate goal of human life and the highest Spiritual Value. It is a state of rapture and ecstasy, a condition of happiness, where creature as a creature is abolished and becomes one with the Creator.
Avidya is the cause of bondage. Vidya is liberation. Highest Knowledge itself is liberation. Integral experience uproots avidya, which is the root cause of Samsara. So moksa is the realization of Brahman. It is Brahmanubhava, eternal communion with Brahman.
Jivanmukti is important as it bridges the life on earth with that which is be yond our perception. It shows the path how to live peacefully. A jivanmukt realizes that there is neither death not birth, neither bound nor a struggling soul, neither seeker after liberation nor a liberated one. This is the ultimate truth.
