Engaged Emanicipation : Mind, Morals, and Make-Believe in the Moksopaya (Yogavasistha)

In the Moksopaya (also known as the Yogavasistha), an eleventh-century Sanskrit poetic text, the great Vedic philosopher Vasistha counsels his young protege Lord Rama about the ways of the world through sixty-four stories designed to bring Rama from ignorance to wisdom. Much beloved, this work reflects the philosophy of Kashmir Saivism. Precisely because all worldly pursuits are dreamlike and fiction-like, the human soul must first come to an experience of non-dualistic, mind-only metaphysics, and after attaining this wisdom, promote moral activism. Another important discussion in the Moksopaya/Yoga-vasistha centers space (akasa). Space, in addition to the term akasa, is referred to as nabha, vyoma, vyat, gagana, kha, and ambara. In its various uses, it can refer to a gap, a hole, a slit in a physical sense. It also refers to the field of possibilities, serving as the locus of all things.

`Engaged Emanicipation' is a wide-ranging consideration of this work and the philosophical and spiritual questions addressed by philosophers, Sanskritists, and scholars of religion, literature, and science. Contributors allow readers to walk with Rama as his melancholy and transform into connectivity, peace, and spiritual equipoise.
