The Holy Science

Chapter II   

Abhishtam    The Goal  


Sutra 1


Transliteration of Sanskrit sloka   

Atho muktijijnasa  |1|  

Hence there is desire for emancipation  


Liberation, the prime object . When man understands even by way of inference the true nature of this creation, the true relation existing between this creation and himself; and when he further understands that he is completely blinded by the influence of Darkness, Maya, and that it is the bondage of Darkness alone which makes him forget his real Self and brings about all his sufferings, he naturally wishes to be relieved from all these evils. This relief from evil, or liberation from the bondage of Maya, becomes the prime object of his life.
