moksha |ˈmōkSHə| (noun): (in Hinduism and Jainism) release from the cycle of rebirth impelled by the law of karma. The transcendent state attained as a result of being released from the cycle of rebirth. ORIGIN: from Sanskrit mokṣa. The simplest translation for the word is a comparison: While Buddhism believe in Nirvana, Hinduism believes in Moksha.
Moksha derives from the Goddess Saraswati, a Hindu deity. She is represented in Hindu mythology as the divine consort (wife) of Lord Brahma, the Creator of the Universe. Her name in Sanskrit means “essence of self” – for “Sara” translates to “essence,” and “Swati” translates to “self.” She is the goddess of music, art, and knowledge. Only educated, intelligent individuals worship Goddess Saraswati for her knowledge and wisdom. They believe only she can grant them moksha: final liberation of the soul.
