Description

This book is an important Sanskrit treatise chiefly dealing with understanding and explaining the state of ‘being spiritually free while living’. A highly revered book written sometime in 13th century, it is read with great interest by all genuine seekers of spirituality. There are a few English translations of Jivanmukti Viveka already in print, but the present one has the additional benefit of copious notes that commentator has added to it.

EXCERPTS:

What is liberation in (this very) life? What evidence is there regarding this? Even if there be some), how is it accomplished? What is the use of accomplishing it?

(We will) say (in answer to such a query): For a living man, the nature of mind, thinking ‘I am the doer’, ‘I am the enjoyer’, ‘I am happy’, ‘I am unhappy’ etc., leads to suffering and bondage: the removal of these is Jivanmukti–liberation in life.
