One of four goals (Purushartha) of human`s life.


The liberation in the broad sense.
This term can be found in Ayurveda. For example, rakta-moksha means «bloodletting».

Moksha is liberation of soul from the limitations and different dependencies (sanskaras, malas etc.). This way Nirvana and moksha are different names of the same process.
