Maharshi Mehi Paramhans Ji Maharaj on Liberation

Mukti or liberation means to be freed. To be freed from what? From the body and the world. Liberation takes place when one is freed from the body and the world.

There is a strong relationship between this body (of ours) and the world. Our body is made up of precisely those very elements of which the world is made as well.
There are as many layers or levels of the world such as the gross layer, the subtle or astral layer, etc as there are in this body.
This body is called pind or microcosm and the world is called the brahmaand or the macrocosm.
At a given point of time a person remains or lives at the same level of the world as at the layer of the body in which he is living currently. Similarly, if one leaves or rises above any layer of the pind or body, he also transcends the corresponding layer of the brahmaand or world.
Thus, it is known that if one can transcend all the levels of his/her body, he can transcend all the levels of the world as well.
