Yoga Vasishta on a Liberated Person or Jivan Mukta

O Rama, there is no intellect, no ignorance, no mind and no individual soul (jiva). They are all imagined in Brahman.Like an empty vessel in space, the knower of Truth is empty both within and without, while at the same time he is full within and without like a vessel immersed in the ocean. The noble-hearted man whose desires of the heart have come to an end is a liberated man; it does not matter whether he does or does not practice meditation or perform action. The idea of Self in the non-Self is bondage. Abandonment of it is liberation. There is neither bondage nor liberation for the ever-free Self.
