Answer
Dear Vineet,

Thank you for your question.

Moksha means liberation, but liberation from what? It is liberation from identification with any body-mind pattern in any realm high or low. It is discovering the true Self that was never bound and that is Sat-Cit-Ananda, Being, Consciousness, Bliss.

Frankly, I've never found it a good way to make money, though.

Best wishes
