Moksha (Sanskrit: मोक्ष, liberation) or Mukti (Sanskrit: विमुक्ति, release) refers, in general, to liberation from the cycle of death and rebirth.
Moksha is seen as a final release from one's worldly conception of self, the loosening of the shackle of experiential duality and a re-establishment in one's own fundamental nature, though the nature is seen as ineffable and beyond sensation.
Moksha in the sacred Hindu temple dance, as in the classical Indian dance too, is symbolized by Shiva raising his right leg, as if freeing himself from the gravitation of the material world.

 Moksha Journal - Meditation: The Making of Images by Antonio T. de Nicolas
Since the external communications system has also, through language and its repetition, through the use of the faculties and the repetition of this use, sensitized the subject into a series of body sensations and their habitual comfort, the new system of communications will aim precisely at destroying, suspending, this habitualization.
A new language is given the retreatant, a new memory and a new imagination.
It is on this condition that the primary text and primary technology produces not only a language but also the possibility of its articulation, either as a private araculation to a spiritual guide, or as a public articulation for the public domain.

Hence it is quite proper that we conform strictly to the pattern of the rites and the language in which they have been transmitted to us.
It would, perhaps, be helpful if a general description of the rites and the meaning of the mantras are given first in the spoken language, followed by the rituals in the traditional manner.
It should not be forgotten here that even in other religions, the religious rites and ceremonies are being conducted in the language of the original scriptures.

The whole gamut of things that have the status of wakefulness or knowledge or stern logical systems -- to raise them to the status of sleep/dream is to efface the walls between truth and untruth, the existent and the non-existent.
In the symbolism of Alf-Laila, it is life: the right to life on par with the king's right to it; the commingling of the king's being with the queen's; the uniting of God and man; or, in other words, liberation.
In the space between the two roads which are open to language in this world of the heartless and the brainless -- of binding itself to either science or literature -- it is clearly seen that each presents an inverted image of itself in the opposite mirror.
