Karmic Doorways Series
Moksha in Sanskrit means freedom. Our freedom from the cycle of birth and re-birth or spiritual enlightenment. When Moksha becomes the goal, every action we do will be for spiritual growth. In Vedic texts, the four Purusharthas means the aims of human pursuit towards spiritual growth are kama, artha, dharma, and moksha.
Kama means pleasure, our desire to experience love, beauty, and delight.
Artha means wealth, the material security that we need to survive and prosper.
Dharma means duty or morality, our service to the greater good based on truth and honesty.
Moksha means liberation.
For spiritual growth to occur, we need to integrate and balance all four Purusharthas while keeping dharma as our primary goal.
Dharma is necessary for Artha to be meaningful. The abundance of Artha is essential to enjoy Kama. The path to spiritual enlightenment is achieved only by the harmonious interaction of dharma, artha, and kama. Liberation or Moksha is the supreme or the highest bliss. Every action we take can be and should be to develop the process of spiritual growth, which is understanding the truth of ourselves while living in a world faced with challenges and ignorance.
