MOKSHA (Liberation) is generally believed to be a state available after death. The perception around this is flawed. Since no one knows what happens after death, how can liberation be experienced after death ? Liberation has to be experienced before death.
If liberation is felt and experienced when one is alive, then one is guaranteed of liberation after death too. It is to be understood that whatever is our state while we are alive, whatever conditions we impose on the mind while we are alive and whatever impressions we imprint on the mind would be carried after death to as “post-death” state is a continuation of the same life force which we are in while being alive.
As death is only of the ‘physical’ and not of the ‘soul’, it continues to remain alive on its conditions, impressions and feelings even after our death. Here comes the concept of ‘heaven’ and ‘hell’. The soul experiences ‘good’ states or ‘tragic’ states depending on what its nature was while it was “alive” with the body. Again, most people have this notion that ‘heaven’ or ‘hell’ are two physical places where the physical body stays after death. Heaven and Hell are not physical locations
THEY ARE MENTAL STATES ——– which the mind goes through depending on the good or sinful thoughts / vibrations that it emanates while in the physical body.
