Moksha results from the extinction of false knowledge, which causes the extinction of dosha, lust and hate, which estinguish all karmas, which again results in the cessation of all birth, which again results in the annulment of sorrow. The steps for the attainment of moksha are indicated by this sutra thus: Endeavor must be made to remove the false and illusory knowledge that we possess by acquiring true knowledge of the world and God. True knowledge will destroy the two evils, lust and hate, which taint the soul. 

When lust and hate are removed from the mind, then the tendency to all action is extinguished; and when action ceases, birth disappears entirely When birth is at an end, sorrow ceases and moksha is attained where the soul is free from the cycle of births and deaths. Hence according to Indian thinkers, moksha is that perfect state of supreme bliss where there is the cessation of the effects of karma. But there is difference of opinion as regards the details of this ideal of moksha.  According to the Advaita school moksha is of two kinds, the vaideha mukti and jeevan mukti. The two kinds are sometimes also referred to as sadyo - mukti and krama mukti.
