Article XXIV: Moksha

Amritabindu Upanishad
15: Being covered by Maya, which is a mere sound, It does not, through darkness, know the Akasha (the Blissful one). When ignorance is rent asunder, It being then Itself only sees the unity.

Continuing with the analogy of the jar from Article XXII and Article XXIII: Just as man's sight is blinded in the dark, and just as the akasha in the jar is bound, maya covers jiva, the individual soul. However, with light man's sight is restored, by breaking the jar the bound akasha becomes one with the infinite Akasha, and by destroying maya, the jiva can realize its true nature as Brahman -- pure Existence-Consciousness-Bliss, beyond space, time and causation. This freedom from maya is indeed moksha.
