THE SATRAS - II

Sankaradeva is of the view that liberation can be attained even while alive, which is called Jivanmukti. True knowledge destroys all merit and demerit, and so in the Jivanmukti man holds his body only through the will of God. The effect of obligatory duties is not destroyed, except in so far as it produces meritorious results and helps the rise of the true knowledge; when the true knowledge dawns it does not further show itself. That is why it is regarded as the best means. In Kirtan Ghosha, he says:

"He who sees Vishnu in the entire world gets salvation forthwith even while alive. Of all the means by far the best is to deem all creatures as one's own self."

Sankaradeva. Regards Bhakti as superior to Mukti. Bhakti is also described as being itself the emancipation.
