(Sanskrit, "Prati" liberation, "moksha" from cyclic existence. ) In Gnosticism, the term refers to a specific practice in which the ego is examined and revealed in a very direct way. In Buddhism, the term refers to the foundational vows taken by practitioners.


"The most elevated form of thinking is non-thinking. When one achieves the stillness and silence of the mind, the “I” with all its passions, dens, appetites, fears, affections, etc. becomes absent. It is only in the absence of the “I,” in the absence of the mind, that the Buddhata can awaken to unite with the Inner Self and take us to ecstasy."
