In Hindu traditions, Moksha is a central concept and included as one of the four aspects and goals of human life.
The other three goals are Dharma (virtuous, proper, moral life), Artha (material prosperity, income security, means of life), and Kama (pleasure, sensuality, emotional fulfillment).
Together, these four aims of life are called Puruṣārth, (the goal of human existence).
meaning to spiritually free, let go, release, liberate
Moksha has been defined not merely as absence of suffering and release from bondage to saṃsāra (continuous flow of life in death and rebirth), various schools of Hinduism also explain the concept as presence of the state of paripurna-brahmanubhava (oneness with Brahma, the One Supreme Self), a state of knowledge, peace and bliss.
For example, Vivekachudamani - an ancient book on Moksha, explains one of many meditative steps on the path to moksha, as:
जाति नीति कुल गोत्र दूरगं नाम रूप गुण दोष वर्जितम् | देश काल विषया तिवर्ति यद् ब्रह्म तत्त्वमसि भाव यात्मनि ||२५४||
Beyond caste, creed, family or lineage, that which is without name and form, beyond merit and demerit, that which is beyond space, time and sense-objects, you are that, God himself; Meditate this within yourself. ||Verse 254||

Moksha is experiencing others and ourselves as Divine Essence by any name. The name could be God, Brahma, Atman, Indweller, Great Spirit, the All, the Universe, or any other name of personal choosing …
what name one chooses is simply how one experiences the Divine.
With deft intentionality, Morrighan, one of the founders of Moksha Magick, coined its name, as we know it today. She summarized two of the biggest concepts incorporated into the fledgling practice and came up with the bite-sized phrase communicating exactly what Moksha Magick is.
We will start by looking at the word "Moksha" used on its own to understand why we use it in the title Moksha Magick, and its vital importance to the practice.
Very loosely, Moksha means to spiritually free, let go, release, and liberate. It is a Sanskrit term. Going deeper, it is the release from the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth; thus, the implications of that release and liberation are in a way that sets us spiritually free.
Its vehicle is in the definition of Moksha as the unification of man and God [Oneness with Brahma, the One Supreme Self]. This is the acknowledgement of our own sacredness and Oneness with all Creation.
This premise of our Divine Essence is a focal point of Moksha Magick.
Recognizing and embracing ourselves as God by any name, changes our worldview. When we experience ourselves as the Divine, there will no longer be a distinction between our consciousness that experiences something, and the cause of our experience as separate. There is no longer a “we and they,” “I and you,” or an “I and it.” This experience profoundly transfigures our consciousness. We see, and act, as One, for we are One.
“Moksha” is not an isolated concept on our Divinity.
Other sources defining the Atman [the Indweller as God]
The Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, another Vedic Text, describes the Atman as that in which everything exists, which is of the highest value, which permeates everything, which is the essence of all; it is bliss and beyond description. This is as Brahman (Universal Absolute, Supreme Soul), and associates it with everything one is, everything one can be, one's free will, one's desire, what one does, what one doesn't do, the good in oneself, the bad in oneself.
This theme of Atman includes everyone. Every being is the same as Brahman. That theme repeats extensively in the Upanishad.
The Upanishad asserts that this knowledge of "I am Brahman", and that there is no difference between "I" and "you", or "I" and "him" is a source of liberation, and not even gods can prevail over such a liberated man.
This concept of Moksha as our Divine Self is also in Jainism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, and Christianity. Of the latter two:
Geneses 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:”
Genesis 3:22 “And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us …”
John 10:34. “Jesus answered them … Ye are gods …”
Biblical references from the King James Bible, verses as quoted
The point of “Moksha” becomes this: By embracing our Divine Essence as real and alive within us, our capabilities of performing Miracles as Magick are unlimited. The deeper we embrace this, the more powerful and proficient we become.
Moksha changes our perspectives.
Moksha empowers us. Moksha liberates us.
Within Moksha is our Sacredness.
