~Salvation~

Salvation is a term that describes protection or rescue from harm. As a religious term, it refers to the act of saving souls from sin or suffering. In Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism, the word for salvation is moksha or mukti.

This concept is described in ancient yogic texts, such as the Upanishads and “The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.” Salvation is what occurs when someone escapes the cycle of birth, death and rebirth to reach a state of completeness. Many of these Eastern religions believe that the state of moksha can be achieved through sadhana, a set of disciplines that includes the practice of yoga and meditation.
