Moksha = moha + kshaya

moha = delusion
kshaya = eradication

State where there is no delusion and all karma are eradicated.

Means of Moksha:

  1. samyak darsana - right perception (inclination or belief),
  2. samyak jnana - right knowledge (cognition),
  3. samyak charitra - right conduct

These three combined are the three jewels.
