Mukti - an essential subject
Mukti is to be reinstated to one's original spiritual status after giving up the material conception of life. This can be achieved when one realises that he is not this body, but is the spirit soul within, and accordingly takes to gaining spiritual knowledge. Human life is meant specifically for oneself to qualify for this spiritual liberty. However, just gaining mukti is not the ultimate goal of life because there are spiritual planets much higher than where one may merge into after attaining liberation. Shaastras state that the ultimate destination for us is to go back to Lord Krishna's abode (from where one would never fall).
