Liberation (Skt. mokṣa; Tib. ཐར་པ་, Wyl. thar pa) usually means freedom from samsara, either by attaining the state of an arhat or the state of perfect enlightenment of a buddha. It can also occasionally have the meaning of performing the action of liberation, a practice to liberate the consciousness of a malignant being into a buddha field.[1]
