TEXT 266

yadyapi se mukti haya pañca-parakāra
sālokya-sāmīpya-sārūpya-sārṣṭi-sāyujya āra


yadyapi—although; se—that; mukti—liberation; haya—is; pañca-parakāra—of five different varieties; sālokya—of the name sālokya; sāmīpya—of the name sāmīpya; sārūpya—of the name sārūpya; sārṣṭi—of the name sārṣṭi; sāyujya—of the name sāyujya; āra—and.


“There are five kinds of liberation: sālokya, sāmīpya, sārūpya, sārṣṭi and sāyujya.


Sālokya means that after material liberation one is promoted to the planet where the Supreme Personality of Godhead resides, sāmīpya means remaining an associate of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, sārūpya means attaining a four-handed form exactly like that of the Lord., sārṣṭi means attaining opulences like those of the Supreme Lord, and sāyujya means merging into the Brahman effulgence of the Lord. These are the five types of liberation.
