Moksha and salvation

"In Hinduism, Moksha is seen as a transcendence of phenomenal being, much like a state of higher consciousness. For Hindus, liberation is much like salvation; it is experienced in this very life as a termination of a sense of egoism, and instead an eternal, pure spirit is uncovered.
