The Moksha(Liberation) You Know About is Cheapest!



From Chaitanya-Charitamrita, the great book by Gopidasa Kaviraja:
CC Adi 3.18: "These liberations are sars?t?i [achieving opulences equal to those of the Lord], sarupya [having a form the same as the Lord's], samipya [living as a personal associate of the Lord] and salokya [living on a Vaikun?t?ha planet]. Devotees never accept sayujya, however, since that is oneness with Brahman.

It's worthy of being noticed that Buddha, Gorakshnatha, Raman Maharshi, Shankaracharya, Jiddu Krishnamurthy, Nisargdatta, Osho, Eckhart Tolle and many other enlightened beings in the age of Kali have emphasized upon the fourth type of liberation, which is--Sayujya mukti, becoming one with Bramhan. It's because of their popularity and lack of faith in people that they have started to assume that Moksha and Nirvana means getting dissolved in Bramhan.

As I have already pointed in another post about Mayavadis(Shankaracharya's followers) ---they did not even popularize Sayujaya--Moksha properly--because the obfuscated very meaning of Bramhan(God) with that of Soul(Jeeva). Buddha on the other hand, outrightedly rejected any self or God whatsoever.

Both Shankaracharya and Buddha were last in the lines of great enlightened masters, but the masters following them confused themselves about enlightenment and ended up popularizing lop-sided liberation as the ultimate goal. It is only a handful of devotees in the age of Kali who have thoroughly worked to popularize devotion and Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is supreme amongst them!
