Mukta (Skt., muc, ‘release’, ‘liberation’). In Hinduism, one who has attained mokṣa or mukti. One whose liberation from attachment and desire occurs during one's life is a jivanmukta; one whose liberation occurs in the discarnate state after death is a videha-mukta. A jivanmukta, though released, remains in this world due to unripened karmic residues (karmā-śayas), as a potter's wheel continues to turn once the potter's hand is removed.
