A description of the experience
Alain Danielou – While the Gods Play
WHEN a created being, at whatever stage he finds himself, that of man or of god, reaches the highest level of awareness and perceives the nature of the world, he identifies himself with the plan, with Purusha, ... He leaves what is created and makes his way back to the Bindu, the initial point. This is what is called the final passage or liberation (moksha), also called the "instantaneous or total end of the world" (atyantika pralaya) from the point of view of the individuality.
