Abstract:

In this paper I attempt to understand the implications of Sakara's claim that liberation is not an action. If liberation is not an action, how is it up to us and therefore our responsibility? What role do actions have in a life concerned with liberation? The key to understanding Sakara's view, I suggest, requires broad reflection on his claim in his commentary on Brahma Sutra I.1.4 that cessation of action in accordance with Vedic prohibition is not an action. I will conclude by discussing the implications of this interpretation on the nature of māyā in Sakara.
