World: Get Ready For MOKSHA!
Sun 4/25/2010 12:58PM
Moksha – moke-shah, skt. (1) liberation or freedom from samsara (the suffering of the endless cycle of death and rebirth); (2) performing the action of liberation, a practice to liberate consciousness (from samsara) into the field of vast awakening. (Adapted from the glossary of The Words of My Perfect Teacher, by Patrul Rinpoche
Moksha Means "Business"

From "Vegas Rocks! Magazine"- September '08 It is the ultimate irony. MOKSHA, Vegas' penultimate jam/funk band, draws it's spiritual strength from the non-commercial -- from "transcendence of phenomenal being, a state of higher consciousness, in which time, space, causation (karma) and the other features of empirical reality are understood as Maya (illusion)." Yet this Vegas music stalwart brings bigger crowds and has a stronger following than almost any other band on the scene, a result that appeals commercially to any venue lucky to have them jam on their stage and energize their cash registers
