Liberation in a general sense means liberation from whatever that holds you back or keeps in check. There are many types of liberation. We speak here only two types of liberation, spiritual liberation and mental liberation. Mental liberation means freedom from the conditioning to which we are subject. It is liberation from the learning, beliefs, values, opinions, prejudices, judgments, worldviews, attitudes, standards, which we harbor in our minds because of our interaction with the external world.

Siva means the auspicious. That auspicious quality comes from his being present in the  macrocosm as well as in the microcosm as the purifier, liberator and sustainer. By His mere presence, the world comes to life and so also the body.

Hinduism is not an easy religion to practice. Centuries of oppression corrupted the Hindu mind with conflicting values. Hindus ought to be aware of the implications of disobeying the moral codes and the virtues of good human conduct. They ought to be aware of the consequences of their own actions that lead to their downfall.

The Chandogya and Brihadaranyaka Upanishads are like the two eyes or two wheels  of the Vedanta. Without studying them, it is difficult to gain insight into the Vedic philosophy and mindset. Both cover a wide range of topics and provide a rare glimpse, to a keen observer, into the origins of Hinduism and the development of its ritual and spiritual thought.

Upanishads are best understood when you have a good knowledge of Vedic ritual terminology and the Vedic imagery hidden in the verses. Your understanding improves greatly if you pay deep attention to the verses. The Upanishads are mostly fragments of knowledge gleaned from various sources overtime and compiled into their current format. Therefore you do not find much coherence or continuity of thought.
