A soul is considered to break free from the cycle of death and births after the soul attains Moksha. According to Advaita Vedanta, a soul can be liberated either while living or after death.

* Ordinary Mukti
* Videh Mukti
* Param Mukti
Videha Mukti belongs to the category of ordinary Mukti. Threefold nature of God is described in Vedanta as Infinite Knowledge, Power and Bliss. Ordinary Mukti is not granted to all. It is granted to a few good people after they die. These souls are bound to experience Infinite Bliss. Videha Mukti is a liberation that is gained while in the body.
