From Discourse III: "Vibhuti Pada- On Divine Powers"
III.56. SATTVA-PURUSAYOH SUDDHI-SAMYE KAIVALYAM
'Kaivalya(liberation) is attained when there is equality between "sattwa" (purity) and "Purusha"(the Soul)'.
Liberation takes place when the mind has the same purity as "Purusha" itself. The purified mind recognizes its nature as "Purusha". The essence of this nature is, and always has been, bliss, freedom, peace, Self- sufficiency and perfection.
