The sign moksha' is often in Western discourse labelled liberation' – liberation from the suffering of infinite numbers of re-births. The issue with moksha ‘ or liberation ‘ is that the sign at closer inspection is very confusing and contradictory. This is due to the very diverse sign systems defining and orientating the liberation sign. Sometimes it is entirely disconnected from karma and samsara, especially in the West where these signs are not accepted.
Basically the moksha discourses in pre-modern India can be grouped into two: ascetic-meditative discourses and wisdom discourses each defining liberation and the path to liberation in opposing ways.
The aim of this contemplation chapter is to clarify the tensions within the liberation sign by using a method from sociology called ideal types.

Yoga journal for Alcohol abuse is an overwhelmingly male problem there are seven male problem users for every one female worldwide, and there is a demonstrable relationship between men with drinking problems and aggression against female partners. More than two-thirds of men who have committed or attempted homicide against a partner used alcohol or drugs, or both, during the event, whereas less than one-quarter of the victims partook in these behaviors. Severe poverty and unemployment are both associated with domestic violence. Not unexpectedly, studies show that both factors dramatically increase the level of tension within households while also increasing the likelihood of other behaviors that encourage violence, such as alcohol abuse. Further, as noted, poor and unemployed people generally lack the means to support themselves this compels them to remain in abusive relationships and households and allows patterns of violence to continue. Types and Prevalence Physical abuse involves the use of bodily force to cause loss of life, disability, damage, or harm to another individual. It includes biting, burning, choking, grabbing, scratching, shaking, shoving, slapping, and use of a weapon. Yoga journal photos, Yoga journal 2016.
