What exactly does Hinduism state about moksha? Is Gita the only source to know about this concept?

Moksha is the liberation from samsara, the cycle of death and rebirth or reincarnation and all of the suffering and limitation of worldly existence. Other than the Gita, the Advaita Vedanta also leads one to attain Moksha.

THERE are many view about MOKSHA in many religion , but in HINDUISM it is totally different one can get moksha only when his karma is good and during his/her last breath he/she remember god except remembering his/her kins and lovers then he/she will enter in god VISHNU s body and he will get mokaha there in. AND it is not an easy proscess as the bosy has no control on mind and without concerntrated mind one can not achive god. for that one has to control the mind right much much before and keep doing the good work as this will bring closer to god. Gita is only the source about the concept.

If one has to understand Moksha or Mukthi in Hinduism, one needs to have a belief in the Poorva Janma Karma Phalans. Or the Karmas of a Jiva. If something happens to somebody, we flippantly say it is his destiny or fate that such a thing has happened to him. But what we call destiny or fate, is the result of our past actions, in this birth and the previous births. The actions of today becomes the destiny of tomorrow. Every action has its own reaction. Certain actions give their reactions immediately, while others provide their reaction after an interval. And the interval could be any length of time. At each moment of our lives we are not only living the fruits of past actions, but also creating those of tomorrow. From the seed the tree comes. The seed is the cause, and the tree the effect. The past causes the present and the present causes the future. Even though this law is indeed an omnipotent power that rules, governs over, controls and directs all life everywhere at all times, man, can with the right understanding guide destiny. All our activities are called Karma which are of three types. Karma of the past - Sanchita, Karma of the present, Prarabdha, and Karma of the future Agami. The moment one realises himself, or attains Self realization, the Sanchita and Agami Karmas are destroyed. But the Prarabdha Karma, which has already started yielding fruit has to continue existing till it exhausts the momentum with which it was born. To this end, our body is the arrow which has already started from the mother s womb, and has been aimed at the tomb. From the womb to the tomb is its journey. In that flight, having started its career, nobody can stop it. Have you ever tried to stop a non stop flight from point A to point B in Mid Air over the Atlantic? Adapted from Swami Chinmayananda s lectures.

Moksha is not where you reach after death. Mukthi-bhava is sought after and obtained in this birth itself, by everyone, if they acquire the correct perspective and vision of our elders / saints, with help from appropriate teachers Gurus
