'Mukthi' means release, deliverance, liberation, freedom emancipation. Baba is here remembered as 'The giver of Mukthi'. Mukthi, in the spiritual context, means (and this is what the real aspirant must seek from Baba) the final beatitude of emancipation, the absolution of the individual from the series of recurring lives. Man manufactures his own future, by his thoughts, feelings and acts; he has to live now on the harvest of the past, while sowing and growing grain for the future. But Baba, if we surrender to Him, guides us along the path of Viveka and Vairagya; He creates in us an aversion for the wrong path; He awakens in us the knowledge of the right path. He is the inner awakener; the everpresent corrector. Mukthi is not a gift; it is an achievement, earned through our effort and His grace.
Baba refers to the kinship between the word Mukthi and the word, Muktva (which means the end, the finish). When Mukthi is won, Man's long pilgrimage ends. He has reached the goal. Means and end are inseparable; knowledge unlike action carries its fruit within itself, this knowledge that grants deliverance is permanent and final.
