Mantram - 11. [ What men with knowledge ( Upasana ) attain ].
Discussion-3. "Krama - mukti" ........
Those, who, not only perform the Yajna-s and Yaga-s, but along with these, also meditate upon the great Truth of our philosophy ( i.e, those who perform 'Karma' and Upasana), at death leave the body and take the northern route ( Utharayanam ) and, through the corridors of the "Sun," go beyond and enter the Brahma lokam, the Supreme-most world of the Creator.
There, these lucky souls not only live of the higher joy, but also attend to the great discources given out to them by Brahmaji, the first Guru of "Brahma-Vidya.
It is a belief that they, along with the creator, at the end of the "Yugam," during the "Pralayam," get merged with the Supreme Absolute Awareness.
This method of liberation is technically called "Krama Mukti" ( or gradual liberation).
