276. Let it be known that (knowledge of the scriptures such as) Acharanga is right knowledge. (Faith in the categories of) jiva etc., is right faith. (Protection of) the six kinds of organisms is right conduct. These, it is said, constitute vyavahara (mokshamarga) - the path of salvation form the practical point of view).

277. Whereas the Self is my right knowledge, the Self is my right faith, the Self again is my right conduct. The Self is renunciation, the Self is the stoppage of karmas of karmas yogic meditation. (These constitute the nischaya moksha marga, or Path of Salvation form the points of view). Emotional states such as attachment are the cause of bondage. They are alien to the nature of pure Self. Then how do they occur in the consciousness of the Self? Do they result from direct manifestation of the Self or are they caused by alien influences? This question is answered in the succeeding gathas.
