The goal of Sikhism lies in moksha, which is release and union with God, described as that of a lover with the beloved and resulting in self-transcendence, egolessness and enduring bliss, or ananda. The Sikh is immersed in God, assimilated, identified with Him. It is the fulfillment of individuality in which man, freed of all limitations, becomes co-extensive and co-operant and co-Present with God. In Sikhism, moksha means release into God's love. Man is not God, but is fulfilled in unitary, MysticalConsciousness with Him. God is the Personal Lord and Creator.
