From Rigpa Wiki
Liberation (Skt. mokṣa, Wyl. thar pa, Tib. ཐར་པ་) usually means freedom from samsara, either by attaining the state of an arhat or the state of perfect enlightenment of a buddha. It can also occasionally have the meaning of performing the action of liberation, a practice to liberate the consciousness of a malignant being into a buddha field.
