But how can moksha be a "thing" that is desired and acquired? An object
has qualities and if we admit Brahman to have qualities we discount the
concept of Nirguna Brahman altogether. I think that is why our Acharyas
stressed the idea of knowledge through negation, "it is not this, not
this" as the ultimate truth.
