The 'Story of Līlā', the longest tale of all those included in the Yogavāsiṣṭha or Mokṣopāya, deals with the various states of consciousness and levels of existence. It provides a paradigm for the understanding of the conventional world, namely the world of ordinary experience. This, despite its apparent consistency, does not imply any degree of reality. it is an imaginary world, which is to be found within other imaginary worlds, and in its turn, it contains other worlds. In the final analysis the story is being told first and foremost so that the listener should abandon the notion of 'the world'.
