  1. In shlok 55, there is:
    "Who but one's own self can get
    rid of the bondage caused by the fetters of
    Ignorance, desire, action and the like"

    what is the meaning of "like"? is it Moh?
    as desire is already mentioned which is Moh, I think that like has different meaning.

    1. "and the like" means residual impressions basically Vasanas that are left on the mind.

      It is not Moh... but it is an accumulated desires that prompt activities/action; in other words Vasanaas.
