bodha.h - knowledge

saakshaan - in person (form)
moksha - knowledge of Brahman
ek - one
saadhanam.h - is the instrument
paakasya - of cooking

Translation :

(Just like) without the knowledge of lighting a fire, cooking is not
possible, (similarly) the knowledge of moksha is really attained with the
personal experiencing of Brahman.

Note : Please point out any mistakes since this is my own attempt at making
sense of the words.
