I think I like the term "liberation" (moksha) better than "enlightenment", because the latter implies some sort of superiority.
Also, "enlightened" does not carry much intuitive meaning for me, whereas I can certainly understand the desire to be liberated.

Or maybe "awakened" is better? Heck, I don't know. It's like a caterpillar trying to find a word which makes it clear what it's like to be a butterfly.
