Athsath means 68. My understanding is that people used to believe (in Hinduism) that these 68 places of Pilgrimage would give them Mukhti. So They would suffer and travel to all these places, believing that that would give them what they wanted in life. But Guru Ji is telling us that it is not visiting the pilgrimage sites that will give us Mukhti.
