TEXT 135
nirodho 'syānu śayanam
ātmanaḥ saha śaktibhiḥ
muktir hitvānyathā-rūpaṁ
svarūpeṇa vyavasthitiḥ
nirodhaḥ—winding up; asya—of this; anu—after; śayanam—lying down; ātmanaḥ—of the Supreme Lord; saha—with; śaktibhiḥ—the energies (marginal and external); muktiḥ—liberation; hitvā—giving up; anyathā—other; rūpam—form; svarūpeṇa—with one's own eternal form; vyavasthitiḥ—staying.
" 'The living entities and other potencies merge in the Mahā-Viṣṇu as the Lord lies down and winds up [destroys] the cosmic manifestation. Liberation means being situated in one's eternal original form, which he attains after giving up the changeable gross and subtle bodies.'
This is a quotation from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (2.10.6).
