jnatvadvayo ’tha viramed
iti—thus; aksarataya—because of being spiritual; atmanam—oneself (the individual soul); cit-matram—completely spiritual; avasesitam—the remaining balance (after the material elements are merged, one after another, into the original Supersoul); jnatva—understanding; advayah—without differentiation, or of the same quality as the Paramatma; atha—thus; viramet—one should cease from material existence; dagdha-yonih—whose source (the wood) has burnt up; iva—like; analah—flames.
When all the material designations have thus merged into their respective material elements, the living beings, who are all ultimately completely spiritual, being one in quality with the Supreme Being, should cease from material existence, as flames cease when the wood in which they are burning is consumed. When the material body is returned to its various material elements, only the spiritual being remains. This spiritual being is Brahman and is equal in quality with Parabrahman.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Seventh Canto, Twelfth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “The Perfect Society: Four Spiritual Classes.”
