|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 88: Lord Śiva Saved from Vṛkāsura|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.88.10
tad brahma paramaḿ sūkṣmaḿ
cin-mātraḿ sad anantakam
tat — that; brahma — impersonal Brahman; paramam — supreme; sūkṣmam — subtle; cit — spirit; mātram — pure; sat — eternal existence; anantakam — without end; vijñāya — understanding with thorough realization; ātmatayā — as one's true Self; dhīraḥ — sober; saḿsārāt — from material life; parimucyate — one becomes freed.
A person who has thus become sober fully realizes the Absolute as the highest truth, the most subtle and perfect manifestation of spirit, the transcendental existence without end. In this way realizing that the Supreme Truth is the foundation of his own existence, he is freed from the cycle of material life.
