Shrimad-bhagavata-mahapurana 1.5.20 “idam hi vishvam bhagavan ivetaro yato jagat-sthana-nirodha-sambhavah……” clearly substantiates the Vedantic conception (Brahma-sutra 1.1.2 “janmady-asya yatah”) of the eternality of the subtle material nature (avyakta/asat/mula/sukshma/nitya-prakriti) by employing the term “nirodha” which literally translates as “merging by subtle form”. Since, the cosmic wounding done at the time of universal annihilation transforms the gross worldly substances into their subtlest existence and this subtlest existence is perennial in nature, it merges into paramatma till the time of next mundane creation. This state of prakriti is called equilibrium or ‘samya-avastha’.
