Meaning : Just as the rivers flowing towards the sea, merge into the sea, they get assimilated in it and become extinct along with name and form and they are known as ‘Samudra’ (ocean), similarly the 16 qualities of the omni-visionary, whose abode is Purush ( the Supreme Being) only, attain Him and merge in Him. Their name-forms get destroyed and they are called Purush. That is the learned achieves unison with all the qualities and becomes immortal. This Shloka is famous in this connection.
