Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 24.135
ātmanaḥ saha śaktibhiḥ
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 into Mahā-Viṣṇu as the Lord lies down and winds up [destroys] the cosmic manifestation. Liberation means being situated in one's eternal, original form after giving up the changeable gross and subtle bodies.'
This is a quotation from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (2.10.6).
