- * Vāyu-purāṇa 1. 161; 100. 132.
Ātyantika (आत्यन्तिक) refers to one of the four kinds of destruction, according to the 10th century Saurapurāṇa: one of the various Upapurāṇas depicting Śaivism.—Accordingly, chapter thirty-two contains accounts of Manvantaras while the chapter thirty-three contains descriptions of four kinds of destruction viz. Nitya, Naimittika, Prākṛta and Ātyantika.
Ātyantika refers to “liberation of the individual soul”.—Ātyantika-Pralaya is the result of the knowledge of God, that is to say when Yogins lose themselves in paramātman, then occurs the Ātyantika-pralaya. Thus liberation of the individual soul as a result of right knowledge and his absorption in The Supreme Soul is called Ātyantika-pralaya. Whatever is perceived as a cause or an effect is an illusion. Everything that has a beginning and an end is unreal. Though we see the phenomenal world , it is unreal. The person who makes distinction between the individual soul and the supreme soul is ignorant and his self is not illuminated by the light of right knowledge. But in reality the individual soul is identical with the supreme soul and owing to avidvā a person can not comprehend this truth. But when he realises this eternal truth his avidyā vanishes and he gets liberation. The Bhāgavatapurāṇa (12.4.34) states that by rending with the weapon of knowledge the fetters of the self caused by māyā, a man realises God and he achieves ātyantika-laya. The Saurapurāṇa states that this right knowledge is achieved by devotion to Lord Śiva.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
