Nairantarya (नैरन्तर्य) refers to the “contiguous” (state of atoms), according to the Īśvarapratyabhijñāvivṛtivimarśinī 2.140.—Accordingly, “[...] Anticipating this [objection, Utpaladeva] says ‘To explain …’ Here is the implicit meaning [of this passage]: if the pot is [nothing but] atoms with intervals (antara) [separating them from each other], then [the pot] must be imperceptible. [...] But if [the atoms] are contiguous (nairantarya), they [must] be in contact with one another”.
