Nirvyāpāra (निर्व्यापार) refers to “motionless (division)” (of the Sakala contemplation), according to verse  13.7cd-8 of the Mālinīvijayottaratantra.—Accordingly, “If one attains identification [with the water element, then], within six months steadiness is achieved. Within three years one attains gnostic vision of the water-realm. In the motionless division (nirvyāpāra-prabheda) [of the Sakala contemplation] also, one is conjoined to the reality level of water [and becomes] in all respects similar to water”.
