अतः स्मर्तुरभावेन स्मृतिर्वोदेति किं कथम् ।
अवश्यं हि महाकल्पे सर्वे मोक्षैकभागिनः ॥ ८ ॥

ataḥ smarturabhāvena smṛtirvodeti kiṃ katham |
avaśyaṃ hi mahākalpe sarve mokṣaikabhāginaḥ || 8 ||

It is certain that all beings are liberated, and become extinct in Brahma at the great dissolution; hence there cannot be remembrance of anything in the absence of the persons that remember the same.
