नानयोः शब्दयोरर्थभेदः पर्याययोरिव ॥ ४४ ॥

nirvāṇameva sargaśrīḥ sargaśrīreva nirvṛtiḥ |
nānayoḥ śabdayorarthabhedaḥ paryāyayoriva || 44 ||

There the work of creation is united with the rest of nirvana, and the cessation from the act of creation, is joined with uninterrupted quiescence; and no difference of alternate work and rest whatever subsists in God any time.
