अथ स्थितिप्रकरणादनन्तरमिदं श्रृणु ।
उपशमप्रकरणं ज्ञातं निर्वाणकारि यत् ॥ १ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
atha sthitiprakaraṇādanantaramidaṃ śrṛṇu |
upaśamaprakaraṇaṃ jñātaṃ nirvāṇakāri yat || 1 ||

Vasishtha said:—Hear me, Rama, now propose to you the subject of quietude or rest, which follows that of Existence and sustentation of the universe; and the knowledge of which will lead you to nirvana or final extinction.
