Purushottama manifests from the Mouth; by His wish there is "havya" and "kavya" [both are types of oblations] = the Divine Form is "kavya"-- Kutastha; all these merge into Brahman - meaning samadhi.

A brahmin eats all edibles by the Mouth - meaning: nothing at all remains except Brahman; He is beyond space - meaning Brahman -- when samadhi happens, everything including Kutastha is merged; what can be asked for other than this?
