srimatE rAmAnujAya nama:

As Sriman Madhavakannan rightly pointed out - many AzhwArs also have
expressed their inability to think of the Lord at the final moment-
Peria Alwar, in nAlAmpathu,5- pAshurams 3 to 7, there are references
to how one should think of Lord a lot before the final moment-
"anthakAla madaivadanmunnam, mArva menbadOr koilamaithu, madhava
nennum theivathe natti, Arva menbadOr poovidavallarku ...." Also in
the end, in 4-10 referring to the "final moment" he says that he may
not be able to remember the Lord at "that moment" and instead of that
"final moment" he would like to say right now...  "angEdu nAnunnai
ninaikkammAttEn arangatharavanE palliyanE... appOdikkippOdE
shollivaithEn... Infact these are the most moving pashurams in Peri
Alwar's Tirumozhi...
