Remembering our Lord during final moments..

According to our sri sampradAya as taught and spread by Bhagawat 
Ramanuja, it is not necessary on the part of a departing soul to 
remember Him (Antim Smaranam Not necessary).

This is the view of almost all the Jeeyars adiyEn has had the bhagyam
of listening to.

:- Yet, we find almost all our Acharyas who followed Sri Ramanuja

I am sure our Acharya's (of Sri Sampradaya) said something & their 
message got misread by some here & there.
I would request you to seek clatification with the same Acharya whom
you think has said this.

Some people in Chicago discussions (we have had some wonderful 
discussions here) hold the opinion that per Thenkalai Sampradaya
Antim Smaranam is NOT required, but as per Vadakalai Sampradaya
it is required. adiyEn differs in this view point. (If we follow 
Bhagawat Ramanuja, we do NOT need to worry Antim Smaranam)

This is just adiyEn's opinion.
