Srimate RamanujAya Namaha !
Srila Prabhupad ki jai !

Dear Vaishnavas,

I have been blessed by my AcAryan HH Narayana
Yathindrar, Jeer of Ahobila Math  to join this group.

I read with interest the postings of all Vaishnavas. I
thank all the souls that participate in such a virtual
satsangam.

I give here my views on Thinking of Narayana @ the
time of death.

I agree with Naarimani Radha Rangarajan's views on why
AcaryAs and AlwArs think of the Supreme Lord Narayana
@ the time of leaving this material world.

It would not be out of place to bring to your
attention to the verse in BhagavadGita where Lord
Vasudeva says " antakAlE ca mAm Eva smaran mukthvA
kalEvaram; ya prayAthi sa madbhAvam yAthi nAsthyathra
samsayah"
meaning "People who think of Me at the time of their
last breath attain My nature (loka); Of this there is
NO doubt"

AlwArs and AcAryas always try to please the Supreme
Lord. No wonder, they carry out this instruction too,
of the Lord Hari.

Please excuse me if I have said something irrelevant.
Probably, I have missed out some earlier postings on
this topic.

A fallen soul,
Srivathsan.

Chant Hare Krsna and Be Happy.
