Ofcourse He will NOT ignore the self surrenderer!!! It is by His
grace ALONE that He will show that person a sadAcharyan so he/she can
formally go thru what else is needed to be done for total surrender,
of which getting "SamAshrayanam" and "ThirumanthrArtha upadesham" are
considered the most improtant ones, for the surrender to take effect...
