Dear Vaishnavas: With regard to Jaganath's posting on Gaudiya
Vaishnavism, I have few querries:

> of attaining Narayana to Narayana. In our sampradayam there is a
> prayer specifying the time at which one attains moksha.

What is that prayer?

Not being familiar with Sanskrit, I cannot tell you since this is
probably not written down anywhere.  But what is done for us is
Dripta Prapatti where the period specified is the end of this life.

>What is different is methods of worship and chanting of mantras.

Could you please talk more about these? Thanks

These differences are endless.  For example Our Achamanam is Achyuta,
Ananta and Govinda with Pranava prefix and namah suffix.  For
Chaitanya sampradaya it is Kesava, Madhava, Govinda.

We worship Lakshmi Narayana, Lakshmi Nrsimha etc.  They worship Radha
Madan Mohan, Radha Govinda, Radha Gopinatha etc.

We chant the 4,000 during aradhana, they have their own Bengali and
Sanskrit Bhajans.

Both sampradayas follow Pancharatra agamas for aradhana.
