Re:Question on CharamaSlokam

Sri Madhavakkannan explained it well. Like he said, it is a gentle
reminder for us not to worry anymore.
Once we have submitted all our burdens to His feet, we should 'never'
even think about worrying. But, being mere mortals, we don't even come
close to that. We often worry about our problems, analyze the situation,
feel great about solving problems... We do all this with an inherent
ahankAram, as if 'we' are controlling things. This contradicts the basic
premise.
Hence a gentle reminder every day, "Sarva dharmAn ... sucha: enRu
aruLiya SrI gIthAchAryan thiruvadigaLE thanjam"
would be better.

Dear Sri Suresh,

The charama slokam is nothing but a soothing, solace for us, deeply
immersed in
scorching,  samsaaric oceans. To remove the taapam, that is the
assuaging
assurance from the Lord.. "Not to worry" anymore. The mere recitation of
that
sloka is a gentle reminder to oursleves everyday (and also to Sriya:
Pathi
Sriman Narayanan for saving us, who have surrendered to Him alone ).

Also, we can enjoy recitation of this charama slokam (as Sri Vijay
Triplicane
pointed about two years agom in the list for the same query), with a
suffix..

as "Sarva dharmaan..... sucha.. enRu sonna GeethachAryan ThiruvadigaLE
SaraNam".

Narayana Narayana
