Remembering the Lord at the time of death in Spiritual Discussions Posted August 7, 2009 · Report reply This is interesting indeed.I am still not understanding WHAT is painful about it? First you said that there is mental pain, then you said that the mind goes blank..I am not at all trying to argue, simply to understand what EXACTLY IS happening at the moment of death and WHY is it SO difficult to remember God in that moment? I know for myself, someone who has spent a great deal of life in physical pain, that remembering God when I am in pain can sometimes be difficult...however, at some points, it is quite easy because the pain can be SO great, that you cry out for help to God. So why is it so difficult? If the mind is going blank, I assume that would be a good thing, since that is what we try to do everyday when we meditate..is make our minds blank! Is it the attachments and the UNFUFILLED DESIRES that make it painful at the moment of death? I know that leaving your body through astral projection is not painful, as someone said earlier. Therefore, WHY IS IT HARD TO REMEMBER GOD?? Would love to know why if anyone knows!! Remebering god means going to him.So until and unless gods grace comes you wont remember him. thiest sir has said it that it is not a technical process but personal . Maharaj says that whatever sadhana etc you do you can only conquer beyond the three tatvas but you go further with gods grace. .
