Leaving my body thinking of KRSNA: What is absolutely the best way possible???

This was Prabhupada's favourite verse from Kulasekhara Alvar:



kṛṣṇa tvadīya-pada-pańkaja-pañjarāntam

adyaiva me viśatu mānasa-rāja-haḿsaḥ

prāṇa-prayāṇa-samaye kapha-vāta-pittaiḥ

kaṇṭhāvarodhana-vidhau smaraṇaḿ kutas te


O Krsna! Please allow my mind to immediately yield to Your lotus flowerlike feet, just as the flamingo enters into the labyrinth of the lotus flowers' stems. When at the moment of my last breath my throat becomes constricted by the action of the bodily humors air, bile, and phlegm, how will I be able to remember You?

So even if you are choking, no matter, just remember Krishna. Smaranam is also a way to the Lord. The Lord is not cruel that He will forget you in your time of need.

It is very difficult to remember Krishn at the time of death, because as I heard that death is a horrible experience, as the pain one feels when the soul is snatched out of the body is untolerable. But those who love and remember Krishn whole-heartedly Krishn make that trasition very easy.


Some people think that by following a group (sampraday) and chanting all day is enough and they are devotees. But that is not enough. All the promises Krishn makes in Bhagwat Gita and the Shreemad Bhagwatam is for totally surrendered souls (Saints). They are the bhakta who are protected by Krishn.

Become a devotee in life, then Krsna will think of you at the time of death.


Hare Krsna, ys, mahaksadasa
