Narayana Smriti… Someone may say, ‘what’s the problem? I’ll just enjoy life and at the end of life I’ll just remember Narayana…very simple! Why do all this chanting and austerities when I can just remember Narayana at the end?’
Of course the thing is that normally people…end…will think whatever they’re attached to… to think of the things they are most attached to! So if we are chanting the Lord’s name and engaging in His service, then we maintain an attachment for the Lord throughout our life.
It’s like a fiber that’s holding everything together!…So through all our different activities the Lord is the common denominator! The common central pivot point in all our different activities.
So whether one is a…engaged…whatever process one is engaging in, this remembrance of Narayana, taking shelter of Krishna is a very important…is the most important aspect.
So a person gets habituated to remembering Krishna, so at the end of life it’s very easy also to remember Krishna.
