THE SATRAS - II

At the time of his death the sinful Ajamila called his youngest son Narayana to him and because he happened to utter the name of Narayana (which is also the name of God) at the time of death, the soul of the Brahman was taken to the abode of Vishnu and not to the city of Yama.

Thus it clearly shows that even an unconscious recital of the name of God brings salvation to hard sinners just as abdominal disease is cured by even an unconscious swallowing of a powerful medicine (Yena mahausadhi najani bhunjile taro Garbha roga hare). The merit of devotion is also propounded through the well-known story of Prahlada in the poem Prahlada-Carita.

The same doctrine is made explicit in Gajendro - pakhyana. It describes a curious battle scene between Graha (crocodile) and Gajendra (elephant). Gajendra was over- powered by Graha and. he was counting the hour of death. Suddenly, it flashed to his mind that devotion to Hari Might save him-from this predicament.
