SLOKA-26: STANA VISESHADHIKARAM: THE 19TH CHAPTER OF SRTS. THE FITTEST PLACE TO RESIDE IS WHERE THE BHAGAVATHAS LIVE
MEANING : The places of residence of ParamaikAnthis is equivalent in sacredness to the combination of the sacredness of dhivya dEsams in HimAlayan mountain, the banks of Ganges river, CauvEri banks, SvEtha dhveepam and AyOddhi. Such places are the fittest places of residence for a Prapannan. When the Prapannan is not fortunate to live in a Bhagavath KshEthram populated by ParamaikAnthis, then any place where ParamaikAnthi BhAgavathAs reside is fit for the residence of a Prapannan. The key passage of this Paasuram is: “Vaann nAdu uhanthavar vaiyatthu iruppidam nall nilam”. (Those places populated by the BhAgavathAs of the Lord should be the preferred residences for the PrapannAs during the post-prapatthi period).
SLOKA-27: NIRYANADHIKARAM: THE 20TH CHAPTER OF SRTS. ALL TIMES & PLACES ARE FIT FOR PRAPANNAN LEAVING HIS BODY
MEANING: There is no special prerequisite for the Prapanna Jeevan to exit from the body via Brahma nAdi. There is no special requirement that this exit happens at a special KshEthram or at a particular time or a particular season. Whatever the time or place or season, all of them are equally auspicious for the exit of the Jeevan by the special naadi. In the ChEthanam’s heart, 101 naadis (nerve pathways) originate. There is one special naadi in the middle of the 100 naadis. It is called Brahma naadi or Moordhanya naadi or Sushumnai. The jeevans that travel by any one of the 100 naadis –other than the Brahma naadi- reach lOkAs other than SrI Vaikuntam. Prapanna Jeevan alone is assisted by the Lord to travel by Brahma naadi and archirAdhi mArgam (the path of light) and reach SrI Vaikuntam.
The key passage of this Paasuram is: “adiyavarkku angu vilakku ilathu. athu nalnilamAm, athu naldEsamAm, athu nalpahalAm, athu nalnimittham yennalum aamm” (For PrapannAs, the time and place of departure is not restricted. Any place from which they leave their bodies would be an equally auspicious place. The time at which they leave their bodies would be the auspicious time. The nimittham associated with the exit of their jeevans would be an auspicious nimittham. There is no requirement that the Prapanna Jeevan has to have the thoughts of the Lord during the last moments (anthima smruthi). This requirement is only for those Jeevans, which practiced Bhakthi yOgam as the upAyam for MOksham. There is no requirement that Prapanna Jeevan has to exit from the body during Sukla paksham or UttharAyaNam. Such is the power of Prapatthi!
