Death Chant Of Hinduism Karna Mantra

This post is meant for people who believe in God , not for those who believe in Love, though not have seen it,yet deny God.

We in our normal lives, imagine we have no time to think of God,( yet we do have time for TV and Politics); it is much more difficult to think of God when we lie dying when your senses are leaving you and you are in pain.

Hindu Sastras declare that one becomes what one thinks of at the time of Death.

So the Sastras enjoin one to name their children in the name of God.

By calling out to them,though you do not mean it,you call out God and He remembers, for Fire will singe you whether you are aware of it or not.

What name is to call out as Death stalks.

The One who guides you at and after Death is Lord Vishnu, the protector.

He is the Ultimate Ruler of Death in His Name Govinda.

Govinda is the name which is very dear to Lord Krishna, an Avatar of Vishnu.

The name is to be called out.

When and if you can not call this Name. those around you are required to recite the Vishnu Sahasranama or Om NamaSivaya.

Yet there is an important ceremony to be performed by the eldest son at the time of Death of his parents.

He is to keep the head of the parent at the time of dying on his left thigh and chant this mantra.

mam ekam saranam vraja
aham tvam sarva-papebhyo

Here Lord Krishna uses the rarely used form of address to speak to Arjuna.

That is ‘Ma Sucha’

This is a term of endearment by a Father to his son.

Krishna does not use this term anywhere to address Arjuna , in the Mahabharata, not did he use this term to anybody in the Puranas.
