Meditation on Sriman NArAyanan leads to Sri Vaikuntam
SrI KulaSEkhara describes the status of the minority who meditate on SrIman-nArAyaNa. He says that yOgi-s who meditate on SrIman-nArAyaNa with deep devotion attain the eternal place of vishNu, viz., SrI vaikuNTham.
The AzhvAr points out that those recite the nArAyaNa-gAyatrI,:
“nArAyaNAya vidmahE vAsudEvAya dhImahi |
tannO vishNu: pracOdayAt || “
Though the vishNu-gAyatrI-mantra-japam which means, “May we know nArAyaNAya! For that, may we meditate on vAsudEva! May vishNu impel us towards that knowledge”, mahA-yOgi-s have the good fortune of seeing Him in their heart lotuses. There they find Him seated with SrI-dEvI, in abhaya-mudra. Through such a fruitful meditation they reach the abode (parama-padam) of SrIman-nArAyaNa, according to SrI kulaSEkhara.
