saints who prayed that they may remember His adorable form at the time of death as in verse  ̳Adharahita charu vamsanalah..‘ of Gopala Vimsati. There were others who wanted their remembrance of the Lord be counted as remembrance at the time of departing for all that they know they may be not in position to pray at that time due to illness and ailments- as a verse says in Mukundamala. In our beloved Masters method there is no such insistence and a person is brought to the condition of Jeevan mukta provided the person follows the path as commended.
In the verse  ̳Vidya vinaya sampanne...‘ (Chap V, verse 18) of the Bhagavad Gita, the Lord said that the wise men have "equal vision." This is a very important concept or teaching in the Bhagavad Gita and needs clear understanding. Our Master used to point out Samadarsi (man of equal vision) is different from Samavarthi (man who behaves alike to all). We are asked to see the same self in all; but that should not lead us to the absurd position of trying to feed the goat with meat and the tiger with grass.
