I'm happy that Subbuji has with lot of sources shown a flaw in considering
the last thought before death for an aparokSha jnAnI as important during my
reply to Raghavji. That was only for Raghavji's setting the context that a
glimpse of jnAna may not give videhamukti. Yes, his nididhyAsana is not
nididhyAsana, but nirguNa dhyAna, which will bring the importance of the
last thought at death back into the picture!
