How far is Liberation?

How far is Liberation?

Peria dasar, a true devotee, posed a question in the house of learned pandits, " How far is Vaikunda (Heavenly abode of Lord) ?" The learned pandits tried their hands in various sastras and tried to calculate the distance. Each one gave different answers. Then Peria dasar said "This is a simple answer! Its just at a calling distance !" When others enquired how? He replied that "Did not Gajendra (the elephant king) and Ajamila (a sinner) attained salvation just by chanting the Name!" Our scriptures also say that one attains liberation if he chants the Name at last breath. From this one understand that Salvation is at a calling distance when we Chant the Name of the Lord. A reserved seat awaits in the Heavenly abode of the Lord for all those who Chant the Name NOW.
