Singing is mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita

What scriptures say that chanting the Name of the Lord during death can achieve “moksha”?

The story of Ajamila in Bhagawata Purana is an example of the power to chant the name of the Lord in the last moments of life, albeit accidentally. Although the reference does not refer directly to moksha, the Vishnudutas prevent the immediate mortality of Ajamila because he sang the name of the Lord at the last moment.

The inner meaning, of course, is that one must train the spirit throughout life to be able to chant the name of the Lord at the time of death. Sri Ramakrishna mentions a story to illustrate this point about training the mind to chant the name of the Lord. A businessman named all of his four sons after the names of Lord Narayana in the hope that, like Ajamila, he would call out one of these names in his last moments and thereby achieve deliverance. At the last moment he called out the names of all four sons. When they reached his bed he exclaimed: "You guys!If you all come over here to my bed, who will take care of the business? '. And he breathed his last breath !. He ended up thinking of his money instead of singing the name of the Lord.

Nice answer, but not as precise as I would have liked ..... You are right to chant sacred names every day and every moment throughout life. That part is already discussed in the link given in my question Read ... It is highly unlikely that a person will chant God's name during death (even if they are aware of its highest benefits) because they are unable is to predict the exact time of their death, and 2 mostly not be conscious or mentally alert to sing ...

--- So those who sing at death are very few and very rare beings that many Punya take with them from present and past life.

Vortex mind

Yes, it is important to be mentally vigilant. Yes, Punya does matter. But it doesn't have to be Punya. In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna mentions that the headstrong nature of the mind can be diverted from Abhyasa and Vairagya (constant practice and dispassion). Mahatma Gandhi sang Ramas after he was shot by the assassin. It is true that the nature of the final moments, whether consciously or unconsciously, is not in our hands to predict them. But when we are aware that we are aware of chanting the name of the Lord by leaving other thoughts aside, we need lifelong practice, we need to try. Such an inclination can itself be a result of Punya.
