Dinacharyaam imaam divyaam Ramya Jaamaatru Yogina: |
Bhaktyaa nityamanudhyaayan praapnoti paramam padam ||

Word to word meaning

imaam -this text from “Patertyu paschime yaame”(Poorva dinacharya 14) to “Sayaanam samsmaraami tam”
Divyaam Ramyajaamatru Yogina: Dinacharyaam -detailing the daily divine auspicious routines of Sri Ramyajaamaatru Yogi swami
Nityam -everyday (day and night) -when a person recites with devotion
PraapnotiParamam padam-attains that supreme Abode of Sri Vaikuntha beyond which there is none to reach.


Finally he concludes by stating the gain of reciting this Dinacharya grantha. We already saw that upto  stanza 13 in Poorva Dinacharya is Prologue, Upodhgaatam. From stanza 14 there upto 13 in Uttara Dinacharya is only the Varavara Muni Dinacharya. We can take “Divyaam” to mean the great practices mentioned in Sastras like Paancharaatra or the the activities in the Sri Vaikuntha which are unlike those of this world five times a day(pancha kaalika anushthaana). These practices Anushthaanaas are too difficult to and tough for routine and were in full swing during Krta yuga at the hands of Paramaikaantis, and get reduced slowly by Treta Dwaapara yugas and become almost extinct in Kali yuga as stated in Bharadwaaja Parisishta. Men who have multifarious desires and worship multiple demigods in Kali can’t and won’t follow these edicts. They chase cheap things with passion and only a few shall seize the Lord and so the other religionists will try to covet them also.
