Story of Ajamila : Episode from Bhagavatham

SB 6.1: The History of the Life of Ajamila Srimad-Bhagavata

This link opens to a long elucidation of a Chapter in Bhagavatham where Ajamila story comes. I've read the introduction and glanced through the rest. Will read.
Though I had become lazy about nama japa or everyday recital of a few sanskrit stanzas, now I understand the rationale behind Sandhya Naama and Keerthanaas popularized among children and aged groups. 
We will continue this discussion in the coming days.
A Malayalam four-liner about "Narayana" may be of interest:
"നാരായണായെന്നു സദാ ജപിച്ചാൽ
പാപം കെടും പശി കെടും വൃസനങ്ങൾ തീരും
നാവിന്നുണർച്ച വരുമെപ്പൊഴും
അന്തൃകാലേ ഗോവിന്ദപാദകമലങ്ങൾ തെളിഞ്ഞു കാണാം"
Naaraayanaayennu Sadaa Japicchaal
Paapam Kedum Pasi Kedum
Vyasanangal Theerum
Naavinnunarcha Varumeppozhu-
Thelinju Kaanaam"
(If one recites 'Naraayana' always,
One will be freed from sins,
One won't remain hungry,
Will be free from sorrows.
One will be able to express what's in mind, and
When the end comes,
One will see clearly,
The Lotus Feet of Govinda!")
