  By far the easiest way is to create a VMD saved state that goes
with the particular molecule you're loading. This also allows you to
save not only the viewing orientation, but also the graphical representations
and other view-related parameters you've setup. The saved state script itself
will reload the molecule and restore these settings when you load it.
