Conversations and Morning Walks

1977 Conversations and Morning Walks

Abhirāma means always chanting Rāma.
Room Conversation About 10th Canto -- October 16, 1977, Vrndavana:

Prabhupāda: Yes. (break) We can work little. (break) ...here and sit down. (break)...is the spelling of your name, Avirāma or Abhirāma?

Abhirāma: When you initiated me, Śrīla Prabhupāda, you, at least in the letter, it was spelled Avhi, Avhi. But generally you call me Abhi.

Prabhupāda: Avirāma means without tiresomeness. And abhirāma means always chanting Rāma.

Abhirāma: Śrīla Prabhupāda, in the initiation letter you said that it means one who is affectionate to Rāma.

Prabhupāda: Hm. Always chanting.

Abhirāma: I should be always chanting.

Prabhupāda: Yes. It is a nasty world. The only safety is to take shelter of Rāma. Harer nāma harer nāma... (CC Adi 17.21). Kīrtanīyaḥ sadā hariḥ (CC Adi 17.31). When there are so many material inconveniences... Tṛṇād api sunīcena taror api sahiṣṇunā. Very nasty world.

Yaśodānandana: Amāninā mānadena kīrtanīyaḥ sadā hariḥ (CC Adi 17.31).

Abhirāma: That Abhirāma, that is the associate of Mahāprabhu? That is different.

Prabhupāda: Eh?

Abhirāma: There is one associate of Mahāprabhu, Abhirāma.

Prabhupāda: Both may be, Abhirāma or Avirāma. Both carries meaning. Abhirāma is better.
