Prabhupāda: So your spiritual name is Abhirāma...?

Devotees: Jaya. Haribol.

Karandhara: David? (break)

Prabhupāda: There is all neck beads, everyone? You knows the rules and regulation? (break) Dhanurdharī. (aside:) Not left. Yes. Dhanurdharī. Dhanurdharī is Lord Rāmacandra's name. (pause)

Karandhara: Gilbert? (to Prabhupāda:) Gambhīra.

Prabhupāda: Greedy for Kṛṣṇa. Tatra laulyam eka laulyam. To get Kṛṣṇa, you have only one price: to become greedy for Kṛṣṇa.

Karandhara: Dhīra-sevā.

Prabhupāda: Huh?

Karandhara: Dhīra-sevā.

Prabhupāda: Dhīra. Dhīra-sevā. Dhīra-lalitā. Dhīra-sevā? No. Dhīra-sevī. She is woman. (to devotee:) You know all the rules and regulation? Yes. Your name is Dhīra-sevī. Kṛṣṇa is Dhīra. Dhīra-lalitā.

Karandhara: Sajjana-jīvana.

Prabhupāda: Sajjana-jīvana. You know rules and regulation?

Devotee: No meat-eating, no (indistinct).

Prabhupāda: Yes. Sajjana-jīvana. Sajjana-jīvana. Life is very gentle.

So thank you very much. (devotees exclaim)

Now begin chanting and yajña. Yajñaiḥ saṅkīrtanaiḥ prāyair yajanti hi su-medhasaḥ (SB 11.5.32). That is the yajña, saṅkīrtana.
