Interpretation of “Rama” and “Narayana” is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1978 September 25 in Patna, India. This discourse is the seventeenth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 2.
Anandamurti starts the discourse by introducing a story in which Hanuman was asked why he uses only the name Rama and not the name Narayana, although they carry the same meaning. He then explains the various meanings of the words Narayana (the one who shelters the cognitive faculty) and Rama (the most glittering entity). They both mean the Supreme Consciousness. Anandamurti goes on explaining the following shloka: Tathápi mama sarvasva Ráma kamalalocana. (All propensities should be goaded towards the one singular entity, using only one name, only one's Ista mantra and not any other mantra, even if it carries the same meaning.)
