Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 7.1.48

śrī-yudhiṣṭhira uvāca

vidveṣo dayite putre

katham āsīn mahātmani

brūhi me bhagavan yena



śrī-yudhiṣṭhiraḥ uvācaMahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira said; vidveṣaḥ — hatred; dayite — for his own beloved; putre — son; katham — how; āsīt — there was; mahā-ātmani — the great soul, Prahlāda; brūhi — please tell; me — unto me; bhagavanO exalted sage; yena — by which; prahlādasya — of Prahlāda Mahārāja; acyutato Acyuta; ātmatā — great attachment.


Mahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira inquired: O my lord, Nārada Muni, why was there such enmity between Hiraṇyakaśipu and his beloved son Prahlāda Mahārāja? How did Prahlāda Mahārāja become such a great devotee of Lord Kṛṣṇa? Kindly explain this to me.


All the devotees of Lord Kṛṣṇa are called acyutātmā because they follow in the footsteps of Prahlāda Mahārāja. Acyuta refers to the infallible Lord Viṣṇu, whose heart is always infallible. Because the devotees are attached to the infallible, they are called acyutātmā.

Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Seventh Canto, First Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled "The Supreme Lord Is Equal to Everyone."
