Thanks, but that is in an Indian context, where hara (from a root meaning to steal) is the name of the destroyer and hari (from a root possibly meaning yellow/green) is the name of the protector. (kRSNa, for dark coloured, is a pastoral god identified with hari) But, I was interested hari in the Persian context.

Incidentally, the vocative term hare kRSNa is the common form, used in invoking the protector, though harikRSNa has been used historically as a name.
