yāńhāra hṛdaye ei bhāvāńkura haya
tāńhāte eteka cihna sarva-śāstre kaya

If one actually has the seed of transcendental emotion in his heart, the symptoms will be visible in his activities. That is the verdict of all revealed scriptures. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

kṣāntir avyartha-kālatvaḿ
viraktir māna-śūnyatā
āśā-bandhaḥ samutkaṇṭhā
nāma-gāne sadā ruciḥ
āsaktis tad-guṇākhyāne
prītis tad-vasati-sthale
ity-ādayo 'nubhāvāḥ syur
jāta-bhāvāńkure jane

When the seed of ecstatic emotion for Kṛṣṇa fructifies, the following nine symptoms manifest in one's behaviour: forgiveness, concern that time should not be wasted, detachment, absence of false prestige, hope, eagerness, a taste for chanting the holy name of the Lord, attachment to descriptions of the transcendental qualities of the Lord, and affection for those places where the Lord resides — that is, a temple or a holy place like Vṛndāvana. These are all called anubhāva, subordinate signs of ecstatic emotion. They are visible in a person in whose heart the seed of love of God has begun to fructify. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

ei nava prīty-ańkura yāńra citte haya
prākṛta-kṣobhe tāńra kṣobha nāhi haya

If love for Kṛṣṇa in a seedling state has fructified in one's heart, one is not agitated by material things.
(Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

vāgbhiḥ stuvanto manasā smarantas
tanvā namanto 'py aniśaḿ na tṛptāḥ
bhaktāḥ śravan-netra-jalāḥ samagram
āyur harer eva samarpayanti

With their words, they offer prayers to the Lord. With their minds, they always remember the Lord. With their bodies, they offer obeisances to the Lord. Despite all these activities, they are still not satisfied. This is the nature of pure devotees. Shedding tears from their eyes, they dedicate their whole lives to the Lord's service. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

bhukti, siddhi, indriyārtha tāre nāhi bhāya

In the material field, people are interested in material enjoyment, mystic power and sense gratification. But these things do not appeal to the devotee at all. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

'sarvottama' āpanāke 'hīna' kari māne

Although a pure devotee's standard is above all, he still considers himself to be in the lowest stage of life.
(Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

'kṛṣṇa kṛpā karibena' — dṛḍha kari' jāne

A fully surrendered devotee always hopes that Lord Kṛṣṇa will be kind to him. This hope is very firm in him.
(Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

nāma-gāne sadā ruci, laya kṛṣṇa-nāma

Due to having great relish for the holy name, one is inclined to chant the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra constantly.
(Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

dhanyasyāyaḿ nava-premā
yasyonmīlati cetasi
antar-vāṇibhir apy asya
mudrā suṣṭhu su-durgamā

Even a most learned scholar cannot understand the activities and symptoms of an exalted personality in whose heart love of Godhead has awakened. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

evaḿ-vrataḥ sva-priya-nāma-kīrtyā
jātānurāgo druta-citta uccaiḥ
hasaty atho roditi rauti gāyaty
unmāda-van nṛtyati loka-bāhyaḥ

When a person is actually advanced and takes pleasure in chanting the holy name of the Lord, who is very dear to him, he is agitated and loudly chants the holy name. He also laughs, cries, becomes agitated and chants just like a madman, not caring for outsiders.
(Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam).

premā krame bāḍi' haya — sneha, māna, praṇaya
rāga, anurāga, bhāva, mahābhāva haya

Love of Godhead increases and is manifested as affection, counterlove, love, attachment, sub attachment, ecstasy and sublime ecstasy.
(Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

bīja, ikṣu, rasa, guḍa tabe khaṇḍa-sāra
śarkarā, sitā-michari, śuddha-michari āra

This development is compared to sugarcane seeds, sugarcane plants, sugarcane juice, molasses, crude sugar, refined sugar, sugar candy and rock candy.(Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

ihā yaiche krame nirmala, krame bāḍe svāda
rati-premādira taiche bāḍaye āsvāda

One should understand that just as the taste of sugar increases as it is gradually purified, so when love of Godhead increases from rati, which is compared to the beginning seed, its taste increases. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

adhikāri-bhede rati — pañca parakāra
śānta, dāsya, sakhya, vātsalya, madhura āra

According to the candidate possessing these transcendental qualities (sneha, māna and so on), there are five transcendental mellows — neutrality, servitorship, friendship, parental love and conjugal love. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

ei pañca sthāyī bhāva haya pañca 'rasa'
ye-rase bhakta 'sukhī', kṛṣṇa haya 'vaśa'

These five transcendental mellows exist permanently. The devotee may be attracted to one of these mellows, and thus he becomes happy. Kṛṣṇa also becomes inclined toward such a devotee and comes under his control. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

premādika sthāyi-bhāva sāmagrī-milane
kṛṣṇa-bhakti rasa-rūpe pāya pariṇāme

When the permanent ecstasies (neutrality, servitorship and so on) are mixed with other ingredients, devotional service in love of Godhead is transformed and becomes composed of transcendental mellows. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

vibhāva, anubhāva, sāttvika, vyabhicārī
sthāyi-bhāva 'rasa' haya ei cāri mili'

Permanent ecstasy becomes a more and more tasteful transcendental mellow through the mixture of special ecstasy, subordinate ecstasy, natural ecstasy and transitory ecstasy. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

dadhi yena khaṇḍa-marica-karpūra-milane
'rasālākhya' rasa haya apūrvāsvādane

Yogurt mixed with sugar candy, black pepper and camphor is very palatable and tasty. Similarly, when permanent ecstasy mixes with other ecstatic symptoms, it becomes unprecedentedly tasty. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

dvividha 'vibhāva', — ālambana, uddīpana
vaḿśī-svarādi — 'uddīpana', kṛṣṇādi — 'ālambana'

There are two kinds of particular ecstasies (vibhāva). One is called the support, and the other is called the awakening. The vibration of Kṛṣṇa's flute is an example of the awakening, and Lord Kṛṣṇa Himself is an example of the support. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

'anubhāva' — smita, nṛtya, gītādi udbhāsvara
stambhādi — 'sāttvika' anubhāvera bhitara

The subordinate ecstasies are smiling, dancing and singing, as well as different manifestations in the body. The natural ecstasies, such as being stunned, are considered among the subordinate ecstasies (anubhāva). (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

nirveda-harṣādi — tetriśa 'vyabhicārī'
saba mili' 'rasa' haya camatkāra-kārī

There are other ingredients, beginning with complete despondency and jubilation. Altogether there are thirty-three varieties, and when these combine, the mellow becomes very wonderful.
(Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).

pañca-vidha rasa — śānta, dāsya, sakhya, vātsalya
madhura-nāma śṛńgāra-rasa — sabāte prābalya

"There are five transcendental mellows — neutrality, servitorship, friendship, parental affection and conjugal love, which is also known as the mellow of sweetness. Conjugal love excels all the others.
(Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).
