The sweet madhurojjvala lila-rasa of Radha Govinda Yugala is divided into two categories: vipralambha (divine love in separation) and sambhoga (divine love in union or meeting). Vipralamba is subdivided into four: 1) Purva-raga, love prior to meeting; 2) Maana, pouting huff, love sulk; 3) Prema-vaicittya, feeling separation even in the beloved’s presence; 4) pravasa, separation when the beloved is far away.

Purva-raga is very beginning stage of love, the falling in love period before lovers first meet. It is a very absorbing, exciting time full of hope, anticipation and doubts.

Acharyas describe eight ways that kindle or ignite Radha’s loving attraction to Shyamasundara:

Hearing the sound of Shyama’s murali.

Hearing from a girlfriend.

Hearing from messenger.

Hearing a song.

Hearing from professional reciters.

Seeing a painting.

A vision in a dream.

Direct vision.

One will definitely attain spiritual perfection in this very lifetime by following three steps:

1) Give up your INDEPENDENCE completely.

2) Fully SURRENDER to Sri Guru and Sri Krishna.

3) Sincerely SERVE Radha Govinda Yugala under the guidance of Sri Guru.

In this regard Srila Prabhupada said, “All of my disciples should attain spiritual perfection in this lifetime. Why wait for another?” This quote was also often spoken by Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati to his disciples.

Jai Jai Sri Radhe!

Giriraj Dharan Ki Jai!
