sthāyī bhābābiṣṭa citta pāiyā bibhāba-bitta
udbhaṭa bhābete āpanāra
prāṇa-bṛtte nyasa kore prāṇa sei nyāsa-bhore
deha prati bikṛti cālāya
baibarṇya romańca sweda stambha kampa swara-bheda
pralayāśru e aṣṭa bikāra
sańcārī je bhābacoya harṣāmārṣa āra bhoya
prabṛtti kāraṇa hoya līlā-kāle rase loya
āpane koraya anukhaṇa
dhūmayitā ujjwalitā dīptā āra su-uddīptā
ei cāri abasthālakhaṇa
jāra jei adhikāra sāttwika
se lakhaṇe hoya to' udoya
mahā-bhāba daśā jathā su-uddīptā bhāba tathā
anāyāse su-lakhitā hoya
1) When one's consciousness is overwhelmed with one's permanent ecstasy (sthayi-bhava), and attains the wealth of all special stimulants (vibhava), then another effect is produced of its own accord. That is, the life-air is regulated and forcibly directed within the body, thus causing various unusual transfigurations of the body.
2) The eight sattvika-vikaras are: changing of bodily colors, standing up of hairs, perspiration, shivering, choked voice, physical devastation, mental stupor, and torrents of tears. There are also 33 other transitory ecstasies known as sancari, including such emotions as jubilation, sorrow, fear, anguish, wonder, etc.
3) According to the particular mellow at play during any given lila of Radha-Krsna's eternal pastimes, then the sattvika bhava can take on four different degrees of intensity, namely 1) dhumyita (smoldering), 2) ujjvalita (ignited), 3) dipta (burning), and 4) uddipta (blazing).
4) Whoever has the adhikara or the capacity of qualification for these ecstasies experiences the awakening of the symptoms of the eight sattvika-vikaras. However, only in the mahabhava stage (as in Srimati Radharani) is it possible to observe the ornament of the uddipta blazing ecstasy.
