Santa-rasa in Vraja

This is a great topic and an outstanding exegesis by Madhava. This is something that I'll be returning to for a long, long time.

The idea of santa-rasa being present in Vraja has always troubled me, kinda. When you hear different opinions from different teachers, there is a good chance that you will become confused. But in any case, I guess that I am happy that the matter is resolved through sastra. This just goes to that a serious and in-depth study of sastra is needed to understand siddhanta properly. I think it is imperative that some serious study of sastra is done, along with the japa.

You may as well know what you are doing.
