D E , A history of Sanskrit literature. Classical period I, Calcutta , passim and especially S. For Gopala Bhatta see S. Joshi's book is largely based on the Haribhaktivilasa and other texts of the Caitanya school. Bhakti 21 is associated with a sense of possession in God and absolute detachment from all other things. Being the highest good, bhakti cannot be produced by any effort or course of conduct. It is eternal and exists already in the devotee's heart; the function of sddhana-bhakti is merely to make it manifest. As to Rupa's views on bhakti it may be comprehensively noticed that in accordance with the Bhagavadgita tradition it is defined as the mental state and the associated physical actions for yielding satisfaction to Krsna without any further desire, motive or object.

Such a bhakti has six characteristics: it destroys sins and ignorance; it is good or holy; it is so satisfactory that emancipation has no longer attractions for the devotee; its attainment is extremely difficult; its joy is infinitely superior to the joy of emancipation through knowledge of Brahman; this bhakti induces God to render service to his devotee. Neither ritual work, nor higher knowledge, nor asceticism can be regarded as useful.

Rupa, who was a meritorious poet, describes in his greatest work, the Ujjvalanilamani,82 the various conditions of lovers and bhaktas, and the several stages and modes of their affection. One of the interesting aspects of this book is that it illustrates the transition from ordinary devotion to deep amorous sentiment: as represented in the lives of Radha and the gopis this deeper phase of bhakti is secured by sympathetic imitation akin to the sympathetic interest displayed by the spectators of dramatic actions.

This work, in principle a treatise on poetics, is, like the Bhaktirasamrtasindhu, profusely illustrated with stanzas in praise of Krsna. The Padyavali83 "Series of stanzas" by the same author is an anthology of stanzas on Kisna-bhakti, naming the authorities quoted.

These songs have rightly been called "the most successful reproduction of the spirit of Jayadeva".

They contain also the only stanzas—eight in number—left of Caitanya himself, which give expression of his simple but vivid and passionate faith. It still regulates the religious rites of the Bengal Visnuites. Some subjects, e. It is a voluminous work of twenty chapters in verse, small prose lines introducing extracts quoted from other books. See also D. IX, 3. See H. DE, Dacca De, in NIA 9, p. IV of this History, p. In the Padyavali a number of successful stanzas ascribed to Laksmanasena and his contemporaries 12th cent. Vidagdhamadhavam finished in 87 and Lalitamadhavam , in ten acts and more complicated in plot, less dramatic than narrative in conception and execution,88 as well as the Danakelikaumudi, on the love affairs of the divine couple; and the Ganadvesadrpika in which Caitanya's companions are described as the gopis milkmaids in Krsna's surroundings incarnate.

In these works the more artificial forms of the traditional Sanskrit style are often prevalent. His brother Sanatana is also the author of the Brhad-Bhagavatamrtam89 which, like his other work, resulted from the tuition imparted by Caitanya to 84 For some other works dramas etc.

See D E , VaisNava faith, p. Four other works of this author belonging to the collection are the Astadasachandas on prosody , Utkalikavallari, Govindabirudavali, and Premendusagara. Some titles mentioned in handbooks are separate parts of the stotra collection, handed down singly. Rupa Gosvamin is also credited with some other works of this genre, a Yamunastotra, a Gandharvaprarthanastotra, as well as with a Mathuramahima and a dialogue between Radha and her friend about KrsNa, entitled Ujjvalacandrika.

Among the subjects dealt with are Krsna's flute, Radha's toilet, the meeting of the couple etc. Bhakti 23 the writer at Benares and deals inter alia with devout subservience, the interpretation of Vedic and other ancient texts in the light of the master's Visnuite bhakti, visions of Krsna's sports Ilia with the gopis, Krsna's miraculous deeds, with his nature and that of his bhaktas as well as the essence of bhakti, etc. In the six parts of this book Jiva elaborated the instruction imparted by Caitanya to his uncles Rupa and Sanatana.

Parts I-IV deal with Krsna as the foundation of everything existing and his aspects, part V with the way leading to Krsna, that is bhakti; VI with the goal, that is premab hakt i. That means, inter alia, that Krsna, the gopis, Vrndavana and its trees and cows are believed to be physically existent in limited forms and at the same time be unlimited and spiritual as a manifestation of God's essential nature. It is also their conviction that Lord Krsna is the manifestation of the entire godhead, and that bhakti, conceived as a transcendental process producing proximity to God and identical with emancipation, really means "to live with God".

Another work of considerable length by the same author is the GopalaCampu. In that heavenly kingdom two bards, Snigdhakantha and Madhukantha by name, give by turns an account of Krsna's birth in the mundane world and of all events following this incarnation. Their audience, the principal figures of these events, hear their narrative with rapt attention and as if they had been dreaming, because now they are in heaven Krsna's earthly sports appear to be different from the eternal Ilia they experience and witness in their present abode.

A campu is an elaborate composition in prose and verse. In this Hari-Namamrta-Vyakarana "Grammar of the ambrosia of Krsna's name" all examples are borrowed from bhakti texts and all concepts centre round the name of God. Among the many other writings of the same author92 are a work on ritual worship of Krsna , Krsnarcanadlpika, and commentaries on the Bhagavata-Purana Kramasandarbha and the Brahma- Sutras.

Passing mention may also be made of Prabodhananda Sarasvati's Caitanyacandramrta "a remarkable contribution to the stotra literature of the sect" in which this "emotional ascetic" voices his feelings of adoration for his teacher Caitanya. A third work of which he is held to be the author, the Samgita-madhava, deals with the Vrndavanalila of the couple Krsna and Radha.

Krsna Das Kaviraj was the famous author of the standard life of Caitanya Caitanyacaritamrta, written in Bengali mixed with Hindi. One of the many Sanskrit works of the same author, who lived in the second half of the 16th century, is the admired Govindalilamrta 'The Nectar of Krsna's divine play' which deals with the amours of Radha and Krsna, in the usual way poetically described: although their love is in this work, just as in other poems of this class, sometimes presented in a more or less sensuous garb, it is essentially spiritual.

Because they circulate in Bengali characters they are hardly known outside the community in which they were produced.

By its ardent faith as well as its successful devotional poetry the Visnuite movement inaugurated by Caitanya exerted a considerable influence upon the poets and theologians of the following centuries. The Bhaktirasamrtasindhu and the Haribhaktivilasa were raised to the rank of authoritative doctrinal works sdstra.

The influence of ideological and literary as well as terminological and phraseological peculiarities of the great exponents of this bhakti faith is especially perceptible in the religious ideas and poetic art of Krsnadasa. This poet was born ? He was the son of Hita Harivamsa98 born ?

Neither Hitaharivamsa nor his son expressed philosophical opinions on brahman, mdyd, world, soul or deliverance.

Much indebted to the Visnuite groups of the Madhvas and the followers of Nimbarka and Caitanya, Hitaharivamsa wrote, beside two books in Hindi, the stanzas of the Radhasudhanidhi in Sanskrit. Although tradition has it that he was still a child when he recited this collection it has up to modern times remained an admired work of value for the adherents.

These were strongly influenced by the followers of Caitanya, the main point of difference being the predominant place given by them to Krsna's beloved Radha. As God's! Other Sanskrit texts of a more or less ritual character however did appear in Bengal, for instance two works by Vallalasena Ballalasena , the learned king of Gauda, viz.

Bengal's contribution to Sanskrit literature is vast and varied. For an orthodox view of the 'philosophy' of Radha see G. Sudhdnidhi: "treasure of ambrosia". Krsna, while being the 'source' of this joy and this sport, is her adorer. As his eternal partner she inspires him with love: the theme was already central in Jayadeva's masterpiece, the Gitagovinda 12th century and was readily adopted by later Bengal poets. In propagating their views among the masses the Radha vallabhi poets were much inclined to conform to the rules and traditions of refined literary Sanskrit.
