1. spiritual emotions, love or sentiments
2. the initial stage of perfection in devotion (bhāva-bhakti). A stage of bhakti in which śuddha-sattva, the essence of the Lord’s internal potency consisting of spiritual knowledge and bliss, is transmitted into the heart of the practising devotee from the heart of the Lord’s eternal associates and softens the heart by different kinds of taste. It is the sprout of prema, and it is also known as rati. This is the seventh of the eight stages of the bhakti-latā, the creeper of devotion
