when viśuddha-sattva is predominated by hlādinī, it is known as guhya-vidyā, or confidential knowledge. This guhya-vidyā has two faculties: bhakti and that which bestows bhakti. It is by these two agencies that bhakti, which consists of prīti (prema), is manifest. Bhakti which is of the nature of prīti is itself a special feature of guhya-vidyā
