bhāva-bhakti


bhāva-bhakti
the initial stage of perfection in devotion. A stage of bhakti in which śuddha-sattva, or the essence of Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s internal potency consisting of spiritual knowledge and bliss, is transmitted into the heart of the practicing bhakta from the heart of one of His eternal associates and softens the heart by different kinds of tastes. It is the first sprout of prema, or pure love of God. Bhāva-bhakti is the seventh of the eight stages of development of the bhakti-latā, the creeper of devotion.
In Śrī Bṛhad-Bhagavatāmṛta there are five divisions of bhāva accepted amongst bhaktas: 1) jñāna-bhakta, e.g. Bharata Mahārāja 2) śuddha-bhakta, e.g. Ambariṣa Mahārāja 3) prema-bhakta, e.g. Hanumān 4) prema-para-bhakta, e.g. the Pāṇḍavas headed by Arjuna 5) premātura-bhakta, ātura means “very eager for”, or agitated out of prema e.g. the Yādavas headed by Uddhava
