In this second volume of Priti sandarbha, the author first describes four features of the Lord's personality, called dhirodatta, dhiralalita, dhira-prasanta and dhiroddhata. Then, he describes how the pastimes of the Lord are considered in two divisions: those of opulene and power (aisvarya), and those of sweetness (madhurya). Examples are given of devotees who appreciate the opulence of the Lord, and devotees do not consider the opulence of the Lord due to being absorbed in appreciting His transcendental sweetness. While discussing the various relationships that devotees have with the Lord, the uddipanas (impetuses for ecstatic love) are described in detail, as well as the vyabhicaris (disturbing symptoms of ecstatic love), and other forms of ecstasy. The five primary relationships are discussed in this volume, as are the seven secondary relationships. Then, there is a details discussion of rasabhasa (the incompatible mixture of rasa). It is very interesting how, in the discussion of rasabhasa, Srila Jiva Gosvami gives many examples of how learned scholars sometimes point out what they feel to be rasabhasa in the verses of the Srimad-Bhagavatam. He cites the supposed existence of rasabhasa and then carefully explains how these are not actually incompatible mixtures of rasas. The author concludes that in the entire Srimad-Bhagavatam, there is no example of rasabhasa. Transliterated text and translation, translation / editing by Kusakratha / Purnaprajna
