Priti-sandarbha is a treatise on life’s ultimate goal, love of
Godhead. Although love of God may seem to be simply an emotional state,
the characteristics of love of God have been explained by the acharyas in great
detail. The author first describes four features of the Lord’s personality. Then
he describes how the pastimes of the Lord are considered in two divisions:
those of opulence and power (aisvarya), and those of sweetness (madhurya).
