The sädhaka engages in the sweet prema-sevä of Rädhä-Kåñëa in the manifest Vraja-dhäma throughout the eight periods of the day. In his eternal form he attains service in the mood of a gopé. As he performs bhajana of this pair of names, he remembers Rädhä and Kåñëa’s meeting in which Rädhékä’s maïjarés serve Çré Yugala by offering tämbüla and so on.

He who was formally the ajäta-rati-sädhaka now manifests a natural aversion to that which is unrelated to Kåñëa. By chanting the holy name with complete dedication to Kåñëa, his heart melts and becomes extremely soft. Açru, pulaka and other añöa-sättvikabhävas manifest to the degree of dhümäyita, the smouldering condition.

He remembers the pastimes in which Rädhä and Kåñëa meet each other. Under the guidance of Çré Rüpa Maïjaré and other vraja-devés, he performs mänasé-sevä to Rädhä-Govinda in his internally conceived AJ Ä TA- RATI-SÄ DH AKA gopé form. By continuously chanting, anarthas are

Performing näma-saìkértana with faith nullifies ignorance and cleanses the mirror-like heart.
He also attains the ekädaça-bhävas and the five daçäs. However, the sädhaka overwhelmed by vipralambharasa performs näma-saìkértana considering himself devoid of bhakti. At this time a vision manifests in his heart: Çré Rädhä is intensely eager to meet Kåñëa and, following the instruction of Våndä-devé, goes to meet Him in a bower on the Yamunä’s shore. Fully absorbed in thinking of each other, They search for one another.
