Miṣṭa (मिष्ट) refers to “various kinds of sweetmeats”, according to the Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta 2.3.44ff—Accordingly:—“[...] There were soft cakes made with mung dhal, soft cakes made with ripe bananas, and soft cakes made with urad dhal. There were various kinds of sweetmeats [viz., miṣṭa], condensed milk mixed with rice cakes, a coconut preparation and every kind of cake desirable. [...] Thus Lord Kṛṣṇa was offered all the food, and the Lord took it very pleasantly”
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
