Parijalpa (परिजल्प) refers to “showing one’s own expertise through expressions that establish faults” and represents one of the ten kinds of Citrajalpa or “discourses that occur when one meets a friend of one’s beloved”, according to a discussion between Vijaya Kumāra and Śrī Gopāla Guru Gosvāmī.—There are ten limbs of citrajalpa, [e.g., parijalpa]. They are full of intense longing, and they arise from bhāvas such as jealousy, envy, restlessness, pride, and eagerness. Parijalpa is showing one’s own expertise through expressions that establish faults in one’s prāṇa-dhana, such as His cruelty, treachery, and fickleness.
