Vaishnavism (Vaishava dharma)

Source: Pure Bhakti: Jaiva-dharma

Rūḍha (रूढ) refers to one of the two types of Mahābhāva, according to a discussion between Vijaya Kumāra and Śrī Gopāla Guru Gosvāmī.—Mahābhāva, which is the embodiment of the highest nectar, attracts the heart and causes it to attain its own intrinsic nature. There are two types of Mahābhāva: rūḍha and adhirūḍha. Rūḍha-mahābhāva is the stage in which all the sāttvika-bhāvas are manifest in the uddīpta condition. In rūḍha-mahābhāva, even the passing of a moment is unbearable; this rūḍha-mahābhāva churns the hearts of those present; a kalpa seems to pass like a moment (kalpa-kṣaṇatva); one feels dejected because of the apprehension that Śrī Kṛṣṇa is undergoing some inconvenience, although He is actually happy; one becomes forgetful of everything, even oneself, although one is not bewildered; and one moment seems to pass like a kalpa (kṣaṇa-kalpatā). Some of these anubhāvas are experienced during meeting, and some during separation.
