Sujalpa (सुजल्प) refers to “inquiring about Kṛṣṇa out of simplicity” 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., sujalpa]. They are full of intense longing, and they arise from bhāvas such as jealousy, envy, restlessness, pride, and eagerness. Sujalpa is inquiring about Kṛṣṇa out of simplicity, with a mood of gravity, humility, restlessness, and eagerness.
