Source: Pure Bhakti: Bhajana-rahasya - 2nd Edition

Udbhāsvara (उद्भास्वर) refers to:—The symptoms which reveal the spiritual emotions situated within the heart are called anubhāvas. When they manifest mostly as external actions, they are known as udbhāsvaras. Sāttvika-bhāvas are also known as anubhāvas because they also reveal the emotions of the heart. The term udbhāsvaras is used, therefore, to distinguish between anubhāvas arising sponta neously from sattva (sāttvika-bhāvas) and those which manifest as external actions involving some conscious intention. (cf. Glossary page from Bhajana-Rahasya).
