Ujjalpa (उज्जल्प) refers to “speaking of Kṛṣṇa’s treachery, hypocrisy, and so on out of jealousy” 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., ujjalpa]. They are full of intense longing, and they arise from bhāvas such as jealousy, envy, restlessness, pride, and eagerness. Ujjalpa means speaking of Kṛṣṇa’s treachery, hypocrisy, and so on out of jealousy arising from one’s pride, and always making hostile allegations against Him.
