English translation

“The uddīpanas for the dāya-vīra are such things as the appearance of suffering in a person who will be the object of mercy (Kṛṣṇa in disguise). The anubhāvas are steadiness, words of comfort and protecting those in distress, even at the cost of one’s life. The vyabhicārī-bhāvas are such things as autsukya, mati and harṣa.”
