Bhakti or devotional love is the way of directly encountering the rasa in human )experience. The aesthetic experience of rasa which is available to human beings was somehow not fully manifested and established from the 'intellectual' point of view. A glimpse of the rasa accomplished is available in the encounter of Uddhava and gopis. Humans by nature are rational and logical beings. They prefer logical conclusions which have universal applicability. To logically establish the path of rasa was the endeavour of the seekers and thinkers of V?ndavana, which emerged as the seventeenth century intellectual, cultural and spiritual centre of the Vraja region. Sri Rupa Gosvamin, a direct disciple of Sri Caitanya, was a shining member of the team of six Gosvamins. For him the emotionally experienced bhaktiprema-rasa is equally knowable and communicable. The human consciousness could reach the ocean of rasa through Sri Bhaktirasam?tasindhu. If there is an experience, it can be expressed and for an expression to be meaningful it has to be guided by a "grammar" or a Sastra.
