Ujjvala-nilamani is a supplement to Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu, which describes all the rasa, yet the conjugal one only in brief. Ujjvala-nilamani describes the conjugal rasa in great detail, following the general pattern of analyzing vibhavas, anubhavas, vyabhicari-bhavas, sattvika-bhavas and sthayi-bhavas. Parakiya and svakiya forms of love are discussed. Jiva Goswami in his commentary justifies svakiya whereas Visvanatha Cakravarti accepts parakiya as stronger.
