TRANSLATION
"In conjugal love [śṛṅgāra] there are two departments-meeting and separation. On the platform of meeting, there are unlimited varieties that are beyond description.
PURPORT
Vipralambha is described in the Ujjvala-nīlamaṇi:
yūnor ayuktayor bhāvo
yuktayor vātha yo mithaḥ
abhīṣṭāliṅganādīnām
anavāptau prakṛṣyate
sa vipralambho vijñeyaḥ
sambhogonnatikārakaḥ
na vinā vipralambhena
sambhogaḥ puṣṭim aśnute
When the lover and the beloved meet, they are called yukta (connected). Previous to their meeting, they are called ayukta (not connected). Whether connected or not connected, the ecstatic emotion arising due to not being able to embrace and kiss each other as desired is called vipralambha. This vipralambha helps nourish emotions at the time of meeting. Similarly, sambhoga is thus described:
darśanāliṅganādīnām
ānukūlyān niṣevayā
yūnor ullāsam ārohan
bhāvaḥ sambhoga īryate
"Meeting each other and embracing each other are aimed at bringing about the happiness of both the lover and the beloved. When this stage becomes increasingly jubilant, the resultant ecstatic emotion is called sambhoga." When awakened, sambhoga is divided into four categories:
(1) pūrva-rāga-anantara-after pūrva-rāga (attachment prior to meeting), sambhoga is called brief (saṅkṣipta);
(2) māna-anantara-after māna (anger based on love), sambhoga is called encroached (saṅkīrṇa);
(3) kiñcid-dūra-pravāsa-anantara-after being a little distance away for some time, sambhoga is called accomplished (sampanna);
(4) sudūra-pravāsa-anantara-after being far away, sambhoga is called perfection (samṛddhimān).
The meetings of the lovers that take place in dreams also have these four divisions.
