Mesclar Vaidhi com Raganuga

From the commentary of Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura on Bhakti Rasamrta Sindhu 1.2.295:

"True, on the path of Raganuga Bhakti, meditating on the divine pastimes is the main Sadhana, however in the primary stage we are not qualified for Lila Smarana.

Therefore we should concentrate more on hearing, chanting and following the other rules of Bhakti.

Then as our chitta gets more and more purified, we are drawn towards Lila Smarana.

Slowly our Smarana becomes more intense. Ultimately when we reach the zenith of Bhajana, Lila Smarana naturally becomes the major part of Bhajana."

Esta é a explicação para aqueles desejosos de trilhar o caminho de Raganuga, mas que ainda não estão purificados, para mesclar Vaidhi com Raganuga.

śravaṇotkīrtanādīni vaidha-bhakty-uditāni tu |
yāny aṅgāni ca tāny atra vijñeyāni manīṣibhiḥ ||1.2.296||

“The discriminating practitioners should accept the Angas that were mentioned in Vaidhi Bhakti, such as hearing and chanting, as Angas of Raganuga Bhakti.”

Jiva Goswami:

“The path of Raganuga Bhakti is honored simply by feeling special regard for the Ragatmika associates of Lord Krsna. Yet, a person in whom such Ruci as defined above has not yet sprouted (Ajata Ruci) should still execute Raganuga Bhakti combined with the practices of Vaidhi Bhakti.”
