Sambhog and Vipralambha…....

In the lilas of Krishna there is Sambhog - Vipralambha. Sambhog means when Krishna meets the Gopis, Vipralambha is when He is separated from the Gopis. They are both essential for the Rasa to be complete; because when there is separation it makes the meeting sweeter than ever before. If you are always with someone, there is happiness, but when you are away and there is a reunion, there is even greater happiness. So separation makes the meeting more beautiful. And at the same time without meeting there is no meaning to separation. If you think that I’ll never see him again or never be with him again then that separation is hopeless. Han! But if you know that the meeting will come, then the meeting makes the separation more beautiful, and the separation makes the meeting more beautiful. This is Sambhog and Vipralambha.
