Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu is a book written by rasikacarya Srila Rupa Gosvami in an elaborate way about the science of devotional service, and by reading this book one can understand the meaning of devotional service. But to elaborately explain madhura-rasa, which is not dealt in great depth in Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu, he wrote Sri Ujjvala-nilamani. It deals with every aspect of madhura-rasa. This book is the only definitive guide to madhura-rasa and ragamayi-bhakti.
