Madhurya Kadambini by Srila Vishvanatha Cakravarti Thakura is an analysis of the psychological states of a sadhaka, a practioner of bhakti, as he or she progresses through the stages of unsteady practice, anistha-bhajana-kriya.
The six psychological roadblocks of anistha-bhajana-kriya are extensions of our enjoying ego, strongly influenced by passion and ignorance, carried forward into our spiritual practice. The realignment of our desires and values, from served to servant, foster the stages that present themselves as early obstacles to pure bhakti. Comprehensive knowledge and thoughtful contemplation on these mentalities and their potential negative influence on our devotional service will result in steady progress based upon realistic expectations.
