Sutra 82

guna-mahatmyasakti-rupasakti-pujasakti-smaranasak ti-dasyasakti-sakhyasakti-vatsalyasakti-kantasakty-a tma-nivedanasakti-tan-mayasakti-parama-virahasakti-rupai kadhapy ekadasadha bhavati

TRANSLATION

Although devotional service is one, it becomes manifested in eleven forms of attachment: attachment to the Lord's glorious qualities, to His beauty, to worshiping Him, to remembering Him, to serving Him, to reciprocating with Him as a friend, to caring for Him as a parent, to dealing with Him as a lover, to surrendering one's whole self to Him, to being absorbed in thought of Him, and to experiencing separation from Him. This last is the supreme attachment.
