Hāsya, adbhuta, vīra, karuṇa, raudra, bhaya and bībhatsa—the seven indirect mellows—are explained in the Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu (4.1.6). The hāsya-bhakti-rasa, laughing devotion, is explained as follows:

vakṣyamāṇair vibhāvādyaiḥ puṣṭiṁ hāsa-ratir gatā
hāsya-bhakti-raso nāma budhair eṣa nigadyate

“When through devotional service a laughing attachment to Kṛṣṇa is developed, it is called hāsya-bhakti-rasa by learned scholars.”

Similarly, adbhuta-rasa is described in the Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu (4.2.1):

ātmocitair vibhāvādyaiḥ svādyatvaṁ bhakta-cetasi
sā vismaya-ratir nītādbhuta-bhakti-raso bhavet

“When one’s general attachment is fixed in wonder, it is called adbhuta-bhakti-rasa.”

Vīra-bhakti-rasa is described as follows (Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu 4.3.1):

saivotsāha-ratiḥ sthāyī vibhāvādyair nijocitaḥ
ānīyamānā svādyatvaṁ vīra-bhakti-raso bhavet
yuddha-dāna-dayā-dharmaiś caturdhā-vīra ucyate

“When attachment to Kṛṣṇa mixes with the bellicose tendency, the charitable tendency or the merciful tendency in the heart of the devotee, such devotion is called vīra-bhakti-rasa.”
