BhS ([section] 171) is the first place where we see yadrcchaya describing an event prompted by the compassion (krpa) of a devotee, who nevertheless acts with complete freedom.
Jiva's argument in BhS [section]180 is that the cause of bhakti, or "turning to the Lord," is not the compassion (krpa) of the Lord--Visvanatha will agree but for other reasons--because God is unable to feel compassion:
The nature of compassion (krpa) is a thought produced when there is contact between one's own mind and the suffering of another person.
In the section above I demonstrated that Jiva Gosvamin argued that conviction (sraddha), the second step on the path of bhakti, is developed by contact with a devotee (sadhu-sanga), an event that occurs spontaneously (yadrcchaya) and is motivated by the devotee's compassion or empathy (krpa).
Adrian Burton, however, translates yadrcchika, as "causeless" qualifying krpa "mercy": "That bhakti, however, can only be obtained through the causeless [yadrcchika] mercy [krpa] of my exalted pure devotees; it cannot be obtained through human efforts" (Burton 2000: 321, brackets added by me).
Two different senses of the word compassion (Jerpa) are used by Jiva and Visvanatha: krpa as a devotee's feeling for the naive when s/he remembers what it was like to suffer (as discussed in BhS [section] 180, and [section] 2 of this article), and krpa as the "full blossoming of the Lord's compassion" toward his devotee when the svarupa-sakti is manifest but is wholly disconnected from the soul's suffering (as discussed in SV 2.9.33, [section]3 and n.

A l'interieur de la tradition sanskrite dans la colonne F1, on notera la similarite entre les brahmanes Krpa et Drona.
Quoiqu'il habite a la cour, Krpa a peu de relations avec Bhishma, qui ne le traite jamais en frere adoptif.
A propos des autres lignes, on a deja note pour la colonne F1 la similarite entre Evandre et Numa a Rome, et la similarite entre Krpa et Drona en Inde ; mais ces deux phenomenes independants constituent une similarite entre les deux traditions.
(12.) Krpa, brahmane, actif jusqu'a la fin de l'epopee (Mbh 17.1.13), est plus valorise que Krtavarman.
(24.) Autres similarites entre les lignes 1 et 2 : 1) Si Krpa est recu avec gentillesse par Samtanu, il en est de meme pour Evandre recu par Faunus.
