liilaa-rasa & bhAga-rasa

Dear SrI-vaishNava-s

SrIman-nArAyaNa, being the sarva-SEshin, is said to experience "bhOga-
rasa" if a jIva performs devotional service with a true knowledge of 
the tattva-trayam & the SarIrAtma-bhAva.

Also SrIman-nArAyaNa, being the sarva-SEshin, would _still_ be 
the "experiencer" of any act that a jIva might commit in ignorance of 
the SarIrAtma-bhAvam.  Such ignorant acts are supposed to cause 
some "liilaa-rasam" in the Lord.

I am trying to understand  
  what this the "liila-rasa" is,
  how it differs from the "bhoga-rasa". 

What do our aachaarya-s/aazhvaar-s say?
