The two categories of Bhagavata..

The devotee who is completely dedicated to practicing and preaching and living the teachings of the book bhagavata is also bhagavata. So therefore we serve both the devotee who is living by the bhagavata as well as we serve the book bhagavata, and by this we get purified and we get special blessing. So bhagavatas they are glorified in the sastra and actually this, practice of Krishna consciousness is also meant for the bhagavatas. Those who are very powerful or pure bhagavatas or devotee they are also called maha bhagavata, or uttama adhikari. So Krishna when He comes, and He does His pastimes, it’s not an accident.
