Bharatamahārāja (भरतमहाराज) refers to:—Son of Ṛṣabhadeva. He became very spiritually advanced, but due to becoming attached to a pet deer, he took birth as a deer in his next life. In the life following that, as Jaḍa Bharata, he attained spiritual perfection. (cf. Glossary page from Śrī Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta).
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
