Premībhakta (प्रेमीभक्त) refers to the “highest level of devotees”, according to the Arcana-dīpikā (manual on deity worship).—The highest level of devotees, or premī-bhaktas, who have developed great love for Śrī Bhagavān, are beyond the rules and regulations of varṇāśrama. Being immersed in a mood of intense devotion, they perform worship endowed with ecstatic emotions (bhāva-sevā), with easily attainable ingredients. On the other hand, wealthy householder devotees should according to their capacity worship the deity with the best ingredients and celebrate various devotional festivals.
