Srimad Bhagavatam is verily the "Sri Krishna Samhita" of the Universe.
The Sanskrit word Samhita means Bible. This great text has 18000 Slokams (verses), 335 Chapters, 12 Skandhams (Sub divisions) .A complete history of Vedic Culture, and covers the Tatvam (Essence) of the classical collections of Puranas.
Srimad Bhagavatham : 6.3.33.

maya-guneshu ramate vṛjinavaheshu

krsna-anghri-padma = of the lotus feet of Lord Krishna;
madhu = the honey;
lit = one who licks;
na = not;
punah = again;

Devotees who always lick the honey from the lotus feet of Lord Krishna do not care at all for material activities, which are performed under the three modes of material nature and which bring only misery.
Indeed, devotees never give up the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa to return to material activities.
Others, however, who are addicted to Vedic rituals because they have neglected the service of the Lord’s lotus feet and are enchanted by lusty desires, sometimes perform acts of atonement.
Nevertheless, being incompletely purified, they return to sinful activities again and again.
A devotee’s duty is to chant the Krishna mantram.
One may sometimes chant with offenses and sometimes without offenses, but if one seriously adopts this process, he will achieve perfection, which cannot be achieved through Vedic ritualistic ceremonies of atonement.
Persons who are attached to the Vedic ritualistic ceremonies, but do not believe in devotional service, who advise atonement, but do not appreciate the chanting of the Lord’s holy name, fail to achieve the highest perfection.
Devotees, therefore, being completely detached from material enjoyment, never give up Krishna consciousness for Vedic ritualistic ceremonies.
Those who are attached to Vedic ritualistic ceremonies because of lusty desires are subjected to the tribulations of material existence again and again.
King Parikshit has compared their activities to kunjara-sauca, the bathing of an elephant.

martyan = the human beings;

The order carriers of Lord Vishnu, who are worshiped even by the demigods, possess wonderful bodily features exactly like those of Vishnu and are very rarely seen. The Vishnudutas protect the devotees of the Lord from the hands of enemies, from envious persons and even from my jurisdiction, as well as from natural disturbances.
annam = food;
caranam = of those that move on wings;
acarah = the nonmoving (fruits and flowers);

hasta-yuktanam = of the animals with hands, like the tigers;
dvi-padam = of human beings, who have two legs;

catush-padah = the four-legged animals like the goat.
By nature’s arrangement, fruits and flowers are considered the food of insects and birds; grass and other legless living entities are meant to be the food of four-legged animals like cows and buffalo; animals that cannot use their front legs as hands are meant to be the food of animals like tigers, which have claws; and four-legged animals lik…
Chapter-3: Kapila’s Instructions to Devahuti - 17.
In the Third Book of the Srimad Bhagavata Mahapurana we have an elaborate presentation of the instructions given by Maharishi Kapila to mother Devahuti.
Everyone should read this wondrous conversation between Sage Kapila and Devahuti for the variety of themes dealt with in this connection.
Among many other things which are very important from the point of view of a sadhaka, the emphasis that Rishi Kapila lays here is concentration on God as the Supreme Person.
The concept of God as a Person is pre-eminent in all religions. We cannot but conceive God as a Great Person, Whose limbs have to be the objects of our concentration. The minute details of this process are described by Kapila in these chapters.
