Future Disciples called Savaka-Bodhisattas are
(a) Future Chief Disciples (Agga savaka), a pair of Disciples like the Venerable Sariputta and the Venerable Moggallana,
(b) Future Great Disciples (Maha savaka), those like the eighty Great Disciples in the lifetime of Buddha Gotama and
(c) Future Ordinary Disciples (Pakati savaka), all arahats other than those mentioned above.
Thus there are three categories of Future Disciples.
