I discuss the relation between the eigenfunctions and eigenvalues of the JIMWLK Hamiltonian and those of its low density limit - the BFKL Hamiltonian. I show that the eigenfunctions get corrections in the perturbation theory (expansion in powers of the charge density), while the eigenvalues do not. I also explain how the bootstrap condition arises automatically from the JIMWLK/KLWMIJ framework as direct consequence of the hermiticity of the Hamiltonian. Leading correction to the BFKL reggeized gluon wave function is calculated.
