The term "Maharishi" isn't a title - it's an honorific used in Hinduism.//If he didn't deserve that, why don't you just refer to him as Mr. Varma?

It looks like you too are showing some cognitive dissonance. /
I call him Mahesh Prasad Varmint.

*Subject:* [FairfieldLife] The More Proper Pronunciation of Maharishi

in Sanskrit it is more correctly said,
More properly this decidedly is Not pronounced, Mahahorsie

Ignorant Americans and many westerners not knowing any better use a hard “s” which is too often flat or broad and wrong.
The Vedic is a softer “s”.
The Vedic 'r' is retroflex too, which is very unAmerican.
However, the seemingly affected version that one may hear around the TM movement which sounds somewhat European is more correct.

Now, as like with bija mantras and properly adjusted pronunciation it is also important how you use the mantra. Yet as with the proper mantra but with improper pronunciation also no wonder people go crazy. Care that you not mangle proper names in usage.
Jai Guru Dev,
