So what.. “The British Association for Southeast Asian Studies”! Yeah but, 
could you really trust colonists to really understand what was going on and 
then tell what happened. Clearly Maharishi was SBS's closest and most trusted 
aid. It all worked out for the best. Look what those two did for the world in 
their lifetimes at a time. Is quite remarkable really.
 Jai Guru Dev, -Buck in the Dome

Svāmī Brahmānanda Sarasvatī passed away in 1953, but he had not clearly 
indicated his successor. This immediately caused a problem, as he had initiated 
a number of disciples into Saṃnyāsa. 


 A few weeks after he passed away, a will was found, according to the terms of 
which, a disciple called Svāmī Śāntānanda Sarasvatī was named as the first 
choice for succeeding to the Jyotirmaṭha title. 


 However, many followers of Brahmānanda Sarasvatī were satisfied neither with 
the credentials of Śāntānanda, nor with the validity/authenticity of the will. 
Perhaps, the doubts about the will were themselves based partly upon the 
perception that Śāntānanda was not a good choice for successor.

   Lawson, I'm a little curious: were there any politics involved in the 
choosing of a successor for Guru Dev?

   Professor Anoop Chandola: "What about that 'maharishi' who is with the 
Beatles? Is he legitimate?"

 Swami Shantananda Saraswati, hand-picked successor to Swami Brahmanda 
Saraswati (first Shankaracharya of Jyotirmath in 165 years): "Let me put it to 
you this way: he would be my first choice as my successor, but they won't allow 
it due to the caste laws."


 You may think that MMY was a charlatan, but Gurudev's hand-picked successor 
did not.

 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,
