Just for da record, "His Holiness" is fairly commonly applied to gurus by their followers in India. Don't know if it's traditional per se, but it wouldn't be seen as outrageous, in my understanding. It simply means that the guru, in the opinion of his/her followers, has found God. constantly says "my Vedic science," and then there's > this (is "founding" something an accomplishment if that thing never > succeeds?): > > A Glimpse of Maharishi's Achievements > Over Forty Years Around the World > (1957-1998) > > 1957: Maharishi founds the world-wide Spiritual Regeneration Movement. > > 1957-1967: Maharishi introduces research in the field of consciousness and > brings to light seven states of consciousness. > > 1970: The first scientific research validating the effects of Maharishi's > Transcendental Meditation programme is published in the international > scientific journals Science and Scientific American. > > 1972: Maharishi inaugurates his World Plan and creates a new science -- the > Science of Consciousness, the Science of Creative Intelligence, training > 2,000 teachers of this science [by now 40,000] to bring the timeless message > of Transcending to all parts of the globe. > > 1975: Maharishi discovers the Constitution of the Universe -- the lively > potential of Natural Law -- in Rk Ved, and discovers the structuring > dynamics of Rk Ved in the entire Vedic Literature. > > On the basis of the discovery of the Maharishi Effect, Maharishi celebrates > the Dawn of the Age of Enlightenment around the world, with grand > celebrations on all continents. > > India's Lok Sabha issues a proclamation, one of many issued by governments > around the globe, commending Maharishi's world-wide activities. > > 1976: Maharishi creates a World Government for the Age of Enlightenment with > its sovereignty in the domain of consciousness and authority in the > invincible power of Natural Law. > > Maharishi introduces the TM-Sidhi Programme and the experience of bubbling > bliss in Yogic Flying to create supreme mind-body co-ordination in the > individual and coherence in world consciousness. > > 1978: Maharishi inaugurates the "Ideal Society Campaign in 108 Countries". > > Maharishi creates the World Peace Project, sending teams of Yogic Flyers to > the most troubled areas of the world, to calm the violence through their > self-referral performance of the Transcendental Meditation & TM- Sidhi > programme. > > Maharishi formulates his Absolute Theories of Government, Education, Health, > Defence, Economy, Management, and Law and Order to raise every area of life > to perfection. > > 1980: Maharishi brings to light the commentary of Rk Veda, Apaurusheya > Bhashya, as the self-generating, self-perpetuating structure of > consciousness. > > 1981: Maharishi organises the centuries-old scattered Vedic Literature as > the literature of a perfect science -- Maharishi's Vedic Science and > Technology. > > 1984: The first group of 7,000 Yogic Flyers gathers in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. > Scientific research on this assembly validates Maharishi's prediction that > when the square root of one percent of the world's population practices the > TM-Sidhi programme, including Yogic Flying, together in one place, positive > trends increase and negative tendencies decrease throughout the whole world. > > 1985: Maharishi brings to light the full potential of Ayur-Veda, Gandharva > Veda, Dhanur-Veda, Sthapatya Veda, and Jyotish to create a disease- free and > problem-free family of nations. > > 1988: Maharishi formulates his Master Plan to Create Heaven on Earth for the > reconstruction of the whole world, inner and outer. > > Maharishi brings to light Supreme Political Science to introduce automation > in administration and create conflict-free politics and a problem- free > government in every country. > > Maharishi inspires the formation of a new political party, the Natural Law > Party, in an increasing number of countries throughout the world, to enrich > and support national law with Natural Law. > > 1993: Maharishi inaugurates Global Ram Raj. > > Maharishi's Absolute Theory of Government and his practical formula "A Group > for a Government" -- gaining support of Natural Law by creating and > maintaining a group of Yogic Flyers -- is verified politically in Mozambique > and scientifically by a multi-million dollar experiment Washington, DC in > the USA. > > Maharishi discovers the Veda and Vedic Literature in human physiology, > establishing the grand unity of all material diversity of creation -
