Today, December 20, is the birthday anniversary of Shri Guru Deva, His Divinity Swami Brahmananda Saraswati, Jagadguru Bhagavan Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math (December 20, 1868-May 20, 1953).
Shri Guru Deva was the beloved master of my teacher, His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (c1917-2008).
Therefore, I revere Shri Guru Deva as my Paramguru — my teacher’s master, my spiritual Grandfather Teacher.
Shri Guru Deva was celebrated as Maha Yogiraj (Greatest of Yoga Teachers) in the family of the Yogis of India and was held by the Gyanis (Jñanis), the Realized Sages, as personified Brahmanandam, Universal Bliss Consciousness. He was addressed by the world famous Oxford philosopher and president of India, Dr Radhakrishnan, as “Vedanta Incarnate”, Embodiment of Truth, the living fulfillment of the Vedic Wisdom of the Unified Wholeness of Reality.
