~Maharishi~

Maharishi, or maharsi, is a Sanskrit word typically used as an honorary title which is added onto the name of an enlightened spiritual teacher. It can be applied to an awakened yogi and has been bestowed upon many figures who were central to the yoga tradition.

The term is derived from the roots maha, meaning “great,” and rsi, meaning “seer.” It has been used in English since the 18th century and usually refers to a Hindu or Vedic guru with great mystical knowledge.
