Dear friends 

My views are: 

I did not know that Ramalingam already expressed his prophecies in 1850. Can anyone document that? 

There have through centuries been prophecies about a coming World Teacher. In this there is nothing new. 
Many a village or city have had such prophecies through the centuries in India. 

Did Ramalingam make any clear references to where and who this world teacher would be? 
We can read that he talked about Mahatmas in the far North - (Himalayas). 

COMING EVENTS FORETOLD (Comment by H. P. Blavatsky - on the prophecy on the formation of the TS) 
"This is one of those cases of previous foretelling of a coming event, which is least of all open to suspicion of bad faith. The honourable character of the witness, the wide publicity of his Guruâs announcements, and the impossibility that he could have got from public rumour, or the journals of the day, any intimation that the Theosophical Society would be formed and would operate in Indiaâall these conspire to support the inference that Ramalingam Yogi was verily in the counsels of those who ordered us to found the Society. In March, 1873, we were directed to proceed from Russia to Paris. In June, we were told to proceed to the 
Page 137 

United States, where we arrived July 6th.* This was the very time when Ramalingam was most forcibly prefiguring the events which should happen. In October, 1874, we received an intimation to go to Chittenden, Vermont, where, at the famous homestead of the Eddy family, Colonel Olcott was engaged in making his investigationsânow so celebrated in the annals of Spiritualismâof the so-called âmaterialization of Spirits.â November, 1875, the Theosophical Society was founded, and it was not until 1878, that the correspondence began with friends in India, which resulted in the transfer of the Societyâs Headquarters to Bombay in February, 1879.

I have been following the predictions of Saint Ramalingam. Could you give 
some reference about his prediction of the coming of World Teacher. Nothing 
surprises me because, he knew of the founding of TS and move of TS to India 
even before HPB knew about the founding of the TS. I would not be surprised 
if he himself was a great Initiate because outside the Brotherhood this 
information was not known at the time the Saint lived. 

Also could you give a reference to Radha Burnier's statement regarding the 
Saint foretelling WT comng.
