Re: Theos-World Re: As early as 1889, Blavatsky told about the World Teacher?

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.
