(Sanskrit) From brahmavid ब्रह्मविद्, "knower of Brahma, skilled in magic and sacred spells" and varishta वरिष्ठ, "best, most excellent, greatest." A being who has incarnated the ultimate knowledge of the divine. See: Brahma.
"The one who does not know how to fulfill his duties as a simple citizen cannot tread the path of the great mysteries. Many disciples forget the good manners of a sincere and honorable gentleman or lady and become truly irresponsible and even dangerous individuals."
