A rather interesting set of questions since I saw the guru for the first time in
five years while I attended the death/rebirth ritual of one his favorite
disciples.  The disciple was considered to be next in line to take over.  He
died instantly of a cerebral hemmorage in his late forties.

It was very emotional, but in a positive way, seeing him and my old friends,
most of who are still his devoted disciples.  I have no idea if he was
"upa-guru", but I thank him from the bottom of my heart that he gave me the
knowledge and training to be where I am now.

With all you fine people in the Theosophical movement.
