2009 08 08. Saturday.
Interesting talk with Jagadan (a yellow robed brahmachari) after the compost work today. He said that Swami Turyamrita is really considered to be the senior swami. I and most Amma devotees I know consider Swami Amritaswarupa to be the senior swami. Jagadan said that Swami Turyamrita was the first close disciple of Amma and has been with Her the longest. He said that Swami Turyamrita writes 90% of the Amma bhajans. Jagadan said the bhajans come to Turyamrita in a kind of trance state. Kind of like channeling. I wonder if Swami Turyamrita also creates the bhajan melodies, or if someone else does that.
