Brahmananda Saraswati, the Shankracharya (highest seat of the Shankara tradition) of the Northern Math (in the Himalayas.)

Was Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's teacher (perhaps the one who gave him the title Maharishi, as he claims the title was bestowed upon him by a teacher, though that is questionable.) When doing the puja (TM initiation ceremony), Maharishi heavily included Guru Dev among the "saintly" teachers in the Shankara tradition.

(props to my mom, former TM teacher, for some of this info.)
