- I, H.H. Sri Dadaji Mahendranath, as the author of the writings contained
in the publication ``The Scrolls of Mahendranath'',
and spiritual leader of The International Order of Naths, do on this
date, transfer all international rights of copyright of said publication,
including rights of legal ownership, all other connected perogatives,
including but not limited to the receipt of royalties, rights of licensure
to outside agents, as well as the right to translate or adapt this

title transfer to the International Order of Naths.

contents of any of my writings, without penalty of royalty payment
to any other of my agents, if such writings had been previously published.
I further assert, that I previously have not entered into any exclusive
agreement of publishing my writings prior to today, which
might incorrectly imply a prior transfer of this author's copyright
ownership to any other agent.
- Upon my Maha samadhi (death), I will that all my rights of copyright
to any other of my writings not contained in ``The
Scrolls of Mahendranath'' be transferred to The International Order
