Maha Kumbh 2013 : Mahanirvani Akhara

DalaiLama and Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda
In the spiritual sphere as well as political field the Dashnami monastic orders, detailed in every corner of India, played an important role in moulding the currents and cross-currents in the Annals of our country’s history. We read a good deal of their multifarious activities during the later Moghul period.

It wears a unique character and is an efficient organization based on democratic principles with strict disciplined life, impassioned zeal of sacrifice to radiate Vedic religion and Acharya Shanker’s monism which serve the good of the vast body of Hindu society.

Even today there exists a long chain of these monasteries which are playing their part well in the spiritual, economic and cultural life of our country and each of them has its own contribution to make; amongst them Mahanirvani Akhara ranks first. It was established in the year 895 V.S. on the tenth day of Agahan (By Hindu calendar month) with its centre at Allahabad located in Daraganj on the bank of the holy river Gangas. Its branches are spread all over Onkareshwar, Nasik; Haridwar, Kurukshetra, Udaipur, Jwalamukhi, Kashi and Bhar (Akola).  The chief deity (Upasyadeo) of the Akhara is Sri Kapil Mahamuni.

The management of Akhara is on Panchayat system. The Chief consist of eight Mahants and eight karbaris. They are elected every sixth year at the time of Kumbh and Ardh Kumbh and about more than two thousand monks partake in the elections. 
This Management system is applicable for All Akhara.
