Acharya Shri Mahashraman is the Eleventh Acharya of the Terapanth Dharma Sangha. His external and internal personality overflows with dignity and attraction.
If one were to describe him physically, you would see a man of medium height, fair with a broad forehead, an angular sharp nose and compassionate eyes. His devotees feel immense bliss just by getting his graceful blessings.
Bereft of worldly desires, unattached, unperturbed, humble, and loyal, full of spark, soft-spoken, generous, and open minded – are just some of the words that can be used to describe his inner self. His personality is integration of illuminating and forgiving, spiritual and leadership, principle and pragmatic collaboration. His demeanor full of love attracts everyone instantly, even those meeting him for the first time. Such a rare balanced personality is truly possessed by him.
His work and actions reflect his ocean of knowledge, intellectual wisdom, atomic perception and far-reaching insight.
Despite being an Acharya of a religious order, his views are liberal and secular. He has a firm conviction to promote nonviolence, moral values and principles. He derives satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment only from diligent work.
Total abstinence is so excellent a thing that it cannot be carried to too great an extent. In my passion for it I even carry it so far as to totally abstain from total abstinence itself.~Acharya Mahashraman
