Acharya Mahashraman born 13 May 1962 is the eleventh Acharya, supreme head of Jain Shwetambara Terapanth sect. Mahashraman heads all activities functioning under Terapanth organisation, most notably Anuvrat, Preksha Meditation, Jeevan Vigyan (Science Of Living). All the Terapanth sub-organisations, notably Jain Vishva Bharati, Terapanth Mahasabha, etc. are working under the guidance of Mahashraman.
Muni Sumermalji (Ladnun) observed the light of eternity within Mohan and with the guided permission of the then Acharyasri Tulsi he provided Mohan a new name and outlook of Muni Mudit Kumar on the 5th of May 1974 in Sardarshahar. Muni Mudit Kumar started his spiritual journey and explorations under the able guidance of Muni Sumermalji learning the DASHVAIKALIK in approx 42 days only, surprising all.
Time does not stop, every moment in the present becomes a part of the past after coming from the future. Only great people are inked in golden words in the books of history, and in Sardarshahar a similar personality took birth on the 13th of May 1962 in the well known family of the Dugars.Being the second youngest among a group of 8 brothers and sisters, born to Sri Jhmarmalji and Smt Nemadevi Dugar he was the most loved.
After Muni Mudit Kumar's initial training, he then was sent to the then Acharyasri Tulsi for further discovery of self and development. This process witnessed a niche being carved for Muni Mudit as his devotion and submission for the spiritual path was exampled for all others in the Sangh.
With his loyalty also came the various posts he was honoured with to serve the organization. He was appointed as personal help to Acharya Tulsi on the 13th of May 1985, then as the personal help to Yuvacharya Mahapragya in the year 1986. In the same year he was appointed as SAJH PATI (Group Leader) followed by the nomenclature as MAHASHRAMAN on 6th September in Ladnun.
Mahashramanji was honoured with the Yuvacharya title in Bafna School at Gangashahar by Acharya Mahapragya. He began serving his GURU by relieving him from most of his management work and providing him enough time to continue his self discovery.
Yuvacharya Mahashraman was hailed as the 11th Acharya of Terapanth Dharmsangh on the 23rd of May 2010 after the heavenly abode of our 10th Acharya Mahapragya on the 9th of May 2010 in Sardarshahar (Hometown of Acharya Mahashraman), Rajasthan amid ceremonious celebrations.
