Moments from the initiation ceremony

A Legacy in Creation

What does becoming a Mahamandaleshwar mean?

Being anointed as Mahamandaleshwar in the Akhil Bharatiya Shri Panch Nirmohi Ani Akhara of India weaves us more tightly to the fabric of Sanatan Dharma and the Vishnuswami Lineage, which dates back to over 2700 years. We are restrengthening our vows to contribute to society and facilitate the evolution of higher humanity. As Mahamandaleshars, we will spread the teachings of Sanatana Dharma around the world, including living a life of righteousness, serving and contributing to a better society. We will create ashrams in different countries, serving as educational and community centers, carrying out humanitarian work and empowering women. It is a legacy in conscious creation.
