We will tell you how the titles of Shankaracharya & Mahamandaleshwar are being distributed

1/n
So let us Start with Sukhvinder Kaur aka #RadheMaa.

Title of #Mahamandaleshwar was granted to Sukhvinder Kaur in 2013 .

She paid a hefty amount for title.

But Sadhus of Juna Akhara (most influential amongst Dasanami Akhara) protested.

So the Title was withdrawn

2/n
Who is a #Mahamandaleshwar ?

It is a coveted Title that Akharas bestow on Sadhus .

It makes Sadhus Preacher -leaders.

The title comes with a hefty Price tag and has become a constant source of Income & Trouble for Akharas.
