Mahamandaleshwar (or Maha Mandaleshwar) is a title used by Hindu monks of the Dashanami order of renunciates (“swamis”) founded by Shankaracharya. A person called Mahamandaleshwar has been elevated by his peers to the highest level of traditional, Hindu spiritual guardianship. Literally, “Mahamandaleshwar” means “Superior of great and/or numerous monasteries” or “Superior of a religious district or province” (maha = great, mandala = district, ishwara = head, sovereign).
