Akhil Bhartiya Akhara Parishad President Shrimant Narendra Giri on Monday blocked the controversy over the post of Acharya Mahamandaleshwar of Shri Panchayati Niranjani Akhara. He expelled Swami Pragyanand Giri from the post of Acharya Mahamandaleshwar three days before Pattabhishek of Mahamandaleshwar Kailashanand Giri, the new Acharya of Niranjani Akhara. Has announced to exclude Swami Pragyanand from the arena and saint community.
Swami Pragyanand Giri, the current Acharya of Niranjani Akhara arrived in Haridwar on Saturday after duly declaration of the post of new Acharya Mahamandaleshwar of Nirajani Akhara of Peetadheshwar Kailashanand Giri of Sri Dakshineswar Kali Temple. Swami Pragyanand charged the transactions with the Akharas.
Said that he is Acharya Mahamandaleshwar and will not resign. The Pattabhisheka of the new Acharya Mahamandaleshwar is against the saint tradition without his resignation. After this statement by Swami Pragyanand, the meeting of the saints took place on Monday under the chairmanship of Akhil Bhartiya Akhara Parishad President, Mr. Mahant Narendra Giri. After the opinion of the saints, Narendra Giri expelled Swami Pragyanand from the post of Acharya Mahamandaleshwar.
Srimanta Narendra Giri said that in 2019, Swami Pragyanand Giri was duly inducted to the post of Acharya Mahamandaleshwar, but conditioned that Acharya Mahamandaleshwar would be appointed only if he showed his experience in a year. Said that it was a mistake for him to do Pattabhisheka of Swami Pragyanand. After the Pattabhisheka, Swami Pragyanand disappeared and had no contact with the arena.
Called several times to come and go to the branches of the arena. Meanwhile, many Mahatma and Mahant Brahmalin also happened. Being the responsibility of Acharya, he should have come, but he did not think it appropriate to even send the condolence message. It is said that Swami Pragyanand was also left out of his traditions by the Panchayati Akhara Shri Niranjani. Now Pragyanand cannot come to the arena. Saints have also been excluded from society. Saints cannot eat or sit with the society.
