U’khand: Sanyasi akharas refuse to accept Avimukteshwaranand’s appointment as new Shankaracharya
Niranjani Akhara secretary and president of Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad Mahant Ravindra Puri claimed that the appointment of Avimukteshwaranand as the Shankaracharya was against the rules.
There is a procedure to appointment the Shankaracharya and it is not followed in this case, he said.
A meeting of all seven sanyasi akharas will soon be convened to decide the strategy for the appointment of the new Shankaracharya, Puri added.
Avimukteshwaranand was declared the new Shankaracharya allegedly on the basis of a will prepared by Swami Swaroopanand.
