Acharya Shri Shantisagar Maharaj, Charitra Chakravarti (आचार्य श्री शांतिसागर चरित्र चक्रवर्ती) was the first Digambar Jain Acharya of the 20th century, and the first Digambar Jain monk to wander in North India after several centuries. Padmanabh Jaini writes in the first paragraph of "The Path of Purification" (1979): He belonged to the lineage of Sena Gana, made famous by Acharya Jinasena and his pupils in the Rashtrakuta period. His initiator Devendrakirti belonged to this lineage. The Sena Gana itself was a branch of the Pancha-stupa lineage.
