Mahadevendra Saraswathi V was the 67th Shankaracharya of the Kanchi matha. He was born Lakshmikanthan to Narasimha Sastri and Lakshmi. He was given the title Mahadevendra Saraswathi and made the Shankaracharya in 1907. He occupied the post for a brief period of seven days and died in 1907.
He was succeeded by his nephew, Swaminathan, a boy of thirteen, who became the sixty-ninth Shankaracharya with the title Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi VIII.
Mahadevendra Saraswathis Samadhi is located in Kalavai, next to his Gurus samadhi. Mahadevendra was also stuck by the same disease that caused the Siddhi of his Guru. He died within seven days of ascending the throne of the mutt. But before he died, he had sent word for Swaminathan to be his successor.
