Definition of maha
Maha means great - and in all spiritual literature it is used in terms of spiritually great, spiritually advanced and it is used in conjunction with other words - never on its own.
Some most common use is in combination with:
- Avatar - Mahavatar
- Samadhi - Maha Samadhi
- Mudra - Maha mudra
When the following word starts with a letter "a" as well, then only one single "a" is written and the other one omitted. Such as in above example of Mahavatar ( maha + avatar = mahavatar ).
