"Education" is the key for social up-liftment of the masses and essential for economic development of any country. With this vision and foresight, his holiness Jagadguru Sri. Sri. Sri. Dr. Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji, the 23rd pontiff of Suttur Mutt established Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeswara (JSS) Mahavidyapeetha in the year 1954.

The JSS Mahavidyapeetha is the central body running over 250 educational, cultural and Religious institutions covering right from primary to professional education. The institutions are mostly spread across the length and breadth of Karnataka state and a few institutions are also located in Tamilnadu and Uttar Pradesh.

The Great Lineage of Suttur Math:

A quick look at the lineage of the Math brings to light the unswerving societal concern of the Pontiffs. If the establishment of the Math was incidental to establishing harmony and peace between two warring rulers of the region by its founder, Sri Shivarathreeshwara Shivayogi Mahaswamiji, the Pontiffs who succeeded saw purpose in promoting academics, literature, healthcare, infrastructure, etc.

President Of JSS Mahavidyapeetha

The present pontiff Jagadguru Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji,the 24th head of the Holy Seat, is a farsighted spiritual successor to Dr. Sri Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji.

Heading the mighty J S S Mahavidyapeetha as its president, he has been carrying the onerous responsibility as enjoined upon him by his illustrious preceptor.

He, with his vision, enthusiasm, dedication and devotion to causes dearer to his illustrious predecessors, has been the driving force in promoting the cause of education through a large network of JSS Educational System.

He is a saint involving himself in multifarious activities. A tireless person keeping himself always engaged in one programme or the other. A progressive thinker and a zealous reformer, he is relentlessly striving to empower the Mahavidyapeetha to meet the challenges of the present century.

This widely travelled and unassuming spiritual head is a prolific speaker. He has already edited some classics in Kannada.
