ABOUT JSS Mahavidyapeetha

The gift of knowledge is infinitely greater than gift of food and with this great concept, JSS Mahavidyapeetha was formally established in 1954 by Jagadguru Sri Veerasimhasana Samsthana Math, Suttur, Mysore District.

Today it is the centre of learning that guides more than 300 institutions spread out in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh & abroad. From the beginning, the founder of the Vidyapeetha was convinced that while modern academic education was essential, it was by itself not sufficient to create a free democratic and civilized society. To formalise these concepts His Holiness Dr. Sri. Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji caused the establishment of a number of institutions dedicated to the promotion of General, Collegiate Education, Technical Education, Medical Sciences, Professional Colleges, Training centres, Spiritual Education, Fine Arts, Literature & Ethics.
