About Jagadguru Dr. Sri Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji Holiness

His Holiness Rajaguru Thilaka Jagadguru Dr. Sri Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji was born in 1916 at Suttur, a village situated on the banks of the holy River Kapila, about 28 km from Mysuru city, Karnataka, India. Suttur is the holy seat of Sri Jagadguru Veerasimhasan Mahasamsthana Math which has a history of more than one thousand years. His Holiness is the 23rd Pontiff in this holy tradition.

From a young age, with his acute perception and interaction with the rural populace, His Holiness acquired an insight into their social and economic problems that plagued them. These created in him a burning desire to find solutions. In this endeavour, His Holiness traveled to Banaras (Varanasi) to continue his study. But on the persuasion of his predecessor the 22nd Pontiff of Suttur Math, His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeshwara Mahaswamiji, popularly known as Manthra Maharshi, which was also endorsed by His Holiness Sri Gowrishankara Mahaswamiji, Pontiff of Sri Panchagavi Math, Mysuru, a well known scholar at Banaras Hindu University, Sri Rajendra Mahaswamiji changed his decision and came back to Mysuru with an inner urge and eagerness to serve the mankind.

His Holiness realized that educating the poor was the best way to enable them to tackle their problems themselves. At that time, educational facilities were few and far between in rural areas and beyond the reach of the impoverished rural poor. His Holiness, therefore, accorded great importance to serve the poor, a majority of whom could scarcely afford even a single meal a day. 

In the beginning, he established many free hostels and educational institutions for spreading education and awareness among the poor. While doing so, the Swamiji gave due importance also to unemployment and other daunting problems of the society. Thus, the idea of the JSS Mahavidyapeetha (JSSMVP), Mysuru, was conceived to tackle these problems through a more organized framework in a well thought out and planned manner.

The Swamiji with his implicit faith in God created an organization with excellent capabilities, to think, plan and execute his ideals. He achieved great success in whatever he undertook and accomplished so much in his life time.

Lifetime Selfless Service to Humanity and the Poor

His Holiness was indeed an incarnation of selfless service to mankind. He dedicated every minute of his life for over five decades for serving the society selflessly. He set exemplary standards in the service of society in general and the poor in particular in keeping with the lofty ideals and values enshrined in our holy scriptures of yore. His Holiness merged in divinity on the 6th December 1986, blessing his successor to continue the glory of this great institution.

Received Many Awards For His Achievements
