Today, Suttur Math is backed with the services of over 15,000 dedicated personnel working in the institutions managed by it. At any given point in time, over 50,000 students study in its educational institutions which range from kindergartens to post-graduate technical and medical education institutions in both rural and urban centres. Nearly three lakh patients are treated in the hospitals and clinics run by the Math every year while millions participate in the spiritual gatherings and cultural festivals organized periodically by the Math. Through the various schemes of the agricultural research facilities made available, thousands of farmers are benefitted in the region.
With its administrative head-quarters located at the foot of the picturesque Chamundi Hills, in the erstwhile princely city of Mysore, Sri Suttur Veerasimhasana Math is today recognized as a major mission, and is drawing seekers of knowledge and wisdom in large numbers. The activities of the Math have drawn accolades from various quarters from the layman to the head of states.
“Work is Worship” the mantra that guides the Math is enshrined in its emblem. “Selfless Service” is the spirit behind every task that the Math undertakes and since the service is considered to be an offering to Lord Shiva, its purity and intention are of utmost importance.
Sri Suttur Veerasimhasana Math has grown over the centuries to be a multidimensional religious, cultural and educational movement. Spearheading the Math’s educational initiatives is Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeswara Mahavidyapeetha (JSS MVP), founded by the 23rd Pontiff, Jagadguru Dr. Sri Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamigalu.
Sri Suttur Math is an active ongoing movement to uphold the cause of social and economic justice, based on spiritual values and ideals
