Sanskrit Schools

JSS Sanskrit Schools are run by JSSMVP to encourage learning of the ancient Indian wisdoms like Veda, Agama and Astrology, which requires knowledge of Sanskrit Language. The organization believes that Sanskrit does not have its roots from the Indian Subcontinent. Besides, the language is extensively used in the literature of sacred hymns, philosophy, mythology, ancient science, mathematics, history, poetry, drama, music, and various other disciplines such as traditional Ayurveda, yoga etc. It is the language of the environment. It is also believed that students who learn Sanskrit have sharp memory and better cognitive skills. JSSMVP started the Kyatanahalli Sri SiddlingaiahSamskrutaPatashala 60 years ago in Mysuru to teach Sanskrit. The institution is currently running 10 such schools. Among them, five schools have been established in rural areas to give rural students an opportunity to learn Sanskrit.

About 1,800 students (approx. 1,000 boys and 800 girls) are studying in these schools. Veda, Agama Shastra and Astrology are also being taught in these schools in Mysuru and Suttur.

In addition to this, His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamy has opened a Sanskrit college in 2013 in Suttur. The college spreads the light of knowledge by teaching Alankara, Shakthivishishtadwaitha Vedantha, Jyothishya and Sanskrit language to talented rural students.
