Sri Suttur Math – A Legacy Spanning a Millennium
Jagadguru Sri Veerasimhasana Mahasamsthana Math, popularly known as Sri Suttur Math, is a phenomenal movement that promotes social and economic justice based on its spiritual values and ideals. The influence of the Srimath’s activities has spread beyond the small historical village of Suttur, within and beyond the boundaries of Karnataka and even to the distant shores of other countries. The lineage of the Srimath brings to light the unwavering societal concern of its pontiffs. The inscriptional pieces of evidence support the establishment of Jagadguru Sri Veerasimhasana Mahasamsthana Math at Suttur Srikshethra during the reign of the Chola kingdom in the 10th Century CE. The luminous tradition handed down through centuries indicates that HH Adi Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeshwara Shivayogi Mahaswamiji is the founder of Sri Suttur Math. If the founding of the Srimath was incidental to establishing harmony and peace between the two warring factions of the region by its founder, the pontiffs who succeeded saw purpose in promoting the overall development of society.
