His Holiness Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji has most generously invested huge sums of money in building the excellent training infrastructure for the JSSTICE. Situated in the centre of the prestigious Jayanagar area of Bengaluru city, JSSTICE boasts of an extensive building allotted by His Holiness Sri Swamiji on the second floor of the JSS educational complex. It is easily accessible from all parts of Bengaluru.
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.
JSS Mahavidyapeetha has undertaken a huge responsibility of educating the poor masses and bringing about social transformation, especially in rural Karnataka. Being a frontrunner in taking up social causes for redressal through philanthropy, it has achieved several milestones in establishing nearly 300 institutions across the country and abroad.
His Holiness Jagadguru Dr. Sri Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji, founder of JSS Mahavidyapeetha, passionately pursued, against heavy odds, the dream of providing education to the poor and downtrodden rural people. The infinite compassion for the underprivileged could not be fully realized during his earthly sojourn. One of his greatest desires was to provide state-of-the art training facility for those who had the desire to join Union and State services but lacked opportunity and could not afford due to lack of means. JSS Training Institute for Competitive Examination (JSSTICE), established in Bengaluru in 1991, is the result of that long-cherished vision of His Holiness Swamiji. It was basically aimed at drawing and harnessing many a young talent aspiring for civil services, and instill in them the required self-confidence through rigorous training so as to meet the challenges.
