About Shri Sode Vadiraja Mutt:

Udupi  – a coastal city of Karnataka is well known for the temple of Lord Krishna. About 700 years ago, saint Shri Madhwacharya, (considered as third incarnation of Lord Vayu) who initiated and propagated dwaita philosophy installed an idol of Lord Krishna in Udupi. For the continuation of uninterrupted puja and other customs related to this, Shri Madhwacharya appointed eight successors. The lineage of these eight direct successors of Shri Madhwacharya is today known as “Ashta Matha” (eight mutt). One amongst these mutts is Shri Sode Vadiraja mutt. Shri Vadiraja Theertha, a saint of this mutt has contributed immensely to the propagation of Madhwa Philosophy and also for the betterment of the society irrespective of caste, creed and community. As a respect to his works, the mutt has attached his name along with it.

Contribution by Sode Vadiraja Mutt to the Education Sector:

Over many years, Shri Sode Vadiraja Mutt was providing education in ancient Indian “gurukula” system. There were many studentsVishwendra Theertha Swamiji who have been educated in disciplines like Vedic literature, Madhwa Philosophy, Astrology etc. under the able guidance of renowned scholars in the respective areas. The mutt was providing free accommodation and free food for these students till they complete their education.

Over a period of time, the pontiffs of mutt thought of having a wider vision for providing quality education not only to a specific community on Indian philosophy but also providing so called modern education for all irrespective of caste creed or community. His Holiness Vishwendra Theertha Swamiji took first step to provide quality education to the people of India by establishing a residential school at Innanje a small village near Udupi. This school was started in pre-independence days itself when it was hard for getting permission to start an educational institute by British Government. The vision of Swamiji was to provide quality education to the financially backward people of rural part of the country. This institution was named as Shri Vishnumoorthy Hayavadana Swami Higher Primary School and was established in the year 1943. Since then mutt never turned back. The successor of HH Vishwendra Theertha Swamiji, His Holiness Vishwottama Theertha Swamiji of Sode Vadiraja Mutt also continued his efforts in realizing the dream his Guruji into reality. Presently the pontiff of Shri Sode Vadiraja mutt, His Holiness Viswavallabha Theertha Swamiji initiated a trust called “Shri Sode Vadiraja Mutt Education Trust” in the year 2009 and today all the educational institutions managed by Shri Sode Vadiraja Mutt are being administered by this trust.

On 04 June 1943, HH Shri Vishwendra Theertha Swamiji established Shri Vishnumoorthi Hayavadana High School as a residential school with the permission from Madras Government. Out of eighteen(18) high schools of undivided Dakshina Kannada District, this was the only school which was a residential school with co-education facility. HH Swamiji started this school with the help of few devotees of Shri Sode Vadiraja Mutt in about 14 acres of land in a place Innanje a small village near Udupi. Due to the popularity of this school, students from various parts of Karnataka used to come and pursue their education. The unique feature of this school is that, since inception, mid-day meals is being provided to the students at highly subsidized rates. For financially backward students even these charges were waived off.

During the tenure of His Holiness Vishwottama Theertha Swamiji, the school developed in multi-dimensions. In the year 1982 thisVishwottama Theertha school was upgraded to Pre University college with Commerce and Arts courses.  HH Vishwottama Theertha Swamiji realized that providing quality education in English medium is the need of the hour to train students of rural parts to face the global challenges. Accordingly HH Swamiji initiated SVH English medium High school at Innanje in the year 2005. In 2006, Science course is also introduced in SVH Pre University College.Innanje 3
