Poorna Prajna Vidya Peetha, Katriguppe, Bangalore

Sri Sri Pejavara Swamiji was hardly 25 when he took up the challenging task of building the Vidyapeetha at the then remote Kattriguppa in South-West Bangalore in 1956. Elders recall that both the Swamijis hanging Jolige (satchel) on their shoulders went from house to house in the downtown and extensions of old Bangalore to collect donations from generous devotees.With single-minded devotion towards Lord Sri Hari and an unwavering respect for sanctity of human life the Swamijis did a miracle in a short span of two to three decades.Today, as you enter South Bangalore either from Basavanagudi or from Mysore Road towards Kattriguppa, pleasant rhythmic waves of chanting Vedas, Upanishads, Shastras and verses praising the glory of Lord Krishna reaches you and your heart. Over 500 ardent, devoted and intensely enthusiastic students are there to welcome you. The venue is Poornaprajna Vidyapeetha - a humble renaissance of Sanskrit education in the country.Situated at prime place in a 3½ acre plot in the Garden City, Poornaprajna Vidyapeetha stands as a testimony for the tenacious efforts of two noble Sages in providing an university atmosphere for free traditional education. At present the serene Vidyapeetha complex houses spacious Research Center, Sanskrit School and College, Hostel, perhaps the biggestSabhagraha in the city and a temple of Sri Krishna , Sri Madhwa Guru , Sri Vadiraja Theertha and Sri Raghavendra Swami.
