Ratan Tata, former Chairman of Tata Group, inaugurated the ‘Swagata Gopura’ of the Sri Puttige Vidyapeetha at the premises of the Moola Puttige Math here on Monday.

The Puttige Vidyapeetha imparts education in holy Hindu texts, priestly duties, astrology and ‘agama’ for six years after the students complete SSLC. The students can also pursue higher studies in Hindu texts here. The vidyapeetha is located in picturesque surroundings with the river Swarna flowing close to the math with the hills in the background.

Mr. Tata was received at the Vidyapeetha in a traditional manner with a royal umbrella. He unveiled a plaque to mark the inauguration of the ‘Swagata Gopura’. Sugunendra Tirtha Swami of Puttige Math, Ramdas M. Pai, Chancellor of Manipal University and G.K. Prabhu, Registrar of the University, were present on the occasion.

The seer took Mr. Tata around the premises of the Puttige Vidyapeetha. He showed Mr. Tata the palm leaf manuscripts which were being preserved at the Vadiraja Research Foundation at the math’s premises.

Later addressing the gathering of students, Mr. Tata said that he had met the Puttige seer by chance at the New York airport.

Thus he had come in touch with the seer. He was pleased to visit the Vidyapeetha. “It is wonderful to be here with you in your institution. I am deeply touched by your warmth and blessings,”he said.

The Puttige seer said that he planned to make Puttige village an educational centre. He wanted to establish a university here.

He was also giving priority to starting a residential school here. “We want to give modern education to the students but we would teach them about ancient values,”he said.
