Cultural and Spiritual Centres – JSS Spiritual Mission (USA)
The JSS Spiritual Mission, in association with like-minded organisations, has made concerted efforts to spread India’s rich socio-cultural and spiritual heritage to all corners of the world. The Mission has engaged in activities which centre on religious discourses, the practice of yoga and the dissemination of spiritual knowledge through publication of books/ preparation of cassettes and CDs. The ancient values are made accessible to everyone, in this way.
The Mission has been established under 501c3 status (the portion of the US Internal Revenue Code that allows for federal tax exemption of non-profit organizations). It aims to serve the society by facilitating the citizens to imbibe everlasting values that have come through our traditions. These will cut across the boundaries of caste, creed, community, race, etc. and serve everyone who aspires to a safe and peaceful life.
The establishment of the JSS Spiritual Mission is the fulfilment of a long-cherished dream of His Holiness Sri Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji, who visited the United States in 1986. Enthused by the desire of the JSS alumni, their families and the devotees of JSS institutions, the JSS Spiritual Mission was established in 1999, by His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji, the present pontiff.
