The Trust functions under the able and astute guidance of the Dharmadhikari,
Dr M R Jayaram, son of Sri M S Ramaiah and Chairman of the Ramaiah Group.

In 1980, the management of the Mutt was taken over by Sri M S Ramaiah, Dharmadhikari of the Sri Yogi Nareyana Mutt, and Founder-Chairman of the renown Ramaiah Group. The construction of the guest accommodation as well as various marriage halls (kalyana mantapas), alaya bhavana (the stately structure built to mark the Samadhi of Thataiya) and the majestic temple with its numerous pillars have all been credited to his untiring efforts. He also undertook the streamlining of several procedures at the Mutt, and the herculean task of

translating Thataiya’s works into other languages to make it widely accessible.

The remarkable work done by Sri M S Ramaiah helped pave the way for the work being undertaken by the Trust today.

Today, the Trust functions under the able and astute guidance of the Dharmadhikari, Dr M R Jayaram, son of Sri M S Ramaiah and Chairman of the Ramaiah Group.

Dr Jayaram too has left no stone unturned in his bid to keep alive the teachings of Thataiya.

He has overseen the renovation and restoration of numerous temples in and around Kaiwara that were of import to Thataiya. In addition to translating the works of Thataiya, Dr Jayaram has also released audio cassettes of his poems or keerthanas, sung by reputed singers like M Balamuralikrishna and Nedunuri Krishnamurthy.
