In the lineage of this great philosophy, the seventh descendant of Mahadasoha Peetha, Poojya Doddappa Appa came as a saviour for the people of this backward region, which was suffering the undue double yoke of the Nizam of Hyderabad and the Britishers. It was Doddappa Appa's firm belief that no creature should be a victim of slavery because he perceived that spirit resides in all creatures. This spiritual attitude and outlook of Poojya Doddappa Appa paved the way for the freedom movement. Back in 1918 when the First World War was still going on and when Osmania University was established in the Nizam's State, Poojya Doddappa Appa established Sharanabasaveshwar Public Library in Gulbarga region to create awareness and awaken the people of this region.
Poojya Dr. Sharnbaswappa Appa, 8th Mahadasoha Peethadhipati has been emphasizing the need of providing benefits of modern high technology to the students in particular and people in general of this backward region of the state and ventured in introducing such courses of modern day requirements in the schools, colleges run by the Sangha under the benign blessings and guiding genius of Pooja Dr. Sharnabswappa Appa, the Sangha blossomed into a huge educational complex with fifteen colleges, three high schools, three primary schools and Sharanabasaveshwar Public School, and independent Printing Press, Doddappa Appa IAS Training Institute, Granthavishwa Vidyanilaya and Anubhava Mantappa which arranges series of lectures on art, literature and culture.
