Sri Narayana Guru
1856 1928

Sri Narayana Guru was a rare combination of saint and social reformer.
In one of his messages to his disciples, Sri Narayana Guru said:
Inform the people about the general principles of religion and propagate faith in God.
Strive among the people to achieve external
and internal cleanliness or the threefold cleanliness (of thought, word and deed).
Speak to the people about non-violence, love and unity and make them
observe these principles.
Select and train suitable young men and
send out the best and willing among them as monks to work for the good of others.
This message sums up Sri Narayana Guru's life and work.

SreenarayanaGuru's famous sayings are; 1. One in Kind, One in Faith, One in God is Human (One Caste, One Religion, One God for Human) 2. Whichever the Religion if it suffices, If it makes a better human. 3. Knowledge is Power. 4. Gain Freedom through Education. 5. Gain strength through Organisation. etc

Sri Narayana Guru led the movement against caste oppression in Kerala. In 1903 he founded the Sri Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam(SNDP) to carry on the work of social reform, the awakening of oppressed castes and to promote among the people fraternity without distinctions of caste and religion.
Abhilash A.S.
This image of sree Narayana Guru shown here is a rare one. I think you should provide more pictures of the great social reformers of India.
padmanabhan
Narayana guru visited Ramana at his hermitage, his comments a rare diamond, like Ramana adorns the hill of Arunachala.. Ramana greeted him in malayalam. In his last days of Guru Narayana, Ramana sent him his attendant kunjuswamy to attend on his needs. The world today is wired, but then India is still steeped in casteism the political vote bank, wish our politicians are taken to the ashram and educated on the high ideals of Narayana Guru.
kritika singh
You have given very little information about Sri Narayana Guru. I think you should provide more information about this reformer.
Rajendra Kamble
Sree Narayana Guru was a great Saint & Social Reformer, who always stood for one caste, one religion, one God for man. Whatever may be the religion of a man, it is enough if he becomes virtuos. Ask not, Say not Think not caste.

Sree Narayana Guru is the role model of my life. He was not a ordinary man, because told us One cast, One Religion, One God.
deepak chandran mankad
He was a man with GOD`S mind.

Early education Sree narayana guru's first teacher was his own father, Madan Asan. He had formal schooling in the village school of Chempazhanthy Pillai. Apart from Malayalam and Tamil he learned by heart, as was the practice in those days, Sidharupa, Balaprabodhana and Amrakosa. He was blessed with a penetrating understanding and a sharp memory from very early childhood. Although there were a few schools in Travancore and Cochin in those days, Nanu's circumstances were such that he had to satisfy himself with what he received from his father, his uncle Krishnan Vaidyar and the village school master.
praveena
Guru was a great Yogi. He got Advaitic realisation through Bhakti, Yogic Sadhana and Knowledge. The specific contribution of Guru to Advaita philosophy and religion is the theory of "One caste, one religion and one God to the humanity".

Sri Narayana Guru was a mystic revolutionary. His commitment to spiritual progress equalled his dedication to material advancement of deprived people. I have tried to show this my study VISION FROM THE MARGIN (2007) For more details contact www.salesiancollege.net

Whoever saw Gurudevan in his lifetime, everybody saw divinity. Mahatma Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore said that they have never seen such a divinely sadhu anywhere in the world. Mahakavi Kumaran Asan saw his god in the Guru. No saint in the world who is equal to Sree Narayana Guru. Guru wrote hundreds of poems in Malayalam, Sanskrit, and Tamil. Most of them are equal to Upanishad. Sri K. Surendran's Novel "GURU" is a very good narration of the life of Sree Narayana Gurudevan.

It is heard that Gurudevan made a lot of jokes which should also be included.

MP PUSHPARAJAN
In spite of so many apraisal and unique message from Gurudev for many decades, why the modern men still turn terrorist, rivalry among various religions. Are we not spreading His message to the people with adequate force and appeal? May Guru reserrect once more to purify the human minds.

Guru gave solutions to all human problems.
Jayakumar
Sree Narayana Guru was a magnifiscent personality from Kerala. The number of books written on him is the highest in Kerala. The number of essays on Guru is also the highest. He was selected unanimously as the greatest malayali in the last century & probably in coming centuries too. He had the amasing ability to link the apparently opposite philosophies.
zia
I wish if there was a translation to malayalam.
Chethan Poojary
Sri Guru is inspiration to my life.

Sidharthan - Kakkathuruthy
The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the most, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. Love, compassion,self-confidence and sacrifice are the human qualities. Lead us from untruth to truth, From ignorance to knowledge From death to immortality.

One caste, one god, one religion and one guru was Sri Narayana Guru.
gopu
Sree Narayana Guru was born under the star 'Chathayam' in the month of 'Chingam' in 1856 AD (1032 of the Malayalam calendar) in the village of Chempazhanthi in Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala as the son of Madan Asan, a farmer, and Kutti Amma. Yet Gurudev reportedly told some of his followers that he was actually born in 1030. When his 60th birth anniversary was being celebrated 1916 he laughingly said "my 60th birthday (sashtabhdhapoorty) was quite a while ago.

You should provide atleast two pages or more of the social reforms in his life.Provide just a little more information and you pass through.
Melethekka Pushparajan
All people of wisdom agreed that the preachings of Sree Narayana Guru are the only way to end fundamentalism and overcasting religious pride and consequential terorism and breach of peace and bondage among human beings.

Gurudevan is still a living ideology from whom we draw inspiration on our daily lives. we find solace and tranquility in his teachings whenever we are confronted with todays puzzle and chaos.
