Tribute of Great Personalities to the Guru

  • " “Jnanin of action”, a grand religious intellectual, who had a keen living sense of the people and of social necessities. He has contributed greatly to the elevation of the oppressed classes in South India and his work has been associated at certain time with that of Gandhi”. "

    --Romain Rolland the French Philosopher--
  • " In order to get a casteless- society, what are we to do? Many things have to be done. But the general approach which I presume is Sree Narayana Guru’s approach - the approach through the mind and heart and not of a compulsion and coercion .Where there is not this turning of heart and mind, all other things are likely to be superficial. "

    --Jawaharlal Nehru -April 29, 1958 --
  • " I feel it as the greatest privilege in my life to have visited the beautiful state of Travancore and to have a darshan of venerable sage Sree Narayana Guru. I had the fortune to stay one day in his holy Ashramam. Her Excellency the Regent empress also spoke to me about the greatness of Guru Swamy. I fervently hope that you would enforce his lofty ideals.
