Sree Narayana Guru & SNDP Yogam

By installing a rock from the Neyyar River as Sivalinga at Aruvippuram on the Sivaratri day of Kumbha month in 1888 (1063 Aandu), Sree Narayana Guru Devan started a silent revolution in the history of Kerala. It caused a social revolution, which uprooted the old social system of Kerala.

Gradually, Aruvippuram became a pilgrim center. On Vavu (Full moon) day, people began to come there to offer sacrifice. The deciples of the Guru which included the famous poet Kumaran Asan, decided to give food to the pilgrims which led to the creation of ‘Vavoottu Yogam’ (serving food to the people who come as pilgrims).

In 1889, Vavoottu Yogam had been expanded. Thus an organization, ‘Aruvippuram Kshetra Yogam’ had formed.

On Malayalam Era 1078 Dhanu 23, (1903), a special meeting of Aruvippuram Kshetra Yogam was conducted. They decided to change that into a big Yogam for the progress of Ezhavas both in religious and material ways. Thus, on 1078 Edavam 2, (1903, May 15), with Narayana Guru as its President, ‘Aruvippuram Kshetra Yogam’ has been registered as’Aruvippuram Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam’ according to the Indian Companies Act, No.6, 1882.

നീ സത്യം ജ്ഞാനം ആനന്ദം

Article By Sajeev Krishnan (Kerala Kaumudi)   – : ഗുരുദേവന്റെ ജീവിതത്തിലെ അത്ഭുതസംഭവങ്ങളെ കോര്‍ത്തിണക്കിക്കൊണ്ട് ധര്‍മ്മാനന്ദജി എഴുതിയ ഗുരുചരിതത്തിനുളള അവതാരികയില്‍ മംഗളാനന്ദസ്വാമി ഇങ്ങനെ പറയുന്നു: “ഹേതു അറിയാത്തതുകൊണ്ടാണ് അദ്ഭുതങ്ങളുണ്ടാകുന്നത്. പ്രപഞ്ചത്തിലെ ചില സത്യങ്ങള്‍ക്കുമുന്നില്‍ അത്ഭുതംകൂറിനില്‍ക്കുന്ന മനുഷ്യന്‍ ഹിമാലയത്തില്‍ സഞ്ചരിക്കുന്ന ഉറുമ്പിനെപ്പോലെയാണ്. ഉറുമ്പ് ഹിമാലയത്തെ അറിയുന്നുണ്ടെങ്കിലും ലോകത്തെ ഏറ്റവും ഉയര്‍ന്ന കൊടുമുടിയോടുകൂടിയ മഹാപര്‍വതപംക്തിയാണിതെന്ന് മനസ്സിലാക്കാന്‍ ആ പ്രാണിക്ക് കഴിയുന്നുണ്ടാവില്ല.” ഗുരുവിന്റെ ജീവിതത്തില്‍ പറഞ്ഞു പ്രചരിച്ചതും യഥാര്‍ത്ഥത്തില്‍ സംഭവിച്ചതുമായ നിരവധി അത്ഭുതങ്ങളുണ്ട്.

ഒരു പഴമോ ചില പച്ചിലച്ചാറുകളോ നല്‍കി മാരക അസുഖങ്ങള്‍ മാറ്റുന്നു, പിറന്ന ഉടനേ സന്താനങ്ങള്‍ മരിച്ചു പോകുന്നവര്‍ക്ക് ദീര്‍ഘായുസ്വികളായ സന്തതികളുണ്ടാകാന്‍ അനുഗ്രഹിക്കുന്നു, ചാത്തനേറും ബാധോപദ്രവങ്ങളും നീക്കുന്നു …ഇങ്ങനെ എണ്ണിപ്പറഞ്ഞാല്‍ തീരാത്ത കഥകള്‍. ഗുരുവിന്റെ പരഹൃദയജ്ഞാനം വെളിപ്പെടുന്ന നൂറു സംഭവങ്ങള്‍ വേറെയുണ്ട്. പക്ഷേ, അവയെക്കുറിച്ചോര്‍ത്ത് മൂക്കത്ത് വിരല്‍വച്ചു നിന്നാല്‍ മംഗളാനന്ദ സ്വാമി പറഞ്ഞതുപോലെ ഗുരു ഒരു പ്രഹേളികയായും നമ്മള്‍ ഹിമാലയത്തിലെ ഉറുമ്പുകളായും അവശേഷിക്കും.

Kerala modal and Gurudevan

Kerala Modal is a much discussed term not only in India but all over the world. It was because the kerala model of development was really a surprising factror for the western world as with one by eithtyeth percapita income of the america, the kerala achieved the standard of living equal to or more than to the standard of living of the developed countries. The literacy rate, the health facilities, the maternal mortality rate, the child sex ratio, the child mortality rate, old-age care and the care of the destitutes, all have equal standard with the developed nations. one more thing was that the savings from the income was higher in kerala. Now we could think about why the other parts of the india did not achieve this development? As in other parts of the country, similar situations of caste dicriminations,un touchability, backwardness of the communities and other social evils were prevalent in Kerala with ample strength. However, Kerala move forward in the case of development leaving behind other states many miles. 

Gurudevan ignited the boom for development thinking among the keralites irrespective of the caste and religious boundaries as the SNDP yogam was established in 1903 for the upliftment of the ezhavas on these lines many other organizations in other communities started working. Gurus aruvippuram prathishta in 1888 and the subsequent developments really have generated a fertile ground for developmental thoughts.
