Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru about Sree Narayana Guru

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru -(1958) said:” I feel very happy to have come to a place where a great man lived and gave his message to the people. Where great men lived, that place becomes a holly ground something like a temple, because of their thoughts and prayers that lie enshrined there. Sree Narayana Guru lived here and from here radiated his message – the message of no caste, no division and he wanted to build up a casteless and classless society. That message is still very much needed in these days. In order to get a casteless, classless 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 the heart and mind, all other changes are likely to be superficial. I am most happy to have come to this place, to pay my tribute of this great man who lived here and spread his message from here.”
