Romain Rolland about Guru

Romain Rolland, famous French Philosopher, said: “Glasenapp does not say anything regarding the new religious manifestations in south India which are not negligible: such for example is the great Guru, Sree Narayana, whose beneficent spiritual activity has been exercising its influence during the past forty years in the state of Travancore on nearly two millions of his followers…His teaching, permeated with the philosophy of Sankara, shows evidence of a striking difference of temperament compared with the mysticism of Bengal, of which the effusions of love(bhakti) inspire in him a certain mistrust. He was, one might say, a 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 times with that of Gandhi.”
