SNDP Yogam

Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam (SNDP Yogam) is an organisation formed to propagate and promote Dharma of Sree Narayana Guru. Dr. P. Palpu, a devotee of Sree Narayana Guru, reformed the vaoottu yogam to SNDP Yogam as directed by Sree Narayan Guru. The organization was registered on 15th May, 1903 under Travancore Regulation 1 of 1063 (Indian Company Act IV 1882). Sree Narayana Guru was the Patron and life time President of the Yogam. Mahakavi Sri. Kumaranasan was the first General Secretary.

The caste Hindus or Savarnas used the weapens ‘untouchability and unapproachability’ and kept the Avarnas away from the society. The Yogam engaged itself in the laudable efforts of eradicating untouchability and voicing the fundamental human rights of the Avarnas. Under the leadership of Dr. Palpu, Kumaran Asan, T. K. Madhavan, C.V. Kunjuraman, Moolur Padmanabha Panickar and others, several drastic changes were brought about in the social structure and texture of the Kerala community. The role that Narayana Guru played was only of a catalyst and not as a fighter in the front lines. His high dignity and sense of oneness with mankind did not allow him to protest against any particular person or community. He believed that there is only one caste for man and that is humanity.
