By Aravind Janardhanan
Dear All Chevakars
I am starting a new FB series in our group from tomorrow onwards. I will post one or two inspiring matter every week, great teachings of Gurudevan that will remind us his greatness. Aim is to make each one of feel dignified by the very basic fact “being a Ezhava/Thiya”
The title of the series will be -
The Pride that is “Ezhava/Thiyya”
We, Ezhava/Thiyya are not inferior to anyone; rather we are one step ahead of others because we are self made. I underline this word “WE ARE SELF MADE” Tell me, who else other than Sree Narayana Guru have help us in molding our life so far. The tribute for whatever we have made and will make in our life goes to our Gurudevan and his teachings. How many of us take pride in and understand how great the teachings of our Gurudevan are? Have you ever tried to assimilate what exactly our Gurudevan said about many things in his life? Gurudevan once said ““പലമതസാരവുമേകം” means “the meaning of all religion is same” in other words, my religion, your religion, their religion all one and same. There are many Gurus and Saints who came before Guru but all talked mostly about greatness of their religion but Gurudevan said “wait brothers, it is not only my religion but your religion is also great because meaning of all religion is same” What a great thought man! Doesn’t that sound great and make you feel virtuous. See the state of the world today. People kill each other in the name of God. Yes, they believe that they kill for God, to please his God. People kill each other for Religion, in the name of religion and for the God of their religion. People say to each other that “Your religion is wrong, mine is right” They say that my god is perfect yours is not. Have you ever told anyone that our religion is the only religion that is great and our god is the only god that is perfect? Never say that, you can’t say that because you are the one who follow the teachings of our great Gurudevan ““പലമതസാരവുമേകം” means “the meaning of all religion is same” “പലമതസാരവുമേകം” this is the only attitude that will lead this world to compassion and brotherhood. Can you identify one principle that is better than ““പലമതസാരവുമേകം” which can keep the world beautiful and kind? The message of compassion towards other religion was the greatest message of Gurudevan. This message is going to be the base and will lay the foundation for universal brotherhood and love in this world in the years to come. Now tell me are you inferior to anyone, you belongs to the doctrine of Gurudevan that makes you the best soul in the world. SO FEEL PROUD FOR BEING PART OF THE GREATEST DOCTRINE IN THE WORLD, THE DOCTRINE OF ““പലമതസാരവുമേകം” means “the meaning of all religion is same” - GURUSHARANAM
