Overview

Narayana Guru’s major contribution to world culture comes from the example of his personal life and his philosophical and mystical writings in Malayalam, Tamit and Sanskrit. Both the cream of the ancient Dravidian culture preserved by the Tamil language and the Upanishadic wisdom enshrined by the Sanskrit language found their confluence in the writings of Narayana Guru. His mystical hymns are both inspiring and elevating. Without watering down the emotional fervor of devotion, he used these poems as a means to restate his philosophy of unitive understanding. Today, scholars all over the world are finding in his writings new avenues to approach the eternal riddles of life. The universal and thoroughgoing ethical norms enunciated by him are well suited to be used as the normative basis for the world order of a unified human family. His insight into psychology opens up the mysterious depths of the human mind and spirit, and if it is properly pursued, we can discover in its light the meaning and purpose of our life in the here and now, and the secret of establishing harmonious relationships with the rest of the world. -Guru Nitya Chaitanya Yati
