Birth and Childhood
In the days of Narayana Guru the most vital information everyone wanted to know of another person was his caste. This may look ridiculous to the present generation, but no one thought so in those days. Everybody wanted to know caste and everyone revealed his caste also as a matter of course.
Caste in Kerala
A child of nature
Proper formation in Sanskrit and Vedanda
The World re-absorbed in the real,
The sweet melody of the eternal world
dissolved away in silence,
The effulgence of the non-dual lamp is filled all around.
The curtain of Maya is raised,
Revealing the celestial stage
Where Krishna of radiant blue hue,
Glorious in his resplendent halo
And adorned with the Koustabha Jeweldances in divine festivity.
The great search
Finding a soul mate
By river water all at once, such would be the rising symphony
Falling into the ears, to open then the eye, do therefore
Daily become the best of sages, endowed with self-control
Like the dawn all together of ten thousand solar orbs
Wisdom's function comes: such verily is that which
Tears asunder this wisdom-hiding, transient Maya-darkness here
And as the primal Sun prevails.
Of caste or race
Or hatred of rival faith,
We all live here
Such, know this place to be!

Affinity with the Tamil culture
The Guru at Aruvipuram
Guru and the S.N.D.P. Yogam
Shifting his headquarters to Varkala
Narayana Guru and temples
What is unreal indeed seems as being real.
The Sivalinga is stone itself
Not a second made by the mason
