Pandit. Jawaharlal Nehru about Guru
" I feel very happy to have come to a place where a great man lived and gave his message to the people. Where great men lived that place becomes a holy ground something like a temple because of their thoughts and prayer that lie enshrined there. Sree Narayana Guru lived here and from here radiated his message; the message of no caste no division and he wanted to build up a casteless and classless society. His message is still very much needed in these days. In order to get a casteless, classless society, what are we to do ? Many things have to be done, but the general approach which I presume is Sree Narayana Guru's approach; the approach through the mind and heart and not of a compulsion and coercion. Where there is not this turning of the heart and mind, all other changes are likely to be superficial. I am most happy to have come this place to pay my tribute to this great man who lived here and spread his message from here"
