ശ്രീനാരായണഗുരു- ജീവിതരേഖ

1856ല്‍ ചിങ്ങമാസത്തിലെ ചതയംനാളില്‍ തിരുവനന്തപുരത്ത് ചെന്പഴന്തിയില്‍ മാടനാശാന്‍റെയും കുട്ടിയമ്മയുടെയും മകനായി നാരായണഗുരു ജനിച്ചു.

നാണുവെന്നായിരുന്നു അദ്ദേഹത്തിനു അച്ഛനമ്മമാര്‍ നല്‍കിയ പേര്.

1860ല്‍, വിദ്യാരംഭംകുറിച്ച നാണു ചെന്പഴന്തിപിള്ളയില്‍ നിന്ന് എഴുത്തും വായനയും അഭ്യസിച്ചു.

പത്താം വയസ്സുവരെ സ്കൂളില്‍ ചേര്‍ന്നു പഠിച്ചശേഷം കായംകുളത്ത് കുമ്മണിള്ളിയില്‍ രാമന്‍പിള്ളയാശാന്‍റെയടുത്ത് ചേര്‍ന്നു.

സംസ്കൃതം, വേദാന്തം, മഹാഭരതം രാമായണം തുടങ്ങിയവയില്‍ അവഗാഹം നേടി.

1881ല്‍ നാണുഏകാധ്യാപക വിദ്യാലയം സ്ഥാപിച്ചു. അതോടെ നാണു ആശാന്‍ എന്നറിയപ്പെടാന്‍ തുടങ്ങി.

മാതാപിതാക്കളുടെ നിര്‍ബന്ധപ്രകാരം 1882ല്‍ വിവാഹം കഴിച്ചു.

എന്നാല്‍ കുടുംബ ജീവിതത്തിനു നില്ക്കാതെ അദ്ദേഹം സന്യാസ ജീവിതത്തിനായി ഇറങ്ങിപ്പുറപ്പെട്ടു.

1884ല്‍ മരുത്വാമലയിലെ പിള്ളത്തടം എന്ന ഗുഹയില്‍ തപസ്സനുഷ്ഠിക്കാന്‍ തുടങ്ങി.

Back to varkala

He arrived at Varkala. For some time, the Guru seemed quite well. The radiant glow on his features had never disappeared.

He regained a stage in which he took little walks on his own and, though highly emaciated, was still the same alert, radiant, and kind Guru.

The 73rd birthday was celebrated by a select group of ...

Guru Moves to shivagiri Mutt

Narayana Guru moved to Varkala and chose for his residence a neglected hill at the side of the canal.
