Sree Narayana Foundation

Postby gopu » Sat Jun 27, 2009 10:28 pm

The Sree Narayana Foundation, designed to function as a parallel organisation to the SNDP Yogam, was constituted here on Sunday. Announcing the formation of the new organisation at a press conference, SNDP Yogam former Devaswom secretary M B Sreekumar, former councillor V K Ashokan, Yogam Chennai unit president Gokulam Gopalan and SNDP board member T K Rajan said that Gokulam Gopalan and M B Sreekumar had been appointed the chairman and general secretary respectively of the new organisation.


They said that the new organisation was neither a parallel organisation to the SNDP Yogam nor a rebel organisation.

They said that the new body was constituted to support those who believe and propagate the views and teachings of Sree Narayana Guru.

Sreekumar said that he was not planning to contest the next election to the Yogam.

They also said that the organisation would oppose the dominance of the family of SNDP Yogam general secretary Vellappally Natesan over the Yogam and the organisations run by it.

They said that the new organisation would fight for change in the style of functioning of the Yogam and Vellappally could continue as the general secretary if a new style of functioning is adopted.

They said that if found necessary, they would work for appointing a new leadership in the organisation. They alleged that though the Yogam, under the leadership of Vellappally Natesan, had helped streamline its activities, the benefits had not reached the common members. They alleged that it was like the landlord cornering the entire benefit generated in the field, leaving those who worked for bringing up the crop high and dry.

Meanwhile, despite opposition from the Yogam management, a reception was accorded to Gokulam Gopalan on the occasion of his nomination to the managing committee of the Guruvayur Devaswom on Sunday. The reception was organised by the Mulamkunnathukavu branch of the SNDP Yogam.

It may be recalled that former Yogam councillor Ashokan at a press conference on last Friday alleged that general secretary Vellappally Netasan was running the SNDP Yogam as a family-managed organisation. He had said that there was a lot of resentment among members of the Yogam against his undemocratic style of functioning and the move to pass on the control of various institutions under the Yogam to his son Thushar Vellappally. He said that the decision by the Mulamkunnathukavu branch of the Yogam to accord a reception to Chennai union president Gokulam Gopalan on the occasion of his selection to the managing committee of the Guruvayur Devaswon, on June 14 has prompted Vellappally to disband the branch on Saturday.

He said that despite the decision to disband the branch the reception would be held as per schedule. He said that efforts to organise the members opposing Vellappally was underway to fight against the undemocratic style in which the organisation had been run by the general secretary.

Nārāyaṇa is a name sometimes used for the Hindu \ god Viṣṇu . The Viṣṇ and by implication with the idea of Brahman \ as the creator of the universe, is “the supreme Nārāyana … the lord of all … without a beginning,” who is the “source of all … the beginning and the end of the universe.” Viṣṇu is called Nārāyaṇa because the waters are called Nārā and the waters are the offspring of the Man , who is presumably the primal male Puruṣa who joined with Prakṛti , or “Nature”, became the universe, and made the waters his dwelling place. Viṣṇu is known as the “son of the Waters” or the “son of Man” because in the form of his avatar the Boar , his body composed of the Vedas , he raised the Earth with his great horn, rescuing her from the demonic chaotic waters and re-creating the world that had been destroyed as the cosmic sacrifice at the end of the previous creation. During the time between the worlds, Viṣṇu as Nārāyaṇa sleeps on the sacrificial remnants of the old world that floats on the waters inthe form of the serpent Ananata or Śeṣa—the “infinite” . Viṣṇu's eventual awakening is a symbol of the spiritual awakening that comes to the one who meditates sufficiently on Viṣṇu—Nārāyaṇa .
