Our Guru

Shivaraja Yogi Thycaud Ayya Swamy Thiruvadikal

First and Great Social reformer of Kerala     (1814-1909)

Ayya had disciples from all castes ( Christians, Muslims, both upper and lower cast Hindus-Brahmins, Ezhavas, Kaniyan, Pulayas etc) from all levels of society, from hut to palace and both men and women and brahmacharins and family men. No wonder his doctrine was Inthe ulakathile ore oru jathy than, ore oru matham than, ore oru kadavul than. Sreenarayana Guru translated this doctrine to Malayalam (Oru jathy, oru matham, oru daivam). Ayya not only preached the slogan but also practiced it. Remember only an upper caste Hindu could make such a slogan and not a lower cast at that time. Ayya had to suffer the consequences. Upper class Hindus called Ayya Parayan/ Pandipparayan etc. Ayyas son Lokanatha Panicker has to approach the court to establish that his father belongs to upper caste Vellala
