Of All the Biographies of His Holinees Sree Narayana Guru so far written , this
book by Shri. Murkkoth Kumaran stand out as the foremost . The distinctive uniquenss
of this book is that, this is a report of the boundless compassion that emanated
from the Guru and an account of the range and depth of this matchless knowledge.
Among His Holinees Sree Narayana Guru's fovourite discilples, this intellectual
genius occupiss the highest position. He was born on 9th June 1874 at Thalassery
as the son of Shri. Mukkoth Ramunni and Smt. Parappurath Kunchirutha, For nearly
four decades, he had actively played the roles of a revered teacher .a journalist,
a litterateur and a popular social leader .He was the Editer of periodicals
like Kerala Sanchari Dharmam Gajakessari etc Mahakavi Ulloor, the Great poet
of Malayalam, has commented “ Murkkoth’ s prose flows like a melodious symphony.”
Murkkoth Kumaran is the author of a number of book but “The Biography of Sree
Narayana Guru” is the one witch glows perennial splendour. He has translated
the Guru ‘Darsanamala' into simple Malayalam verse which is another remarkable
achievement. He had played had played the main role in the construction and
consecration of Thalassery Jagannatha Tample and the installation of the Guru;

We are inspired to write a Biography of Sree Narayana Guru by our love, respect
and devotion to him, and our Fire in the Success of all the religious and social
reformation programmers he had undertaken for the betterment of our society.
The aim of this book is not simple to publicize all the incidents in the great
man’s life thought a chronological account. Our objective is to expose the magnificent
personality of the Guru, and explain in the goals he had set in his life and
how the people could benefit these. The chapters in the book also arranged to
suit that objective, we don’t believe that we have succeeded completely. After
reading this book, if anyone develop the desire to Know more about his noble
character and the means and methods he employed, we are gratified.
Among the people of Kerala , there exists a difference in opinion about how
far his advice and the method suggested by him for religious and social reformation
have the so called under privileged classes and Hindus in general. We are aware
of that. If there were no such difference in option the changes brought about
by his action would not deserve the title ‘Reformation’.
We believe that Sree Narayana Guru is an incarnation of God whose purpose
was to suggest and show proper means and methods to bring about the restructuring
of Kerala society, which was highly necessary at that time. We Believe that
if you deliberate seriously on his words, life and action you will also come
to the same conclusion.
Swami had once said, “During Buddha’s period violence was rampant. Therefore
he gave prominence to non- violence. During Mohammad Nabi’s time, the need was
to give importance to fraternal feeling. That is why. in the religion founded
by him, brotherhood is important is given importance .What is India need today?
Liberation from conflicts in the name of caste and religion.”
Sree. Narayana Guru has prescribed the best way to secure this liberation.
Some miracles performed by Guru are narrated in this book They are all authentic
report by word of month or letters from those who had actually experienced them.
Even modern scientists have admitted that such miracles not beyond the range
of forces of nature .book like ‘Real Ghost, ‘by a great man under the name ‘Cheiro
narrate a number of such stories of miracles. If you will understand that such
experiences are not unreal. We need not give any explanation for reporting actual
exporting actual experiences by number of people .
We express our since thanks to all those who have helped us in writing this
book. We had to read a number of book for learning about The Science of ‘Yoga
‘Among these ‘Kundalini Shakti ‘by Sir John Woodroffe, ‘ The Wonderful Kundalini’
and The Translation of Shadchakra Nirupanam’ by Dr. Vasantha and Dr. V.G Rele,
‘Rajayoga by Swami Vivekananda and several book by Dr. Annie Besant deserve
Comparing the Solemnity and the grandeur of the topic with the incompetence
of the author, we humbly bring out his book with anxiety and apprehension, Among
the millions of people in Kerela if a few are benefitted by this book, we rest
assured that our hard work is rewarded properly,
