Shree Narayana Guru Dharma Paripalana

Shree Narayana Guru Dharma Paripalana (SNDP) is a socio-religious movement that was founded by Shree Narayana Guru in Kerala, India in the late 19th century. The movement sought to challenge the caste system and promote social equality and justice in Indian society.

Shree Narayana Guru was a social reformer, philosopher, and spiritual leader who was deeply critical of the caste system and the discrimination that it engendered. He advocated for the idea of one God, one caste, and one religion for all people, and believed that the practice of untouchability had no place in a just and egalitarian society.

Under his leadership, the SNDP movement worked to promote education and social reform among the lower castes in Kerala, particularly the Ezhava community. The movement also sought to promote unity and solidarity among different castes and religions, and to promote the idea of social harmony and peaceful coexistence.

The SNDP movement played an important role in the struggle for social and political rights in Kerala and in the wider Indian context. Its leaders and members were active in the Indian independence movement, and played a key role in the efforts to promote social justice and equality in post-independence India.

Today, the SNDP movement continues to exist as a social and cultural organization, working to promote the values of social justice, equality, and education. The organization has been instrumental in the fight against discrimination and social inequalities in Kerala, and remains an important force for social reform and progress in the region.
