The poet and social reformer Sree Narayana Guru Swami (1856 to 1924) is considered a great saint due to his preaching of “one caste, one religion and one God for humanity”. His 159th birthday was celebrated yesterday (August 22nd 2013), during the Malayalam month of Chingam on the Chadayam star. During Chadayam day various programmes are arranged throughout Kerala. Community organize processions, floral tributes, feeding for the poor and communal prayers and feasts to mark Jayanthi celebrations. Devotees of Sree Narayna wear yellow clothes, which was the colour of  Sree Buddha’s garments.
