Narayana Guru taught that humanity was the biggest religion, Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala has said. He was inaugurating the pilgrim meet as part of the 86th Sivagiri pilgrimage here on Monday.

“Guru never stood for a specific caste or religion. He exhorted everyone to get proper education. He taught us how to live one’s life. Guru gained followers across the world for these reasons,” he said.

SNDP Yogam general secretary Vellappally Natesan, who delivered the keynote address, said brotherhood beyond all borders was Guru’s greatest message.

“The Sivagiri pilgrimage has a clear aim and a strong message. Knowledge is the gift that the devotees get in Sivagiri. Anyone can come in here, irrespective of whether they are a believer or non-believer or their caste or religion,” he said.
