VAAGBHATANANDA - KERALA RENAISSANCE


 
Vagbhatananda 

Vagbhatananda Gurudeva (1885-1939) was a social reformer who played a crucial role in the social reform movement in modern Kerala. His magnetic personality and oratorical skill engrossed towards him a large number of supporters. 

He founded the Atmavidya Sangham, a group of professionals and intellectuals who had a more secular approach to reform. 
He condemned caste barriers and idol worship and urged his followers to reject such practices. Being a vigorous campaigner against addiction to liquor, his teachings helped to strengthen the base of the nationalist movement mainly in north Kerala.
