Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara tried to acquire knowledge by many means and made himself a cellar of knowledge at that time. Possessed of such knowledge, as a humble servant of God, he was zealous to share with the people what he had acquired. One of the clearest expressions of love and fellow feeling is the desire to share one’s knowledge or possession with those whom one loves. He realized that the community would even remain downtrodden if they did not move with the times and so he decided that the religious congregation should concentrate on ministry of education. Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara has foreseen that to move with the time one needs education. He also realized that education is the means for overall development both mentally and spiritually. So in the year 1846 Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara showed the courage and established a Sanskrit school attached to the monastery at Mannanam and admitted not only the Catholics but was opened to all irrespective of caste and creed. Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara started a new era of development by kindling the light of knowledge for all. For the students he arranged the provision to supply study materials, cloths, and mid-day meals.
