Brahmo Somaj

Brahmo Somaj (Church of the One God), a reformed Brahmin sect, originated in 1818 by Rammohun Roy, a wealthy and educated Hindoo, who was sent to England on a mission from the King of Delhi. It was stimulated more especially by Baboo Keshub Chunder Sen, who visited England in 1870, and died in 1884. It has had numerous branches, but there have been many secessions from it, and its actual members are not very numerous. It is an attempt at a reformed Hindoo Church, on the basis of pure Monotheism, and has some affinity with English Unitarianism.
