RAMAKRISHNA MISSION TEMPLES

There was "a successful renaissance and reorientation of the Hindu view of life and a guarantee that India's future would be remolded on the basis of a synthesis of the east and the west. However much some of the leaders wished to overcome social and other evils at the earliest, they had to come to the conclusion that they would not make much headway unless they went to the root and furnished a reoriented religious and spiritual back ground.

The Brahmo Samaj started in Calcutta in 1828. In Bombay, prominent members of the Paramahansa Sabha, which was working for abolition of caste barriers, came to the same conclusion and started Prarthana Samaj on the model of Brahmo Samaj in Calcutta. Dr. Bhandarkar, an ardent social reformer and deep scholar of Sanskrit, advocated the same view. He said, if social reform was to be permanent and beneficial to Hindu society, it ought to be based on religious reform."**

English education in Bengal had received an enthusiastic beginning through the nucleus of a band of selfless missionaries of Serampore from 1800. Other missionaries who pioneered education, printing, medical relief and social services in different parts of the country followed the illustrious Carey, Marshman and Ward. The beginnings of the Brahmo Samaj in the hands of Raja Ram Mohan Roy and his followers were from 1815 and by 1830 the Brahmo Samaj was well established and a Trust Deed was drawn up indicating the objectives.
