About the Book:
This volume brings together essays on the new religious reform movements of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. The essays cover the Brahmo Samaj, the Ramakrishna Mission, the Arya Samaj, the Ahmadiya movement, the Theosophical Society and Aurobindo Ghose. The focus is on the remarkable religious and spiritual personalities who inspired new ways of thinking about religion and spirituality; their relationships to social and political change; and their profoundly inward and mystical approach to the religious life.
This volume will be of great interest to scholars of modern India, religious movements and reforms, and cultural history.
