Rammohun Roy

New Age Prophet~II

Historically, Rammohun discovered that the ancient Vedic period was a golden era but the subsequent distortions led to idolatry, multiplicity of divinity, child marriage, and prohibition of widow remarriage, sati, caste system and priesthood. He argued very convincingly that these widespread contemporary practices did not have roots in the Vedas and Upanishads and the task, therefore, was to restore the original tradition.

Netaji and Swamiji

Netaji was a patriot and his patriotism was embedded in his spiritual awareness which he achieved by dint of his in-depth study of Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda, who taught him how to love and worship the country as Divine Mother, offering everything to Her lotus feet for his own liberation as well as for the liberation of his entire race. He saw in Swamiji a path finder "as the spiritual father of the modern nationalist movement", and followed him to become a spiritual patriot.
