Raja Ram Mohun Roy

(b. May 22, 1772 – d. Sep 27, 1833)

Raja Ram Mohan Roy

(Swami Vivekananda) “pointed out three things as the dominant notes of (Ram Mohun Roy) message: his acceptance of the Vedanta, his preaching of patriotism, and the love that embraced the Mussulman equally with the Hindu.

“In all these things, he (Vivekananda) claimed himself to have taken up the task that the breadth and foresight of Ram Mohun Roy had mapped out.”
