Example text

But what is this light of the soul? Look into your inner self, with the utmost attention of a mind abstracted from outward objects, and you will realise what the light of the soul is. When the sun is set, when the moon is not visible in the sky, when the fire is extinguished, what is the light that remains? It is only the light of the soul that is then visible. Realise this truth, even at this very moment… DEVENDRANĀTH TAGORE 23 How ignorant is he who seeks Him in the light that illumines the external world.

From his early youth to the end of his life he determined his own course of action and took his own decisions.

Educated at the Hindu College he took a great interest in Western philosophy and established the Sangut Sabha, a goodwill fraternity for the discussion of contemporary issues. He was attracted to the Brahmo Samāj from his reading of a tract relating to the society and in 1859, as a result of the personal interest taken in him by Devendranāth Tagore, he became joint secretary of the Samāj. His enthusiasm to propagate the message of the society led him to found the Indian Mirror and the Dharmatattva, two new journals of religion and philosophy, to undertake a lecture tour through Bombay, Poona and Madras, and to preach sermons, write tracts and establish schools.
