Rammohan and his followers used to
attend prayers in the church of a Christian sect. Chanrashekar Dev, a disciple
of Rammohan, and others wondered why they should not have a prayer Hall
of their own. Rammohan approved this idea. They hired a building belonging
to a man called Ram Kamal Basu and opened a Prayer Hall called Brahma
The members used to meet every Saturday.
Vedic hymns and hymns from the Upanishads were chanted by scholars. Religious
discussions were held. Rammohan recited the religious poems
him. Christian and Muslim boys sang songs in English and Persian. Many
Hindus and foreigners used to attend these meetings.
There is only one God. None equals
Him. He has no end. He is present in all living beings this was the
faith of the Brahmas. This was the message of Rammohan. The Brahma Samaj
did not recognize differences of caste, creed, race or nationality. It
emphasized the idea of universal brotherhood.
