Autobiography of Maharshi Devendranath
The phrase Brahmo Samaj literally means the society of the worshippers of the One True God. Brahmo means one who worships Brahma, the Supreme Spirit of the universe and Samaj means a community of men. The Brahmo Samaj, therefore represents a body of men who want to establish the worship of the Supreme Being in spirit as opposed to the prevailing idolatry of the land. The movement was started by Raja Rammohun Roy and his friends by opening a place for public worship on the Chitpore Road in Calcutta, and was duly and publicly inaugurated in January 1830 by the consecration of the first house of prayer, now known as the Adi Brahmo Samaj.

There are not many active Brahmo Samajes in India now - the main activities are centred around Bengal in the East, Mumbai in West, Kakinada in Andhra and New Delhi in the North. As per a thronging congregation - Kolkata tops the list with Mumbai a close second.
