Debendranath Tagore was a Hindu philosopher and religious reformer, active in the Brahmo Samaj("Society of Brahman," also translated as "Society of God"), which aimed to reform the Hindu religion and way of life. He was the founder in 1848 of the Brahmo religion, which today is synonymous with Brahmoism. His father was the industrialist Dwarkanath Tagore. Debendranath was a deeply religious man. His movement, the Brahmo Samaj, was formed in 1843 by merging his Tattwabodhini Sabha with the Brahmo Sabha, ten years after the death of Raja Ram Mohan Roy, founder of the Brahmo Sabha. The Brahmo Sabha had fallen away from its original aims and practices, as stated in its Trust deed of Brahmo Sabha. He was born on 15 May 1817 in Calcutta, Bengal, Bengal Presidency.
