Prophet of a New Hindu Age : The Life and Times of Acharya Pranavananda, Hardback Book

Prophet of a New Hindu Age : The Life and Times of Acharya Pranavananda Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: British in India series

Description

This is the fascinating biography, first published in 1985, of the remarkable Bengali religious leader Swami Pranavananda who lived in the turbulent years of the early twentieth century.

The story of his life has to some extent been eclipsed by the struggle for Indian independence, but his extraordinary personal qualities, his determined asceticism, his high ideals of social service and commitment to Hindu solidarity all serve to set him apart from his contemporaries and entitle him to be better known by political and religious historians of the period.
