Excerpt from Modern Religious Movements in India

Towards the close of 1912 Dr. W. Douglas Mackenzie, President of Hartford Theological Seminary, Hartford, Conn., invited me to deliver, as Lamson Lecturer for 1913, a course of eight lectures on Modern Religious Movements in India. The subject was extremely attractive. It was clear that to bring these many movements together, arrange them in related groups, and set them forth as varying expressions of a great religious upheaval would be a far more illuminating piece of work than the description of them as units ever could be. But the difficulties involved in the proposed investigation were so great that it was only after much inward questioning as to whether I ought to dare the task that I decided to attempt it.

The first difficulty of the subject lies in the fact that the majority of these numerous and very varied movements, scattered over every part of India, have never been described before. In the case of a few of the more note worthy, excellent monographs do exist. The following books and pamphlets proved of signal service in my investigation:

Sastri, History of the Brahma Samāj (including the Prārthana Samaj); Griswold, art. Ārya Samāj in Ere.; Griswold, The Chet Rami Sect; Griswold, Mirza Ghulām Ahmad, the Mehdi Messiah of Qadian; Griswold, The Rādhdā Swāmī Sect; Griswold, Pandit Agnihotri and the Deva Samāj; Chirol, Indian Unrest.
