Brahmo Samaj in the house

As a young man, especially after the passing away of his father, Revati Mohan became enthusiastic about Brahmoism, the new reformist movement in religion initiated by Ram Mohan Roy and Dwarkanath Tagore in Calcutta. Later, he would frequently travel to areas near Dhaka to preach the Brahmo religion. After he moved to Revati Bhaban in 1900, regular meetings with the followers of Brahmoism were held every Wednesday in the house itself. Preachers from Kolkata would visit the house and sit for discussions.
