Anirvan

Sri Anirvan was born on July 8, 1896 in the town of Mymensingh. At the age of eleven he knew the Astadhyayi of Panini by heart and daily recited a chapter from the Gita, he joined Assam Bangiya Saraswata Math, Kokilamukh near Jorhat in Assam, at the age of sixteen. Meanwhile, he had appeared for the matriculation examination which earned for him a state scholarship. He went for his college studies to Dhaka and later on to Calcutta. His educational career was brilliant and he always secured record marks. After completing his studies, Sri Anirvan took Sanyasa and became Nirvanananda Saraswati. But a few years later he dropped the ochre robes and changed his name to Anirvan, by which name he became known to the world at large. Between 1930 and 1942, he lived with a friend at Allahabad, Lucknow, Delhi and Ranchi and also established an ashram in Kamakhya near Gauhati in Assam. Later on, he moved to Lohaghat in Almora where Madame Lizelle Reymond met him and stayed with him in her My Life with a Brahmin Family (1958) and to Live Within (1971). In 1953-54, Sri Anirvan moved to Shillong in Assam and finally to Calcutta in 1965. He fell ill in July 1971 and passed away on 31 may, 1978, at the age of 82. His first book was a Bengali translation of Sri Aurbindo’s The life Divine which was published in 2 Vols. During 1948-51. But the centre of his studies was the Vedas on which subject he acquired a rare mastery over the years. His great work, Veda Mimamsa, was published in 3 vols. In 1961, 1965 and 1970. Meanwhile several other works on the Upanishads, the Gita, Vedanta and yoga had also been published.

Ram Swarup

Ram Swarup(1919-1998) graduated from the University of Delhi in 1941 and had been an original writer and thinker ever since. He participated in his country's struggle for independence, courting imprisonment. For some years, he was a close associate of British-born Mira Behn (Miss Slade), Mahatma Gandhi's adopted daughter. In the fifties he led a movement warning against the growing danger which international communism presented to the newly won freedom of the country. Around 1957, he took to a life of meditation and spiritual reflection, and since then he had made a deep study of the scriptures of different religious traditions. Ram Swarup was a noted writer in many fields. His previous books and brochures include Communism and Peasantry : Implications of Collectivist Agriculture of Asian Countries, Foundations of Maoism, and Buddhism vis-a-vis Hinduism. His Gandhism and Communism stressed the need to raise the struggle against communism from a military to a moral and ideological level. The brochure caught the attention of several US Congressmen, and some of its ideas were adopted by the Eisenhower administration in its agenda for the Geneva Conference in 1955. His Gandhian Economics, small but seminal, shows that the present industrial production system suffers form circularity, a deep internal technological contradiction-coal and iron, and a hundred other commodities symbolized by them, producing and consuming one another in a crescendo, round and round. His magnum opus, The Word As Revelation : Names of Gods, is on Linguistics, Philosophy, Vedic exegesis, and Yoga. It shows how a religion of 'many Gods' represents authentic spirituality.
