About New Thought Author A. K. Mozumdar

Akhoy Kumar Mozumdar, more commonly known as A.K. Mozumdar, was an Indian lecturer and writer of the New Thought Movement in the United States during the first half of 20th-century. He was born in a small village in India and was the son of an attorney. The Mozumdars were a well-established, high caste family. Mozumdar's mother was very devout and seemed to foresee her youngest child's career as a spiritual teacher when she named him Akhoy Kumar, meaning "Son of God." Mozumdar exhibited a deep knowledge of God - and taught what he called, the "Cosmic Creative Principle." After leaving his family home, he spent time traveling throughout India, then traveled to Bethlehem in search of enlightenment about Christianity. He spent several years in China and Japan, but later realized that his destiny was to teach in America.

Mozumdar had come to America at the mandate of his own renowned Guru, the Master Arumda, with whom he had studied since the age of eight. After 25 years Arumda had informed his devoted disciple that his real dharma was to serve the ‘Great Plan’ in America. In 1913 Mozumdar became the first Indian-born person to earn U.S. citizenship. In 1918, Akhoy Kumar began his own career as a spiritual counseler, lecturer, and writer. A. K. Mozumdar was also the founder of the Christian Yoga Society.

A.K. Mozumdar had many devoted students and friends during his lifetime. His talks were practical, direct and realistic. Mozumdar's teachings about the connection between the mind and the body is gaining renewed interest today as researchers in the medical field are probing those links as well. Mozumdar was very close to several leaders in the International New Thought Alliance and Reverend Ernest Holmes, an American spiritual writer, teacher and founder of a Spiritual movement known as Religious Science, ad author of "Science of Mind" was a close friend and admirer.

A.K. Mozumdar's Universal Message was that God is within you, inseparable from you. "We are forever united with God," he wrote, "and can never be separated.... If man can live his life today in harmony and peace with all, he will automatically reach the goal of Perfect Realization. This message does not lay special emphasis on the attainment of the Absolute Goal of Realization, but on living today's life by creating higher qualities regarding oneself and all with whom one associates."
