Brahmo Samaj & Arya Samaj.

    Arya Samaj propounds the Vedas as "divine authority" and advocates going "Back to the Vedas"

    Brahmo Samaj denies that the Vedas are "divine authority" and advocates going "Forward from the Vedas"

    One Samaj is "backward"/retrograde the other is "forward"/(infinitely) progressive.

    Ram Mohan Roy passed away (1833) when Dayanand (b.1824) was only 9 years old. Dayanand was, however, greatly influenced by successor Adi Brahmo Samaj leaders such as Debendranath Tagore, Hemendranath Tagore and Nobin Chunder Roy. During the 1880's the Adi Dharm and Arya Samaj worked closely together in Punjab and in founding the Indian National Congress party. Dayanand, however, had major doctrinal differences with Keshab's Brahmo Samaj of India and its Vaishno-Christian (Christ =  Krishna) confection.
