Brahmavadinthe first magazine started under the inspiration of Swami Vivekananda.
Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission publish several journals in English and in many Indian and foreign languages. The first journal however published under the advice and with the encouragement of Swami Vivekananda was the Brahmavadin which means The Messenger of Truth.
Swamiji conceived the idea of bringing out a journal when he was in America during 1893-1897 and he wrote to Alasinga Perumal a close associate and admirer of Swamiji in Madras. Brahmavadin made its appearance in Madras on Saturday 14 September 1895. Though it was not an official organ of the Ramakrishna Mission it played an important role in highlighting its earliest philanthropic activities and thus contributed to the furtherance of the ideals of the Ramakrishna Movement. After the demise of Alasinga in 1909 its publication was irregular and the last issue of Brahmavadin was brought out in 1914. Soon after the Brahmavadins legacy was continued by a new journal The Vedanta Kesari started by the Ramakrishna Math Chennai and has been in circulation ever since.
