THE VEDANTA Centre of Boston was founded in 1909 by Swami Vivekananda's youngest disciple, Swami Paramananda (1884-1940) the pioneering Hindu Mystic, Ramakrishna monk, poet, Guru and spiritual innovator. In 1912 he founded the "Message of the East" the first Vedanta periodical published in the United States. He also established a monastic community for American women. His first disciple was Sister Devamata (Laura Glenn (1867-1942)). She became his assistant in 1910, and is known for her literary works, her editing of both Swami Vivekananda's and Swami Paramananda's lectures, and as chief editor of the Message of the East. In 1915, Swami Paramananda opened a Vedanta Centre in Los Angeles, dividing his time between Boston and L.A.
