wiki says "Brahmo Samaj (Bengali: ব্রাহ্ম সমাজ Bramho Shômaj) is a Hindu reform movement. It is the societal component of Brahmoism, a monotheistic reformist movement of the Hindu religion that appeared during the Bengal Renaissance. It is practised today mainly as the Adi Dharm after its eclipse in Bengal consequent to the exit of the Tattwabodini Sabha from its ranks in 1839"

There are a lot of problems with Brahmo philosophy. They don't adhere to the real Hindu philosophy and reject the Vedas. That's why after the advent of Ramakrishna Paramhansa, who realigned the people to the correct form of substantial Hinduism, the formal Brahmo society was dissolved. Individuals might still adhere, but there's no prominence. It was dissolved mainly because Hinduism is a substantial religion, with something to offer to those who adhere to it. Brahmo on the other hand was simply an aimless version of Hinduism mixed with Christian universalism.

    @KarmanyaNanda They aren't a sect actually. – Surya Kanta Bose Chowdhury Apr 14 '18 at 5:01
  • This answer is mostly correct. However, Brahmo Samaj did not reject the Vedas. They rejected the caste syste, murthi puja and some other customs and traditions that were at that time thought to be part of Hinduism. – Pradip Gangopadhyay Apr 14 '18 at 13:42
