'Great Sayings' was first published in 1989. The book has undergone several reprints since then which attests to its popularity. "Sri Ramakrishna taught no creed or dogma he taught only Truth which he also called God. The highest thing man can acheive in life according to him is attainment of a moral and spiritual level where he can never deviate from what he knows to be Truth. This attainment is also marked by a feeling of oneness with every being on earth. Following in his steps both Sri Sri Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda preached the same ideal. In these pages words of the trio are given for the benefit of those who are not able to go to the larger sources." A separate photo of Sri Ramakrishna Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda is included in the book.
