Sri RamaKrishna Paramhansadeb

"A man is truly free, even here in this embodied state, if he knows that God is the true agent and he by himself is powerless to do anything."

Sri Sarda Devi

"Each has to get the result of the actions one has earned for this life. A pin at least must prick where a wound from a sword was due."

Swami Abhedananda

"Every religion can be divided into two parts, one of which may be called the nonessential and the other the essential.."

Ramakrishna Vedanta Math-Publications

Books are published for worldwide propagation of Vedanta and to guide the people towards cultural and spiritual training. In these days of rapid decadence particularly in the field of moral and spiritual qualities in the rank and file of mankind threatening the very existence of humanity, it is sine-qua-non to propagate the life-giving universal truths of Vedanta together with the great legacy of the highest Indian Culture and the ethics of true religion of inestimable value propounded in the divine lives and teachings of Bhagawan Sri Ramakrishna and his apostles.

This is exactly what is done by this Institution established by one of such apostles, His Holiness Srimat Swami Abhedananda, the illustrious spiritual brother of Swami Vivekananda, by means of the publications made at its Calcutta Headquarters and distribution of books through its own centres at Darjeeling, Kurseong and Siliguri and 30 centres of the Ramakrishna Order, besides the renowned booksellers — all scattered throughout the length and breadth of the nation and abroad. It will not be travesty of truth to say that in this field of the most important national activity this Institution stands second to none but the Ramakrishna Mission established by His Holiness Srimat Swami Vivekananda.
