INTRODUCTION

This is a collection of the sayings of Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother Sarada Devi, Swami Vivekananda and the Direct Disciples as they 'said' on a particular date of the year.

The collection has been made by selecting the sayings or extracts from letters or reminiscences as available in the books of the Ramakrishna Order. According to the availability, the number of entries has been single or multiple. However, those entries have been chosen which are related to spiritual or Sangha life in general. Historical events of the Ramakrishna Order have also been included under some dates, but not exhaustively. Those dates which remind us of the birth and passing away of the great souls of the Ramakrishna Movement, like the Direct Disciples and the Lay Disciples of Sri Ramakrishna have also been included.

Entries were not found for some dates. Entries of the next or previous day have been put under these dates. There were some entries whose exact date was not available. Such entries have also been included under the 'no entry' dates.

The references have been given under each entry.

The collection is not exhaustive and is undoubtedly subject to modification and improvements.
