    Prophets need no testimonies, but only great minds can recognize greatness. The diverse impressions on great people of a prophet’s greatness give a different dimension of these luminaries, which we missed with our superficial observation. The book documents the sublime and deep thoughts of great people worldwide on Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda. While some had the privilege of meeting these divine personages, others have been deeply influenced by their life and teachings. A revised edition of the earlier book, this volume contains many new material like facsimiles of the tributes of Mahatma Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore. While we come across many oft-quoted utterances, we also find many lesser known statements like those by the scientist Satyendra Nath Bose and writer Munshi Premchand. Some thoughts are truly remarkable. The observation by Mahendranath Sircar is a case in point: ‘Vivekananda was the spirit of selflessness incarnated in flesh’ (113). The source of each utterance has been given and biographical sketches of the thinkers have been appended. A study of this book reveals interesting information, like the similarity of the constitutions of the Ramakrishna Mission and the unesco. This book will inspire many to know more about Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda and will be a handy reference for research scholars.
