Subhasita Samgraha ("Collected Discourses") is a series of 25 books, part of the vast literary heritage of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar aka Shrii Shrii Anandamurti (1921–1990), that assembles 214 Dharma Mahacakra (DMC)[nb 2] discourses given by the author.[nb 3]


The range of topics are linked to the sphere of spirituality and intuitional science. The first book ("Subhasita Samgraha Part 1") starts with the speech "The Evolution of Society"[4] helded from the author at "Rampur colony", Jamalpur (India), on the occasion of his first DMC on January 1, 1955.

Chris Kang[nb 4] on his essay "Sarkar and the Buddha's Four Noble Truths",[5] refers the Anandamurti's karma yoga vision described in the Part 1 (pp. 28–32) as "selfless action performed with the attitudes of: 1)relinquishing the desire for the fruits of action, 2)abandoning the vanity of performing an act and 3)surrendering all actions unto Brahma".

The last book, "Subhasita Samgraha Part 25", unpublished in English, starts with "Rudra", the DMC's discourse given by the author on May 5, 1969 in Ranchi[nb 5] India.
