महामंडल के हिन्दी प्रकाशन :
महामंडल की समस्त पुस्तिकाओं एवं इसकी सम्वाद पत्रिका विवेक अंजन का अध्यन करने से युवाओं को अपना सुन्दर जीवन गठित करने में बहुत सहायता मिलेगी, प्रत्येक जाति और धर्म के युवा इससे लाभान्वित होंगे. यहाँ तक कि जो युवा भाई किसी धर्म या ईश्वर में विश्वास नहीं करते किन्तु भारत से प्यार करते हों तो उनको भी इन पुस्तिकाओं के अध्यन से बहुत लाभ होगा. 
किशोरावस्था अथवा अल्पायु में मानव जीवन का मूल्य तथा चरित्र-गठन की अनिवार्यता समझ में नहीं आती और उम्र बढ़ जाने के बाद उस दिशा में प्रयत्न करने पर हताशा ही हाथ लगती है. यदि कम उम्र में ही कोई तरुण इन पुस्तिकाओं का अध्यन कर लें तो वैसी सम्भावना नहीं रहेगी. इन पुस्तिकाओं का अध्यन करने तथा उनमें दिए गये परामर्शों को अमल में लाने पर युवाओं के जीवन में विफलता कभी नहीं आ सकती.

Mahamandal ki samast pustikaon evam iski samvad patrika " Vivek-Jivan " ka adhyan karne se pratyek yuva bahut labhanvit honge.kishoravastha ya yuva kal me manavjivan ka mully tatha jivan-gathan ki anivaryta samajh me nhin aati hai aour umra badh jane ke bad us disha me prayatna karne se hatasha hi hath lagti hai.yadi kam umra me hi koi in pustikaon ka adhyan kar le to vaisi sambhavna nhin rahegi. ' charitra-gathan','manah sanyog','ek yuva aandolan','Jivan-gathan'aadi pustikayen manushy jivan ko sarthak ya safal banane ki vidhiyan batlatin hain.
in pustikaon ke adhyan karne se tatha unme diye gaye paramarshon ko amal me lane se yuvaon ke jivan me vifalta kabhi nahin aa sakti.
