Man is the basic thing and man-making is the fundamental work. Every kind of works from personal life to society depends on the quality of the concerned people, which is ruled by their character. Again character can also be built through practice. So we should not lose hope and try to do practice for improvement of our life.
An individual may, of course, attempt at man-making with himself or others. But, to make a serious attempt everywhere and not to leave it as casual endeavors of a few, an organized effort that will cover all parts of the country is essential. And that is the idea behind the Mahamandal.
The ideas and methods of the Mahamandal are available in the form of about 100 books and booklets in English, Hindi, Bengali, Oriya, and Telugu. Audio cassettes are also available in English, Hindi, and Bengali. Some of the reading materials are made available here for free online reading and download.
