Any idol or image, symbol or emblem, picture or the sacrificial altar or any object, installed anywhere, either in a Church, or a Temple, or a Mosque or Synagogue, and worshiped by any people in any manner and any mode they decide , with any gospel or scriptures they prefer, but base on the conception that it represents Universal God. whether Mother or even Father or Jointly as Mother & Father etc., easily propitiable on living the life on the lines of the above stated tenets, by itself, is Mai or the Universal Mother..
Similarly any preceptor preaching or teaching or propagating or inculcating the doctrine of Universal Religion with Mai, the Universal Mother as its pivot and rallying focus and wedded to the said tenets, is Maiji of that particular group or area or generation or even age.
The followers of the Universal Religion of Mai - ism, with the Universal Mother or Mai as the Universal God, easily propitiable on the living out the oft repeated principles, whether they form individuals or groups, associates or adherents or co-workers or devotees, are all Mai-ists. Mai-ists that have taken their oath of allegiance are U.R.M.s of general or life-long oath.
The doctrine of Universal Religion entwined round Mai the Universal Mother, with its said indispensable cardinal principles of love, service, devotion and unconditional cheerful self-surrender and recognition of the spiritual co-equal status of man and woman, is Mai-ism.
These universal conceptions and interpretations represent the quintessence of the Universal Religion of Mai-ism and it is this, that has been meant to be conveyed whenever the terms MAI, MAIJI, MAI-ISTS and MAI-ISM are used, under the universal religion of Mai-ism.

It cannot be, however, too much emphasised that under Mai-ism, female devotees need not begin to think as men, or compose devotional poems as men and should mentally transform themselves to be men, to be considered eligible for devotion for Mother's Grace. In Mai-ism, man has no superiority over women, either from the point of evolution of the soul or worthiness to get Mother's Grace. Mother's Lodge is an institute of Sisters and Brothers and not that of brothers alone that have been liberal hearted enough to extend admission to sisters. Mai-ism means an equal religious recognition for both sexes.MARRIAGE UNION IN MOTHER WORSHIP IS THE HIGHEST SPIRITUALISING AND FAMILY HAPPIFYING FORCE.

ADDRESS : MAI NIWAS, SARASWATI ROAD END, SANTA CRUZ ( WEST ), MUMBAI 400054.
NOTE : - Mai-ism was represented at All Faiths' Conference at Nasik ( India ) in 1933 and the Indian Philosophical Congress at Poona ( India ) in 1934. Maiji was invited to Japan for the World Religious Congress in 1955. Maiji was the Sub-Councillor-in-Chief of the International Religious Federation which was started in Japan in 1955.
Maiji had been elected as VICE PRESIDENT and spiritual MINISTER for PEACEFUL HUMAN RELATIONSHIP & Universal Religious Alliance ( U.R.A. ) in Havana, Cuba for SIX YEARS FROM 1959 TO 1965.
The most appreciated representation of Mai-ism was at the Universal Religious Alliance World Congress held at Havana in Cuba from 23 October 1959 to 22 January 1960. Mai-ism was explained, discussed and commented upon in the World Congress by Revered Sister Duchesse Blanche Ledran, the Grand Chancellor of the Universal Religious Alliance. Mai-ism received the greatest approbation in this World Congress of the Universal Religious Alliance, which has a standing of over five decades. In fact it is one of the most important universal religious institutes. As stated in the Preliminary Report pertaining to the Congress held on 23 October 1959, the complete attendance at the Congress was around 3800 persons 2184 of which intergrated about 318 different official delegations, which came from 96 different countries. The representation was of 449 different sections and sub-sections of religious and various organisations. Further more, 43 countries had sent their official observers. Appreciation and truest understanding about Mai-ism by the said World Congress would be evident from these words; " We have received valuable literature from all quarters of the world, which amply reveals that the regeneration of man is at hand, as well as that a new age ( Aquarian )is being ushered in taking the shape of a brand new Spiritual Civilisation. We recommend such sources of research. We recommend Mai-ism and the Mai Institute of Santa Cruz West, Bombay - 54, India". ~ Extract from MOTHER'S MESSAGE.
