माई कुमारी सहस्रनाम
JAY MAI JAY MARKAND MAI
There is a theory that every woman has a womb in her forehead also, where the most righteous woman gathers up righteousness and religiosity which she can impart to children, and when that desire arises in such a woman, i.e., to beget a righteous and religious child, She brings into being a righteous soul or a Saviour, which millions of the usual Kama driven actions can not.
 कामधुक् Kaamadhuk - The cow of plenty, fulfilling all desires.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 795
 कामपूजिता Kaam-poojitaa - ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 375
Worshipped by Kaama, the deity of cupidity and sexual pleasure and happiness; or She that is worshipped in Kaama Rupa, i.e., the portion in the human body, near the place of happiness, i.e., Mulaadhaara Chakra. In the human body, Mother is supposed to have been mainly centred at four points figuratively named as under :
1. Kaama Rupa Peetha near Mulaadhaara Chakra or place of enjoyment. 2. Odyaana Peetha near the navel, i.e. near Manipura Chakra 3. Purnagiri Peetha near the heart, i.e., near Anaahata Chakra. 4. Jaalandhar Peetha near the throat, i/e., near Vishhuddhi Chakra.
 कामरूपिणी Kaamarupini - Creator, fulfiiler and annihilator of desires. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 796
While getting fulfillment, the aspirants come to learn that the pains that are required to be undergone for obtaining the fulfillment as immense as contrasted with the out-put and the sequence and that the happiness which was anticipated is not there. They begin to realise that trying to satisfy all desires is a pursuing a mirage . They than come to a higher stage of achieving the condition when desires themselves get few and feeble. They begin to meditate and find that the source which creates , fulfills and annihilates desires is Mother. She is all in all regarding the desires. Thus understanding the truth they finally come to worship Her not for desires but for Her own Grace.
And then a sympathy, a reverential love is born, and She is meditated upon as beauty, delicacy, love, mercy and as the source of happiness, in names as under.
 कामसेविता Kaama-sevitaa - Attended by Kaama ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 586
Kama means the bodiless one( god of love ). As stated in scriptures: He, though without fingers worshipped Mother, without tongue spoke to Mother and appealed to Mother. He saw Mother without eyes, he touches Mother's form without fingers. This shows that no ceremonial for worship is indispensable.
 कामाक्षी Kaamaakshi -Lovely eyed.She to whom Her devotees are as dear as Her own eyes.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 62
 कामेशज्ञातसौभाग्यमार्दवोरूद्वयान्विता Kaamesha jnaata saubhaagya maardavoru dvayaanvitaa - The blessingfulness and smoothness of Her thighs are only to the devotees who know what is highest fortune, viz., to be sharers with Her in the responsibility of managing the universe.ललितासहस्रनामस्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 39
The idea is that an infant is suckled, but when the child grows up and becomes a boy, Mother makes him sit in the lap, and while patting his head and playing Her fingers in his curls , tells him by sweetest words of advice about what should and should not be done, how facts are, how different conditions should be faced and initiates him very gradually and imperceptibly in to the act of sharing with her, her responsibilities . So also of the Mother.
It need not be re-stated that Kaamesh in the original means Shiva as husband of Shakti, but here it means as in bracket above. Mangala Sutra in popular meaning means the marriage thread which a wedded wife wears and prizes more than anything else as contributing to the life and happiness of her husband.
It is worn as sign of her faithfulness, chastity and the livingness of her husband. The interpretation of Mangala Sutra may be taken as " tied-for-devotees ", and " their welfare securing thread ".
The vital current of the devotee during that absorbed condition. She is the protector of the devotee during the Laya condition just as even when the devotee falls unconscious on a main busy traffic road like Khar in Bombay (Mumbai). When the devotee sees face to face his unworthiness or inability to return the gratitude for whatever Mother has done for him, he asks Mother," Say Mother, should I live or die.Dost Thou tolerate my living ? " " This ungrateful living is unbearable to me. I wipe out my existence. ". He is then in a such condition that only Mother has been protecting him then. Mother raises and restore him. These are very dangerous moments and whether the devotee lives or dies is a question. So Mother is then the vital current.
The name suggests the meaning that the devotee in this condition is known only by the fact that the pulse is throbbing.
 कामेश्वरप्रेमरत्नमणिप्रतिपणस्तनी Kaameshvara-premaratnamani-pratipanastani
- Her two breasts are the rewards offered in exchange for the priceless gem of the love and light of the Kaameshvara.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 33
It need not be repeated that Mother is not the Father's wife as per Mother's Ideal, and even then in the Founder's opinion there can nothing more revolting than for children to even think of the husband and wife relation between Father and Mother, or for parents to think of the sexual relations of the daughter and son in law.
There can be no greater bluntness of heart than that devotees may indulge in the sexual relationship of the worshippables. The philosophy of lover and beloved, or husband and wife, however relishing, is, in Founder's opinion and experience, much inferior to that of Mother and child.
From personal experience the Founder states that the pangs of separation and ecstasy of joy is many times much greater.
There are four principal parts of Mother's physical person and four kinds of devotees. The face, the breasts, the lap and the Lotus Feet. Sweet smiles of Mother are for the newly initiated devotees desirous of controlling their desires. They look into Her face, forget their misery and get wonderfully encouraged to push on forward on their path of spiritual progress. They know only face and meditate thereon. Next, Mother gives the suckling of Her breasts full of knowledge, devotion and Love-nectar to the advanced devotees who have mastered their desires especially the sexual desire. Further, Mother offers Her lap to the volunteering devotees who share Her work and worries in Her great work of conducting the universe and protecting righteousness, and finally Mother offers Her Lotus Feet, which are invisible and unattainable for all others , to only fully self dedicated devotees of the best and most supreme devotion.
This is a meditation and interpretation in just the reverse order of the usual meditation method.Mother's meditation is not from from toe to top but from top to toe and the highest devotee is he who proceeding from up, from the meditation of the most charming merciful face finally merges in the devotional meditation of Mother's Lotus Feet.
Just as Kaamesha and Kaameshvaraa are different, so are Ganesh and Ganeshvara different. Ganesh is determination and discrimination and Ganeshvara is destroyer of doubt.
If, after that wasteful action is eliminated and evil company is shunned by judicious action and right thinking, the devotee has mastered his desires, i.e., has become Kaameshvar, Mother smiles at him with approbation for his struggles and success. What arises from this smile is the destruction of all doubts ( the destroyer being Ganeshvara) about Mother's existence, Her readiness to help Her devotees, the final law of action and reaction and the conviction that each experience takes him along way Mother-ward.
 कामेश्वरास्त्रनिर्दग्धसभण्डासुरशून्यका Kaameshvaraatra-agni-nirdagdha-sa-Bhandaasura-shunyakaa - Bhandaasura with his army was burnt up by the (Love) fire of the (weapon of) Kaameshvara.
ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 82
It is after so many efforts that the superior devotee becomes finally able to kill Bhandaasura by the Fire of Love which he bears to Mother. The subtle point to be noted here is that, although Mother has helped the devotee all throughout, the demon is finally killed by the Kaameshvar. This means that the liberation work of oneself is to be done by oneself alone.
 काम्या Kaamyaa - The Desideratum.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 321
Those who desire liberation and find that they are not sufficiently suited to follow the other routine paths of evolution , desire to approach God as Mother, whose Grace alone , is powerful enough to do the rest.
 कार्यकारणनिर्मुक्ता Kaarya-kaarana-nirmuktaa - She that makes Her devotees relieved from the vicious circle of causes and effects.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 862
This idea is above expressed.Not only should there be the conviction but a practice to eliminate all Kaarans (causes). If you have to suffer, consume the suffering without any resistance, i.e., without sowing another seed to brings own misery. This is the hidden meaning of Christ's teaching "Resist not evil". Renounce your claim even to the fruits of good actions , lest while being placed in the position of the enjoyment of meritorious fruits , you invite other unpleasant fruits.
The second lofty thought is that, that true love is false which clings to love for selfish sweets of love. This idea has been admirably borne out by Lord Shiva, who is the ideal of renunciation, who resides in burning grounds and whose wealth is ashes.
 कालकण्ठी Kaala-kanthi - Kalaakantha कालकण्ठ is the name of Shiva शिव conveying the fact that Shiva has swallowed up poison and keep it in His throat (kantha कण्ठ ), and had so doing saved the universe from Kaalaकाल . (The Destroyer).
Kaalakanthi कालकण्ठी is usually taken to mean wife of Shiva शिव but Mother's Lodge members as so often stated should take the meaning to be She by whose Grace Shiva शिव was enabled to swallow up the poison and save the universe.
 कालरात्र्यादिशक्त्यौघवृता Kaala-raatraayaadi-shaktoyugha-vritaaAttended by host of Shaktis, Kaalaraatri, etc.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 491
 कालह्न्त्री Kaalahantri - Destroyer of "Time-Destroyer" ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 557
 काव्यकला Kaavya-kalaa - Poetic Art.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 798
Mother is not the sordid, austere and pleasure inimical God of austerity, nor does She indulge in sexual apathy or consort-cursing. She is on the other hand poetic and She is fond of the nine sentiments so much indulged in poets and poetic minds, viz., Shringaara श्रृंगार (love), Bibhatsa बीभत्स (disgust), Raudra रौद्र (wrathfulness), Adbhuta अदभुत् (wonder), Bhaya भय (terror), Vira वीर (heroism), Haasya हास्य (mirth), Karunaa करूणा (Compassion) and Shaanta शांत (composure) and all these sentiments are seen in Mother's glances, according to the relation She has with the person looked to.
[Please vide shloka श्लोक 51 of Saundarya Lahari सौन्दर्य लहरी .]
Whether Her devotees pray to Her in form of prose or poetry, by songs or hymns, all words being the form of Herself spoken with the energy and inspiration given by Her, She completes the incomplition, perfects the imperfection, and accepts whatever is offered in shape of speech or language.
She inspires Her devotees to give a masterly speech to Her during Her communion with them and She sometimes pampers them with very sweet words Herself.
The idea is She enables and teaches Her devotees, how to love, how to address, how to please Her, with masterly speeches, She sports.
 काष्ठा Kaashthaa - The goal of all souls and the universe. The destination or final condition which all souls strive to reach and which the universe is made to go to.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 859
 किरिचक्ररथारूढदण्डनाथापुरस्कृता Kirichakrarathaarudha-dandanaathaa-puraskritaa
- She is preceded by Danadanaatha, who rides Her chariot Kirichakra. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 70
Kiri means boar.The chariot is drawn by boars. Kirichakra-mounting is riding rough-shod.
Taking the case of very mediocre devotee, to start with, Dandanaatha दण्डनाथ same as Dandini दण्डिनी, helps him by giving him strength to override rough conditions and sometimes also by saving him from consequences of others riding rough-shod over him.Next, Mantrini मन्त्रिणी saves him from the evils of worldliness and of temporary happy living, by constantly reminding him of the Mother's lotus Feet, and of the supreme truth, that whatever good has fallen to his lot is due to Her Grace.
Kundala means coiled and hence Kundalini means what is coiled. Its own form is like a coiled serpent.
" The shining(Tejas तेजस) vital energy(Jivashakti जीव शक्ति), which is the manifestation of life (Praana प्राण), is called Kundalini. This resides in the center of the flames of fire of Mulaadhaara Chakra. She is sleeping like a serpent, having three (and a half) coils , radiant and she is ever hissing in the centre of sushumnaa the central passage of the spinal cord, where She resides.
 कुमारगणनाथाम्बा Kumaargananaathaambaa - ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 442
Mother worshipped by Kumaar the deity of war(Mars) and Gananaath , the deity of success. Kumaar psychologically means celibacy. Mother that is attainable by supremacy over discrimination and determination, and with the perennial reservoir of the most carefully preserved sexual energy. The highest and most efficient energy is the sexual energy, which can be utilized to do the most wonderful work.It is therefor why I have often most emphatically stated "Very little practical work can be done by institutes of selfish, self-contained, unenergetic, motionless, ever anxious, pulled out and child producing people, of wise talk, no leisure, no work and no usefulness.( Page 38, Theory and Principles of Mother's Lodge.)
Any institute that wants to do solid work shall be required to have quite an appreciable number of unmarried workers , of both sexes. The fright of unmarried life and the social, wicked and suspicious mentality about the unmarried life shall have to be wiped away, as soon as any such institute gains strength.
There can be nothing more foolish than to presume that it is impossible for a man or a woman, to remain chaste in the unmarried stage. there is nothing more suicidal than succumbing to a life long bondage of married life , for one who has the aspirations and capacities of higher life , of Service , Love and Devotion, simply because there is the fear or even the extremely remote possibility of once-in-life failure in some accursed wick moment, or because there is no provision of maintenance made by society, or parents or relations or religious institutes.
When married life becomes selfish to the core , when none is free to consider, watch and serve the general weal and welfare, each married couple lives simply for adding to the poverty of the already half famished populace of a country, unmarried life shall welcome as a boon to the individuals, who are out for Mother's work and society.
There are dangers, no doubt, of unmarried life as well, but no doubt, unmarried life is a boon to them that are really great and have a higher ambition and goal than that of sense-living and who almost dedicated their life to doing service to humanity.The Founder's first question to every youngster (thousands of whom have approached him) is, " Are you married ? "
Mostly married people seek protection for being saved themselves, with absolutely no possibility of being useful to save others.
In the opinion of the Founder, the salvation if India does not lie in political game-playing or warfare, but in the building of character, for one and all of the nation, through the religious revival in new form with the Mai-istic Life maxims of "Love All, Serve All, Devote yourself to Mother (or Father) with unconditional cheerful self surrender," sharpening the thirst for higher happiness which once tasted kicks out material happiness, through celibates of both sexes in thousands with their life dedicated to Mother of Humanity, their wide-spread religious education, under the guidance and the supervision of the world-renounced high souls (not diplomatic agitators) and through ample provisions by Religious Institutes for helping the poor and destitute, and through affording protection to the needy, etc.
Those that have been suckled by Mother with Her breasts of nectar ever remain to be children, and as innocent of sexual pleasure as children, as an instance of this, Kumaar or Kaartikeya , who remains celibate, may be quoted.
 कुरूकुल्ला Kurukullaa - She that is situated in the tank of the Shree Chakra, in the space between walls of Chit and Ahamkaar. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 438
PLEASE REFER TO KUMARI SAHASRANAM , MOTHER'S THOUSAND NAMES ETC PUBLICATIONS OF UNIVERSAL MAI-ISM TRUST, MAI NIWAS, SARASWATI ROAD END, SANTA CRUZ WEST, MUMBAI - 400054, INDIA.
[ 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 Religion 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 first 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 as at the hand, as well as that a new age ( Aquarian ) is being ushered in taking 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." ]
