some mystic knowledge of occult religious nature, it is known fact that visions and dreams
are powerful avenues of divine communications.Deities and dead or distant Guru carry their
work through dreams, regarding the interpretations of which the wisest are often at their
desires, imaginations and ambitions, and sometimes actually by way of a command,
message or guidance, or even initiation by the higher souls. There is no seal of certainty
about its source, and every dream has to be dealt with most cautiously, neither with blind
faith, nor with nothing-caring-indifference. The best thing is to consult and take decision
from one in whom you believe and who is more advanced religious soul, higher than
Universal Religion Mai-ism, popularly known as Mai Swarup Mai Markand or Maiji), dreams
and visions have played an extremely important part, as would be seen from so many
instances narrated already and to be narrated hereafter.

Mother -Installing message, referred to before . This young man happened to come to the
hotel as a casual visitor, like one of so many passers-by where the Founder was residing.
The Founder also , by chance, just went to the dinning -floor, at the time that man was
half-meal and ran after the Founder. Most abruptly, he talked to Founder," Are you a
devotee of a Devi?" Founder also made no delay, " Yes, not only a devotee, but a
passionate, most uneasy devotee". Still more abruptly the man said, " I come from Mysore. I
have a message to hand over to you from your Mother". The Founder got dumb-founded.
"Yes, please come up to my room". The man followed. The message was communicated.
Said the man," I have come down so far. Would you not favour me with the spark of Love
for Mother? I have enough of divine knowledge (Jnana) and Ritualistic Bhakti, just for my
purposes ( this was only his modesty ). Said Founder," Are you prepared ? Would you sit
with me on the bench of the Sheikh Sulla bridge (in Poona - Pune) during night hours?" He
agreed. The Founder was sitting with him in exposure from 11 P.M. to 4 A.M. on a wooden
vision of Mother, at least in the dream. He had a dream, on sleeping. Mother appeared
before him and said," You are now longing for my Darshan ( vision). Who was talking to
you for hours on the bridge ? That was myself. You have not only seen me, but talked with
me for hours." The man full of devotion and with tears in his eyes, narrated the event

him as a waiter. Like Totapuri in Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa's life, he was talking to the
Founder, almost spurningly or atleast belittlingly about Founder's devotional madness and
absence of regularity, looseness in daily routine trivial matters, over-kindness to
undeserving, mind weakness, etc. It was in the manner of a Gyani or a Yogi with an
extreme superiority complex, talking from the terrace to a foot-path man. All this took place
during the day time, on the first-arrival-day.
gets up between 8 and 9 in morn. As soon as Founder woke up, the Yogi made a long
prostration, and began to speak in humblest words ,' Forgive me. Forgive my impudence,
my folly, my swollen-headedness . For the first time in my life, I have a cause to
repent. Even a house holder can be a highest religious man. Thou art the Divine Mother, in

standing near the edge of the plateau. Somehow his foot slipped and he rolled most
hurtfully along the slope.He was being crushed with ice-blocks falling on him. He came
rolling at the foot of the mount.He had got senseless. When he got consciousness, he saw
that one most beautiful Mother was nursing him. She lifted him and carried him to a long
deep cave and placed him lying just at the cave-mouth. The Mother shouted hard to
someone in the cave, 'Come out quick, a great Yogi has slipped from the mount and is
most seriously hurt.' Out came a simple dressed quite an ordinary-looking man, with
childlike lustrous face."

periodically. All will worship her, ask questions, advice and blessings, this was in a much
earlier period. Whereas the Yogi incident was in 1944, this one was in 1936 in Poona
(Pune). Somehow Founder was introduced to the lady, and she began to take him"right and
left". She attacked him ruthlessly," Do you think mere knowledge is God's Grace ?? Does
any Maataaji favour you with Her Grace by making you yourself the Maataaji ? Can you tell
me now what is going on at a certain place and a certain hour ? Show me what you are
capable of ." The Founder was more than "ground-dusted". He prostrated to her saying " I
am simply a worthless nothing ". This took place at about 3 p.m. on a Sunday, at some
common friend's house. The next day, she was found in her motor at the very door of the
Founder's office. Founder was surprised. He took her in. There was no prostration, but full
humility in her eyes. She asked pardon in the honorable manner that a lady, and one who
was herself worshipped as Maataaji, can do.
(Chennai) city, who had seen the Founder only twice at Madras (Chennai) when he went
for the first time to Madras for Sister's gathering on Dusserah day (1-10-1949), had a
dream at 4.30 A.M. ; he wrote it out to the Founder. It was nearly ten months since they had
any correspondence whatsoever. The substance was: " I was sitting on a sea-shore.
Something took place and I was hurled down into the sea - life itself being in danger and
practically lost. I began to struggle hard with hands and feet and to repeat with the
highest intense devotion, the most effectious hymns and mantras of Shri Tripura Sundari,
Ambika and Ganapati. All hope lost, but finally Mother was pleased to save me. There was
an upward push which brought me near up to the surface. I was over joyful on being
practically saved. I saw Mother Herself on the shore, with "one". That "one" jumped into the
sea and clasped my hand and pulled me out on the shore ".
surprised to find who that "one" was. It was Mai-Swarup Mai Markand, Founder and
President of Mother's Lodge. You are the most Beloved Soul of Mother. You are the replica
, you are Her embodiment ", etc. etc.
