Nityaa means those powers who constantly reside near Her.
Nityaas are similarly the eternal ameliorating energies of the soul. Nityaas are similarly the presiding powers over each of the fifteen days in the bright and black fortnights.And if the latter are gracious, every day that passes makes the Mother's devotee better and better in some field or other and makes him evolve and progress most speedily.

There are three kinds of imperfects souls  or ( Pashus पशु).
1. The Influenced. (Sakala). 2. The Influenced and Impure.( Pralaya Kala) and 3. The Influenced, Impure and Ignorant. ( Vijnaana-Kevala).
In these three the second has also the duality of the first and the third has both., the duality of the first and the impurity of the second kind.
The Influenced are those who are subject to the influence of the Maayaa, which creates the idea of the duality. These think themselves as separate from Mother, Universe and other souls, and are subject to the influences of the opposite pairs of duality, Happiness and misery, joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain etc.
The impure are those who in addition to the above stated influence are actuated to indulge in evil thoughts , desires and actions as a result of their having been vanquished by desire , pride, avarice, envy, wrathfulness and infatuation, etc.
The ignorant are they who, in addition to the above said influence and impurity, are entirely in the dark and often of perverted judgment and on the wrong line of action. They suffer from the delusion of seeing self in non-self. The ignorant rush in the mudmire, the impure get dragged into it though with open eyes and knowing the results , and the influenced are able to fairly hold their own under normal circumstances but are not fully proof.
Anjana अंजन means black, Niranjan निरंजन means nullifier of  delusive outlook. This Anjana has the quality of veiling ( the real truth ) or perverting the insight and belief about the finalmost unity underlying all infinite diversities, owing to its peculiar quality of making one look through dark and black mentalities spectacles and eyes. 

[360] Niratyayaa  निरत्यया - Intransgressible. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 187
She is intransgressible. In the matter of whatever She desires to do, none can prevent Her or create an obstruction.None can change Her determination and action. In matter of what She wants others to do, some can transgress Her command.

[361] निरंतरा  Nir-antaraa - Who makes no differences. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक  151
It is making differences and distinctions of separateness that is responsible for and the breading ground for fear and hatred, pride and distrust, etc.

[362]  निरपाया  Nirapaayaa - Without any in-congeniality. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 186
This name goes to suggest that following Her path will never be harmful, even though there be mistakes and misunderstandings. It is like popular Indian medicines, which may not work with full efficiency, if something is wrong somewhere, but are so constituted as never to be harmful.

[363]  निर्वद्या Niravadyaa - Defectless. Unaffected by any modifications or causes which deteriorate. With nothing missing or nothing that can be made or be better.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 150

[365]  निराकारा Niraakaaraa - Without form. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 137
This, in another sense, means having infinite forms. Mother is neither a Devi, nor a Deva nor a Daitya, nor a human being nor an animal, nor a woman, nor a man,nor an insect, nor quality, nor existence nor non-existence. Mother is that infinite which remains after all negation.

[366] निरागा Niraagaa  - Without passion.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 156
Mother grants the spirit of renunciation, which is the means of overcoming the six impediments, viz., desire, wrath, covetousness, bewilderment, pride, and envy.

[367] निरागा Niraagaa - Without passion.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 156
Mother grants the spirit of renunciation, which is the means of overcoming the six impediments, viz., desire, wrath, covetousness, bewilderment, pride, and envy.

[368]  Niraa-dhaaraa निराधारा - Without dependence. Niraadhaaraa also means worshipped in the Niraadhaaraa Manner.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 121
The internal worship of Mother is of two kinds, one with support (Saadhaar साधार) and the other without support, (Niraadhaar निराधार), and the latter is higher. The Saadhaar worship is by mental images ( with form ) and the Niraadhaar worship is by pure intellect (i.e., without form).
In the Saadhaar worship, Mother should be joyfully worshipped in a figure which may also be made up of sacred syllables. The worship described as Niraadhaar, is the absorption of the understanding ( manolaya मनोलय ) in the meditation of Mother. In reality pure intellect is by itself nothing else but the supreme Mother. For the destruction of Samsaar ( worldliness) one should worship the supreme Mother, the Supreme Self, the Witness, the Liberator, being free from the glamour of the manifold universe. By one's own direct experience of supreme Mother, as including, and in that sense identified with one self. She should be worshipped with much reverence, and it is this worship which leads to salvation.

[369]  निराबाधा Niraabaadhaa  -  Undisturbed. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 177
Remover of all obstructions in way of true illumination of Her devotees. When it is realised that the appearance of silver in the shell is deceptive, the delusion gradually vanishes; there is no liability of such an error,for them on whom She has conferred Her Grace.

[370]  निरामया Niraamayaa  - Without disease or fatigue or ill-health.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 876

[371] निरामया Niraamayaa  - Without disease or fatigue or ill-health.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 876

[372]  निराश्रया Niraashrayaa - Summarizing, Mother is the Saviour of the hope-lost and Supporter of the support-less. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 147

Saviour of the supportless. Whoever has no sympathizer, supporter or consoler finds the highest Saviour, Supporter, Sympathaiser and Solace-giver in Her.

In the reverse sense, She belongs to them alone, i.e., She is fully realised by them alone, who are supportless, i.e., who have gone above the stage of considering anyone else except Mother to be relied upon , and responsible for their well being or well faring.
So long as the devotee has the thinnest thread of hope in anyone else except Herself, She allows the devote to try it, to teach her or him the lesson, that none but She is hers or his.

Thus Mother is described first as Mother, next as Controller of  all powers, next as Controller of all boons. 

Next is slight reference to the very general way, how different aspirants are with reference to the revolutionary path. 

 Some select few progress by the direct desirelessness but as a general rule , almost all by direct desirefulness. She is the elevating force, from the commencement for the select few of the first type, and degrading force in the beginning and then elevating force generally, for almost all of the other type. One way or the other depends upon the plane on which each soul stands, when She is pleased to confer Her special Grace. Excepting instances of special Grace, the common rule is for each soul to be attracted towards temptations and to be wise by experience and to get wiser and wiser. The first classification includes those that get wise by other's experience or by the meditation of the miseries resulting from evil, by magnifying what little experience they have . Few are able to start from where they are, but most need backing potentiality, i.e., the energy to forcefully rush ahead, as the reaction of temporary retarding and receding.

[373]  निरीश्वरा  Nir-ishvaraa - Without a superior. She about whom, even atheists are constantly busy thinking.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 155
She belongs to both theism and atheism. She about whom thinkers are busy thinking, in spite of their saying that " God does not exist."

[374] निरूपप्लवाNir-upaplavaa   -  Indestructible. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 143

[375]   निरूपमा Nirupamaa - Without a second worthy of being compared or spoken to as a simile even by the most meagre similitude. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 389

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." ]

NAMES 326 TO 350

[326]  धीरसमर्चिता Dhira-samarchitaa - Adored by the patience-Masters. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 917
This is the further requirement of the aspirant, in addition to the right understanding and ceaseless effort. Patience is the quality of remaining uninfluenced, and being able to maintain one's equilibrium, in spite of the most humiliating repeated failures, discomforts, happenings of disagreeable nature, miseries and pains etc.
Those that are true devotees, have a faith, which enables them to keep up their patience and cheerfulness, to the last. One of them has said ;-
"Raise me Mother to the ruler-ship of the whole universe; or throw me in the darkest hell; it is impossible for Thee, to make me severed from my ceaseless effort, to ever remain in the Refuge of Thy Lotus Feet."

[327] धीरा  Dheeraa - Possessor of endurance and power in the battle-field. Dhi धी also means knowledge of non-duality and raa रा means giver. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 916

[328]  धृतीः Dhritih - Fortitude. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 446


[329] ध्यानगम्या   Dhyaan-gamyaa - Perceivable by meditation. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 641

Mother who is otherwise hidden is fully seen in Dhyaana or meditation.

By constant praises and thinking about Mother, there comes a stage when all other senses close their relations with other objects of their pleasures and emerge in this one object, viz., Mother. When all senses thus withdrawn from their respective other objects concentrate in Mother, it is meditation and in that condition She is most visibly seen.

As during my experiences of others about the visualisations of deities  and about the imagined religiosity which is most exaggeratedly believed to have been attained on the only basis of such visibility , I have seen so many misunderstandings, I wish to deal with this subject at length here.


There is meeting of friends, every one of whom says he has an elephant. Every one is almost proud and satisfied that he is the possessor of an elephant, but they are benighted and there is no conveyance to return home. In the meanwhile one of them who was silent says," Oh, my elephant has come. Come on and I will give lift to you and leave you one by one at your homes." The fact was that everyone had an elephant. None was wrong, but one had a paper elephant, another had a cardboard one, still another had an ebonite one, and so on. Only one had a real living useful elephant.


There are many who having some visualisation of some sort get deluded that they have reached the proximity of salvation and that this is their last life. I have met so many.The most pitiable misunderstanding !!


One may have a wonderful visualization but Maai-ist must judge evolution by a reference to what he is. You see in your solitude a figure of any deities, but you are wrathful, greedy, anxious, full of desires, your faculties are not of the highest type, you are not attractive, you have so many enemies, your conclusions are not correct and your forecast of future do not turn out to be correct. You must in that case conclude that there is something wrong about your visions.


You cannot reach Mother or see Mother, unless you are one of the highest souls  with no desires, all readiness to sacrifice , constant remembrance of Mother, high purity, high transparency and great wisdom as to the best way of dealing with and addressing others, etc.


Your having actually seen some deity figure is not denied, but how far that happening means that you are nearer to God or salvation must be judged, more by the permanent conditions of your acquisitions, attainments and developments and righteousness in your living the daily life , than by the mere experience of some vision.


Visualisation arises from several sources : (1) It is simply a thought of mind that creates an impression of your having seen, just as several arrangements of clouds in the sky some figure is sometimes imagined and seen at a certain moment. (2) By still greater intensity and continued thinking and the seeing of a certain conception for a long time a figure is sometimes seen, just as children see something in the dark without there being anything. Numbers 1 and 2 are only mind's makings. (3) Next, by powerful intensity of thoughts, certain elements in the ether are being drawn together and you have the sight. This is an ethereal vision.(4) There are some invisible mischievous spirits who assume the form of the deity and derive frolic by seeing how the deluded man begins to dance , thinking that he is one of the highest souls who have got Saakshaatkaar साक्षात्कार   (direct vision) of God. (5) Next some really good and religious, invisible angelic helper, taking pity on the person pining away for proof of existence or Darshana दर्शन (sight), consoles him and encourages him in his devotion by appearing as a deity. (6) Then comes the deputation of some one by the deity to console and encourage and assist, who appears  as the deity. (7) Then comes the one of the invisible disembodied principal devotees of the particular deity (8) Then comes one of the principal actual companions, and constant adherent of the deity and lastly (9) the deity Herself or Himself.


A vision is seen, but that is no proof of the proximity of salvation or deity's home. It may fall in any of the above nine varieties  which I have enumerated.Which class the vision belongs to, should be judged, as stated above, by one's own personal self-analysis. 


Number (4) is generally very common; sometimes such spirits who are opposed to general religiosity play the mischief and stop the further religious progress by creating the feeling of enoughness.


There are limitations and realities, Judge them by where and what you are. Do not get deluded away. Distinguish between mental, ethereal, spiritual and godly visions.


One way of judging what class the vision belongs to, in addition to the general self-analysis is to see after effects and after conditions. If you are over-powered with a feeling of ecstasy, the feeling of being perfected, being much better than what you were, feeling that you have nothing more to wish or love for, there is a reason to believe the vision to be of  a superior class. You feel you should have vision again and again. The other clue is to see how much of whatever is said  or spoken by the vision figure comes out to be true. Judge the plane of purity which such speech proceeds. Decide the strength of sublimity and sanctity of the speech and emotion and knowledge during the vision. 


Have a very correct analysis of what you are, how you live and what you do. Your vision can not be above what your plane is . If you are a true disciplined disciple , Gurus appear. If you are a devotee, devotees appear.If you are a world-worm with a little hypo-critic appearance of religiosity and doing something here and there , ordinary spirits appear. If you are entirely uncared for  and do not know your way out from a calamity, sometimes your dead relation and friend spirits appear.


The fact is that the way is Infinite. Best that has been said till now by way of instructions by the best people and best founders of all religions is but the first furlong formula. It is useful only for the first furlong of the long, long unknown infinite way. Let people be happy with their respective elephants according to their maximum conceptions. Do not discourage them or break their heavens. Let all be happy by Mother's Grace. 


It is not that the Infinite way is made through by the struggling soul. He is himself unable to explain, record or even know how he reaches the goal. It is Mother and Mother's Grace that lifts him up and places him at or on the Goal.


All talk of wisdom of " Do this and do not do that " except Mother's Grace is mere prattling. It is good in it's own sphere, and many times much better than nothing or the reverse thing, but nothing beyond it.


A multi-millionaire thrusts himself suddenly into the house of his poorest friend and says," My Rolls Royce is waiting. I am going to Mahabaleshwar. Send one of your children  with me." He is extremely quick. He turns his eyes and says," Yes come on,Bhaktiprasad." Catches Maai-sharan, drags Premsvarup, beckons Sevak and puts them all in the car. The car is off in a moment before other children think or even father replies.


Dear reader !! I am very free with thee and much out of the way. The above explains what the Mother's Grace is . It is not the children that go to Mahabaleshwar. What each child's part in the achievement is its purity, amiability and cheerfully self-surrendering mentality. A neatly dressed, happy looking, contended, lovely, serving, obedient, individuality-submerged child.


Be Mother's child. It is not possible for you to wade through the Infinite  unknown way. Mother will take you. You only remain prepared with best though little you have.


Reduce your own individuality. Love, service, devote and surrender . The best musician that visits you will take in his lap the worthless hand harmonium in preference to the most costly one, if the latter though with supreme tunes has one tune of itself, which will go on sounding whether the player wants it or not.


Be prepared to be dealt with by Mother in any way She likes you; you will be the first to be in Her lap for being played with.


Resign yourself to Her. Try to the extent you can. 


Jay Maai ! Jay Maai ! Jay Maai ! Jay Maai ! Jay Maai ! Jay Maai !Jay Maai ! Jay Maai ! Jay Maai ! Jay Maai ! Jay Maai ! 



[330] ध्यानध्यातृध्येयरूपा   Dhyaana-dhyaatru-dhyeya-rupaa -She is the meditation, meditator and the object of meditation. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 254

The bright rays from Her nails dispel the darkness of Her worshippers.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 44
As regards Mother's Lotus Feet and Lotus Hands, there have been most sublime thoughts and emotions.Her one hand is described by Her best devotees ( Naarada being one ), as "ever uplifted, raised hand."
Mother has always Her hand raised.Because, She is a great giver Herself, and Her Hand must therefore necessarily be above that of the one who receives. She is never the receiver,i.e., She will never be failing to be the highest donor in return of love and in fulfilment of the devotees desires.
Regarding Her Lotus Feet, the best devotees have in full devotional love and sportivity said," Mother's Lotus Feet err by their own shadow."

[332]  नटेश्वरी Nateshvari  - She that makes the whole universe dance. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 734

[333] नंदिनी  Nandini -  She that was born with Krishna at Nandaraajaji's house and was emblematic of the supreme power of Lord Shree Krishna. Nandini may be taken to mean the wonderful miraculous supreme power capable of doing, undoing and wonderfully doing or undoing. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 450
This name may be taken to convey the idea of the Power aspect of Mother.

[334]   नन्दिविद्या Nandividyaa - The Service evolutionary path for attaining Mother.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 733

[335]  नलिनी Nalini - Lotus-formed. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 460

[336]  नवचम्पकपुष्पाभनासादण्डविराजिता  Navachampaka pushpaabhanaasaadanda viraajitaa  -  Her nose is beautiful like the newly blown champaka flower. [ ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 19 ]
Champak is the most beautiful flower, with best shape,best colour, and best smell. It is however said that it does not attract bee ( who is not faithful to one flower ). So also those alone are attracted towards Mother who have a single pointed devotion " of one without second ". Mother devotees know no God except Mother, if they are true devotees.

[337] नवविद्रुमबिम्बश्रीन्यक्कारिरदनच्छदा  Navaviduma bimbashri nyakkaari radanchchhadaa - Her lips put to shame the colour of fresh corals and Bimba fruit.  [ ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र,नाम क्रमांक 24 ]

[338]  नादरूपा Naadaroopaa  - In the form of Sound (in the ether).ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 299

[339]  नादरूपिणी Naada-rupini  -  In the form of sound. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 901
The pulse beats and the heart beats. Excepting these two functions  every other moment is indiscernibly stopped. The heart is there simply most piteously repeating. " Maai Maai Maai ".It is this sound in the form of which, Mother is here described.

[340]   नाभ्यालवालरोमालिलताफलकुचद्वयी  Naabhyaa-la-vaala-romaali-lataa-phala-kucha-dvayi   - Her two breasts are the fruits growing on the creeper-like hair which sprang from Her deep navel. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 34

[341]  नामपारायणप्रीता Naama-paaraayana-preetaa - ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 732

She that is pleased by continued repetition of Her name, Hymn or Prayer.
Righteous living, goodness, happiness-conferring and fragrance-spreading have been spoken about. Righteousness and goodness are no doubt most admirable requirements for being happy but they are only the entrance gates of religiosity. Many more things are required to be happy and that is because every one does not act  righteously. Just the reverse of it, the righteous man is generally most crushed because he offers least resistance and is of a harmless and forgiving nature . The world's way is to curse the good man for not being better and to thank the bad man for not being worse, as only that way one's self interest is best served. In this world there are many unknown and uncontrollable forces and happenings and therefore in addition to goodness and righteousness, one needs the Grace of Controller of the Universe.

"Being good", is conveyed in the first requirement of  Mother's Ideals, viz., "Love All". It includes the requirement of  a good and superior heart but goodness will remain barren unless it is translated into action. This is conveyed in the second requirement, viz., "Serve All." Love without service is unfruitful. It has not the material substance to keep the flame ablaze.Service without love does not bring bliss to the server or the served. Thus Love and Service should go together.Further even service with love or love with service is found to be not enough for being happy. We than acquaintance with higher happiness  which laughs at all kinds of little happiness that this world can give . Hence "Devotion to Mother," is the third requirement which we are dealing with here. The third requirement means "Be the pet child of the Controller of the Universe."

Mother is pleased by frequent repetition of Her names which is the simplest method of securing Her Grace. This must be done without any idea of prohibitions of time, place, manner and even bodily condition.


 Repetition must be practiced till your tongue becomes so accustomed that it will go on doing its work without physical exhaustion, exertion and even consciousness, just as some have the habit of unconscious leg-shaking. One devotee says ," Oh tongue, why I have flattered and flattened thee with most dainty dishes !! Why, if it is not with the hope that thou will not prove faithless, and will not fail to save me by repetition of Mother's sacred name !!


 She is further pleased by stotras, which mean age-borne popular hymns and psalms. 


She is further pleased by  Stuti Mati स्तुतिमती , which means the mentality (Mati - मती) to feel grateful for whatever good is found and happens and to offer prayers  of thanks-giving for the same.


[342]  नामरूपविवर्जिता Naamarupavivarjitaa - Transcending name and form.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 300

There are five qualities of the universe, which appear inextricably intertwined in the knot of spirit and matter.These are analysed by great men, are known as 'existence, knowledge, bliss, name and form.'
Everything  Asti (exists), Bhaati (shines, lives), Priya (creates and need joy), Naam (has a name) and Rupa (has a form).

[343] नारायणी Naaraayani  - The first abode of humanity. She is not the finalmost Mother. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 298
Naaraayana means Vishnu or Shiva; the wife of Shiva or sister of Vishnu is called Naaraayani. There is a saying, "Adoration to Shiva, the husband of Naaraayani." Mother's devotees should not get confused at the references made about relationships. Be it any relation, wife or sister or Mother, it should not be taken to mean anything except oneness. Literally Naaraayani means She whose first abode is water or She that is the first abode of man.

The greatest doubts are regarding existence of Mother, the immortality of the soul, the Karmic Law and about the final success of goodness and truthfulness.

[346]  निजसंलापमाधुर्यविनिर्भर्त्सितकच्छपी Nijasallaapa maadhurya vinirbhartsita kachchhapi  - The sweet melody of Her words brought the Kachchhapi to a stop. Kachchhapi is the Vinaa, i.e., the musical instrument of Saraswati or the Goddess Minerva of music. [ ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 27 ]
Sings one devotee :- When Saraswati with Her Vina was singing Thy various triumphs in charmful tunes " O , Thou of  beautiful speech!She immediately closed the melody of of the string of her instrument with her fingertips, as soon as Thou started Thy vocal speech as it was sweeter than the sweetest music, ever sung or played."

Whose commands are explained in scriptures. Scriptures are collection of truths which gives insight into the finalmost object to be attained and the means and the practical directions for the attainment of the finalmost Beatitude and oneness with Mother.

Rosy effulgence is indicative of being happy and cheerful in all respects. The order has been changed here to be in rhyme with the order of importance.
The idea conveyed by these eight names :
She is Mother(Shree Maataa). She helps Her devotees  by fighting out the battle for Her devotees against six enemies and all other kinds of enemies (Shri Mahaa Raajni). She gives you all that you demand with the liberality of the highest supreme Queen ( Shrimat Sinhaasaneshvari).  Although the supreme Queen, She loves Her devotees as Her children and is always at the beck and call when the heart burns with the desire of meeting Her and She bursts forth (Chidagni-Kunda-Sambhootaa). Her constant work and occupation is about battering and deifying Her devotees (Bhakta-Kaarya-Samuddyataa). She is as bright as millions of suns in matter of illuminating Her devotees. She has four hands( as explained in Preface) indicative of the very simple process of Her liberating the devotees. Finally She constantly keeps the whole universe and , much more Her devotees, bathed in happiness and cheerfulness. Wherever you find joy, happiness and cheerfulness, it is simply proof of a greater pervading of Mother's Grace.

[349]  नित्यक्लिन्ना Nityaklinnaa  - Ever compassionate.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 388

[350]   नित्यतृप्ता Nitya-triptaa  or  Anitya-triptaa अनित्यतृप्ता -  Ever contended or ever dis-contended.

Both these words as also "Mati" are so placed in the text, the one can as well read them with the prefix "A" silent as A-Varadaa, A-Nityatriptaa or A-Mati. Both interpretations are acceptable.

In one sense, She is both elevating and degenerating discriminative faculty and tendency. It is She that is eternal contentedness as also dis-contentedness. She is the merit-driving or sinfulness driving intelligence.

This contrast is well expressed in Sapta-Shati सप्तशती , in Adhyaya अध्याय 4, Shloka श्लोक 5 and Adhyaya अध्याय 11 Shloka श्लोक 5 She, that is peace and prosperity in the homes of sinless and She that is quarrelsomeness and poverty in the homes of the sinful. By Thee, is this universe under an infatuation and  a delusion. When Thou art Pleased , Thou are the conferrer of immediate salvation.


Nityatriptaa नित्यतृप्ता  may in the field of devotion also mean "ever contended with little the devotee does or offers." Or on the other hand Anityatriptaa अनित्यतृप्ता would mean always discontented in matters of Her most sublime love and love return and companionship with Her devotees.


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." ]

MAI-ISM NOTES 46 TO 59

46. The Founder attaches great religious importance to this novelistic idea of a congregation of all ladies, without distinction of caste creed and colour or age, in strict purda without any gents or (even) boys, meeting together in the spirit of religious sisters to have religious discourse and thought-exchanges, prayers, worships, refreshments, prasads, etc., on the Dashera Day. The requirement of the purda has a deep significance to provide a safety against any unusual custom or belief. If that provision is not there, Muslim sisters would stand precluded; so also the Hindu ladies of royal orthodoxies, as also the ladies whose husbands and relations are strictly against their womenfolk mixing freely with men.

47. The Founder has the highest intensity of faith and belief in that, the mere gathering of the said nature pleases Mai, the Universal Mother, most immeasurably and moves Her to shower Her blessings of prosperity peace and bliss on such meetings' attendants and their families. It is not merely an imagination of a religious mind, but a direct command and communication by Maiin unambiguous words in dreams. To the Founder himself, it means a period of great penance and austerity during the immediately preceding Navaratra to move Mai to make the function glorious enough and to propitiate Her for the Grace-showers on the suffering humanity. The apparent inconvenience is there, as gents cannot accompany their wives, as easy frolicsome escorts. However, this preclusion itself is suggestive of the main idea, that the ladies are attending a religious function of sisters. The Founder wishes all ladies to meet as sisters, daughters and mothers to one another, mother and the children folk respectively, and not as wives, would-be-wives for a pets of men in the Mother's temple while meeting for a concentrated prayer, once a yearlasting for not more than three hours at a stretch. The meeting for its maximum efficacy is meant to be a gathering around the Universal Mother of Her softer and more religious-minded and more grace-needing and more home-happiness-responsible daughters, as far as possible temporarily deadened in respect of the sex-poison-mind running, at least for those few hours. The spiritual nectar that can flow and serve as an antidote against all bitterness of different communities and religions can flow only from Mother OF ALL, the Most Merciful Mai, and through propitiation by and intimate mutual relations of, human mothers alone. Such meetings represent the smallest manageable universally-minded sister-folk-world's miniatures and carry their remembrance for years after the event

    If you make one "brother" religious and righteous, he is by himself alone. He may discontinue if there is displeasure at home. If you make one "sister" to be righteous and religious, there follows an army of relations that are in oneness-bondage and blood-bondage with her.

    The right central pivot of any nation for the development of its religiosity, righteousness, culture and civilisation, its virtuousness and piousness, is its womenfolk in general, and the mother-folk in particular. Woman is the maker and dictator of man, through her mysterious and wonderful powers of protection and infatuation.  

    The Founder wishes that there be sisters' social functions of the said type as there were at Poona on 9-10-1932 and at Madras on 1-10-1949, on Dasserah days, periodically, if not annually. 

48. Soon after the Installation on 2-9-1932 and the sisters' social on Dashera day on 9-10-1932, the Founder was deputed to go to Belgaum, Dharwar, etc., for his official duties. He became from now Mai's missionary. In the very train, Mother was worshipped at Belgaum by a huge number of ladies travelling in second class and others in the train, with garlands, sweet-offerings, and Arti. " Prasad " was carried away by people right up to Madras. The Founder was entirely joyful. For persons who can set a liberal value of divinity to religious ideas emotions and actions, worship by a large congregation of ladies in a train was surely an extraordinarily unprecedented event, in rhyming with the sportive and jolly nature of Mother. There is no precedent of the congregation of ladies of all different religions, uniting together to pray to Almighty God as Mother, as in The Poona Sisters' Social. One has never heard of an instance of a Divine worship on a railway station in the train in 2nd class in an unoccupied compartment by the varied (unknown-to-each-other) train-travelers, including especially ladies. 

49. At Belgaum, on return from Dharwar, Hubli, Gadag, the Founder was taken to a great Sanyasin who was a Ganapati-devotee and whose predictions were reported to be wonderfully correct. He would just move his eye from top to toe of the visitor and begin to say a few most meaningful sentences and then would say " Bhago ", (run away). Those few lines would be the sum and substance of the visitor's and questioner's past present and future. The Founder had his turn and the Sanyasin told him, "If you sit till all are finished, I have to tell you a lot, but in strict solitude. In one word, so that you may not remain in suspense, you are the Founder of a new Universal Hinduism-revised religion". The Founder was staggered as to how he knew these matters and he had full one hour's sitting in solitude with the Sanyasin during which he gave several predictions and instructions. In the end, he said "Believe all of my words to be true if within a month from now, you start a religious institution".

    It is Mother's most mysterious and fanciful Divine arrangement that when the last drop of faith and enthusiasm in the devotional-heart-lake is on the point of drying away, when the devotee throws off and cuts off all his cords except the main-most one, with Mai and Mai work, when he vociferates with deepest despondency "From this moment all my connections cease," then Mother moves, gives some convincing proofs of " he being Hers", with some wonderful experiences and fills up again the devotional-heart-lake to the brim. The summer heat of the worldliness makes the last drop to evaporate, but before its complete evaporation, the monsoon of Mother's Grace-showers runs a deluge.

50. On return to Poona, he was pressed by all that had seen Mother's miracle of the sisters' social, to start an institution for universal prayers and lectures on different religions and spreading Mother's conception and worship. In less than a month from the date of the meeting with the Mahatma of Belgaum, a Mother's lodge was started on Chaitra Suda PadvaNavratra Goodi Padva day (27-3-1933). Meetings were held every Sunday with printed hand-bills distributed all over the city and mention thereof in the local papers. It was attended by all religious people, and lectures were mainly about the principal tenets of Devotion, Love, Service, and Surrender, as emphasised supported and preached in different religions.

51. The Founder dealt with Harijans by various lectures and Mother-worship in the"Depressed-class-mission" and at his own place and gave religious teachings to so many youths who began to worship Mother in their own places. 

52. There are so many instances of Mother's Grace that would be read with interest and a few experiences may be narrated here because they go a great deal to show how Mother does help Her devotees-in-distress, most miraculously.

53. A Parsi lady who served as a chair-woman in sisters' social had one night a trouble. Her brother asked her for a sum of Rs. 500 as he was in difficulty. It was Friday night. She said, she would pay for him off his bills amounting to even more than Rs. 500 in arrears, but that she would not give any cash because he was sure to lose that in the race-course the next day. The brother got wrathful and ran in the street shouting, she may read in the papers the next day the result of her refusal. The lady was terrified. How could she run after him? So, in her despair, she shouted for the Founder "Oh my brother? Oh my Mother? Who can save me? Who would bring my brother back?" She decide to go to the Founder, when, in the bungalow itself she saw Mother who told her "My son is just now having a nap after a long exhaustionDon't go and trouble himI will bring your brother back within an hour and a half". The brother who had gone to Bund garden with a determination not to return home, returned. All of them in their happiest mood motored to the Founder and joined in Friday prayers. They narrated this experience to their friends and that added a lot to the popularity of Mai-ism.

54. One of the Mother's devotee's brother at Madras was in some great prosecution-difficulty though he was innocent. He was praying and worshipping as initiated. Once he was so much un-nerved that he decided to run down to Poona to be blessed. He had a dream in which there was a room in which the Founder (whom he had not seen) was sleeping and Mother was patrolling and guarding the Founder. He entered the room. She asked him "Why are you here? What do you want?". He said, "I want the Founder as I am in great difficulty". Said She, " Don't disturb my sonHe is fast asleep after a bitter weeping for me. You want acquittal, is it not? Well, I promise you, you now walk off, let him sleep."

55. The man wrote about the dream to the Founder and asked its meaning and whether he should come down to Poona for blessings. The Founder, as we have already seen of him regarding suspicious nature, asked him the details of the room, direction, things lying, the posture of the Founder, etc., as he saw in the dream. The Founder said to himself, "There are many dreams which are result of one's own thinking, so let me get the details". Details came forth. The Founder had three pillows, under his head; he had a blanket which was brown with black squares. He was sleeping with Mai's picture by his side. These and other details equally tailed/ The Founder said, "You need not come down to Poona, but pray, pray and pray". He was later acquitted.

56. The funniest part of the whole Mai-grace history is that the Founder in spite of so many experiences always remains doubtful. The cause of that is the age in which he is born and the western education. He would say, "Is it not likely that these people create stories? just to please me and increase their own importance?" Two experiences were however very wonderful which his eyes cannot deny. One of them was this.

57. There was plague in Poona. People left the city. The Founder also lived on Toddiwala road. One lady came to him and told him that Mother appeared in Her dream and said, "Those who want to save their families should attend my Friday prayers." The Founder told her, "I have very small space here. Your own desire has materialised itself in the dream." With all reverence, she was a bit wrathful. She spoke words which showed she was severely distressed. "Do you think, Mai? (Mother)? that we are not fit and Mother will not talk to us in the dream and that you can alone have all the monopoly?" "However small we may be for Her Grace, there is no question of worthiness. I tell you, Mother is actually living in your house. If you like, you may test. She is going out at 5 a.mand moves in the garden and returns within a few minutes."

58. The Founder gave the substance of this talk to his cook and his servant and asked them to keep a watch and shout him if they saw Mother. The next morning, both of them, the cook and the servant, were on the keenest watch. At about five, they heard a sound near the door as if someone was unloosing the chain and they saw the door opened and closed quite speedily and the chain swinging and hanging vertically. They ran out, looked all round outside but could see nothing and none. The next morning they reported Founder, "The door chain was loosened and we heard the sound but we could not see anything, so we did not wake you up." The Founder used a lock, kept the key with him. The next night, the cook and servant shouted. The lock was opened and there was the sound of the doors striking freely as if they were broken open most angrily. The Founder ran up. He saw the doors wide open and the lock opened, hanging loose on one side and the chain on the other. He ran in the garden and saw Her just before disappearing. He danced like a madman with joy and composed a poem which is sometimes sung in Mother's Lodge meetings. "Bagan me fool chunan ko jayre meri Maiya." "In the garden, flowers to pluck, goes my Mother." Orders were issued not to close the doors by night or to open them off at 4 a.m. The preceding woman was obeyed. Friday prayers began in a spacious terrace and there was no case of a plague attack in the vast number of families that attended.

59. However, the most wonderful and interesting experience of the Founder was this. One young man who had lost his equilibrium due to his wife's death was in the spiritual service of the Founder, after he was restored to normality. One night he made a very strange statement. He said, "Mother just passed in front of our doors in a royal splendid car and She told me, "you come over with Kakaji (Founder) to the Globe Cinema (in Poona city). I am going there. Bring him without fail. He thinks a religious preacher loses all his austerity and Punya by seeing the CinemaHe needs a relief nowDon't fail." The Founder thought the young man's head had again turned. He thought all his labours of mental recovery on him were lost. He tried to make that man forget but the latter would not leave him. Both went to Globe Cinema. The picture was "Maya Machendra". The other man had absolutely no peace of mind. He would go out of the theater leaving his seat and come in every five minutes till finally, he came in shouting "Mother came just now in the very same car." The Founder was getting nervous in case that man's head became turbulent and wild in the cinema theater itself. Few minutes later, that man shouted, " See, See, See there. She is sitting just in that balcony all alone." The Founder was more than stupefied as he saw Mother there in the balcony all alone on a gem-bedecked easy chairBoth were steadily gazing at Her. After 4 to 5 minutes, they saw Mother getting up most hurriedly. Said the other man, "Kakaji, Mother is going away," and he ran out. The Founder also ran after him. They saw Mother getting into the car with a lightning speed and the car flew off.
