MAI-ISM NOTES 192 TO 194


192. Long periods of despair, with very little work as can be shown as a solid proof of his single-minded occupation with Mother, could not be without hundreds of conflicts.The Founder would be often using the expression " Cart before horse arrangement " of Mother in respect of him. He would be surprised and annoyed  at the inverted arrangement of " First Mother and Motherliness " , and thereafter the world and worldliness. 
He would ask Mother," Why bothering with the wretched and wicked world , even after getting a fair amount Divine Knowledge and Devotion ? " " Why being made to have to break head  with and lower the mental plane  with the world's experience ? "  " where is any longer the need therefor ? " " Why should I be dipped in the worldly rottenness to know what sort of thing  the world is , after having known the source of nectar and having partly sipped the nectar ? " " why cart before the horse ? "
This too was surely  a paradox  for him , and a singularity. People first plunge into worldliness , but once they leave , they leave for ever . In his case, worldliness began to dawn after devotion.

The Founder would make out three possible solutions, in all such cases where highly religious souls are seen  busy with the world and even after knowing the world  as it is in its true colours, after that they have secured God's Grace. 

Firstly, for any high soul, that is to be entrusted with  the work of being a teacher , the B.T. course becomes indispensable however qualified he may be , with other much higher university Degrees. Secondly, the world must be fully known  to its smallest atom  to render impossible any possible slip in future . Thirdly , the devotee can not perfectly and passionately love God  or Mother, unless he reaches the perfection of the conviction  about the worthlessness of the world.  

193. When this question was causing agitation, the Founder had the Mother's Grace of having the Life of Paramahamsa made an offering to him, by a Mai devotee in November 1949 at Madras [ Chennai ] ; and there he found the corroboration ( he read it only then for the first time ).

Paramahamsa too advised " first God attainment and then the world entering and world attendance ." He stated " Bricks and tiles burnt after stamping of the trade mark retain their mark forever ". Said Paramahamsa ,"  If before attaining devotion , you try to mix with the world, you will be upset by dangers, griefs and mortifications ." " The more you dwell on worldly things , the greater becomes your attachment. " A wise man must live in the world , after the attainment of  knowledge  and the Realisation of God. Then alone he remains unaffected by the evils of the world. "

For their most literal meaning, without dilution or stretching the meaning too large , how very unbelievable and yet boldly stated  and boldly repeated ," cart before horse " statements are these !!! And yet, the underlying supreme Truth-essence  give a fitting satisfactory answer to the Founder's perplexing problem. Herein  there is something , which is not of the average Hindus "Everything  is same " type." Everything is same " is for idiots with no subtle sense of appreciating most delicate differences, whose intellect can distinguish "red" from "not red" only, but has no fineness of distinguishing redness of say 80/400th from 81/400th shade. Everything is same for the man whom to everything is merely an intelligent talk for the time being and not an illumination of guidance  in his solid work for achieving a religious progress." Everything is same " is the wisest reconciling expression, when people are ready to draw out their swords.There is however a class of the rarest few  who are nectar cravers, select people even from the known saints and philosopher themselves, who enjoy their nectar sipping all the more on realising the most  delicate differences , just in the same manner as we feel highest joy in snatching over the very same dainty from the dish of our beloved persons. If the difference is not there actually , even then the difference are imagined and created to enjoy the relishfulness. The morsel from one's own dish  and the same of the very same dainty, but from the beloved's dish, are not same things  to some fewest.  What the nectar-cravers enjoy is something else than the dainty itself, unknowable to others.

The Founder says, I am speaking or writing for that class, the rarest few  of nectar cravers to whom " Thy things are dearer than my things ", and not for the people dipped in an infatuation regarding their own things  and a disgust for all other things. 

Don't think there are nectar-cravers of the said type; but it is the highest privilege of the fewest to be in contact with such few. For the rest, let the common things of " Everything is same " , " There is nothing new ", " It is already there ", " We have been knowing it already ", " So many have said in the past", " Our scriptures have said it ", " Our Rishies and Sages and Forefathers  said that thing centuries before ", -  go on in  their perpetual manner. 
The Founder says,"I can not describe my joy of relief on the corroboration by Paramahamsa, with the said "cart before the horse" expression. there is something much deeper in those expressions. They do not mean so much alone as what we already know or conceive."
Most of us,more or less, hear everything, understand nothing, practise still greater nothing and realise yet still greater nothing. How than can there be anything like relishfulness or illumination about the minutest and finest fibres of the weaving ? The relish - bliss - possessed  however find it impossible to remain silent. They do not mind other looking blanks at them.
There is something unusual and even reverse of what we ordinarily believe and what has been passed on to us from the past.

194. The Founder states : Our usual notion about making spiritual progress is perhaps wrong. The idea of a gradual evolution ( the Western Evolutionary theory ) is too much us.We have been generally thinking and believing, we have to struggle with world's temptations , remove our weaknesses, one after another and go ahead. We have to go on becoming better and better, less and less worldly. and more and more Godly and Divine . Our only poor idea is that of a continued labour and struggle as if a religious progress were work of filling some reservoir with pouring of buckets of water therein from a river nearby.Our notion is that of hard-sweating and suffering, and the religious progress being some arduous work , as of a boring a tunnel or excavating a mountain. 

The illumination and the joy proceeded from these " cart before horse " expression of Paramahamsa, in as much as they lead me to one corroboration." Beyond this well-known usually and commonly  known routine, there is an exceptional royal route as well " .Paramahamsa is telling you something  superb and extraordinary, not the very same thing, which so many have said in the past , - some thing much more than what the man with " every thing  is the same " can see.
The joy proceeds from realisation and still further on the corroboration of the realisation. The difference of parrot like knowledge and realisation is there. There, there,there  the difference comes in, which I so hammeringly talking about; and yet few understand me.Two friend disciples go to a guru.The Guru in his usual talks speaks out a certain truth along so many others. One disciple on hearing the same gets so very ecstatic and stands up and begin to dance and revolve himself, being unable to contain his joy, without bodily -relieving moments . The other one has heard the same words, but is looking with a surprise and annoyance at the mad out-of-control joy expression of the other disciple.Says he," What, what, what, such an extra-ordinarily thing did Guru say ? He is tailing the same thing almost daily; and not to him alone; but just see, there are so many of us here ; I don't dance , some many others of us don't dance. What has happened now to this fool ?? "

The Founder feebly tries to explain. The difference is this.  To all men, it is," This" in midst of  thousands of " Thats", some of which are even contradictory to " This "."This" in midst of thousands of "Thats", not unsaid, not unheard, not unknown, not unfamiliar, in cases of all men.In the case of the other man- that particular man- it is  "THIS AND THIS ALONE, NOTHING ELSE, NOTHING BUT THIS , NOT THAT , NOT YON, NOT YONDER ".

When a certain truth stands only by itself, and takes the full possession , when in perfect compatibility of what little-most experience of one already has , one feels a conviction about the said truth, when not  a single one atom of that truth  out of say hundred atoms there of remains over shadowed with the smallest doubtfulness, then there is the ecstatic joy of an unprecedented illumination. That inability of the nerves both mental and physical to contain that joy  results in almost a boisterous joy-madness, which others around are looking at an astonishment and annoyance

Illumination is one thing. Conviction is the next higher thing. Realisation is still higher thing. And corroboration after realisation  is yet a still higher thing.No realisation gives a perfect joy without corroboration. You may dispense with a Guru upto the last end , if you are vehemently against having a Guru , but at that last stage of corroboration, the Guru is indispensable
The Founder explains " conviction " thus. 
We talk of Mother as " Patita Pavani " ( Purifier of the lowest downfallen ) or of God as " Adhama Uddharana ( the Saviour of the most wicked ). Even a child repeated these names. The question of questions is this. a stronger man comes and threatens you with " Is this true ? ". You shiver, you tremble, you get perplexed , you say," We only hear so "," So many have said so in the past "You seek out a way from his clutches, you back out with a weak platitude ." " When so many have said, it is very likely it can not be wrong. God alone knows if it is otherwise ". You hasten your escape ; you get fumbled ; you turn away your eyes from his, you find pretext to be away; you wish to be relieved , you yourself are overpowered with doubts and suspicious . You ask yourself," Am I really right ? or -is it only a parrot-like repetition because so many have said so ? In the end , it may as well be , that you have a sorrowful consciousness of your having accepted a certain statement as truth, just with only the usual " heard mentality " mechanically doing and believing  what others before you have done and believed.  
On the other hand, the realised man stands firm as a rock.He has an adamantine courage or realisation, the conviction of any mother that would boldly say out, with respect to an altogether face-changed son of hers after years. "Yes,  he is my son". That conviction is there because the son is piece and parcel of hers. A certain truth must have similarly formed a piece and parcel of realisation of the realised. That conviction is there , because there is immense suffering  ( as in the case of mother ) as the originator of that conviction.A realised man is a steady batsman. Let any ball come , he has his over-boundary.( If there were no unbearable painfulness in bearing a child , no mother would have loved child . strange expression but true.).
What I am making a cheerful offering of my soul to Paramahamsa for, and what I explain here , is what you have already known   and what I have too already known and written so often about. But the conviction, realisation and corroboration !!! These are certainly superb things. How to explain !!!

Corroboration !!! With greatest exertions of yourself, you have reached Mother's Mansion. You have been  sitting on the very steps of the Mansion. You say about the Palace " This must be the Palace ." But yet it is " must be ".You require some higher and one ahead of you to say," Yes, you are right . This is the Mother's mansion." Till then, the realisation is not perfect.I asked the question and Paramahamsa answers it by saying," Yes, yes, first devotion, first God's Grace -securing, and then the world." Paramahamsa speaks with an emphasis and a boldness of which there is no preceding  parallel. He speaks with the deepest conviction of , an actual realisation of ," Asked, and as soon as asked, granted " - mercifulness of Mother. This emphatic assertion is in greatest rhyming with Mai-ism. Paramahamsa asserts , if not differently, at least more distinctly and definitely than any other " isms " or any other preceding religious teachers.
The Founder states," What an astounding revelation ?? So to say, Paramahamsa dismisses the indispensability ( though welcoming and recognising the usefulness of so many religious requirements and qualifications ), of exertion, exercise, progress, development and all the paraphernalia , which every religion so gloriously speaks about, provided you have Mother's Grace. He has no diffidence or doubt. He does not imagine  a single case of failure. To him, there are no qualifications  which are indispensable  for an aspirant , provided he has an unfathomable love for Mother. 
The Founder sums up thus : The point-blank question is this , which is required to be answered  without fumbling, without conditions imposed , without escape of defense, without provisos  and without hundreds of "Ifs" and "buts". The question is " I have no other qualification. I know only how to die, out of love for my Mother". "  Shall I be saved ?". Paramahamsa says ," Yes ". Mai-Swarup says," Yes ". Mai-ism says," Yes ".  Paramahamsa's " Yes " is entirely unqualified. Paramahamsa's answer is " Look at Me "; " No inferences, but eye-to-eye proof ".  The witness who has actually seen and lived in a certain Palace  with a certain Mai-Queen, stands as a rock, about Mother and Mother's Grace , against all cross currents  and cross-questions. Someone asks Paramahamsa " I don't know Yoga , will that do ?" " I don't know Atma-Parmatma-subtleties, will that do ? " " I have no Sandhya, no temple-going etc., will tat do ?" Paramahamsa gives the boldest answer" Yes, Mother's Grace on your love to die for Her, to die without Her, can dispense with everything ".AND THAT IS MAI-ISM. " If you love Her; you serve Her , you surrender yourself to Her, everything including salvation, is yours." THAT IS MAI-ISM. " Salvation is only a poor-hearted man's goal."
So many have said so in the past, the same thing, but only in a hotch-potch manner , not in the unqualified manner , not without hundreds of " ifs" and "buts " and not without hundreds of diluting and weakening elements about the supreme most Truth. Paramahamsa soars much higher than than the routinism of all religions. He advises" placing the cart before the horse."

The routine is this :" I study engineering. I often fail; but I finally pass. I get happy. I apply for a job and I get a job."I get it because I have passed and have the degree.I get it because I have a more qualifications  than other candidates. All that s well and good !! I also agree and appreciate that must be the routine way of the world.

Paramahamsa  however, in addition to the routine way , refers to the exceptional way. He illuminates the world about the existence of an underground passage , right from the Royal Palace Harem to the Ganges Ghat , unseen and unknown and it must be admitted , unavailable to one and all. Paramahamsa and in his foot-steps , Mai-Swarup and Mai-ism confirm, declare and reveal the existence  of the underground passage.
Says Paramahamsa : " There is some thing much higher than the usual spiritual aspirants'gradual going, step by step, rung by rung , systematically steadily and slowly." " Get Mother's Grace first, and then , go to the world and live. First get the appointment order, as the Executive Engineer of a certain district, by Mother's Grace , by dying for Her; learn your engineering thereafter. Go straight to the office , take over your charge  , take your chair most graciously, all the while as Mother's and with the confidence  of one who is Mother's.  The assistants will manage the whole office most efficiently for you , even if you do not know the spelling of  the word " Engineering " , with every loving reverence  and infatuated obedience to you. ; by Mother's Will and Command , you are the fittest Engineer, none touches your single hair, in matter of your efficiency , safety, repute and peaceful smooth working. " Learn up your engineering after you are anointed  appointed and authorised and declared , by Mother's Supreme-most High Command.
How bold !1 How true !! Although so very exceptional !!! Not the common grass feeding , but nectar-serving !!!

[ 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 189 TO 191

189. To resume the subject, as a parallel to the development of the outer form of the Founder's activities narrated before, it is interesting to note the inner development of his mental changes as he passed through several stages. First, he was ideally a universal-minded mansay a philosopherand a devoteewith absolutely very little of the contact with world and worldlinessHe was made by Motherto pass through the practicalities and actualities of life.

190. From the universal-mindedness, without losing his own personal universal-mindedness, he had to stoop to the greater utilities of a defined religion for all practical training of the people and making them interested in true religiosity. The substance of a religion must be there to churn out religiosity. To make people interested in sweetness, any substance, say, sugar, sugarcane, honey, grape, jelly, jaggery or any such thing has to be most familiarly dealt with. What that substance would in natural course be selected to be, would be the one that people to be dealt with are most familiar with. Because, on leaving Poona, he could not get the outer universal skeleton, he had to choose the most easily available and utilisable vehicle of Hinduism. Not that his universal-mindedness was any the less; and he turned to his own Hinduism. The Universal-minded man took up Hinduism as his vehicle, because he had to deal with Hindus. If he were in midst of Christians, the selected substance for increasing the popular craving for true religiosity would have been Christianity. Even now, the doors of Mai-ism are open to all varied types of religionists. The spirit of the Founder's Universality would take, say, the Christian or Mohamedan colour, even now, if the followers in large wieldable and countable groups belonged to Christianity or Mohomedanism. To understand more clearly, Mai-ism is the sweetness itself or say, the true religiosity itself and not a certain substance or a certain ReligionThe substance is the masculine aspectThe quality or a certain working power of a substance is its feminine aspect. Say, the moon is masculine (not in English) but his bright coolness, Kaumudi, is the feminine aspect. Both are inseparable. You are, say, propitiating the Goddess of Fire, Vanhi-wasini or Jwala-Malini, but you have to make your offerings to the physical fire in your sacrifice-altar. On the other hand, you are doing the latter but you are worshipping the Goddess represented by the Fire and not the altar or the firelogs or the fire-flame. The abstract conception requires and required a concrete substance. The latter happened to be Hinduism as most convenient, easiest, nearest, speediest and widest. The substance however brought its lights as well as shadowsMai-ism in its outer form became Hindulike, although no opportunity was allowed to pass without awakening and maintaining the public consciousness of the requirement of the " Universal-mindedness " as Mai-ism's first true understanding. The abstract conception brought in the substance. The substance brought in the shadowthe shadow brought the Founder face to face with people's darkness and blackness of head and heartignoranceutilisation for selfish ends and exploitation. The Founder was gradually pulled by people to tolerate their actual "below-mark" stage and was dragged to descend from the abstract supreme devotion to the practical work of relieving the distress of people, from advising the Nishkama Bhakti to admitting the Sakama Bhakti, from a general Mai Sadhana to the same for one's own purpose, from people's grateful humility, to their worldly business-tendency and finally, from their fair and honest business attitude, to the worldly natural plane of easy cheating and exploitation even in the realm of Religion.

    The Founder had to descend, step by step, to meet people on their own plane, which was found to be lower and lower as the Founder went deeper and deeper into the bottom layers of people's natural plane. He however persisted because in any casehe was not for abandoning hopes or his lifelong avowed Mai Mission Work.

    A certain orthodox Hindu is extremely anxious, that his favourite celestial cow should not be unhappy after he dies. He knows, none is willing to have her. He starts with the normal selling value of say Rs. 300. He is extremely wishing it should go to a particular house, where alone she can be happy. He goes on lowering his price. He is determined, till finally he agrees to hand over the cow free and even with Rs. 300 on the top. That explains the Founder's whole all-along mentality.

    The more he came into contact with the people, the more disillusioned he became about the real value of the so much tomtommed religiosity of the Hindu Religion. He saw very little of a practical nature beyond a passing liking or a taste, and nothing like love for religion with sacrifice. Religious living did not mean a different mode of actual living. He also saw that even the so-called universal-mindedness itself of many, was on analysis nothing more than a  courteousness, a little tolerance, a little broad vision, a little goodness and a royal talk. That by itself could not stir up the inner soul. In practical life, universal-mindedness was only a negative virtue. It had its value, because with many others the infatuation about their own religion and in some cases even fanaticism was there as a contrast. By itself, the universal-mindedness as he saw, did not mean much constructively, in the actual progress in Religion and Religiosity, The Founder here does not refer to the highest meaning of universality, viz., seeing and treating every soul as one's own self. That is entirely out of question in this world, at least the modern one, with its living based on an out-and-out selfishness, except for some few exceptions who are in the worldbut not of the world. The first descent from the abstract devotion was towards Nishkama Bhakti. The Founder went on being faced with bankruptcies after bankruptciesfrom one surpriseful unhopefulness to another. He could not find universal-mindedness, he could not find revellers in abstract devotion. Going down, he could not meet Sadhaks, who would be for increasing their supernatural accumulated powers for public welfare through mantras, meditations, worships, etc. No AtmadrishtiNo Nishkama BhaktiNot even Sadhana for Loka Kalyana. The average plane was still lower. Religion was found to have some faintest signs of being welcomedonly on the Sakama Bhakti plane. The Founder went down and down and welcomed even the out-and-out Sakama Bhaktas resorting to religion, worship, mantras, etc., for a particular specific object. There too, the Founder's hopes were frustrated. Few took up the devotional or religious permanent colour. People licked away honey and left the dry teeth-trying bread. Founder said to himself, " Well, I am more than satisfied if people remain contacted with Religion, even though that be for clear-cut openly declared specific purposes and only periodically. However the world was found to be shameless enough even there in the lowest requirement, and even feeling grateful to God or Guru was found to be not only absent but out of question and question-barred.

    God and Religion were found to carry no higher value than a stop-cock or a pushcock of a water pipe to be turned or pressed whenever one wanted water.

    The Founder would have considered himself blessed, if he had found the world atleast at that stage of periodical devotion for a specific object. The world however, showed still more wonderful varieties of lower planes. Discontentment underlying demands, and further even wrathfulness on non-fulfilment of demands, so to say, dictated to Mother.

    The Founder permitted himself to be still down-dragged because in any casehe wanted the unwilling horse of the world to drink the celestial waters. He tolerated Religion being made even a matter of business and there too the world most hopelessly failed to be true to its words of recognition even after fulfilment of their specific desires. The introduction of the business element murdered the last remnant of gratefulness.

    The Founder's final conclusion was that he had given a value to the world, which was many times much higher than its real value. The world was found hopelessly poor in the matter of the very first requirements of true religiosity viz., humility and gratefulness. If he had known this true value in 1932, and if it were a matter of his own choice, he would not have dedicated his life to this fool's, simpleton's and mad man's work. But the rub is there : " If it were a matter of his own choice." That is also a part of the usual programme, a stage through which a devotee is taken. It is like the day and night extremely hard work of an I.C.S. as an Assistant Collector, before Collectorship and the kingship of his Collectorate. Before a soul retires permanently, Mother takes out maximum work from him before he is permitted to retire. It is not that the work of keeping the world smoothly-running cannot be done without the said hard work. Mother Herself can do it in an eye's wink. He is made to work, as it were, created for gaining practice and experience, to equip himself for the next higher stage.

    I wish readers may enjoy the simile and laugh with me. All that work is like the Partheshvar Pooja of Lord Shiva. The devotee prepares Partheshvar images from black clay, repeating his mantras etc., so many in a day. he begins after his bath at every dawn, working the whole day. In the evening, after waving the light, he has to drown all images in water, and the water to be poured in the Ganges. Next day, the same thing. Even when he leaves after twenty-one days, there is not a single Partheshvar clay image for even his own children to play. What is the highest surest and most permanent benefit? It is that the Shiva's devotee becomes Shiva-like. It is this innermost understanding that keeps up the perseverance, in spite of every possible failure.

    Once an officer, expert in agriculture, was engaged by a State on a very high pay, to teach the subjects on how to bring forth the best harvest from each field. He most bitterly complained to the Founder about no people coming forth even to hear him. The Founder cool-mindedly said "Don't fret, continue, you are bringing forth best harvest from your own field; by way of your most lucrative pay".  

    This is the Infinite Reservoir of consolation and inspiration at the bottom. It is not the " real improvement of the world " for " work " that necessitates the hard work and change, Mother herself can do in an eye's wink. With all the mercifulness that he can command, the Founder's opinion often formulated itself to be, that the world had gone beyond all possibilities of any improvement and that the only chance left for the world to be more happy was that, possibly its eyes might open as a result of unbearable sufferings. The well-known remedy of walking in the footsteps of the wise was lost to the world. The only path leading to the possibility of improvement was through clouds of calamities and a continuance thereof. New ones gathering before old ones scattered, till the eyes opened with determined action and faithful wisdom. And if that last stage was reached, what else can saints do except to most intensely ever pray for the highest Mercifulness of Mother??

    Just as a down-train going down and down from station to station, on finding no passengers on any station, runs back from the downmost station with the highest speed and with no intermediate stop, to the upmost station, the starting station, so did the Founder often return to his Motherfully laden with richest experience about the world.

    He often earned the benefit of a quietude, on being eased over his dreams of possibilities. The world did not want God, Guru or Religion, there was none waiting on any station-platform for train to carry them further. The Founder was often satisfied with remaining confined in his " Mai Niwas " quieted and religiously occupied with Mother alone.

191. The Founder would be sitting in the Mai Prayer Hall (28 feet by 16 feet) on an Asan (Seat) on the floor (ground in front of his dearest Mother on a pedestal), exactly in square line with the Image. The place has its breezes from South to West, and two tube-lights and two powerful lights are making the place bright enough for the humble devotee to be viewing Mother most minutely at few minutes' intervals. In the Lotus Feet of the Mother have been lying two photographs, one of Paramahamsa with Mai and another of the Founder with Mai. Neither the breezes from South and West vast open spaces would quieten his mind and remove sleeplessness, nor would the brilliant lights give him any illumination and relief in the matter of the darkest despondency and void in his heart. Meditation of Mother would fail to heal up the wounds in the inner chamber of his soul. Ecstasy would be impossible, as now he was no longer a child.

    The Founder would shed hottest tears and most solicitously pray to Mother, to do any one of the two things She pleased. " At least show me some faint phantom of success in my undertakings of Thy work, or, once for all, sweep out the last remnant atom of desire to raise the religiosity of the religion-following world, through Thy simplest Mai-ism". Mother however would do neither.



    The paradoxical position, in the matter of God's attitude, is simply a torture, although a spiritual one. What is the deepest hidden working underneath? It is a play of God or Mother with His or Her dearmost devotees. They live their most intense life with Almighty, but the world as a whole remains practically unchanged, though with a temporary spiritual flood. When the Founder would be tired to the last point, Mother would explain the paradox thus.



    Do you think it is the laying down and explaining certain best recipes of a religion, that can make the world happy? No. Do you think it is the ceaseless effort of understanding of truths, that entitles men to be happy? Do you think the world is unhappy and miserable, without its own evils and sins? No. All is delusion. And yet, know this, the secret of secrets. Enjoyment and Happiness proceeds from Relinquishment, to the extent you throw away things of the world. " Love alone is the Teacher of RelinquishmentService concretises LoveThey become happy who love and serve Me and whom I loveThe claim to be happy finally rests on Love and Service to Me and Minewith devotion and self-surrenderNeither people can change matters nor youWhat is people's highest self-control before Nature's urge from within? And what can your highest effort do unless I move the keys of people's hearts? " And yet the paradoxical position that you are weeping about saves the world and is the keynote of the secret working. "It was true of everyone that was, is, and will be, dearest to Me. There is no human working that permanently helps. It is only My Will. The usefulness of all working of people, or God's dearest devotees proceeds from quite a distant irrelevant invisible thing." To repeat, it is this : " Those who love and serve Me, My dearest and My children, will be saved". "World as a whole will be run on the basis of its collective merit, but individuals will be saved". The rest is all Maya's befooling of mankind, through delusions of authorship, ownership, actorship, etc., and misunderstandings through networks of causes and effects, distinctions and differences, mine and thine, etc.

    " Millions have preached religion. Where is happiness? Millions have mechanically obeyed Divine Laws laid down in scriptures. Where is happiness? The bestower of happiness id I myself. There is nothing like any person's claim thereto in virtue of any well-earned dues or any deservedness."

    " The LoverThe Serverand The Surrenderer to Me or Mine alone wins the highest victory of happiness." The rest is only a temporary mirage-like satisfaction and a passing talk, a word-forth, a speedy revolving of the motor-wheel raised above ground ; the meter would read miles but the motor stands where it has stoodThe Founder would with an electrification jump up from his seat of meditation and run to the Mother's pedestal and lift Her picture and holding Her over his head, would say in highest jubilance " Thenwhat else have I been doing and preaching? ?" His brains in full electric sparks would then cool down with an overpowering sleep.

    He would again have the renewal of passion to continue Mother's work in spite of failures. He would be happy and with his decision, say to himself "Failures are no failures, except in worldly eyes. Every effort itself, by virtue of its being with the purpose of serving Mother and Mother's work, is a victory by itself and in itself."

    His passion for Mother's work would again reach the climax. Something within him like a butterfly, although certain of its death, would again begin hovering round the lights of Mother and Mother's work. His intense and incessant passion for both, would with every laughter make him nullify his former words of tiredness, viz., "This is my last writing, speaking or exerting for Thy Religion". The drunkard says "This is my last drinking." The practical reality is, that under that pretext, every time he is drinking the utmost.

    The Founder would say to Mother "Let me have the last pleasure of having my full unconstrained and unbridled say". " Let me unbreast myself, without caring what the world thinks of me". He would later improve and add " Unless Thou Thyself wishest me to continue serving Thee, Thy Religion and Thy Glory".

    His hopes would again be young enough and, catching Mother in Her highest joyful mood, would gradually creep in with his prayer. " Let my desire of seeing Thy name and the specified name of " JAYA MAI " repeated by thousands, be fulfilled, for that alone can make the world happier".

    He would not permit Mother to throw out his prayer on the ground of prayer's inefficiency or his own undeservedness or the pretext of insufficiency of time of the Founder's length of life. He would add "If not now, just before I return to Thee. If not then, when I am disembodied and am more able and free to do Thy work. If not then, even after several centuries, through Thy any new Selects like Blessed Mai Swarupa Shri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa or Shri Swami Vivekanand (through Thee, Thyself or Thy Lion, Lord Shiva Incarnate).

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." ]

If you wish your path of salvation be made so simple as the Mother's path is. Mother as Mother can not be attained by routine external showy actions and with your mind running to the objects of  their satisfaction.
All external things are simply supplementary to the Internal Love and Devotion with Self-surrender. If there is no Love or Devotion, routine does not help you in anyway except in the most elementary manner of sometimes making you think such a tiresome routine is for. A good thing is ever good. Routine is better than nothing, but routine is often dethroned Real and tat is what is responsible  for degeneration.

(499) बुधार्चिता Budhaarchitaa  -  Worshiped by wise or the enlightened.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 825
The primary one should be the path of hard toiling, which truth for the Maai-ists can not be too much emphasized. It is the practice of virtues . Before you go to devotion or knowledge , you must first have a very solid grounding, by actual practice , of self-control.
The first thing is conviction about the Karmic Law.
Just as hidden seeds shoot forth even after many years as soon as there is a small shower, so good and evil actions, thoughts and emotions bring their pleasures and pains, loves and hates, and bear their fruits sweet or sour, without fail.
