MAI-ISM NOTES 225 TO 233





225. Unbelievably, events took place as if Mother was arranging for the finance.One rich lady of Bombay [Mumbai] who attended Mother's Lodge meetings and came to the Founder whenever he used to go to Bombay from Poona or Hubli, had her husband on deathbed. The Founder was called for. He went from Hubli to Bombay , prayed and gave every instruction and a daily programme of mental repetition, worship, devotion, spiritualised waters and medicines etc.He was told by a most reliable responsible nearest relative that if the husband survived , Rs 5000/- were to be spent in charity for his recovery. The Founder had absolutely no idea of the juggleries of the world even at that stage after fifty-five. Neither any single word was spoken about any other religious agencies  of a spiritual  devotional or psychic cure working towards the life-saving end , nor was absolutely anything like that heard. The Founder worked day and night  , devoting two to three hours every night between 12 to 3 A.M. and the least hope for result was there , by Mother's special grace. what can be greater reason than the lady's letter that by Mother's Grace the husband was alright and that she would not forget to make a handsome charity to Mother's cause, for the Founder to presume that he was sure to get Rs 5000/- on the husband's full recovery ??

226. The Founder was extremely  enthusiastic on getting her letter of assurance  about the complete cure. He purchased a plot of 12 Gunthas immediately in Hubli for Rs 2000/-. The founder has given his own ways of thinking. he is feverishly impatient about one point.If anything good or beneficial happens and if one is saved through Mother's Grace, he is counting moments between the information or the knowledge of such happening  and his own  or others' thanksgiving . Somehow he believes in extreme promptness in the matter of thanksgiving and similarly handing over Mother's dues  and crediting Mother's dues  received to the Mother's cause.He attaches the highest importance  to this rule of conduct or practice. He himself believes, a deity's debt is a dire disease  and a doctor's devil.He can't sleep over. If anything happened , for instance, in office which improved his position , he would be first purchasing worshiping materials on the way home , will first worship Mother and thereafter inform home-people he has been promoted to a higher grade. Founder believes that for every moment lapsing between a good-luck and thanksgiving , a man is an extremely heavy loser.he is without the protection of Mother's steel armour. He is with his breast exposed to the enemy's bullet.

227.Founder's experiences are very interesting and even funny. He was once travelling from Belguam to Nipani in a bus. But would have several halts on the long way. just after the bus started from a halt, the Founder saw someone selling jasmine flowers in abundance . he asked bus driver to stop for few minute s as he wanted to purchase those beautiful flowers  for his Mother to worship with.  the driver said he won't. Founder explained  to him the position. " I ma no ordinary routine worshipper. , If you don't you will find your bus can't go  after sometime , you shall have to bring the bus back to this place." The swollen headed chauffeur scornfully laughed. After some 4 to 6 furlongs , the machine went wrong and in spite of all remedies could not proceed . The passengers all got exasperated due to the delay. Said the Founder," I can make it run. You promise that you will take me back to those  jasmine flowers  and then on return  you may drive fast enough  to make up the whole time , because I am also extremely anxious  to worship my Mother  in the Nipani Travelers Bunglow, as worship is overdue.The chauffeur with a grim face agreed . Said Founder," Well than, be all on your seat. said he in his childlike way,"  Mother, see, see, the chauffeur  has agreed to go back.Don't you want to be worshipped  with beautiful jasmine flowers  ? I will purchase the whole basket.I will worship Thee as soon as I reach.It is getting late.Now don't make delay. ." Said he to the chauffeur ," Start. "

The motor immediately, to the greatest  joyful surprise of all, worked up. Founder purchased the whole basket and reached the Travellers Bungalow in time and worshipped his Mother with every endearment and grandeur. He satisfied his principle of promptitude.

228. Once you have established relationship with Mother, it is your choice to set up standard of give and take, promptitude and postponement. Mother's speed to your call will depend  upon intensity and impatience with which you offer your thanksgiving.Mother accepts and adopts standard which you lay down and accept, for the same relationship.
Let one not be fortunate enough to have Love in heart : But , service ?? The sense of duty , responsibility, conscientiousness , promptness and the feeling of gratefulness ? these things any man can command  as quite an ordinary behaviour  of gratefulness, goodness and faithfulness. Neither the nurse loves her patient nor a shop-keeper love his customers , nor a debtor his creditor.It is pure and simple honesty and virtuous side of behaviour of any man, even though irreligious and love-less. If one can't love, he can atleast serve. if he can't serve , he can atleast be grateful.
It is, to say the least, serving one's own interest; to see that the connection once given is not cut off.Every wise man must have before his mind, while dealing with religious matters forces  and Divine aid , this fact viz. that such relations are quite delicate and of the heart, and therefore extremely tender as a flower , fragile like a glass and quickly falling from an invaluableness  to  valuelessness as a pearl. Further, we remain in entirely dark as to when Mother's Grace is withdrawn and we left in delusion  without the continuous steel-protection of Mother.

229. In less than a week since the time he had the information from the lady, he got everything with every care not to loose a single moment. The deed was registered in no time.The land was demarcated. Hubali citizens were extremely glad as Hubli was to be the home of another's saint's Ashram after the Shiva Avatar Swami Siddharudha. The founder made the jubilant declaration to all concerned. The quickness with which the cure take place , the richness of the donation of Rs. 5000, the opening of this money avenue so very quickly , after he convinced the idea of having a Mai Niwas, and the prompt availability of the land and still quicker registration , all things within less than a month.( all this process in Bombay took , nearly three years., made the Founder more than jubilant and flying in the air of imagination about mother's own will in  a matter of the  construction of the Mai Niwas , the future of Mai-ism and its glorious and widespread success.

230.As a grand dashing from air-plane, however, the charity did not come forth. On the other hand  reports were heard that the handsome charities were made  at several quarters.

There were letters from Bombay and Ahmedabad regarding great sorrow  on fixing the permanent abode at an entirely foreign place, hundreds of miles away from the Founder's home. All pressed the Founder to relinquish  the idea.One day the Founder had a money order  of rupees Twenty five , with an endorsement in the coupon to the purport that the amount was sent by way of recognition  of Mother's Grace for the husband's recovery.
The Founder had paid Rs. 1000 ( from his own purse ) to the Vendor and Rs. 1000 more had to be paid . the Founder's sorrowfulness and more than that , the awkward position in which he was put by having to find Rs.1000, may be better imagined than described.

231. Just then, an extremely liberal minded , practically a relative , though of another cast , was staying with the Founder ,as his wife  ( who was like a daughter to the Founder ) was suffering from Tuberculosis.
The gentleman of an extremely straight forward mood and of a liberal heart had some experience of the Founder's miraculous powers. he had appeared for an examination , the number of successful candidates of which would not be more than a few  He had no hope. He was more or less a proto type  of the Founder in the matter of immediate thanks giving and payment and even payment in advance  to Mother's cause.The first thing he did on finding that  he was not to pass, was to inform the Founder about it and pray.To his greatest astonishment, he passed with narrowest escape. He was now a big man.His wife was declared to be suffering from T.B. He asked Founder at Hubli his advice . Both Founder and this devotee would deal  with the matters by telegrams, worded lavishly without any calculating mind. Founder is extremely profuse in that matter. He would word his telegrams as he would be writing a note.
The devotee inquired ," S.S.L. suffering from T.B. what do you advice ? Meeraj or Deolali ?". Founder replied," If you have faith in Mother , neither Meeraj nor Deolali but Hubli ."The devotee took the Founder at his word , cancelled all his programmes and went straight to Hubli.

232.This devotee with his wife and a daughter were present with the Founder when that Money -Order of Rs. 25 was received. They could see Founder's eyes wet with tears . On their repeated pressure , the facts had to be explained. The devotee got up, went to his room and return with his cheque book . Said he," Kakaji ? don't be sorry . here you are ". He wrote out Rs. 1000 cheque in Founder's name. Founder was more than liquefied. Said he with joyful tears ," Mother Bless you my children. He turned with a forcefulness to Mother and began to speak in loud words. " Don't you see difference between men and men ? Remove this T.B. forthwith immediately. Now and Now." Founder closed his eyes and after a few minutes told them " Mother has been pleased to take away your T.B.You now proceed to Bombay and get your re-examination." said Founder," just as you tore off my anxiety with the cheque , so has Mother too torn off your calamity of the fell disease." The couple started the next day  with greatest joy. Get the lady examined, she had no T.B.  T.B. was gone forever.

233.The couple returned to Hubli. Both of them had ascetic's mentality. They proposed that the Founder should stay permanently in Bombay and they would take care of him for his whole life as an old saintly parent, as " Mai " in human form. Founder was given a popular name of " Mai Kaka ". this devotee proposed with all his heart that a plot of 1600 square yards be purchased in Santa Cruz which should be enough for two bungalows.the front one for the Founder and the rear one for the devotee. A plot was available just below the wireless station  on Saraswati Road and with an extreme influence  and zeal of the said devotee brother and of another equally devoted sister , a plot was purchased. The Founder was in position to pay off an advance Rs. 1000 for the Bombay plot. He was eager to see how matters were further  arranged by Mother.  
He was destined and for only a small hut of matting and bamboos, if nothing better can come forth  and be managed, just like kachcha sheds which usually Bavajis have , Rs. 5000 which he can spare for himself were enough.He had the do or die unflinching and unyielding resoluteness of having any abode  anywhere where he can stay with Mother  in every solitude and continue Mother's work.


TO BE CONTINUED IN THE NEXT POST ........

[ 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." ]
