385.What a terrible Power this Maayaa wields over the mortals !!! To begin certain narratives, the Founder had an extremely intense daughterly love for a lady of a high family and education.
386.On his way from Bombay[Mumbai] to Hubli on duty, she had so much devotion for the Founder that she did not mind the doctor's strict instructions not to move from her sick bed and she accompanied her husband from Santa Cruz to see the Founder off at Dadar. It was raining hard and the train did not run.They waited for the next train.That too did not arrive. She was entreated by the Founder to return home , but she would not. She said," I must either take the Founder home or suffer with Founder on the Dadar platform." Waiting for a long period from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. , the Founder than proposed to go to Shiva (Sion)to another devotee and return to Dadar .Founder went there with all. They were welcomed and immediately, food was prepared. The dinning-place was dark .There was electric connection but the lights remained off in the town during daytime. The lady who was more than a daughter, by way of a play, expressed her most obstinate childlike desire," I won't take meals in this darkroom. If you want me to eat, it must be under these electric lights ." Founder endearingly asked not to be so resolute in a matter beyond our human control. Said she," No. I Know there is nothing beyond your control. I am extremely hungry.Every moment that you are obstinately refusing us the light, you are paining me. " Founder said," Alright but I won't trouble Mother after you have finished meals. " The lady with a playful joy agreed. Said Founder," Mother, here is a foolish girl, but most dear to me. She has not cared for her health and illness. Let her be pleased as well, in her resolute obstinacy." As soon as these words were uttered, lights were there , till the whole function was over. At the end, Founder told her ," Should I now permit the light to go?"Founder prayed and dismissed the light and the light disappeared.
387.On one side, we have a host of disbelievers . on the other side, an army of belittlers. We may have to refer to the wonderful power of love this lady wielded over the heart of the Founder as God-daughter and making the Founder grant her any desire. She had a friend in Baroda , a high officer who was most severely demoted , say from a pay of Rs. 600 to Rs. 300 and from the position of a big officer to a small assistant.
This lady saw him at a saint's place in the most humiliated plight regarding his standard of living etc. The reason was explained. The lady was in highest sublime mood and she said,"I am the daughter of Supreme Mother in human form who can do anything and who can not refuse me anything. " She returned from Baroda and one night she was with the Founder eating away his brains , asking for a boon. Founder would not yield. Said he, I must know what you want. She began gradually to say little things and by pieces told the whole story. Founder did not yield till 3 a.m. and then he promised ," Alright Mother will see that he is reinstated within a month. Call him here." This episode is previously referred to as a case of Mother's vision in Baroda.The whole question was reopened after every hope was dead and gone , a long time having already lapsed. He was reinstated.It was wonder of wonders , but the greater wonder was this. That man wrote a letter to the lady which crossed the lady's letter to him and it said," Last night, I saw a big flash in my sleeping room which gradually spread itself and become less dazzling and I saw therein Mother and she said," Leave off all your worry. I have promised your lady friend in Bombay that i will reinstate you within a month and I shall make my promise good. The officer had absolutely no Mai relations or Mai talk with Founder before the event.
388.Here, a little bit of spiritual and highly subtle talk. The Founder had varied experiences through this lady, of a type unprecedented. Once , that lady, in a theoretical way of Hindu mind, told to the Founder ," You must learn Praanaayaam and Yoga ". Founder said," Have you lost your senses?"With so much experiences , you can't understand the greatness of devotion?" Alright , please yourself.Mother will show you that what a devotee can do without a praanaayaam and a yoga and a samaadhi." He went away leaving her house courteously but sorrowfully saying to himself," These people have no idea of the powers , that a devotee who has a personal relationship with God has."
Some half hour an hour passed since he left..The lady began to see everywhere in her bungalow, in every corner, in every room , in every sofa and in every chair Mother, Mother and Mother , in green saree. She got immediately afraid.
She now became fully alive to the rather " insulting " nature.She thought Mother showed her that the finalmost thing to be achieved is seeing God everywhere and that , She or her devotee can do , at a simple desire , just at a snip of fingers. She ran to the adjoining bungalow where Founder was residing , begged pardon and took him back to her place , to give his most favorite dish of extremely pungent butter fried , bakery bread, and mango pickles.
389. Yes, a very subtle spiritual point, Founder thought to himself. Was, what he and all had been thinking till now, wrong? The lady would not do any worship, would not do any mantras, would not offer any offerings to Mother's picture. She would not wave the Arti. The only thing she had was the faith of the highest order . Quite a modern lady of luxurious living; however; like a child of ten to twelve years (she so appeared to the Founder), she would believe what was once promised by Founder , can never remain unfulfilled.
390.She had so many experiences; so also the Founder. When her son failed in matric, she came forth ."How can my son fail when you have promised??" And the boy's name ( as far as the Founder remembers, two sons at a time)appeared in the supplementary list.
391. Her husband was ill and sating at Juhu in a rich bungalow. She would take the Founder from Tagore Road to Juhu and get his blessings on him and she would see him off at the station for Founder to catch his train to go to his office. Doctor said, he will take three months to recover. She told Founder<" I can't tolerate this delay. You are cruel. If you heartily pray, the illness would disappear."The Founder was made to promise that he would see that her husband attains his office on next Friday which meant less than a week.All said," If this proves true," They will be Mai-ists for ever.Said Founder,not knowing his own powers ," All right?? I promise, but don't blame me." On Friday he was ready and the Founder took him to his office . It was a wonder of wonders. The Founder has been all along , dealt with this, by the world, with a promise to be Mai-ist for ever. His powers on believing such promise grew super-natural. Now, that has the experience of the world full of cheating, he neither believes the promise , nor do his supernatural powers work to turn everything , nor does he think himself justified in troubling Mother.

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." ]
