401. How very dangerous this teaching of the Supreme Truth without Adhikaar is ?? At Madras [ Chennai ] , in 1949, I had an extremely strong Vedaantist who argued with me for three days, 3 to 4 hours daily. He was so very learned , he came with scriptural books and quotations . So to say, after scriptural controversy , I was much tired .I was at my wits' ends. On the fourth day, I finished admitting practically my defeat. I told him," I feel, I can not convince you by all arguments and scriptural quotations. I own my defeat.Tomorrow you come here with an agreement, that you have transferred all your property to me. I am not different from you. There are no two souls and this in only a question of transferring matter. " He laughed outright. He said," That thing is quite apart. That is not relevant. That has nothing to do with "philosophy". He stood up and never turned up again.

402. Unless you have reached a particular stage, or unless you say at the outset, that this is only a piece of philosophy, which is not only ennobling but making you strong to be the master of universe and that is one of several methods in which the mind can be trained  to be nearer God , the practical result for mere worldly man, is an Infinity of positive and plus variety being mistaken to be the other Infinity of negative and minus variety and that often turns to be an irresponsible swollen headed creature.  
Why such Vedaantists' " that thing apart, no relevancy, nothing to do " etc at the end ?? Are you telling us , some Arabian night story ?? A king can't live without air water and food, just as  poor beggar. Has the later therefore to go on keeping his head swollen and shouting " I am same as king?"Let people reach that stage  after " Oh God, I am Thine." Only after " You are mine" and " I am Thine", the stage of "I and Thou are one " must come.Let that "I" also be eliminated, after the consciousness as " I am nothing" is eliminated. If after that stage , such a realised man ( it can only by way of  accidental ejaculation) says," I am God", that has some meaning. Just think for few minutes deeply. How can one who has come to a conviction  that there is nothing but God, speak "I am God"? To whom is he talking ? Does the talked-to not know that? Except in lunatic homes have you heard any man talking in full solitude of four walls " My name is so and so."?
Although the supremacy of " I am God " is not denied, the world will be happier  by being taught " Thou art God." Just look at the ugly repulsive viciousness stamped face of any hopeless man speaking," I am God.". When his moral character, self-control, sacrifice, service etc. are all big ciphers , that expression in not only a despicability but a blasphemy.  It carries both him and his Guru to hell. Let the speaker of "I am God" prove his Godhood by reviving a killed bug or fly. Never forget that expression is true in a particular sense only and at a particular finished stage only. Let "Thou art God" be more efficiently taught to world, already led astray  with hundreds of Vedantik and other delusions.  
403.Surely , such supreme truth should not be lost to the world. We know so many things (and have to know) in advance. The preachers of the supreme Truth must however be extremely careful , that little knowledge does not prove dangerous.That could best be done by a thorough treatment , not only the supreme truth but also abuses that half-understood or mis-understood Truth leads to. A certain invaluable medicine which would , in certain cases , save the life of a dying man , would act poisonously for another. Such medicine should be labelled and preserved in a close cupboard with a caution ," To be administered by Doctors only."
Why should you (the Adwaitist) leave it to your opponents to humble you down with?? You remain silent , because you have not before you , the picture of the suffering of the world , on its abuse.You are swimming in the joy and that of your carrying away the palm. If you are true Adwaitist, with whom you are fighting , calling him a Dwaitist ?? Adwaitism is an Ideal, though highest and not a fact to be exploited in your worldly dealings.
404. Premature knowledge of this Finalmost Truth leads to a mental deranged condition of burning down one's cottage , on learning that a rich millionaire  relative of your is on death bed and he is thinking of making you as his heir.  To give another instance, a poor man's son has passed his I.C.S. examination. The affectionate boy wrote to his father ," I ma now able to earn enough for the whole family . You resign your post. you have suffered too much for us. " The father resigned and the streamer carrying the son  sank. The father too in anguish committed suicide and the whole family in the fullest lamentation went to rot in a poor house.

405. Mai-ism says," Nothing is unreal- Creator and Creation, happiness and misery, heaven and hell, deities and human beings , obedience and dis-obedience  to the Divine Law. So long as the soul has any relation with bodies and so long as one is affected even to the slightest extent physically mentally or spiritually , these differences do exist and are not unreal. No illusion of Adwaitism and no dancing.Practically, every one is Dwaitist, so long as he has a body, mind heart and soul. That how I believe . I may be wrong.
There is no illusion or unreality about the Universe  which is managed by Mother with the highest Perfection,Justice , Law and Order, as Power and Love.The realisation of unreality of the universe  does come in the end to some few blessed souls , but premature prattling about unreality  has been extremely dangerous.  

406.The Founder has so many learned persons coming to him and expressing their great life complexities as a result of jumbled up beliefs of Dwaitism and Adwaitism , and he has ruthlessly to tell them  in harsh words," Don't be at one moment Dwaitist  and at another Adwaitist ." A diamond is the same thing as a coal , but to the chemist only, and not to the jeweler or a coal-shop keeper or even to the whole world." You are for taking away another's diamond  and a returning a piece of coal and you bring in the argument of sameness . As soon as you resort to that theory , it is as the very first requirement presumed, that you are on a much higher stage  and you would not be murmuring about your penny worth worldly matters of little discomforts , inconveniences , injustice s, etc.  and weeping like this. How can God be weeping  f or a five rupee note lost , or a child being little indisposed, or a little worry or sorrowful face of his wife for not taking her to a cinema?? Have you no commonsense to see that you are no God ?? 
If you claim to have commonsense and yet persist, then your definition of God  must be hopelessly poor. Don't translate Brahma or God as Ishvar. If you want yo covey that highest truth, please use the guarded language ." God resides in every one of us." " We are all included in God." Please don't say," We are Gods." Say," God is Life." "God is consciousness"."God is everywhere." That is the wisest understanding." God is in every one of us." is only a derived truth and a corollary. "God is the creator and disposer of everything " is also  simple idea. But this idea of " We are Gods" is not only senseless but even mischievous.
The Founder has a peculiar trait. He does not like that shortening of truths, which creates misunderstanding, Start thinking from fundamentals ; no thumb rules; they mislead and keep you in delusion forever , once you commit a slight error. Every being and every thing is manifestation of God  " - that is alright. But let not that jargon of " I am God, You are God he is God continue."
There are men and women,Shall we introduce the distinction as Gods and Goddesses .Or, shall we do away with sex morality ? There are again animals. Is there no God in them? Shall we not call a tiger or alligator a God ? Shall we happily as God's ,as Gods , embrace them in a forest or a river ? Well again,  men are of  a conflicting and contradictory nature . Is God also a conglomerate of contradictions ?We shall have to create a new language  to explain and world's working in terms of " God " . First thing necessary would be to make  enumeration  of innumerable Gods. Some God's will be in Mother's womb and some God's will be die of abortion.How can we finish our census?

Why not come to fundamentals ?? What is the object you want to achieve , by saying " every one is God" ??
Why not come straight to requirement, and stop at that.?/ " You make no distinction between man and man , that will cause misery to anyone and add misery in the world", " Love any other being and serve him as your self". " Consider him to be like your own self ", "Try your best to forget every harmful difference you and any other man."- all these teachings are sensible enough.
If, in the practical life , we can not consider our parents, wife, sisters. etc. exactly as our own self , if brother fights and husband and wife estrangement requires big divorce courts , how far is there any sincerity in your followers saying "Yes Master!!!  I consider everyone of the world as myself, because God resides in everyone and everyone is God."  

Let us then come to a more practical fundamental understanding. Mai-ism says, all human beings are Mother's children. The objection of "conflict and contradictions and variance and bitterness " an d and the census difficulty in the theory of "Everyone is God"disappears .We actually find sisters and brothers at variance in the world.
If I am God and he is God , what is wrong in my swallowing his property ? There is no answer. You have to fumble, coming to the theory of fraternity . If one asks," Why? why should I share my happiness, with any other man??" No answer. You can only denounce the man saying,"You are a mean and selfish fellow." That is however no answer.
Mai-ism says the simple st thing ," You be good, loving and serving others , because Mother Herself is pleased thereby and She will make you happy." " For your own happiness, protection and escape from misery , you love and serve others." Am I not saying what in substance  every one knows and understands?? Then, where is my strength?Try to relish it in the subtle-most manner. First thing is the idea of Motherhood itself. It is the daily experience of everyone that a mother is pleased on serving her children. But the greater strength proceeds from the fact  that love and service and universality are the very first words of Mai-istic commandments, with highest importance given thereto. That, and universality makes the whole difference.  
The Founder says," I simply wonder, how the world can't understand the difference of  a big bunch of six hundred keys given to you to open six treasuries , and those six keys alone by themselves. Just practically try. You will throw away the bunch most impatiently and you will remain without treasures.
On the top of everything, what the world needs today is Love and Service , Devotion and Self surrender,  with a Universal mindedness. The first two commandments , two alone, are sufficient to make you   fairly happy and make the world happy , at least here. Be honest, take up the daily dairy or even the whole life of reputed and labelled religious man and just ascertain for yourself  how much part does Universality, Love and Service play therein. 



[ 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." ]
