408. Returning to the Founder's daily diet-like subject of deep thinking over religious experiences , to form his own conclusions, the Founder can't be satisfied," If it is all a question of one's own will, why does any one need even the Guru?? Why can one not perfect one's own powers, by considering one self as Mother or God??"
Founder decided perhaps , for development of one's muscles, etc. a big mirror is indispensable .Guru may do nothing, but he is indispensable.It is that clay image of Guru Drona द्रोण which made the hunter powerful enough to defeat Arjuna अर्जुन .

409. For sometime, though not with full seriousness, he began to think about "The theory of Guru Vaakya Sidddhi गुरू वाक्य सिध्दी ." It meant this," If you have a faith that your Guru is God and simply go on pleasing him , you need not have the same views and beliefs and living as his or as he advises,. You need not be obeying .Guru must be loving you  and very generally wishing the desires be fulfilled , without any special effort or concentration or prayer to Mother , on the part of the disciple. Guru's promise and your faith that his promise will not go unfulfilled , are enough for any worldly success. " That is what it comes to , although we may fully believe  the theory to be flaw-ful some where .One more slip and it leads us to western semi-atheistic theory of "Individual Will Power."
Founder did feel there was some flaw, somewhere. This theory, so to say, dispensed with God and Religion and even the need of a man-to-man happy relationship. Where  was the flaw?? The Founder constantly tried to locate the flaw. The flaw was detected one day. It is this, the day due to some reason or another , the idea of Godhood in Guru disappears, the whole fabric collapses; and that is most natural, as any Guru is after all, a human being. Such borrowed religiosity is only quite a temporary phase in life, like some Abu Hasan being made an Emperor for one day, the next day he is again the beggar in the street .Like the heavenly child of Love , Religiosity also comes and goes at it wills. One can not give any satisfactory explanation for its coming or going.In some cases , the Founder has seen there is a huge religious  wave of irresistible force due to  a strong placatory  or prarabdha प्रारब्ध  influence. It is temporary and persons again revert to their natural plane with a strong reaction.

410.It is therefore that God and Guru both should be worshipped and revered respectively. Guru without God is nothing God without guru is nothing, even though Guru is only an infinitesimal part of God.Guru is Mother and God is Father  and the child needs them both.The whole world is manageable by Father , but Father never refuses Mother's desire.  
This in , Founder's opinion , is an extremely important Truth ," God ans Guru , neither God alone nor Guru alone ," The Founder has seen many instances of the climax of the miraculousness of the Will Power , as also the bursting of the bubble in less than a moment as soon as the higher power of God says,"Enough now of this nonsense and human folly of entirely ignoring Me."

411. Founder says," To the worldly man as also to the most religious but routine man, there is nothing worth thinking about , in the divine plan  regarding arrangement in the relationship of any two persons. On moment, any two persons are pulling on well.Another moment, they don't pull on. What is there to be thought about??This subject is however extremely deep , deeper than all the meanings of the known shlokas of various scriptures. It is called  YOGAANUYOGA योगानुयोग , in religious language ," Actual union or happening in obedience to the pre-ordained union or happening ", The truth, as Founder puts, is this :
Leave people of the usual mass, eat-drink and be-marry-mentality, when we come to the details of higher relations ; it is an unfathomable Divine arrangement that any persons live together almost as inseparable , so long as God Almighty desires them to learn  certain lessons from each other .The moment the lessons are learnt , without any reason worth the name , the certain supreme indescribable attraction -  an attraction which could not be substituted  or evaded , most speedily sublimates and evaporates, just as some solids become gases  without liquefaction.

412.Mother's ways are most mysterious. None has been able to fathom and none shall be. Best scientists have declared their inability .The world has before its eyes, what little thing comes forth to light through the discover of the Science , but the world never once considers  how vast is the unknownness of  things , and it gets swollen-headed, as it has fathomed  the whole mystery of the universe - working , and being to dance most boisterously.
The more we go deep , the greater becomes the fright of mysteriousness , till we come to conclude "Man is only Ignorance and Inability  .All tall talks of vices and virtues, and man being the architect of his own fortune vanish in the air. You can simply explain away failures, but not create a guarantee of success. The world totters before the Divine Will  of Some Power of unimaginable. Hoe far does our saying, such and such action will unfailingly  to such and such action, stand finally true, in our daily life ?? ( We are not talking of scientific physical truths here.)
Study life.We often get a reward for nothing and it is undeserved. on the other hand  we get punishment when we deserve to be rewarded. We strive hard to do or get a thing , we can't do or don't get it. On the other hand , we do get things  which we never strived for.
Does this not suggest , that there is some Higher Power which decides matters and governs us!! Does an action of the same nature lead invariably  to the result of the same nature??  No.
How many complications are there , to render one action possible , efficacious or otherwise ? How many factors are under your control? How many slips? Who is then the Actor?? Who deserves credit for certain result? Who decides what should be the result? and who gives it ??

413. Mai-ism says," Don't be a curiosity-seeker and  questioner , in the matter of mysteries  beyond your limitations. The only thing practically possible is attributing what can't be understood or solved, to Mother's Divine Will.  Subordinate your intellect to Divine Faith.Prefer to be over-powered  with mother's Glory and Mercy, to being humiliated in your vain efforts with your disappointment and God's displeasure.
Be ready to be taught , with the firmness of humility and duty , to walk in the Divine Path.Mother Herself will reveal you ,as you advance ,as much of the secret as is necessary and beneficial to you  for your further progress towards Her. Whom She selects , that person alone can know and understand the secret and that too only a fragment.
The best answer to all various doubts and questions is to tie down your mind (she-monkey) to the Lotus Feet of Mother , and drown her in an opium doze of devotion. If it were possible to learn  the universe-ruling mysteries Mother would not have been called Incomprehensible and unspeakable Almighty.
The mystery has to be learnt in the language of silence by the Guru. You can rise above the imperfection of being troubled with doubtfulness and attain a stage , where the mind does not leave its bliss  to invite uneasiness under doubts. That is the Real Stage.That is the Real Substance  and that is the permanent work to be done. No answers originated and obtained from the mental plane will give you permanent satisfaction.



[ 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." ]
