Start your progress from the very first alphabet. Even at sixty, feel pleasure in telling your Guru ," I have reduced the number of lies in a day from hundred to eighty." Feel pleasure in saying to your Guru," Whenever any beggar came to my door , I used to run , to beat or to abuse him .Today, God knows what happened, but I gave him a piece of bread. " Train up your mind to feel pleasure in the very fact that , you are becoming better and better, does not matter at what stage you are .You will have someday the race-won day. Let your joy be in the increase of your accelerating speed of progress does not matter where you are actually standing today , in contrast with others around.
444. The Guru has to be patiently train his disciple to reduce his wants. It is the shishya who has to be brought to a stage when he wants least. The Guru has not to intimate him with irreligiosity , in respect of his natural desire of demanding minimum requirements. That does not mend matters.Do not be simply gagging the mouth when it goes to about a demand , but change him, transmute him,slowly but steadily, so that the demanding tendency may itself automatically cease or at least get lessened .That is the only correct way of looking at things for both disciple and the Guru.
445.It is not very easy to be "desireless", as some inexperienced modernised swollen-headed persons think.Remove all the evils of hypocrisy and you see the heart full of insatiable desires in terms of millions. It serves the purpose of both the teacher and the taught to keep mum over this most agitating factor of human life . The disciple , by not letting the Guru know what he really is , get all the respect of a high class extremely religious devotional and Gyani soul.The teacher is anxious to keep as great distance as possible and takes it for granted that everything is heavenly and working smoothly with ceremonious question and a respectful answer, as to the pretty well going on about everything.
It is "desirelessness" were such an easy thing (which is not true even for highest souls just near the stage of salvation ), why should Dhruva have asked for the kingdom of his father??When God Himself asked him to have any boon?? Salvation -granting even by God would have been useless until desirelessness was completely secured.
446.Mai-ism says, let the gas light lamp automatically go less and less burning , with the consumption of the oil.Let it disappear a a result of the last drop of oil being over , and not by your forceful switching off.Let it be a most natural and spontaneous process.The engine itself must be creating least smoke and emitting least useless water.The root must get thinner and thinner and not the symptoms. The fever must go and not simply the temperature of the body. And when that is sought , surely it becomes task of a task of extreme patience and perseverance. Look for the element of permanence in the apparent improvement.Your not running because of your desires ,is not enough ; there should be no inward agitation No inward agitation is not enough there should be no desire itself. .With these ways of belief , Mai-ism is not at all turning up its noes , whenever an innocent harmless legitimate legal and moral desire is sought to be fulfilled, by Mother's Grace. It is not only permissible but even welcome , because its fulfilment will relieve you of so much strain and stress and enable you to pursue your religious exertions more cheerfully and wholeheartedly.
Mother or Mai is therefor"Bhukti Mukti Pradaayini" ( Giver of Salvation and also Enjoyment of moral and legitimate desires). Everything is only relatively better or worse ; and each case has to be judged on its own merits .
There are men and men, and circumstances and circumstances. Some people get more ad more unnerved as we point them out their defects; others get more and more improved being put to their mettle. A boy needs a mother during sickness , but a father must be there to cane him while pelting stones at neighbour's glass houses .The Founder had also the experience of Mother's over fondled self-indulging children. Mother has an over flowing love , which makes Her sacrifice-ful against the throes due to babies; then comes an infatuation which makes her bear bear harassment. Then she tolerates , with hope in the child's purposeful mischief ceasing , on attaining age of discretion.Mother continues to be mother so long as She has a hope of improvement.The She becomes temporarily father , but in the end father is father and mother is mother. The final story end is that the Mother ignores , forgives and forget , which the Father does not so very easily and not to that extent of pity and mercifulness, compassion and condescension.
Mai-ism starts teaching you from the very alphabets. You might have got proficiency in so many matters , but nothing is to be taken for granted. No exemption, you have to pass through every test .if you are already ripened, no time is lost in waiting , but no wrong assumption.Just make out a complete formula of yourself. Nothing matters , provided you have rightly analysed yourself and decided to be better and better through God's and Guru's Grace. Highest Gurus are hard to find , but your severe and intense prayer to Mother is sure to get you your Guru, at least for the particular stage you are in. The different between a Saint and a Guru must be constantly be before the mind of aspirant.A Guru is one who guides you in every detail of your living in the religious realm, one in whom you confide, one to whom you surrender yourself with the confession of all the facts and defects of your life and living.
Hold on to your God and hold on to your Guru , with the tightest grip, come what may; start your spiritual improvement from the very first alphabet. Even go back if you find a single element of yours unripe. In the end , the tortoise will beat the hare and will win the race.

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." ]
