MAI-ISM NOTE 575 [ A ] TO 578

575 [ A ] Late Bro. A.S. Mundkur who has translated " Founder's Psalms " had become Mai-ist in an extremely interesting way. The Founder and Mr. Mundkur  were together  for only an official duty, for five days. The Founder had gone to scrutinise his "award" of acquired lands .They stayed in adjoining blocks of the Nipani Travellers' Bungalow . One Friday night Mr.M entered F's room and expressed his greatest surprise on finding him sitting before Mai's picture in worship. What do I see !! Do you believe in Religion after so much learning and free thinking and contact with up to date things ? The greatest humbug that has worked horrors on this world," F was equally staggered at such a contempt. Both were pulled into serious discussion. M let loose his contempt, in never stopping mail trains and specials .He won't to stop to hear a counter reply. After he had finished, F cool mindedly told him," You are right in whatever imputations you have made , but let me have my say."  "Is there any God or not ?" " Yes, but not ...." " Do you think for smooth running of the world , there must be some law. "  " Surely but not such foolish......"  Well suppose you  were a legislator , what would you have let down ?" " Nothing, nothing , absolutely nothing , only live without hurting others with Love. Help others as best you can with Service.Remember your Creator , who has created such a happy , beautiful  and man-serving world and live always cheerfully, taking life as it comes. "
The F asked," If Religion means this," M got wrathfully wild " Don't try to pull me .I am not a child I am fifty two , my friend ?I have studied all religions  and have had long discussions with  Swamis, Moulvis and Reverends ." F smiled to bring M's wrathfulness down. " But supposing some religion means what you say". " I know there is none ". "Suppose some new religion come forth !!"  In fully respectful but convinced manner, he began to leave the room saying with the highest emphasis,"Impossible".F told him he had to go that night  to Belguam to conduct a worship.M was too generous and offered his car for a distance of over 30 miles and back.He smiled and taunted F with a pleasant vengeance, " Please excuse me.I am personally telling you. That is my religion , to save your immense travelling  trouble by giving you my car ". He could not contain and repeated " That is my religion. Not going to a temple but sparing one's car for a carrying a coolie fallen from a scaffold in front of you to hospital." F smiled ," If you don't mind , will you please have a glance at this book of mine.?" He accepted it and the Founder thanked him. The F returned the next morning . As he entered the compound  , forgetting his position as a Collector, he came running and shouting " jay mai , Jay Mai", and opened the motor door like  a brother.Founder was surprised " What has happened to you ?" said the M, "Conversion in a night."  Universal !! No bitterness of individual religions !! Religion itself means Love and Service !! What what what so do you boldly say !! Even if  a man does not believe  in the  existence of God  you call such a man Religious !! if he lives a life of Love and Service !! Has any religion said so in such a explicit bold terms !! Founder said with highest joy," It is not this humble creature who can dare say like that .It is Jay Mai that has shown that condescension  to the suffering world, out of Her Mercifulness for Her children, in this new age."



[ 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." ]
