MAIISM NOTES 771 TO 777

771. The more you realise, every dealing and dependence on the world is finally making you go deeper and deeper into the marshy mud-pit, the greater becomes your need for the Divine Help. Once you learn depending on God for anything and everything concerning you, you begin craving for a key to the heavenly strength, consolation and treasure.

    From time to time, an in every age, clime and religion, every devotee that has been fitted up and made to be born and trained by Mother for the uplift of the suffering world, is also given a golden key ;- such deserved few, as are favoured with the knowledge, recognition and craving for the key. Such ones seek illumination, as to the use of the golden key, from their respective Gurus, and maintain practically throughout their life, a faithful loving tenacity to their Gurus, and enjoy all spiritual, religious, moral and material benefits on the most judicious use of the golden key.

    Specialised superior devotees, during their highest hours of communion with their God, get a promiseful boon from their beloved Deity. It is, that a particular mode of approach and worship, and a particular compilation and composition of praiseful expression will move a particular manifestation of God or a Deity, to the maximum.

    The modern man who belittles things, with his swollen-headedness, asks : " Why that preferential treatment and particularisation ?" The Founder has never been lacking in abundance of such questions. " I can call them superficial-brained, because they see with their own eyes in the world itself the very same truth, and yet they raise questions on allied subjects senselessly, because they are in the field of Religion." Say, for instance, the joining up of a devotee's name with the deity's name. " Why Markand Mai, and not G-Mai ? "- was once an unnerving question. What answer the poor Founder can give ? How could he talk about himself and say " you "die" like me, then Mother will be G-Mai as well". Founder silenced the questioner, on owning defeat, "Yes, She is G-Mai." Few days passed, G would repeat " Jay Mai" but not "Jay Markand-Mai". Once he had a high fever of an extremely high temperature and painfulness. Having failed to get any relief, he began repeating merely "Jay Mai"; absolutely no relief. Somehow, all immediately, an illumination came ; he saw a faint figure of Mother, who said "My son's name is much more, dearer, to me to hear, than my own name". The man repeated the whole Mantra "JAY MAI, JAY MARKAND MAI" ; he had normality within a wonderfully short time. This is the experience known to the Founder in the year before 1935. The man wrote a letter of greatest appreciation, and about his own illumination and his sorrow for his past impudence. But again, the same story !! Man asks the questions again and again similar to " Why Markand Mai, and not G-Mai ? ", even after several years. The Founder gets ruffled and baffled to find the solution. Is the whole thing that comes to him only a relishful narration of imaginary stories, of people that so frequently visit the Founder and mention their experiences ? Is it just to please him ? If there is truth, why again, the same obstinate mulishness after years of experience and after volumes of experiences ? ? The answer has been more than once given in this book. It was no falsehood then ; it is no falsehood now ; man himself is not the same at all times ; MAYA PLAYS.

    The Founder, with all humiliation of the most miserable failure, has to say " Yes; it is so, and that is Maya ". The creation of faith and belief is not a day's task, and not the subject-matter of one experience and one hammering. Hundreds of hammer-strokes are not enough. Man's mind is like a sheep-fold ; hundreds stray out, hundred times in a day. If the shepherd is not watchful, he has to run after the strayed ones and bring them back. The Founder has come to the conclusion, people are not wrong and they are not liars, when they narrate their experience, because, that could be seen from their faces, eyes and attitude and behaviour ; but, after a few days are gone, again the mule becomes mulish. The memory of the experience, and its earnestness and highest intensity of realisation fade away. The truth of truths is he is not at this momentwhat he was thenat that moment of that his experienceThe man, of the moment and on the spot, is the natural man. The man, after the event, is an artificial and adulterated man. He recollects his past through the spectacles of mistiness and disbelief. His forehead-wrinkles go up and he says " yes, I think perhaps, there was something like that, I don't remember ". He is just courteous, if not bad or selfish or proud or arrogant. That is alright for him ; but how can the Founder disbelieve hundreds of experiences of  different people in different circumstances ? Should he consider them all to be imaginary ? And especially, when he has his own experiences, on the top ? ?

    To return to our subject : a particular set-up of a particular worship-method, or a prayer, or a Mantra, or a Sadhana, in every smallest detail, has the unique advantage of innumerable multiplications, from age to age, and man to man. The verbatim and literatim sameness, is the greatest point. There is a certain sacredness and superbness and pureness, about  " untouched with human hand ", while one has to deal with millions. There remains no room for the smallest doubt or discussion about the purity and in-tact-ness. The highest importance of Vedas and Scriptures arises, not only from the most invaluable truth and wisdom contained therein, but from the guarantee that they carry about their being " untouched by human hand "- the very same repetition and reproduction, not simply of the words, but also the phonetic and physical expressions.

    Let me explain it to the modern man, with the modern familiar ideas. Businessmen deal in millions of cotton bales. If one cotton bale is not the same thing as another one, how can the business of millions of rupees be run ? A cotton bale must mean a certain number things of a certain quality, all only innumerable duplicates of a certain assured specimen. This must be beyond every possible doubt and discussion. Then alone, it can be dealt with in millions of repetitions and transfers and exchanges.

   A particularly-worded and a particularly-detailed prayer, or worship, or repetition, as once for all settled between a devotee and a particular Deity, invokes a particular attention of the Deity. It puts the Deity in the sweetest memory of the Deity's relationship with a certain devotee. There is an earth-and-sky-difference between being addressed as " you, so and so," and " you, Mother of so and so ". There is an outburst of joy for any Deity, to be addressed as "the Deity of such and such devotee, and of subsequent innumerable devotees ". The Deity makes good the first promise given, and has the tendermost feelings, about all the devotees' names being made more and more venerated and worshipped. The Deity gets stirred up, to grant the most immediate fulfillment of the desires of the prayer-offerers, worshippers or the name-repeaters. From age to age, long after the devotees are dead and gone, and for ever, such prayers have outlived all distrust, belittlement and disbelief.

    Taking one instance out of so many, such promise-crowned repetitions, as Gayatri, Gita etc., which Hindu is unaware of the wonderful helping powers of Saptashati or Chandi ? For all purposes ! ! and why has it maintained that wonderful power, even after centuries ? Because the  Deities propitiated Mother to grant that everlasting boon, which that milky-hearted sage Markandeya, with the softest heart for the whole humanity and posterity, has immortalised and made available for the devotional world, in perpetuity.    

    Said Mother, on propitiation by the Deities "VRIYATAM" ("ask any boon "). The Deities demanded "SAMSRITA TWAM NO HINSETHAH PARAMAPADAH " ("On Thy remembrance, Thou be pleased to annihilate all our miseries and calamities ").

    Centuries have rolled on, and the world has descended from Satya Yuga (Golden Age) to Kali Yuga (Iron Age). Circumstances, conditions, capacities, virtue, morality, religion, mind, human nature and the world-all things have changed.

772. The Universal Divine Mother has made a " Nimitta ", a name-sake instrument, of Mai-Markand to declare MAI-ISM, in Her playfulness or seriousness, Mother alone knows. Mai-Markand is 300% aware of his incapacity, and so, he too in his humblest way tells Mother thus :

    " Which devil is going to hear me ? The only possible way is that you should be showering your Mercy and Grace, on whosoever approaches you through " Mother's message," " Mai-Sahasranama ", " Mai-ism "or " Mai-Markand-Ardha Sahasranama " etc. The world is after all selfish. The world has hypocritically made a great roaring about all intellectual superiority, industrial intellect, scientific wonderfulness and philosophical sublimity. But, in the end, whom has the world honoured, revered, obeyed, followed and remembered ?? Can anyone give us the series of richest man in the world from age to age ? How few names of scientists do we on an average know ? Remove man's all-delusive mistiness. The world has cared for none except " THE BENEFACTOR ". After all the passing things of the day and hour, after all the tom-toms of this man's greatness and that man's greatness, what has the world prized and valued as the highest ?? "That thing which made, which makes, and which will make, the world happy and freed from misery."

    " Soleave something like Thy promise for the present and for posterity."

    This is the last truest understanding about the world. Don't be led away by its false tall-talks and hypocrisies and artificial appearances. After all the different personalities that a Bahuroopi (a juggler assuming various forms) displays, the last thing is, that he demands his own selfish thing of remuneration, although he has given thundering speeches about the uselessness of wealth, the need of renunciation and self-reliance non-attachment, etc.

    That s the world. Don't get infatuated with its juggleries. The Founder has so much experience of visitors, who, in rapt attention would be hearing and talking about Mother for hours, but finally the cat will come out of the bag. No philosophy and no discovery, no art and no industry, is as sweet as the one that takes you out of a misery. The Founder thus dives deep to catch the root of the remedy for eradication of the evil itself. How can the strayed-away sheep be brought back? It is only by showing and holding fresh and lovely grass, food-morsel, etc.

    Gita, Saptashati, Bible, Koran, Gathas, etc., are the richest legacies, left as a result of the aforesaid Holy Communion, when the devotees demanded and Deities promised.

773. The world has all along shown the attitude of ridiculing an old Grand Papa, when he thinks of creating a mango-grove. None helps him then. All desert him, calling him crazy. After a few years, the mango trees grow and bring forth delicious fruits. All sons and grandsons and great-grandsons run to the grove, and the first thing they do, is to place a sign-board " this mango grove belongs to us, so ans so, Whoever plucks a single mango will be severely punished." That is the world ! ! The world has never once thought how it has ill-treated its benefactors !!

    The Divine Mother Mai has similarly left us, as Her boon, " MAI SAHASRANAMA ". It is meant to be repeated with the Universal  Mai-conception, with the predominating key-notes of Love and Service. It is symbolical of Love as against " Power ", and of " Mother " as against Shakti, the fulfiller of one's desires. Mai has Friday, the day of Venus, as Her special day, as against Tuesday, the day of Mars (of Shakti). The text is the very same as the sacred and secret " Lalita Sahasranama ", coming down to us from centuries, but in strictest secrecy from the Guru to the Shishya. It is rejuvenated, with re-shuffling and re-sorting of the names, with a view to regenerating its living effect and with a new interpretation, a new outlook, a new belief and a new faith, to add Universality and to delete all secondary superfluity.

    Without that active protective watchfulness and care of the Divine Mother, helping and saving and emancipating them that approach Her, which Religion can hope to survive ? ?, under the new materialistic and atheistic onslaught ? ? Mother or God alone must arrange from time to time to keep all the religions and religious institutes going on. Mother alone should pull out mud-stuck-up waggons and keep them in motion.

    Followers of Mai-ism should form their preliminary ideas first from " MOTHER'S MESSAGE " and should thereafter go through the present book on " MAI-ISM, " as the latter shows the practical aspect of a worldly man's way of dealing with Mai-ism. It gives a clear understanding and detailed information, and its reading is greatly useful for the preliminary grounding, and setting the head and heart in the required groove. Thereafter, a Mai-ist should take upon himself the more arduous work, of repeating any of the mantras given in Mai Sahasranama. Thereafter, he should undertake a detailed study of " Phala-Shruti " and supplements at the end in the said book, containing Mai-Khadga-Mala, Mai-Yana, Mai-Poojana-Prakara, Mai-Poojan-Upachara, etc. The devotee thereafter should start repetitions of Mai-Sahasranama, finishing hundreds after hundreds of Sahasranama, and thousands after thousands of Mai-mantras. Everything will tehreby be set right- your outward circumstances, conditions and calamities, and inward imperfections of the head and impurities of the heart. Last thing, if you have been attached to your Guru (whoever he be) and Mother both, you may undertake the repetitions of the select name-series of " Mai-Markand-Ardha-Sahasranama". It is the finest essence of five hundred names of the Sahasranama, arranged in quite an easy order for constant remembrance, natural association and alliedness of ideas, etc., as dictated in 1949 by Mother during communion, for advanced disciples, who have established long-durated Guru-Shishya relationship, with their Guru along with Mother.

    It may look I am getting narrowed down and going from a larger area to a smaller area of the expanse ; but, for the same volume, whereas the depth of the former is almost negligible, that of the latter is quite immense. The first expanse has vast lengths and breadths, but extremely small depths.

    Your powers to move the world depend on your Sadhana, and Sadhana means concentrated smallest area with maximum depth. Depth is the most important dimension.

    Sadhana means solitude, dying determination, definite most precise conception of the intended achievement, Guru's Grace and Mother's mercy, and untiring single-minded exertion, with a perfect non-attachment to all other things except the thing to be achieved. Valuable things can be had from mountains or oceans alone, and not from vast sandy earth-plains. The wisest man is single-minded for his Sadhana, and Universal-minded while dealing with the world, he does not mind feasting. Saints are prescribed, and described, to have the qualification of being soft as a flower, and hard as an adamant.


    I wish I had written "MAI-ISM" first, and then, "MAI-SAHASRANAMA". But, as I have so often stated, I have committed the greatest blunder of taking the world at a much higher value than its actual, which I am finding as time passes. The usual way of the world is first, to introduce the speaker and then the truth to be spoken. The world gets more enchanted of persons, than of principles.

    What a joy and satisfaction ! ! !  While I am writing this, I get a letter from one highly respectable and sincere devotee (P.D.D.). It says " This new book is also like the Sahasranama, a book to be approached and referred to, during perplexities. Pages 131 and 353, on being opened after prayers have given me indescribable illumination and immense satisfaction." My own personal joy is to learn, that the Daughter is in no way inferior to the Mother, in her powers and blessings, relieving and helping the readers- I mean, " Mai-ism " to " Mai-Sahasranama ".

    Oceans of misunderstandings, misplacements and misspent energies would be saved, if it were possible to sort out truly religious from routine-religious, hypocritic religious, selfish religious, exploiting-religious and irreligious, etc. Hardest task ! ! ! But it has to be done, either individually or by methodisation and organisation.

    For worldly man and woman, I recommend nothing so emphatically as Service and Surrender. If they don't know even the A. B. C. of that most formidable thing spoken of as " Religion ", they need not droop in despondency. Serve your parentsserve your Guruserve your Godserve you wifechildrenfriends and relationsserve your neighboursserve allNo technique is required thereinMother Herself will lift you upMother has Herself promised. And that is Mai-ism.

774. Once a Master was training his disciple in Sharanagati. The Shishya had the great aptitude and was the most ardent devotee of Shree Mata Tripura-Sundari. After twelve years had passed away in hard service to the Guru and in devotion to the Mother, it once happened that the Guru was out, and on prayers, The Divine Tripura-Sundari appeared before the Shishya. Said she " I am pleased with thy devotion. Ask any boon."  " I would grant you even the final emancipation on your passing away." The disciple's joy knew no bounds. He wanted however, not to e, ant the least immature disciple of his Master. He wished to make a precedent, for the glorification of his Master as having trained up and bred up such a worthy disciple. With this mental working, the disciple in all humility said to Mother " Oh Merciful Mother !! of the whole Universe !! it is so very majestically Merciful of Thee, to grant me the salvation. But I am feeling for so many others suffering. I would rather prefer hell, if by my suffering, others can be saved."

    The Mother disappeared. She did not choose granting the said boon of his having to go in hell. Only She blessed him with highest happiness and welfare. The disciple was exultant with joy and was counting his moments to narrate the event to the Master, on return. On his arrival, he joyfully narrated the same.

    Said the Master, striking his hand against the forehead, " My twelve years' labour over thee has been wasted. Thou art surely the highest amongst so many others, ut thou art not the highest of the highest. Who are you ? to say give me hell " to save others ? "  " You have not yet fully understood me and my Sharanagati." The Master blessed the disciple who prostrated, with a promise not to repeat the pitiable error. The master moved his hand over the disciple's face with all endearment and said, " My Son !!! Say, " Thy Will be done." Even if Bhagvati Mai comes again and persists and says, " I wish to do as you desirest," even thenlet your words be nothing else except Thy Will be done."


775. A majestic queen looked at her rear lane thrice alone in her life-time. At her second look she was pleased and wonderfully surprised , that a girl of twelve doing the scavenging work years before had been a woman of thirty, with two children by her side. The queen felt doubtful, if this woman was the same girl , that she had seen eighteen years before. She was pleased to ask and her inference stood confirmed. She had a surpriseful, shocking joyful pleasure. She told her," You became from a small girl to be a woman with children!! You have been so patiently sweeping my court-yard for past eighteen years, but not a single day you have asked even the smaller thing from me”!!! What can be the poor woman say? The poor woman kept her hands folded and said, "Mother, Your Grace and glance is more than enough for me." The queen was moved beyond imagination; she said," You shall have no more to do this menial work. I am ordering my men to send you at your home enough money, that will enable you to live in a magnificent place  with a  abundant number of servants."
The queen ordered out and managed a large sum of money to be sent over to the woman. Days passed. Months passed.  Years passed. One evening, the queen heard some noise in the back-yard. Some two sturdy young men were catching an old woman and helping her to move to be below the point of the royal terrace. The queen was disturbed. She looked there and inquired what the matter was. She asked who that old woman was.  With humblest respects the two men said, it was their mother," She is almost on the point of dying and her last desire has been that she should be brought over here and we have brought her.". The queen exclaimed," What, is it not my Sharana? " Said the two sons of old woman," Yes Mother, that is your Grace-recipient Sharana. She was working here only the last Friday. She continued serving here upto the last Friday , although she had so many servants and we , her sons promised her  to do this work most carefully and satisfactorily for her. But she won't hear us. Now we pray that Your Majesty advises and orders her to lie her few days peacefully permitting us to work for her, here". The old woman with her tottering hands closed the mouth of her son. She could not bear the words which would mean swerving from her self-surrender. She looked up at the queen with folded hands. Tears fell from the eyes of the queen. They fell over her face. All of them retired. The queen had no normal mind peacefulness of routine living. She was struck with herself -surrendering spirit.  She has continued to serve her for so many years even though she had sons and servants, in spite of her painful, weakened old bent physic and age.  The queen passed immediate orders to her personal doctor to run up and visit her Sharana and do all the speediest and costliest needful to cure her. She took an anxious interest and breathlessly waited for information about Sharana getting safe. The news bearer gave this news, “On reaching home, from here from your Majesty, the old woman immediately expired".
776. That is self-surrender; Mai-ism relies upon and preaches.
Dear reader, THAT IS MAI-ISM. GOD AS MOTHER, MOTHER OF ALL, LOVE, SERVICE, DEVOTION AND UNCONDITIONAL CHEERFUL SELF-SURRENDER.
BE MOTHER’S CHILD. What is worth knowing and what is worth doing? How little can b we know and can we do?? Not even a drop in the Infinite Ocean!!!
The Founder while closing this book, with a feeling of repentance and disgust about his monkey-ishness  and under the influence of strongest Madira ( restlessness creating wine) , which Mother’s fancy poured in the Founder’s heart for Her Own Playing , sheds his  tears, the final ones to be known by the blessed readers  of this sacred book with the following words. 
"Mother!!  I have danced enough at Thy bidding. Take me back now to the goal desired by thee for Thy wicked son."
NENSE NEN MILAAYE RAKHANAA (HAAN)
ARU MAA MAA KARA MARA JAANAA (YEJI)
"With Thy eyes, My eyes United, Do Keep Perpetually'; Remember, Don't fail,
Repeating “Mother”, Mother, make me die in Thee! Oh !!! Ye !!!
777. If Love is Mother and Mother is Love, I am Mother's and Mother is mine. Mother bless the readers. Bless Thy followers. Bless Thy surrender seeking. Be Thou pleased with anyone that repeats Thy Sacred Name. On Thyself being propitiated and pleased, let the little universe of every devotee of Thine be most pleased, satisfied, comfortable and happy.

Let it be Thy Grace that the rulers led the ruled into the righteous path. Let good befall to the lot of all. Let the Universe be happy with rains, crops, contentment and prosperity.

Make Thy devotees live in peace and bliss without fear. Make all beings to relish pleasure in attending to their duties and on attaining duties and on attaining their spiritual welfare.

Make the wicked virtuous, make the virtuous successful in attaining their peace of mind. Make tranquilized souls free from bondages. Inspire and help the freed to be taking up as their life mission, the work of helping, loving and serving others to free themselves through Thy Mercy and Guru's Grace.

May all be freed from dangers. May all understand and attain good. May all be living nobly. May all be rejoicing in the Universal spiritual good of all.

Mother! Make all happy, free from all worries and diseases and all calamities. Make each and all of us enabled to enjoy the Best, what is Divine, Sublime and Good.

[ 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." ]

MAIISM NOTES 764 A & B

764-A. The very consciousness that you have surrendered yourself to Mother, is a huge dynamo in itself, creating invisible strength. Once a belief of " What Mother does is for my good, as I have surrendered, although my limited vision cannot see through " has dawned, three-fourths of your miseries disappear, and you with a smile pass through the triple fires. Surrendering is most difficult, and yet the easiest exercise. It is a stage to commence and end with. Outwardly, it is below all merit ; but inwardly, the most efficacious remedy. As a matter of fact, self-surrender is an independent royal way, as good as Karma, Gyana, Bhakti or Yoga marga. The working is like the nearest man most benefited, without his own merit. God and Guru themselves play their most active parts in this case, when the surrendered reduces his own part to nil. Here we are referring to the self-surrender, which is not temporary, but one of a constant permanent nature of a life-long duration, one of mentality itself so turned, with the constant above said same attitude : "Let Thy will be done : What pleases Thee pleases me. I welcome good or evil, because it befalleth on me, by Thy Will, and because whatever Thou doest is for my ultimate good, progress and welfare, as I have surrendered myself to Thee."

    A wandering saint with a small dog and a lantern, on entering a village by night, was not given bread and driven to a distant tree. A tiger killed the dog and a hurricane broke the lantern. The next morning, he learnt that the neighboring hostile village had raided the place, and killed each and every one of the residents. The bread-less driving out, the barking dog killing, and the betraying lantern extinguishing were for saving him ! !

    WHO CAN UNDERSTAND MOTHER'S WAYS ?

764-B. It is extremely interesting to see the alliedness of Sharanagati or Self-surrender and Advaitism. So much so, that the Founder calls Sharanagati to be The Mai-istic Positive Advaitism. Popular Advaitism means a belief of unreality, non-existence and delusion. Mai-istic positive Advaitism of Sharanagati is not a disbelief of the Existence or a Delusion, but the training of mind to remain uninfluenced, as if nothing existed or had any existence or could happen outside and independent of Mother's Will. Mai-istic Advaitism does not originate, from the desire of evading painfulness and fear by being and making oneself invincible against all external disagreeabilities, with the drunkenness of " nothing exists, everything is only a delusion, I am myself Brahman." It originates from a much nobler sentiment, of relinquishing one's rights and of one's own self, with every humility, and with the most emphatic assertion about God and god's working. It is the noblest self-volunteered self-victimisation, and silent self-sacrifice of one's own self for one's own most beloved Mother, and not a defiant drunkenness.

    Don't jumble up issues. An Adwaitist may as well talk about Sharanagati. But, he is then utilising the provisions of his younger brother, the Dwaitist, in a bullying manner. An Adwaitistic attitude is " Mine is mine, and yours is ours in common."- The eldest brother's "Dadagiri" attitude. Be Mother pleased to keep both brothers in each other's embraceas both are needed for the world's welfare. We are here talking of theories and their influences in abstract thinking.

    Mai-ism does not accept the biting acidity of the belief of a delusion or non-existence, but surely does appreciate and recommend the mind-training, leading to the realisation of the fruitlessness, changefulness and deceitfulness of the world and its working. The Mai-istic positive Advaitism of Sharanagati is superior to the negative Advaitism, because it leaves no chance for an irresponsibility, misunderstanding, abuse, swollen-headedness, exaggeration of one's own masterliness, etc., resulting from the notion of non-existence and delusion.

    Further, the sweetness, joyfulness and ecstasy resulting from the belief of " The Final Disposer" is a more enjoyable thing, than the conception of a cob-web of imaginary in-actualities, partly and sometimes accepted and partly and sometimes rejected, or rather practically admitted and theoretically denied.  " Something imagined as a Whole and containing Everything", " Something about which we know and can know nothing", "Something which we only give a name to, but could not contact", " Something which is invisible inaudible untouchable and incomprehensible", "Something, which we can call as the Highest Whole; but we can deal with in actual life as Nothing of Nothings," is surely extremely hard to conceive. The highest wonderfulness is that the Realisation of That Everything is again dependent on the negation of the very nothings.

    The Founder breaks the centuries-old spell of the Delusion theory, and more than once suggests to the Mai-ists, " Nothings can't be neglected. They form the basis for the realisation of " Everything ". Let therefore the Impersonal God be thought of after you have attained Personal God." " Let Advaitism be pursued after the attainment of perfection achievable through Dwaitism."  " See that you are really approaching the Highest Whole and not the Nothing of Nothings."

    Under Mai-ism, Adwaitistic spirit has its simplest, most natural first-hand interpretation, dismissing all subsequent Scriptural complications. It means, the spirit which entirely obliterates the notion of oneself being different from another, as two separate entities. One is Adwaitistic to the extent he has developed non-difference practically and theoretically. Etymologically " A " the first letter, represents the first cause, Mai. The second part "Dwaita" represents duality of every nature, complements, opposites, etc. Mai-ism does not deny the existence of dualities. They emerge from and merge into the first cause, individually and cosmically.

MAIISM NOTES 755 TO 764

755. Regarding Akartritvam, let your prayer to Mother be : " I know neither virtue nor vice. Neither can I practise the former, nor can I withstand falling into the clutches of the latter. My only consolation is, that I have burnt out all my egoism of being the actor, and have developed my faith in believing , " I am doing what Thou drivest me to do".

756. Paramahamsa has all along spoken through his life, about Mother ; and I am humbly telling you,  "If you are blessed, carve out these three words on your Heart, " BE MOTHER'S CHILD".

    Mother is the Doer and Mother is the EnjoyerWhat have sins and merits or bondage and salvation to do with thee or me ? ? Let ours be only the joyof being permitted and enabled to serve Her and Her children.

    JO KUCHHA KIYA SO TOONE KIYA, MEN KACHHU JANATA NAI. TERI TOONHI SAMALA LE, MEN JAPA RAHAHUN MAI.

    (" Whatever appears as I have done or I am doing, is being really done by Thee. I know nothing  about it. Thou take care of Thy things as Thou thinkest best. Let me remain busy and undisturbed, with repeating Thy Sweet Name, "Jay Mai, Jay Mai.")

757. You little small and weak puny creature of Man !! Just tell me, count out to me, what is your maximum victorious capacity ?? Tell me what is your maximum span of life ? What is your stability (?) in perpetuity and against God's wrathfulness ?? What is your absolute value ? What is your never-failing strength ? Have you the valorous strength of Arjun ? The hero of deadliest battlefield was plundered by a passerby KABA. Have you the austerities of Vishvamitra ? He had to close his eyes out of shame when he was unable to hold his own against MENAKA. Can you just tell me where you can stand firm, as the sure master of at least a particular situation ?? Let all things go, are you sure of your body ? the next moment ? Thenwhy all this monkey-chattering ? and mice-playingso long as the cat is out ?? The cat first catches that mouse, which is running from one corner to the other, with the pride of being able to save itself.

758. Two young friends started to go to Mother on a small journey. One of them had ten rupees with him, and the other eleven. For the whole period of their travel, the eleven-rupees-man was talking about his wisdom to keep more money in case an emergency arises, and his richness. They finally had the "darshan" of Mother. They prayed and prostrated. When they were departing, Mother said, " Well, you are going back to the world ?. Just go in the rear. There is the mountain of gold. Take away as much as you can". Both were busy picking up loose golden stones, pebbles and dusts till they could not lift anymore without themselves falling down while lifting the load. On the return journeythere was not a single syllable about the ten and eleven rupees and excess of one rupee.

759. On 2-7-1943, Mother's day (Friday), in Hubli, the lady ( T. A. D.) whom the Founder had accompanied to Ramanashram, was discussing at midnight this subtle most sweetest subject, especially about Sakama Bhakti and Nishkama Bhakti. To all appearance, people would commit the blunder of thinking the Founder was advocating Sakama Bhakti. Poor fellows forget, the nourishment of one man is different from that of another.

760. Said the Founder to the blessed saintly lady, "Not only is begging bad, but the very offering of a demand prayer, in the first place means, you are discrediting Mother with not being able to know what is passing in your mind. Further, if you are a devotee yourself, you are discrediting Mother with a bankruptcy of Mercilessness. It means, you have neither faith and trust, nor the spirit of self-surrender to leave matters to Her to do as She wishes, much less the joy of implicit obedience to Her Divine Will, and that of seeing Her Wishes fulfilled."

761. " When we are praying with a demand, we exhibit our ignorance, distrust and funkiness from self-surrender. When we are meditating, we are pulling the Formless and Attribute-less Mother, to be having form and attribute. When we are reciting hymns, we are trying to limit and deform The Indescribable Mother. When we say, we are going to Mother, we are denying Her omnipresence". "A true devotee with Divine Knowledge is only in a whirlpool, what to consider as 'ought to be done." ".

762. " I only pray to Mother in that stage of helplessness, thus : 'Mother ? Take my mind to be Thy weakest child. Let my body be Thy temple, consider my any words to be Thy prayers, consider my any walking movement to be the holy Pradakshina circumscribing around Thee. Consider my any enjoyment to be an offering to Thee."

763. The lady was in her highest spirit of devotion, and sweetly added :
    " And let my soul, Oh Mother !! be the boatsman that passes over Thy children, to Thee."

764. That is the true Mai-istic Spirit. Love on one hand, and self-surrender on the other, are its prize-winning posts and pillars. True Self-Surrender does not ask the question, " What will be the return therefor ?" It does not arise out of hope or helplessness. " Sharanagati (Surrender) and Mother's Karuna (Mercifulness-Showering) are one (exactly balanced) " says the Founder. One thing is the other side of another. "MAI SHARANAGATI KARUNA EKA." (Vide Mai-Markand-Ardha-Sahasranama in Gujerati).

    Self-Surrender and that sort of self-surrender is the bed-rock of the Mother's Religion. Self-Surrender means "Thy Will, and my joy in seeing that Thy Will is fulfilled."

MAIISM NOTES 754 A TO D

754-A In religious true understanding, there are so many seeming confusions and contradictions, which are removable only by the Unseen Hand, that works wonders with an extremely delicate working, which laughs at the human limitations of cause and effect, logic and reason, experiment and conclusion, proof and judgment.

    The whole indefiniteness and incorrectness of our religious thinking arises from various facts ; such as, under :

    (1) The opposites often lie interpenetrating.
    (2) All our judgments are relative.
    (3) The full data are never before us.
    (4) We always think with a preconceived mind.
    (5) We are pulled away to one extremity or another.
    (6) So many truths can never be realised without actual experience-
    etc., etc., etc.

    Each teaching has its own relative value, for a particular mentality at a particular stage and at a particular moment. A layman always finds contradictions, because, whereas all the teachings are huddled up in a certain book or talk of few hours, his mind cannot transform itself within those few hours, to see the consequential order between two seemingly contradictory things. Further difficulty that often creates a mess is, that whereas a religious teacher writes or speaks with a Universal mind, an inexperienced reader or hearer is all the while judging him with his own individual mind, which latter tolerates nothing inapplicable to himself and nothing redundant, nor any omission of the simplest missing links, left over to be supplied by him with his own independent thinking.

    The teacher's mentality is different. he says everything and all things and leaves it to his pupils to make the best use of everything, considering their own particular stages of development and experience, as far as the applicability goes.

    Don't develop a passion for arguing. Two blind persons in a blind alley discuss " Some one is here." Who can decide ! Either the presence of the said person must be felt, or someone in whom they believe should assure them of the presence or absence. The first is Mother's Mercy and the second is the Guru's Grace.

    Whenever, you have your religious difficulties, the best thing is to try to solve them yourselves. You start with Manana after Shravana. (meditate later, not while hearing). Start with the assumption "Still God's Grace has not dawned on me, with its full illumination". "It must be I, who with inexperience could not see the propriety and appropriateness of the teachings, given by scriptures and experienced teachers". Try your best to turn your mind to see the correctness of the teaching. Mostly, you yourself will succeed in finding the true solution. If you don't, then place your difficulty before your Guru, maintaining every decorum and delicacy, with your humility-approach and respectful loving attitude. When God's Grace opens up your eyes, Guru's one word becomes more than sufficient with illumination. So long as that is not there, you will neither get an illuminating Guru, nor will you be able to contact him, nor will the Guru be able to drive the truth home in you.

    Hence, Mai-ism insists on God and Guru both, neither God alone, nor Guru alone. What works substantially is neither the mind nor intellect, nor will, nor body, nor the outside world. It is the spirit Chaitanya that alone works. The spirit flows from God to Guru and from Guru to Shishya. The rest is only a talk and a delusion, as of a lightening in the vast firmament, or of promising but scattering empty clouds, with the result of a dark despondency of finally " no rain".

754-B Surely, this confusion and contradiction in religious understanding, presenting the whole problem, only as a muddle, in which there is no logic or clarity, or which is based on merely a blind faith alone, is the most disgustful thing for an impatient superficial onlooker.  It is the most tormenting thing for them, that have religious living as the goal of their life. In so many cases, lives and lives pass away in search of Truths and there is a painful burning or suspense, made more distressful on realisation of one's ignorance. The ardent and eager aspirant says: " Atleast let me have some clear idea about what the whole mysterious thing is."

    The greatest reason for this standing trouble is that most of us try to find out the way ourselves, without the aid of outside Guru assistance. We are for getting some easiest formulae without having to approach some Guru, without having to pay any price (not necessarily, money). We just indulge in spasmodic skips and we desultorily depend on broken bites, here and there, to satisfy our hunger. And these teachings coming, as they do, from so many different sources of books and teachers, cause the confusion worst confounded.

    The fact of facts is that the most appropriate teaching varies, not only from one teacher to another, but from the same teacher to one man or another. Not only that, but from the same teacher to the same man, according as he is at one stage or another after some more progress. Nothing is more convincing about the said Truth, as the contradictory teachings of Mai Swarup Ramakrishna. In the case of a violent-tempered disciple (Swami Niranjanand, later), when he was prepared to teach a lesson to one who insulted hi Guru, Paramahamsa advised " anger is a deadly sin, why should you be subject to it?". To another disciple (Swami Yoganand, later), with an extremely soft heart, in similar circumstances, he said " the man abused me and you pocketed the insult to your Guru, without a murmur !!!". "One should either kill the vilifier, or leave the place." Which is true ? and what did the Guru himself believe?. "Anger control" or " Killing the vilifier "?. Both are only superficial. The realmost thing was neither of those, but the spiritual advancement of the disciple, according as what was needed in each case.

754-C. Just let us take a bird's-eye view pf the life-long perplexing labyrinth for the inexperienced lay man, trying to cut the Gordian knot with his own worldliness-corroded weapon. He reads in the first pages of a Gospel "don't leave your duty". Only a few pages after, he reads "remain absorbed in Me !!! " How can the mind remaining absorbed in "Me" be able to be again of the efficiency required for discharging two pennyworth matters of worldliness?? On top, another teacher would call worldliness a wholesale delusion!!!

    The underlying truth is, the aspirant is gradually led from one stage to another. the latter teachings seemingly contradictory are for the advanced stage which could not be attained during a few hours' reading or hearing.

    Let us try to unwind the thread in our own unphilosophical illiterate man's way.

    To start with, instead of spending our life in a foolish, impulsive vicious and unthoughtful way, it is most desirable to follow the Guru's teaching of "Be doing righteous actions", and of "Don't leave your duties." We should not forget that we cannot remain silent or actionless, even if we so determined. There is no stand-still-ism in the mind-mill-machinery.

    But then, when the fruit which is the immediate thing we can see, and which we believe to be the result of our action, is adverse, we get despondent, sorrowful and disspirited. It is quite clear that on that fruit alone, would depend our persistence or desistence, overdoing or under-doing, perseverance or indifference and our pleasure or pain. Failure of adequate fruits very naturally makes us relapse into inaction, and neglect of our duties and righteous actions.

    Here, the Guru holds us up, by giving us a second teaching. He says "you can't keep up your working vigourousness without the idea of a fruit, and there is no certainty that every good action of yours will be unfailingly crowned with a good result or fruit. The best midway, therefore, is that you continue to have the impetus of the consciousness of the fruit, but you dedicate away that fruit to God." “Remove the idea of enjoyership or sufferership of yourself about the fruit."

    " Doing one's duties and righteous actions or scriptures-enjoined-performances, leaving the fruit as dedicated to God, is by itself a satisfactory and countable stage. It is like the passing of the Matric examination, which at a stroke separates the educated world from the uneducated world. In the field of religion, it segregates truly religious from routine religious, hypocritic religious, selfishly religious, utilitarian religious, opportunistic religious, exploiting religious, and deceitful religious, etc. Righteous action and duty with fruit dedication to Almighty is in itself a self-sufficient measure and the main practical maxim of life.

    But the aspirant cannot all the time remain satisfied, with a stop there. The endlessness of the seed-tree-fruit innumerable repetitions makes him more and more tired, as he passes lives after lives. He gradually entertains a desire to pass from the realm of "action" into that of "inaction", from Rajasic Satvickness to the Satvickness in which Rajas is only the irreducible minimum. The proportion of ambitious fervent spirited action gradually goes decreasing. He is now for advancing spiritually, though without entirely leaving "action". He gradually practises renouncing the idea of not only the fruit, but also the ownership and authorship, and thereafter, even the attachment and even the memory of the 'action'. Gradually further, he begins feeling "I can do nothing", and finally believing "I myself am nothing."

    The real test however is " desirelessness "; and the spiritual aspirant while proceeding through the above stages has to attain the maximum desirelessness. Even then, he has to remain yoked to action, though as a mere hireling and a nimitta, a mere nominal instrument-like actor.

    In a word, he is enjoined to work and action, even while advancing in stages, till most automatically, because of desirelessness and the constant consciousness of :I am nothing", or strongest all-absorbing devotion or Yoga or Gyana, he of himself goes on being disabled for action, more and more automatically, and not out of any indolence or unwillingness or trouble or painfulness involved or fear of results, or a misconception, etc- in a word, till his inaction does not arise from his, "tamas" (inertia) but from Satvickness going on increasing- to put it in an unscriptural homely way, "till actions themselves leave him."

    Here, there are two disagreeable truths forming a paradox. If you don't remain engaged in good actions, your restless mind creates Satan's workshop for you. On the other hand, every action has its reaction and there is an endless chain from which a tired-out soul would be seeking liberation. To put it in other words, as its importance justifies repetition, life and livingness can't be sustained without action, thought, desire, word and deed, and every action is surely a bondage, binding us to an endless series of actions and reactions, births and deaths, pains and pleasures, etc. Every action has its off-shoots and sub-off-shoots and neverending results of seed-tree-fruit revolutions of a vicious circle. What is the way out ?

    The religious alchemy shows the way. It is " Disinterested and God-dedicated Action" " Be doing action and yet, don't permit its action-ness to degenerate you, bind you or touch you."  And that requirement is secured through God-dedication.

    The law about the untied-up-mind turning to pleasure-seeking degenerating ways is so very terrible, that even after the preliminary life of worldly duty is finished on the soul reaching a higher stage, the soul is yet kept up linked with "action", even in the higher stages. And then, nothing can be so agreeable as taking up the work of public religious welfare.

    Finally, a time comes, when the highly advanced soul's devotion and desirelessness and the consciousness of nothingness becomes so very overpowering, that it is impossible for him to do any miscellaneous inferior duties. It is only when that stage is reached, that the teaching about " Remain absorbed in Me" becomes applicable.

    This is only a rambling specimen of various kinds of weavings,  that can be made out of religious highest truths. There can be so many ways of different representations. This is only one of such several confounding questions and written-up interpretations. But, the substance is this. Once you fully believe, that the religious true understanding or solid progress is a matter of a deep psychological working, and not of a magic-wand blind faith, all your disgust, despondency and fear about confusions and contradictions, the muddle and the mess, must be made to disappear. And that can be done on beginning to think with an extremely broad and sympathetic searchlight-scrutinising-faculty, under the blessings of Mother and Guru with their Mercy and Grace.

754-D The modern youngster is sure to flare up with the question "Has the writer nothing else to say except Mother's Mercy, Guru's Grace, Love, Service, Devotion and Surrender, Universality and God as Mother?"  Let me boldly say, that is the richest consolidated cream of all religious teachings. Ordinary worldly people have absolutely no idea, what a terrible whirlpool religious beliefs and disbeliefs, doubts and distractions, create for them that make religious life to be the only goal of their living. Innumerable questions taking years and years embarrass you and sometimes even haunt you. You are in suspense and groping in the dark craving for mental quietude with intellectual and spiritual illumination on the agitating religious problems.

    "Is there any God ? How is man born? Why does one enjoy a kingdom and does another rot on a footpath? Are we responsible for our actions? Have we a free will or are we merely puppets? Do good or bad actions always give good or bad results ? If not, where is the Divine Justice? Why partiality, inequality, and cruelty of Nature? Can we not escape reactions of our evils? Is there any life after death? Which is true, Rebirth or Doomsday? Which is better, action or inaction? Which is more elevating, Home or Hermitage? Is there any efficacy of prayers and any substantial intercession or Divine Aid by Deities? Is repentance and devotion enough to secure forgiveness? Is there any need of cautiousness at all in life, regarding virtue, character and good action, if devotion or Gyana is so very efficacious as to burn down all sins?" Waves and waves, whirlpools and whirl-pools! !

    Any one of these questions is more than enough, to keep a philosophical head constantly occupied practically for the whole life, because there is no end of off-shoots, of sub-questions and no satisfactory answer which would satisfy anybody and everybody merely on the logical rational and intellectual plane. These are all matters of experiences, admitting of no convincing proofs.

    In these circumstances, the Founder's last conclusion in the most practical manner has been comprised in the Six Truths mentioned under Mai-ism. Man, with all his boasts of Science, with microscopes etc., has yet remained blind and his blindness is endless. He can do nothing and is nothing. Till now, Man has not been able to bring on our world, peace, happiness, diseaselessness or goodness. Evil has not been eradicated. How long to be deluded with deceptive promises of future better-being, after decades or centuries, which one is never to see ?

    Founder says "Take therefore the cash, and let the credit go". Secure a good Guru-guide and secure the greatest Mercy of the Supreme Queen, the Owner, the Creator and the Disposer of the Universe. Live your life as straight as you can. Conquer and annihilate your mind or quieten it, to be saved from being dragged into hundred whirlpools.  Love and Surrender with Service and Devotion spread around you with a universal outlook, is everything and all things about True One Religion. You have to practise, work out and live out these principles of Highest Truth in every moment of your life, as far as you can. There is no easy way to get an all-satisfying answer, to every question the she-monkey (mind) may raise; and there is no magic-wand-transformation. You have to die yourself for yourself. The conviction of " This alone, not That, and not entangled overshadowed and obstructed by hundreds of That "- is the secret soul of the Mai-istic spiritual Sadhana and Siddhi (Success).

    Love is not simply the dearest word of lovers and poets alone, but of devotees and true religionists, although that heavenly wonderful mystic word is whispered, only when Soul is in communion with Almighty, in the sound-tight silent temple of one's Heart.
