716 A.'Shanti' and 'Sukha' - tranquility and happiness - everyone wants them. These are spiritual qualities.Man's inner soul revolts, against man being turned into machines. These two attainments are indispensable for the spiritual hunger of man. In spite of all atheism and materialism, man is unable to cease to be divine , in his finalmost reality.Just think most seriously about one question.Why is it that even the most wicked and worst persons are liked to be called righteous and good , just and kind ? Why ? Why are people so very anxious to cover up all their badness and falsehoods , trickeries and hypocrisies ? Why that nature - inner nature - for being called benevolent, philanthropic and living one's life  for world's welfare ? Go to any part of the world , of any language , any civilisation; test either the smallest child , or the most tyrannical tyrant ; there , there , is the proof of the 'Divinity of Man'.

The Founder has seen this contrast vividly, since 1947. Swallowers expect the treatment accorded to angelic benefactors. Immoral youths want the rights of Shuka Deva in the midst of young women. Why, why this desire of being know as, as treated as, “angels”?? The Divinity of Man, within, revolts against being altogether wiped out. It is not, that a spreading a name of goodness is only a part of the play, for the facility of one’s game. Study this point most minutely and you will find out there is a “cutting to the quick” in the inner most heart , at the very act of someone reminding you, of your having fallen from your true and natural plane of superb Divinity.
Everyone has heard about “Shanti and Sukha”, and their genealogy and history, and about their possession and possessors, in the past and the present. Just as I find the so called atheism to be really rebelliousness, on the diagnosis of the modern age, here to, I have found cry to be meaningless. It is a cry for having the same cake again in your purse, which you have eaten away. It is the complaint-ful grumbling (about neck compressing twisting and aching) of the self-hurting man who , as a desire driven discontented  ma, has most greedily over burdened  his head with hundreds of unnecessary loads. A well known most flourishing lawyer once complained to the Founder, on loosing health on account of sleeplessness. No medicine, no mantra, no repetition of sacred name, no sanctified waters, will work. The Founder fully disappointed, suggested, he should sleep with him for three nights. The next morning after the first night itself, the Founder laughed outright to himself. The lawyer got up in the morning   and with the beaming joy of the successful discovery, began to dictate to his assistants so many most important winning points of the cases to be conducted that day. As a matter of fact, during the daytime, he was doing only the routine work; where a s during the night hours, he was doing all his original and inventive work most concentratedly. How can the sleep come, when the doors are actually shut up against sleep, and the mind is most concentratedly busiest??
 If, each and every avenue of activity and relationship o yours, you lay down a standard, which you can cope up with, only by your own shortage being made up by outside agencies, and by exceptionally favorable circumstances expected to be cropping up or to be created by you or others, if you keep yourselves  always on the minus and ever deficient side, if you are determined to be always on the side of bankruptcy and begging and gain seeking, if there is no surplus in a single avenue of making up the shortage in so many other avenues ,if, in every dealing of yours, you have created a war to win,, if you begin and live your life  as a parasite counting on other’s blood, wherefrom can the relief  originate and bring you peace??  If you are running for everything best and highest, much more than  you deserve than your merit and worth, much more above what is just and fair, and much above your maximum earnings and energies, capacities and probabilities , where from can “peace” (“Shanti”) descend and pour itself?? If everyone expects others to make up his shortages, if there is nothing like a “credit” in any of all the accounts with all persons, of any relationship, of any variety, even God Almighty cannot make you peaceful and happy. How long can only “taking” without “giving” (except, when snatched) last?? Peace can proceed in two ways only, by the satisfaction of the desires or their annihilation. If, by the time your ten desires are fulfilled, twenty new desires fill their place, with yet higher forcefulness, where is the hope?? Unless you turn your steps towards the self-denying path, your demand for peace and happiness is only modesty worded  and but it is in reality  a demand for the world’s conquest.

    In fewest words, “Shanti” or tranquility proceeds from “Naishkarmyaa” or inaction; and “Sukha” or happiness proceeds from “Tyaaga” or relinquishment. First, have the rationalistic, unclouded, unambiguous, crystal clear understanding about God, Guru, Religion and Religiosity. Then begin the “Sadhana” of harmonizing all the different tunes within yourself, by actual practice, be they only of the simplest nature, and of the smallest type, as described before. Be as much unattached as possible. Let every worldly activity be, only as inevitable exception to your standing orders of “maximum observance of Inaction”. You will see the preliminary peacefulness dawning over your soul, in your mind and heart.

After a fairly good harmonization, you will be able to form a conception, in your mind. There can be no reflection in a dirty, impure, muddy and ever stirred up lake, with rushes of in flaws and out flaws. After that a picture or stabilized reality is formed there automatically results on the concentration thereon, the “Naishkarmyaa” (Inaction), as also “Tyaaga (Relinquishment). At this stage, when your own world becomes practically dead for you, you get the superior “Shanti” and the preliminary “Sukha” (happiness). When at the higher stage, when you surrender yourself with everything of yourself, including your soul, to your ideal “Upaasya” (that which is worshipped and meditated upon), you have both the highest tranquility and the highest happiness.(Shanti and Sukha).

Every saint has said the same things. Each saint is spending his life, to make the dish more and more tasteful, attractive and acceptable. But, what is the use, when the stomach itself has got deranged? And when the mind has taken a nausea?  All the same, rivers cannot remain without running. That is the long and short of the whole phenomenon. Saints are potassium permanganate tablets, or fishes, to keep the world water clear.
They too are under the pulling of an irresistible force , to do their assigned work and part. A man is drowning in a river; there are two man standing on the bank; one of them speaks wrathfully,"I had told you thrice not to go deep.";  he turns his back and goes home, altogether without any sorrow ( being a fatherly saint or an Adwaitist) ; there is another man (a motherly saint) who runs to the  opposite shop,  takes a rope coil and flings it up in the river towards the drowning man  and shouts"catch the end , and I will put you out "; the rope coil is hundred feet long and the drowning man is still 50 feet still further away.The man is drowned. The world only laughs at the man saying "Was it ever possible?even a child could have seen he was much further away ."The world has  nothing better to offer, except ridiculing on such failure .The world has no eyes to see that although the drowning man was not saved , he would have been saved if he had been within 100 feet, or if the rope coil  had been 50 feet longer .Nor does the world know about so many of them , that has been invisibly profited  within 100 feet , at least with the courage of catching up the rope in case they had any diffidence about their swimming capacity. 

Most in the world wants plantains on Cactus-hedges.If , by chance, they collide with some Mother or Motherly saint , they want her or Him to serve them , right from feeding morsels to the removal of bedpans during sickness, without an iota of feeling of gratitude. "How to live a peaceful happy life"is the hardest problem for the whole world since it began .All investigation and thinking appear to have ended in every case , with the conclusion of an impossibility of any permanent solution. The real thing is the solution is already there , repeated by saints from time to time  with monotony breaking new expressions , new ways, new permutations and new combinations. But the world want something else , and something other than too well known solution, and something new like a magic wand, which require nothing to be done  by persons desiring  spiritual benefits .However, during the world's search of truth , peace and happiness, not finished and never to be finished , Incarnations and Saints have emancipated and saved  millions.



[ 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." ]
