In the first place, don't denounce "woman". If at all you do, don't bracket with wealth.It is only one sided and blind man's judgment. When you reach that high stage of spirituality when non-attachment becomes goal of your Sadhana, you have to practice for attainment of proofness against sex attraction.But that you can as well do , without denunciation and hatred. Condemnation is wrong remedy and a harmful teaching.It is great injustice that such a parrotry should be repeated John, Dick or harry, or by envious members in a family, to break the happy blending of a husband and a wife , or by an evil eyed friend , of if for ne serious reasons, at least for slighting and belittling, be the speaker a drunkard, or a pauper or profligate. This misunderstood and misinterpreted religious licence given to men against women stands entirely cancelled, rejected and even condemned , under Mai-ism.
Launching a crusade against wealth and women is, in reality, a stage of declaring war against worldliness itself; and let us think deeply, how few are prepared honestly and un-hypocritically to accept such hard requirements of a religion. Man must have reached a certain stage before he comes to this.Man must have felt, he is in a dilemma. On one side, the practical impossibility of living without the help of a woman, and on the other, the possibilities of downward pullingness. And he must have decided in favor of resisting the latter , with necessary determination for sacrifice.
It is only at that stage of a man that only as a temporary measure, like the wooden centering while constructing an arch sets, and not there after.
Hindu scriptures have found out the most efficient and practical solution regarding the above stated dilemma ."The chaste faithful and religious wife, that victimizes herself for the sake of her husband, without absolutely and special exertion of her own for herself on the spiritual lines." Few religious men have however an all agreeable wife . Once the Divine Mother decides to make a "Narayan" नारायण of a certain "Nara"नर , She sets up every machinery to grind the unhewn diamond to the required shape and lustre , and to be without deformity, disproportion and depreciation.
A devilish eye and a demonish tongue in respect of woman (Mother Site too was not saved), is the greatest handicap for righteous, religiosity-seeking Sister world. The world has thrown its prowess only to the virtuous, weak and meek. This too, Mai-ism strongly objects to, in practical routine social life.
Let us go still deeper. Can we think Menakaa was, or any woman is, a life less statue? She too was soul and a spirit, with ambition and desire.We are entirely in the dark. It is quite like that Menakaa might have put her maximum infatuating powers to their highest mettle.She would felt the pride of being the possessor of a such a mighty sage of wonderful austerities. What is then the subtle most conclusion? Do not en foolishly condemning woman. Don't idiotically find fault with Almighty for creation of sex-attraction Don't be sitting on judgment throne an don't sat-mp highest souls with you labels of good and bad , moral and immoral; but yourself be increasing your resistance power against infatuating power, by practise and Sadhana while living in the world itself, with Mother's mercy and Guru's grace.
Please understand the inner truth, in absolute thinking.There is an invisible incomprehensible and long-sustained warfare in the progress path of every soul, of an Infatuating power and a Resisting -power. A success or a failure in any particular case prove nothing in absolute "yes” or “No” terms. A resistance power of 2000 units will vanquish an infatuating power of 1000 units and will have a moral victory, but the very same units power will suffer a humiliating defeat at the hands of 5000 units infatuating power. There is no greater delusion than to call as victorious one who had no foe or a negligible foe , to fight. The final achievement is the resistance power. Power of how many units is the test. And that Sadhana of a man has in its requisite, the training of a Motherliness-seeing eye. Looking from the higher plan, it is wrong even to imagine infatuating power with woman and to identify resistance power with man. Most unfortunately, we as “men” have absolutely no idea of the women’s mental and emotional world. That is sealed book and packet. Men have imagined women’ feelings and written, but we have little literature authenticated by women writers. For women, a man can be an infatuating power and in such a case it is she that has to develop the resistance power.
I am determined the pull the reader high up, in this most important subject about which the greatest ignorance prevails.Is your wrestling Gymkhana competition, your enemy? You or I can pass our whole life , taking every acre never to go near waters and have no fear of drowning , but what about a sailor's son? A circus lady proprietor purchased her dearest son from high swing, with men to catch him in the net, on the ground.In a word, neither hating nor evading can give you the finality. The jump from the high swing is surely a downward jump , that will break neck, noes and bones , if Mother's Grace does not station various net holders. But let once for all, your anti outlook go. The fact remains and is there , viz., that, before you reach perfection, you have to acquire the resistance power against sex-infatuation, sex attraction and finally , sex notion itself. If Mother's mercy and Guru's grace are there , how wonderfully circumstances are created, how the resistance power is developed and how a man is made proof, are most mysterious subjects, which few have tried and dared to touch and reveal!!
In a word, Mai-ism says, do not blame the mirror showing your face -eruptions.They have originated from your own bad blood.
Regarding woman, what is your value for her, before and after marriage, during the period of your imagining her to be a shadow that will never fail to follow you? Where does every value disappear, when you find her to be a life-long pest, and an iron steel chain around your feet, hands and neck ? Why go over long periods ? What value do you set on her, when she is pleasant and agreeable and obedient, and how do you cherish her when she is otherwise ? The great Rishi Yagnavalkya ऋषी याज्ञवल्कल्य said " Nothing is dear to us, because of itself, but because, our own soul is dear to us and things help us to be deriving happiness for our own selves". Today, you have an infatuation, and tomorrow, a hatred, for the very same woman.
How blamable are poor they !!! Wealth, woman or world !!! The whole scene changes with this understanding and conviction. From hating wealth and woman, especially the latter, to killing your desires. Least dreamt-of change !!! So long as your desires don't die, your infatuation for both won't die. Study yourself all your scriptures and visit all saints and all places of pilgrimages and worship every deity, and make your conclusions. Mai-ism repeats : Let the gaslight go, not by your sudden violent switching ; no wildness ; every cool-mindedness ; no balance-loosing ; no injurious and reactionary remedy of generating hatred. Let the light go of itself, because there is no oil-drop for the light to draw its nourishment from.
"No belittling; no blaming ; no blasphemy, no hating and evading woman " is the first Mai-istic teaching, the primary teaching. A whole-hearted effort has also been made by so many welfare-wishing saints to create a nauseating sense, by referring to the dirty constituents as scum, phlegm, mucus, bile, urine, blood, puss, etc, Surely, that is also a way, but at quite an elementary stage, when man has no other cause for his agitation, except the physical beauty. Such one will be surely saved by such a teaching. The world has however gone much ahead, materialistically and intellectually. Deformities can be covered up, with artificialities. There is very little of natural living in this age, and the perverted intellect of an infatuated man gives a retort " Are not men's bodies made up of every similar dirtiness? Where is the justification for any nausea ?". Finished ; mouth-gagged !! The said nausea-creating-remedy is of the past ages, and is out of date and out of application, at present. You may continue your old-inherited-parrotry; that is all. Infatuation arises not simply out of physical personal beauty, or the bodily charm, and only as a hunger for corporal enjoyment. Perhaps, the underlying wisdom of this teaching is : " If all your discrimination and lamp of light has extinguished, atleast, stop before, and desist from, physical action." But, on the whole, that teaching has proved entirely inefficient. It was an extremely useful teaching, when people believed they were saved from perils of a dire hell, by atleast not falling into the physical sin. The devil has, however now, dived much deeper.
" Kill your desires " is therefore the second teaching. Not simply the desire of sexual connection, but kill all desires. Reduce the sum-total of all your desires; and, as this sum-total goes on diminishing automatically, you will be surprised to find that the infatuation, the temptation, and even the value of wealth and woman, go down. When the fever is high, there is head-ache, joints-pain, exhaustion, distaste, etc. When the fever goes, everything goes. When a Jhinghari horde's head (chief man ) with his ferocious soldiers is at your City gates, streets of wisdom will be deserted, there will be market-attacks, house-breaks, pillages, quarrels, fights, cruelties and casualties. When he leaves the City, there is not a single locust of his soldiers staying behind. You yourself will be surprised with their sudden disappearance and the normal peacefulness restored. When the lake dries up, fishes, water-fowls and alligators all disappear, without any effort on your part. When does that Jhinghari chief (head) go?? When you approach your prince (of Soul), and hand over all your possessions saying " Nothing is ours ", and when the prince is awake and kills or drives the Jhinghari-chief out. You have to wake up your Soul, ceasing your little-self to be the master, the actor and the owner. When the Jhinghari-head goes, the smallest remnant of evil annihilates itself, most automatically. Approach therefore your prince (Soul), or, the Regent Supreme Mother- Queen (MAI).
739 - D. "Kill your desires" is the mots well known old teaching , but the generalization and the automatic disappearance of all the pigmy depredators, on their chief (head) being vanquished by the prince or by the Mother Queen , has not been equally emphasized. It will take centuries for some , especially for muddled men, to appreciate that the simplest fewest least incomprehensible, least unfamiliar teachings, stated in the most straight way and in a manner, childlike and stripped of all secrecy , and in the plainest and easiest language, will surely carry you, much quicker to the Final Truth. Simple-most and easiest and familiar most things are nearest the stage of Truth Realization. The world thinks just the reveres!!! The world is not for the believing that such a hand-folded-sittingness-remedy as "fasting" can cure a disease.
Let us think of the third stage; and please note , just as the Founder is of opinion that Dwaitism and Adwaitism are not two different schools, but the latter is a continuation of the former ; so, here too, he states, any higher stage is attainable only after the lower stage is gone through, more or less, even though for an extremely short period, and most progressively. After not hating and evading (the first stage), "Killing especially the six desires and killing all desires all told" (the second stage) comes the third stage . Yes; "kill your desires "-most precious teaching. But that too is not a small thing. It is a terrible job of restless activity, a constant fighting and never ending business of carrying blood shed and conducting crusade . That too is again Rakta-Beeja-killing Herculean task. Every drop that falls on the ground creates thousand of Rakta Beejas. You conquer lust and greed, but from their ashes , often emanate pride,, anger, hatred and power craving, etc. " Why not ask Mother to kill the Rakta Beeja for you ? You be doing what Mother bids you to do , but let Mother kill the Rakta Beeja (demon)." That is the secret of the secrets and the remedy of remedies; and that is Mai-ism.
Go ahead slowly, silently , steadily with continued caution and constant alertness. Your ;love and surrender are no small powers for your gradually increasing victory.Who would be playing games and showing prowess to an innocent Mother's child?? Let there be no exasperation and no blood boiling wrathfulness of the battlefield warrior, determined to kill or die. Next, the fourth stage below.
Don't entertain deadly inimical feelings, even for your foibles. Deal with them gently, but resolutely,, successfully and conqueringly. Besides the painful laborious and uncertain way of "killing desires" through Gnana, here, there is the further devotional way of love and sweetness all around , with non-attachment and surrender. When you become an inmate of Mother's mansion, and the child of the Royal Place, you are safe. Who would kill an innocent child?? Have any time heard of dacoity carried out in the decoit's Bhaanjaa's (sister's son's) house?
Why killing and why any deadly enmity?? "Come on, Maamaa मामा, Kaama-Raajaa काम राजा (maternal uncle Cupid), and come on Maashi Dhanaa -Trishnaa माशी धन-तृष्णा (materanl aunt, Wealth-craving); welcome, I would have given you, royal reception, but all the children (enjoyment senses) have gone to the Grandmother (Mai), there is none in this house and there is nothing in the whole house.!!!" Who would exert to break open the old lock in the front wall of a dilapidated cottage which contains nothing but dust and debris?? Be yourself nothing, handling all your things to Mother, and leave the cottage to take care of itself.
Is it possible? Can an earth-crawling ant ever go to a high terrace?? Yes, it can, provided it sticks itself to the lotus feet of its pigeon, its dearest dove.
Utilise all methods, freezing, sublimating, evaporating, distilling, whichever is placed before you by Merciful Mother. But, moderately and persuasively , and not in a violent drastic manner of coercion, compulsion and consternation.

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." ]
