633. Why so much cry against Guru-acceptance ?No doubt, there may be some few cases of confidence being betrayed , but the main reason is absence of humility, over estimate of one's self and greatest reluctance to pay the price in terms of love and service , devotion and surrender to the Guru. When you associate with others , you have the pleasure of being worshipped  if others are inferior to you. On the other hand you have to be worshippers when they are superiors. You are in search of worshippers and therefore the superiority of Guru pinches you. Here to, I have observed my usual observation. People loose their commonsense when they enter the realm of religion. One of the Founder's intimate acquaintances , a high class Government officer, once told him " I hate the very idea of seeing Gurus garlanded. It is a cruel murdering of the principle of equality. My head turns at the idea , a disciple should garland  a Guru". Once that friend talked over to the Founder , on returning from the place of long tour of several official visits. The in charges of some places garlanded this hater of Guru-garlanding . he said to his friend ," There are very few men of my staff who know what is gratefulness.Such few alone garlanded me during my tour and did their duty. Other people , I hate. They never once thought  where they would have been , but for my raising them  from pay to pay and post to post." Should they not even do such a simple nominal thing as garlanding their bared-giver , when he goes to them for an official visit??"
635. For the time being, close your eyes to what you are. First concentrate on securing Mother’s Mercy through the Guru. Nothing is so powerful as the repetition of the sacred name of your deity, be it Mother, Rama, Krishna, Shiva, Shakti, Surya, Ganesh or Allah or Christ, whoever he be, getting the Mantra from your Guru. Fire on day and night, whenever and wherever you find leisure. You will come to a stage. Be serving your Guru and worshipping deity in different ways, most concentratedly, at least for some time. One hour daily for about six months will assure you, there is an appreciable change in your outlook.
636. Here much depends on the intrinsic value of your Guru, to put it in simplest language, the intensity of love between the Guru  and the worshipped and the love between the Guru and the worshipped, and the love between the Guru and Shishya and the intrinsic worth of the Guru and the disciple.
Founder quotes an interesting instance in “Mai Guru Ananya Bhakti”.
There was a Madrasi devotee  whom the Founder met in a train. He was repeating Shodashakshari highest Mantra of Mantras. He had decided to finish one lac (100,000) repetitions. His one lac repetitions finished on Belgaum station. Founder also got in to the second class where that Madrasi devotee was the only passenger (in olden days). Founder was in the English dress and Madrasi with sacred ashes smeared all over his body. One was to all appearance in Mlechchha and the other a Mahadev. The devotee got suddenly an idea that the foretelling of his own Guru viz. that he will meet a great devotee of Tripura Sundari  on his finishing one lac, was perhaps to be true in meeting this new man, the Founder. He tried to enter in religious conversation with the Founder, but the Founder curtly replied and began to answer like an irreligious man who had no soft corner whatsoever  for religion itself.
On the next halting station, the devotee got down and changed his compartment. On the further stopping station, a man with a decent Rumal turban in coat and pant, collar and neck-tie, entered Founder's compartment and sat by Founder's side. Founder looked in his face and astonishingly asked him," Please excuse me. I think I have seen you somewhere." That man smiled and prostrated to him while saying," Yes, on the Belgaum station". Founder saw he was the same man and before he completely prostrated, lifted him up and embraced him most fervently. Said that man with a smile," Bhaktaraj? Now at least you will talk with me heart to heart. I am no longer that fanatic orthodox Brahmin you thought me to be. No?? ". The Founder attaches small value to the ceremonial part. He thought of giving the devotee an additional experience and pleasure. He began to sing the very Shodashakshari Mantra in Khamacha tune. The gentleman got the proof. Both enjoyed spiritual ecstasy.
637.The point here to be emphasised, is that there is an inviolable connection between the completion of a certain number of japams, if done with devotion and single-mindedly , and some happening which immediately assures you about the efficiency of the Mantra repetition. If there is no result, take it, there is something wrong with you; continue till you have convincing proof.
638. When you reach this stage, you have a current account in an International Bank. You can move in any part of the world, with only a cheque book, taking care to see that you do not overdraw and you go on depositing.
639. You are the owner of a boat in the ocean of this worldliness .You have the most favorable wind of Mother’s Mercy. At the helm, sits your Guru, and you are busy rowing on both sides – the Purushaartha of this life and the Praarabdha of the past lives. Many commit blunders here. Many think they have achieved the goal, on getting a good practice of Mantra repetitions. As a matter of fact this is only securing an equipage , for further journey. The aspirant has simply secured the Mother's Armour and Guru's Shield . The fight he has yet to be launched in.
640. He has to fight a hard fight on the one hand and keep himself fully invigorated with Deity's devotion and Guru's service, on the other. 
The Founder gives a beautiful traditional popular instance of a serpent and a mungoose fight in a forest. The mungoose strikes his nail and serpent blows his poison and seeks opportunity to bite. Whenever the mungoose gets giddy on being poisoned, he runs into a deep hole , wherein there is some motherly herbage , which removes the poison and gives him a redoubled energy .After repeated alternate fights  and meditations, etc., the mungoose kills the serpent.

[ 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." ]
