731. He would do so many things incognito. Once on the Kurduwadi [ कुर्डुवाडी - महाराष्ट राज्य  station , when the Founder was the chief officer of the Barsi Municipality [ बारसी म्युनसिपालटी ], in about 1916, he was waiting for long hours from evening to catch the Madras Mail arriving at 2 a.m. There was a lady passenger, rather beautiful, with a child. Some railway staff people were constantly eyeing her. They spoke with some words expressing their bad motive and she insulted them. There was a long waiting period. By chance the child eased itself. There was no water. The insulted people made most of the nuisance and harassed her as if some great crime were committed and took her to the station master. Soon there was a crowd. The crowd, with the station master and with her as a criminal was brought by them to the spot, to show the nuisance. They were all surprised. There was nothing. Someone has cleaned it off, with a big woolen muffler in a wintry night, which was seen thrown away at along distance. None knew the sweeper.
732. The Founder says," You must plunge into places of poverty and misery incognito, in torn cloths and study and share their miseries. You must utilize big crowds in processions and temples, to get insulted and ridiculed. The Founder to overcome nervousness and over-regard for the opinion of the society, once moved in a procession over a big round, putting on purposely selected torn and dirty clothes and sitting in an extremely dirty carriage. Those who recognised him and those who did not know him, all called him mad and laughed. To him it was a practice at 18, of overcoming the nature of servility for popular opinion. A regular programme, practice and a subtle watching of thoughts and feelings, to ascertain how far the mind and the egoistic pride or a certain vice is subdued, is an important requirement. It is in the circumstances of self-invited humiliation alone, that one day, your heart breaks to pieces on realisation of Mercy, that Mother has showered on you. Otherwise, you remain all your life ever discontented grunting pig, in your closed and covered den. These are supreme joys, which the enjoyers alone know and relish. The founder would often say to even high class best devotees- “Still your worldliness curtain is not torn.” “There is no tearing and bursting of your Self yet.”
733. The Founder says, “You have to actually pass through practices. Practically a life of some few years with decided programmes of the specimen given here. Any amount of good thoughts or best thoughts do not help you. They have their own value, when the mind is brought to a certain pitch of deeper receptivity, which is attained only when the mind is in the fullest concentrated form, either during hours of meditation or actually passing through certain practices and experiences of realistic action, especially after the event and during suffering. In other cases they do not go deeper than the relishful intellectual plane of thoughts and words. None of them enter, touch or make permanent indentations on the brain or heart, on the interior plan. Please note an extremely subtle fact; the mechanical fact that you have to and passed through certain practices gives you nothing. What you permanently gain is what your mind has received deepest indentations of, by way of an invisible asset, while passing through ordeals, mostly self invited.
734. The Founder says: Select some few men: one , who gets at once wild on any offence being given; second, who cannot remain without stealing as soon as he has a safe opportunity; a third man who is addicted to a drinking ; and  a fourth, who cannot resist a sexual passion on seeing a willing woman in safe solitude. Let all Pandits from Kashi काशी  to Rameshwar रामेश्वर  prepare a text book of wisdom, and a prayer book of wrathlessness, honesty, sobriety and morality. Let each man be made to read and pray for six months and then put them tests. You will find each one of them fails.
Founder says: “What of reading and praying?” Even when people see the drama of EAKCH PYAALAA एकच प्याला “One Peg Alone”, enacted before their eyes and shed buckets of tears on the ruin of drunkard’s family, the carving does not disappear. Man entirely forgets the force of habit, forms as a result of thousands of wrong actions done, of a particular nature in a particular direction in the past.
The only way is practice, the hard untiring practice. If you tie down a bundle of straight papers, for some long time, they become cylinder like, their bend depending on the time they remained so tied up. The only way to make them straight is to tie them up for a sufficiently long time, in the inverse way.
You get your success by actual practice over the smallest portion of the vice. The hard practice of your gaining more and more strength, which follows each success, is the only remedy. Put the iron in a little fire of experience and suffering , and then go on hammering with good literature, meditation, Guru-confession, repentance, self-imposed punishment, prayers and all the known methods of improvement.            
735. Practically you have to pass through a life of self-abnegation. When you have reached a stage when sinful pleasures are not acceptable to you, you have to pass great period of relish-less deadened life , as you are neither here nor there. The worldly sensual pleasures, especially sinful, you have banished yourself, with a determined vehemence and the other pleasures of devotion and divine knowledge, yoga with scriptural readings or scriptural rites and rituals, etc.  have not dawned. That period is the most sickening and suicide suggesting period. While on one side, you are on the side type of Sadhana साधना, you should also be developing your relations with your God and Guru. You will then have the relief and a different world to derive your pleasure from the Love and Service, Devotion and Self-surrender to your God and Guru. If those doors are not opened, you have to pass dry life of Vyaasdevji व्यासदेव , when Naarad नारद Muni मुनी  advised him to take the devotional writing of Bhagvat. It is the life of a man caught in the desert, who knows, that every water sip is fully material and every fruit is fully poisonous. Most excruciating period in a soul’s history.   
736. The last straw that breaks the camel's back is the wiping out of the sexual notion, when the difference over the sexual infatuation, pleasure and attraction.
You can train up your mind to be smiling with a mastered wrathlessness, you can be well contented in midst of any poverty; you can reach a stage when no desires make any agitation in your heart; you may rise above the idea of name and fame; you can be as humble as a straw; you may even bless even your enemy; but certain things are most difficult.  These are: (1) Proof-ness to sexual attraction, the wiping out of the sexual notion itself.(2) Infatuation ( moha मोह ) . (3) Proofness against final subtle most delusion spread over you, as a special case, by the Supreme Power  Maya माया  and (4) Life-clinging. Infatuation in its highest sense is, by its definition itself, beyond the possibilities of the control of  mind. Such infatuations do come and only the Divine Will of the Mother's Grace decides when they would disappear. No human effort can be of any avail. If a cloud conceals a moon, the only thing for you is to wait till cloud passes over. You can do nothing. It is a case of helplessness, like an eclipse or a swarm of locusts. All the thinking and reasoning faculties have to regain their working strength, after some lapse of time. Your “Purushaartha” पुरूषार्थ then is only praying to Mother for quick relief. Life clinging, even Markandeya मार्कण्डेय  could not conquer.

Re: Maayaa माया : On Maayaa’s highest plane, there are some rare cases of the highest souls , when Mother shows Her highest Mercifulness to them to give them the experience of the Final Invincible powers of Mother. The Finalmost conviction about man’s nothingness is often given by Mother finally through the experience of Her Invincible and Incomprehensible MAAYAA.
737. There are so many instances in Hindu traditions and Puranas. We are not talking of the ordinary experiences of Maya माया in the cases of ordinary people. We have the nicest recently recorded experience of Brahma advocate Totapuri तोतापुरी , when he went to drown himself in the river Ganges गंगा , to put an end to his excruciating pain .The Ganges went dried that night. He went on and on, until he almost reached the other bank. Yet the waters were not deep enough to drown him. Said he, “What a freak of Maya?” Maya माया would turn Yea into Nay, and vice versa. No embodied being can go beyond her jurisdiction, unless She was pleased to let him go.” He had not had even the freedom to die!! Maya is not to be conquered, but propitiated. 
The cases of Moha मोह  Infatuation ) and Maya माया  are beyond our ken. They are some special divine arrangements for some special purposes in life of some special persons. There are great wonderful forces of some inexplicable Prarabdha प्रारब्ध and some future all changing programme behind such cases. Parashar Muni पराशर मुनी  had an infatuation for Matsya Gandha मत्स्य गंधा. Behind that infatuation was the divine arrangement of the birth of Vyasdevji व्यासदेव who was an incarnation of Vishnu विष्णु  and to whom Hindus owe their religion.
738. Let us therefore stop with sexual-attraction-proofness. There too nothing can be done without Mother's perfect Grace. Mother however does arranges matters just as the Sannyasini संन्यासिनी , Bhairavi Braahmini भैरवी ब्राह्मणी  was sent to Ramakrishna रामकृष्ण  , for helping Her devotees to practice sexual uprooting  and sex-notion-annihilation. High souls can train up themselves with Mother's and Guru's Grace, to remain as unruffled as before a lifeless wooden bench with a lady's picture carved thereon. This process however so difficult to manage, as, unlike all previous practices, it is not one-sided mono practice. In most cases it is dangerous practice, unless Mother herself manages every detail. It can only be a perfect Guru in the shape of a lady that has also the fullest control over practitioner, his mind and body, if he at all slips. She must have strength to save him and pull him out, if on the point of sinking. Such guru Mother alone can depute, for the perfection of Her dearest souls alone but She does it is certain. No wise saint would give inkling about his practice of Sadhana in this direction, to the foolish fault finding defaming world. The annihilation of the sexual notion itself is yet still higher attainment, and here we drop the last curtain on the subject of Sadhana, in general, and that of very general talk about the same.   



[ 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." ]
