Let at least Thy devotees not suffer for no fault of theirs




The Founder of Maiism ( Mai Swarup Mai Markand i.e. Markand Ratanlal Dholkia  )  has an inward satisfaction when he knows Mother's Full Grace continuously showering on him. Mother gives dreams visions and messages to others and directly or indirectly informs others as if to say, Mai and Mai-Swarup are nearest, if not Mother and Son, or if not same and one, as some (Devotees or Adwaitins) may believe.

 But, then comes an extremely sorrowful wave of a lament-ful and yet turbulent mood. He goes to Mother and talks to Her "What have I to do with my recognition!!! Is that my goal or happiness?? No. I want the world to come forth with whatever sacrifice each one can make, to work with me, to spread Thy Glory and to revise the world's understanding of true religiosity, or, in other words, to spread Thy simple and straight Religion, make people of a better moral caliber, infuse true religiosity, make man-to-man relationship of a much superior order. There, I find a great cipher. Don't cheat me with hollow words of people's praises and prostrations. I want substantial results in life, Morality, Religiosity, peacefulness, security, stability, smoothness and all that is most sublimely beautiful and blissful in the living of mankind in general. 

Raise the minimum, something showered freely and mercifully on all persons even though they have no qualification of theirs except that they have life, except that they breathe in and out, like a blacksmith's bellows.

 I don't mean dabbling with the Divine Law of give and take, and of more progress, bliss and happiness to more deserving. 

Let that remain unconstrained and unaltered. Though effortless and unearned, yet everyone lives most mechanically a better life than the present one. Raise the minimum smoothness and peacefulness of average life of mankind. 

Let the happiness and misery, at the two extremities be much more heightened if that is necessary and inevitable, for exceptional few. 

Let there be wars, epidemics devastation diseases destruction etc., if people lose their divine sense and brains and throw all solicitations of thy devotees to winds with indifference and ridicule, and if suffering is the only way of bringing men to their senses, but let the neutral man live a much better life, with Thy Grace of raising the minimum. 

Let at least Thy devotees not suffer, for no fault of theirs, a for the only reason that they happen to be in the midst of the world's self-invited destruction and misery all around them.

 "If segregation or isolation is the only salvation remedy, if things can be made more smooth by a re-classification, do that. Do anything but let the world be much happier than now."
