Men to manage themselves.

There comes a stage for the head of a large family when every member has turned control-less, rebellious, pleasure-dipped, proof to any advice, scolding or punishment. A father punishes a boy, keeps him starved for a certain vice . The boy suffers, cries for mercy, but does not improve a bit. No change.If at all any change , that is for the worse. That irreparable stage comes in . And then the Father is tired of doing his best finally runs  away leaving all members to cut each others throats. That is the present stage of the modern age. God has left men to manage their world themselves. Our miseries  as of today are the results of the cruelties of man to man, their darkest ignorance, their swollen headed-ness on knowing a fringe of the God’s mystery , which they call Western science. What can man make out of that knowledge is only the devastation and destruction. What is the highest victory and glory of science ? What can monkey do on finding a torch ? An atom bomb !!!It will burn the whole world. And yet still the wisdom does not dawn. One of the best scientist has called ” Man, the unknown”. Some supreme scientists bow their head to God but the fifth standard boy who has just begun to learn water is H 2 O turns his head as a dis-carder of Almighty.Has not the world still full experience of wars, , famines, wholesale slaughters, atom bombs etc ? May Mother make some wise men to think, we must have our Mother in middle of us all reconciled  and well behaved to one another !!

The secret of self-improvement

The secret of self-improvement is “Contact with people in better society, better environment and better atmosphere “. If you have the Guru – Shishya relationship with a worthy Guru, that problem is mainly solved. That, however, cannot be good-luck of everyone.

Take as a unit the dealing-region of yourself with your God, guru, wife, life-long friend and so on. Each relationship is a simple unit. Take further a complex unit of yourself with your father’s family, your own family, your relations, your society of friends, your professional brothers, your caste-people, your community people, your locality people, your co-disciples and your co-workers in common cause. There is a great wonderful course that each unit exerts on an individual. The self-preservation instinct is at work. None wants to be thrown out, abandoned and cast to the winds. A man may not care for being moral and virtuous, or for being religious, but he wants the fullest sympathy of the society and of the immediately surrounding people around. Just study a few cases, of vast changes in different families coming over to reside in a big cosmopolitan city. Customs, habits, prejudices, manners, purdah-importance, jealousy, outlook-narrowness, husband-superiority, stinginess, quarrelsomeness, callousness, bluntness, ruffian-ism, in the heart within – everything change so wonderfully and in no time. The inner pinch of self-interest and self-preservation and the desire of gaining a higher and higher footing is there at full work.

Let therefore the wisest man be extremely careful about his selection of his simple units and complex units. In spite of the highest boast of intellect and originality, man is, after all, an apish imitator and a social creature with a gregarious mentality. Man cannot live without some association with some human beings. Group formations and group isolation are only manifestations of human nature. That is natural and even indispensable, for the purpose of self-improvement, spontaneous pleasure and the maximum efficiency and relishfulness of life. The social fear of being thrown out, asocial boycott, is no small remedy to keep everyone straight and obedient to the common collective rules, customs and living ways and beliefs (at least the express ones) of every group.

Take a complex unit. After all the additions and subtraction, that particular unit has its positive attributes, say one unit has goodness, morality, virtue and religiousness; another unit has badness, immorality, vice and irreligious-ness. Each group unit exerts a certain influence on every individual of a group and tries to pull and conquer the same to be nearer and nearer the central attribute. Everyone likes to be in intimate touch with others of the same ways. Everyone feels at home, ridden of all constraints in one’s own group alone. Everyone gets extremely uneasy and constrained in a foreign environment, and everyone tries to be more or less like the group to which one belongs.

Thus a good unit will turn the worst into worse, the worse into bad, the bad into good, the good into the better, the better into best. A bad unit will turn the best into the better, the better into good, the good into bad, the bad into worse, the worse into worst. That is why collective degeneration travels many times much faster than individual degeneration.

Good individuals placed in bad units, have most helplessly to be bad. These are chains, in which individual links have no strength, and often, the maximum strength of the chain itself is nothing more than that of the weakest link in the chain. Good man in bad units, have to bad for self-defense and self-preservation. They have to be an indiscernible drop of the same water. Further every one’s most natural desire to go higher and higher in rank, in one’s society, he wants to stand high with goodness; if in bad one, by badness. He wants to win the general applause ” I am well-known someone ” – egoistic pleasure. No force is as massive as the mass-force. If turned to politics, it may bring independence. If turned to religion, it may bring back universal true religiosity in a few decades. A regularly established automatic special huge machinery works wonders. It is because of the fullest knowledge of the highest efficiency of this machinery working, that religious have stooped to laying down certain rules and customs, for the smooth and efficient running, and maintaining the general efficiency of different groups. This most wonderfully working force must be prominently before the minds of religious reformers when they take up any religious rejuvenating work if solid practicability has to be achieved.

The grace of a Personal God is more easily attainable

The grace of a Personal God is more easily attainable than the Impersonal God.
God reveals Himself unto those who completely surrender themselves unto him, those who have no intellectual or emotional resistance to Him.
Before God, the most accomplished of humans is but a child; even the most brilliant scientist does not know why or how God created this world. The Lord is not interested in how much one knows, but to how much one loves Him.The only way to touch Him is by the ardent devotion of the heart.- KALYAN KALPTARU

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

God as Universal Divine Mother

Mother is the same Almighty whom some call Father, some the Supreme Self,some the Nature, some the Divine Law, some the Absolute,some the Truth and so on. She is God, but conceived as Mother.

Mother is that infinite which remains after all negations. Mai is Brahma-Svarupini.

God as Father is JUSTICE and God as Mother is LOVE & MERCY.God as Father or God as Mother means, God that deals with us in fatherly manner or motherly manner.

Mother ignores,forgives and forgets which the Father does not, so very easily and not that extent of pity and mercifulness compassion and condescension. None knows the ailment of a child as Mother, without even a communicating syllable. Mother’s compassion alone can save us.

Once you become Hers, She has Her own ways,Her Own arrangements and adjustments.Once you enroll yourself as Hers, the remaining task is Hers. Be a Mother’s child. Love,Service,Devotion and Self Surrender are the best paths for worshiping Her.

Mother has helped families out of calamities, beyond imagination, only on a mere appearance of self surrender to Her.

Mother’s ways of protection are unknown to us.

Mother runs to the succour of Her devotees by thousand legs.

MOTHER NEVER FAILS TO DO WHAT IS BEST IN THE INTERESTS OF HER DEVOTEES ON PRAYING TO HER FOR RELIEF.

Motherhood is the highest conception of God if you wish to be saved from irreligion, materialism,atheism and satanism.

In a religious act, God’s grace propitiation and returns are guaranteed.
Come what may, don’t leave Mother’s Lotus feet.You have a right to the Mother’s feet and Lap.It is god and god’s grace that opens the door but knocking leads to it.

The worship of universal Mother is the only method of attaining all human desires; the repetition of Her secret and sacred names is the best way to approach Her. If Mother’s Grace is there, one does not need any Guru’s initiation as Mother is all Mantras.

The simplest method of worship is by prayer. It may be for spiritual grace or some particular moral and legitimate benefit or relief.

The worship of Mother is an invocation to the Eternal Mother to bring forth not simply salvation of individuals but saviors and liberators of millions.

Blessed be Her name ! Clarified be Her conception ! Universalized be the outlook of Her devotees ! In showers fall Her grace on all of Her all wayward children desirous of being reclaimed !

Nothing is of any real avail if the unbelief is there. ~ Saint Shri Mai Swarup. / Universal Mai-ism Trust , Mumbai, India 400054   / MAI-ISM  / Mother and Mother’s Thousand Names 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mai principally means God as Universal Mother, Universal Father

MAI principally means God as Universal Mother, Universal Father, Universal Mother-Father or Universal Father-Mother of one and all human beings, one creatrix  or creator of all created beings or things, who is most pleased and showers peace, prosperity, health, wealth, joy and happiness on them that have been living the life of universal love and service to God’s all children, and of devotion and unconditional cheerful self-surrender to the Divine Will of the Final-most God of any conception that any one accepts. ~ Saint Mai Swarup Mai Markand / Mai-ism

Mother’s Grace – most expeditious

People have often misunderstood God’s or Mother’s Grace. It does not invert justice nor give an exemption. It carries you most expeditiously with every protection and guidance, but surely, through the right channel, and teaching you to be fully obedient to the Divine Laws. If that were not so, everyone would be breaking the law, shed few tears of right or wrong repentance, and the result would be, that the Divine Law would be the object of insignificance, ridicule and mockery. This extremely delusive notion, as result of greatest exaggeration, though not deliberate, and so very natural with them that have experienced Mother’s Grace, must go. A safer thing would be, to get a direct answer from the Grace recipients on the point, and not to jump and run rampant, as you like, to form your own inferences and conclusions. Get your answer from your Grace recipients to the direct question,” Is Mother’s Mercy a licence? ” Mother is not being to be trifled with.

688. We are bound to avoid all bad actions, words and thoughts. We cannot always stop bad thoughts coming to us, but we can at least be displeased with them and try to banish them and refuse to yield to them. Regarding what is good and bad, and right and wrong, in the preliminary stage, it is enough that one obeys the Inner Voice of Mother As Antaryaamini, which people, in general parlance, call “conscience”. Conscience is ever alive and ever-awake reality within us, which notes and records everything of ours, issues warning from time to time, and bites us from painful stings on our disobedience, during and after.

689. Not to speak of the rare cases of temptations, passions and provocations, the man who has practised control over his six enemies enumerated before, is a much higher man, than one who has not known their working and has never practised the strengthening of his will to be the last succumbing to them. Not to use personification, we can call the six enemies to be our six vices and one has to be extremely careful about his vices and virtues and their doings in life. A certain virtue of a man is his strength of doing good actions of a certain type, effortlessly, repeatedly and promptly. A certain vice is similarly an inclination towards bad actions, of a certain nature which one drives one to the action unless strongly controlled with a determined will and effort.

690. Elementarily, the spiritual aspirant may have the following notions, regarding the different terms while practising self-control.
Kama or Desire is the inner urge, which makes us indulge in thoughts and imaginations of a certain pleasure, usually denied.

Krodha or anger is the hot and strong feeling against somebody, who or which comes in the way of the fulfilment of our desires, which displeases us, and makes us attack, injure or destroy the disliked circumstances, objects or passions.

Lobha or avarice is a passionate desire of possession of things , which we can not possess in usual course, without going out of the righteous and just way of things, which prompts us to be unfair , which disturbs our mind with discontent and makes us dead to the delicate feelings, in the matter of consideration for the happiness of others . The accelerated with the speed with which we desire and strive for happiness and self-serving, more and more, and yet more, and with discontent, is the broader variety of Lobha itself.

Mada or pried is an extremely over-exaggerated notion of ourselves, which results in our contempt and ill-treatment for and to others inferior to us, and a feeling of independence, easy provocation, and rebelliousness, against those that are superior to us.

Moha or infatuation is the climax condition of a certain desire, which makes you lose all your sense of judgement and action, and bodily and mental.
Matsar or jealousy, is the bitterness of heart experienced on seeing others happier, better off and possessed of certain qualities or advantages more than you, which you do not possess, but are desirous of possessing.
