MAI-ISM has its origin in the Motherhood conception of God Almighty. Mother is the very same God whom the world has worshipped till now; mainly as Father. Mother is sexless, and therefore, beyond He, She or It and is therefore, the very same as Father. “MAI” is the Hindi word for “Mother”, “Mai-ism ” offers to the world , in this trying times, when the world needs highest mercy of the Almighty, the conception of Universal Mother, to be worshipped by one and all, who are universal minded, religious, God fearing and God loving.
Mai-ism the psychological religion for one and all of any religion or no religion without caste, creed or colour. With full reverence to and while following one’s own religion , one can be a Mai-ist. Mai-ism is one’s own personal religion to be adopted after the age of discretion and not merely one’s ancestral religion of one’s birth.
Mai (Mother) is not Maya or Illusion-Creator, nor Shakti or Power requiring separate Controller, not Father’s Wife, not the Fifth Hindu Deity, not Mother Kali, not Mother Mary, not God’s handmaid, not Demon’s slayer, not Mother that is pleased with animal or human sacrifices, not Mother of thieves and dacoits, not Mother of rebels revolutionaries, not Mother of Black-Magicians, Ughra-Sadhaks, Ghat-Kunchuki Dev-dasis or Vamachars.
Mother is essentially the Ocean of Infinite Love and Mercy, Mother is human mother vested with Omnipresence, Omniscience and Omnipotence and raised to Infinity and Godhood. Mai is to Mai-ist what a human mother is to her child.
Under mai-ism, there is no place , by its very postulates, for the condemnation of Harijans as ‘untouchables, Woman’s subjugation by Man or condemnation by routine religion as “Narakasya Dwaram”(Hell’s Gate) has no room, as every Mai-ist is expected to look upon every woman (except his own wife) as representative form of Mother and as under Mai-ism the co-operation of man and woman in the Mother’s worship is the highest spiritualising force. The spirit underlying the words “Heathen”, “Kafir”, “Mlechcha”, “Durvan”, etc., has no existence under Mai-ism.
If the Universe is to be made hatredless happy home and if love , mercy and other qualities of heart, (the bankruptcy of which has been so keenly felt in the present world) are to reappear, Motherhood of god is the most favorable aspect and conception.
A universal evil needs a universal remedy, and the Grace of universally acknowledged common Parent of one and all. The Merciful-Mother parent. The Universal Mother.
A universal prayer offered to universally-conceived, universally-acknowledged universal Almighty, has its own undreamt-of miraculous efficiency, with followers of individual delimited vision can never imagine.
A universal call alone can have a universal response.
The six tenets of Mai-ism are :
1) God is more merciful when approached as Mother;
2) Mother is mother of all, without caste, creed or colour;
3) Mother smiles, on one’s trying to love All, to one’s best;
4) Mother saves, on one’s trying to serve All, with one’s best;
5) Mother showers (Her Grace) on one’s devotion to Her;
6) Mother serves, on one’s living the life of universal love and service, with devotion to Her and unconditional, cheerful self surrender to Mother’s Divine Will.
One who does not believe in god , but who does believe in the common tie of humanity and practises service and extends Love to all is a Mai-ist, because he is the follower of Mai in one of Her aspects as One Universal Soul, One Universal Consciousness or One Universal Cosmos, like unto the continuous string through rosary beads subjecting everyone of the Universe to the slightest influence anywhere in the whole.
A Mai-ist’s devotional ideal is :
“Practice feeling that you are a child A child whom a mother could not but accept, however wicked . You automatically get confidence you regain your innocence , purity and sincerity and you raise yourself above world-wormness, sexuality and selfishness. You are off your care. Time is eternity for you and therefor the burden of life is lightened. Be mother’s child and Her lap shall be thrilling and throbbing to have you on itself.”
