For the elucidation of those who desire to know more about Mai, Maiji, Mai-ist and Mai-ism, it is added and repeated here that Mai is the Universal Mother, the Motherhood conception of God Almighty, easily propitiable by a living a life of Love, Service,Devotion and Unconditional Cheerful Self Surrender, and by the recognition of the coequal status of man and woman.
Any idol,image,symbol or emblem, picture or the sacrificial altar or any object, installed anywhere, either in a Church or a Temple or a Mosque or Synagogue, and worshipped by any people in any manner and any mode they decide, with any gospel or scriptures they prefer, but based on the conception that it represents Universal God, whether Mother or even Father or Jointly as Mother & Father etc., easily propitiable on living the life on the lines of above stated tenets , by itself, is Mai or the Universal Mother.
Similarly any preceptor preaching or teaching or propagating or inculcating the doctrine of Universal religion with Mai, the Universal Mother as its pivot and rallying focus and wedded to the said tenets, is Maiji of that particular group or area or generation or even age.
The followers of the Universal Religion of Mai-ism, with Universal Mother or Mai as the Universal God, easily propitiable on living out the oft repeated principles, whether they form individuals or groups or associates or multitudes or adherents or co-workers or devotees, are all Mai-ists. Mai-ists that have taken their oath of allegiance are U.R.M.s of general or life-long oath.
The doctrine of Universal Religion entwined round Mai the Universal Mother, with its said indispensable cardinal principles of love, service, devotion and unconditional self-surrender and recognition of the spiritual co-equal status of man and woman, is Mai-ism.
These universal conceptions and interpretations represent the quintessence of the Universal Religion of Mai-ism and it is this , that has been meant to be conveyed whenever the terms MAI, MAIJI,MAI-ISTS and MAI-ISM are used, under the universal religion of Mai-ism.
Well, then, let us come to practical measures . Maiji personally believes, that there is no sense in confining ourselves to the conception of any Universal religion, unless it is entwined round Universal God, as has been amply proved from all experiments after 1893 when the first Parliament of All Religions was convened in Chicago, which has practically shown no results except mere noisy and barren activities of having built mere castles in the air.It is high time , that if individual religions want to survive the onslaught of materialistic world, they must all unite and offer the consolidated resistance.
Universal Mai-ism lays down only six principles : (1) Universality; (2) Love; (3) Service; (4) Devotion; (5) Self-Surrender; and (6) Spiritual co-equal status of man and woman.
By Mai’s grace, a large consolidation of Universal Religionists has already been established. In the immediate future , it is very possible that groups of universal religionists, Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Jain, Zoroastrian Mai-ists may be formed. Such groups have their full independence and autonomous powers in all matters and details , except being out of rhyme with the above mentioned six principles. All such institutes can be as federations to the parental conception and institute of Universal Mai-ism. Any such universalized group may have its own temple, god, gospel, worshipping modes, rules and regulations , places ( temples and monasteries ) and PROPERTIES, in respect of which none others can have any right of dabbling. The smallest size booklet of Mother’s Message will convince anyone of the Mai-istic truth on page 8.” A Universal Religion cannot be permitted being made a cause for disunion, domination, prejudice , exploitation or superstition ……”
