Mai-ism : Some of the specific distinguishing features

Mai is the Hindi word for ‘Mother’. Mai-ism is the Universal psychological rational religion round the conception of the Motherhood of God as well, along with the Fatherhood of God mostly prevalent till now all over the world and even preferably for them that appreciate more. Mai is the Universal Mother of all human beings without any distinctions of religions, nations or communities etc., “Mai” under the preciseness of Mai-ism, further carries the notion that Mai is the Universal Mother of all, who is most pleased on living the life of Universal Love and Service with Devotion and unconditional cheerful Self Surrender to the Divine Will.
Some of the specific distinguishing features of Mai-ism are :-
1. It seeks the reconciliation and unification of all different individual religions.
2. It raises the status of Motherhood, Sisterhood, Daughterhood and Womanhood to be co-equal with the Fatherhood, Brotherhood, Sonhood and Manhood. Mai-ism believes that in as much as the whole world is pervaded with and works with the masculine and feminine elements, forming component parts as proved even by science , no religion and no progressive evolutionary process can be perfect without the acceptance of the co-equal status of man and woman.
3. Requirement, theology and philosophy of a Universal Religion should be simple and uncomplicated as can be selected by way of the truely conscientious practitioners. Simplicity is stated to be the “Charm” of Mai-ism.
4. For them that have a special aptitude , Mother and Child relationship between God and man is extremely efficient for all reliefs, and spiritual or religious progress.
5. Everyone has one’s own right in the matter of selecting one’s own path of for evolution or religious progress.
6. In all other matters , except universality, love, service, devotion and unconditional cheerful self-surrender, every one has one’s own full freedom
of choice of action, provided the action is harmless, moral, just, legitimate and religiously permissible.
The all -appealing attractivity of Mai-ism arises itself from its broad based spontaneous simplicity.The reconciliatory readjusting power of Mai-ism proceeds itself from its religious recognition of all beings’ divine right of demand and choice, in respect of freedom, peace and happiness.The subterranean spring of Mai-ism for the perennial supply of surviving stamina and security sprays itself from the sublime supreme MOTHER-CHILD RELATIONSHIP.
There should be no misunderstanding about Mai-ism being something separate from any of the existing established religions.Mai-ism is only a synthetic essence of all religions. Mai-ism is Hinduism or Christianity or say any religion, BUT NOT THAT ALONE. A Mother is the mother of each one of her children but yet not any child alone. Mai-ism is a larger circle which includes all smaller circles without tackling or touching or disturbing the integrity of any smaller circles. It is a parental religion of the most merciful parent. THE MOTHER which keeps reconciliation of all individual religions.

Mai-ism reveres all established religions, their founders, their specific deities, religious practices, modes of worship, scriptures etc. Mother is the same being as Father. Mother is mother of all Founders, Religions, Incarnations and Immortal Preachers and Teachers of all religions. Any Mai-adherent or Mai-ist in the sacred service of Mai is ten times the servant of Mai’s any illustrious son.
The condition of the world has so entirely changed that it is impossible for any individual religion to stand separated, single and quite aloof from all other religions. Mai-ism aspires to be the new Universal Religion that world under distress has been searching for.Mai-ism to say the least is a miniature and a basic model or a skeleton of the Universal Religion so much needed.

With a view to consolidating the whole world religiously, Mai-ism concedes that it is not indispensable requirement for Mai-ists, that they must have a belief in the existence of God., provided they truely love and serve all to the best of their possibility and practicability; That is because in the estimation of mai-ism selfishness and living a life of violating Divine Laws is a much worse variety of atheism than the open honest denial of God.
Mai-ism is as much attentive to the life of now and herewith all its miseries and happiness, as the life of hereafter and above. Maiji writes in Mother’s message , ” Be we first man, then brothers and thereafter alone, religious men. By religion Maiji means first, the surest foundation of love and service, unselfishness, self-sacrifice, self-control, self-denial, justice, wisdom, mercy, truth. morality, virtue, character, foregoingness, forgiveness, forgetfulness etc. The six “Gs” of Mai-ism are Gratefulness, Greatness, Goodness, Givingness, Godliness and Goingness. Four “Gs” must precede Godliness.

Maiji has 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 most important universal religions institute. As stated in the Preliminary Report pertaining to the Congress held on 23 October 1959, the complete attendance at Congress was around 3800 persons 2184 of which integrated 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 organizations . Further more , 43 countries had sent their official observers. Appreciation and truest understanding about Mai-ism  by the said World Congress should be evident from these words; “We have received valuable literature from all quarters of the world, which amply reveals that the regeneration of man is at hand, as well as that a new age (Aquarian) is being ushered in taking the shape of a brand new Spiritual Civilisation. We recommend such sources of research. We recommend Mai-ism and Mai-Institute of Santa Cruz (West), Bombay -54 [MUMBAI -400054], INDIA”.

All things said and done , all theories and philosophies studied and discussed, the finalmost aim and object of every human being is to have minimum of misery, maximum of peace and happiness, quickest progress of evolution and finally the Mukti or Salvation or Emancipation. As to this last and unexceptionable aim and object of every human beings, Mai-ism suggests, teaches and trains Mai-ists to be living the life of a  Mother’s child, with universal love and service and devotion with unconditional cheerful self-surrender to Mai’s Divine will. Mai-ism, as the last word lays down the devotional Ideal of a Mai-ist as under : “Practice feeling that you are a child- a child whom Mother could not but accept, however wicked. you automatically get confidence , you regain your innocence, purity and sincerity and you raise yourself above worldwormness, sexuality and selfishness. You are off your cares, time is eternity for you and life is lightened. Be MOTHER’S CHILD and Her lap shall be thrilling and throbbing to have you on itself”.

There have been text-books for Mother-worship open to all of any religion in Hindi, English, Malayalam, Tamil and Telgu. Mai does not mean Mother alone, but Mai-ism includes believers of one Mother of all or one Father of all, or one Mother-Father or one Father-Mother of all.The main emphasis is on oneness of God for the whole Universe. For Mai devotees that are the specially the devotees of Mai the relationship of God and devotee is that of Mother and child.
