Pleasure has reaction of pain

In every man’s life, there are moments when, as it were, he feels suffocated, perspired and grasping for air, in a closed room. He shouts for free air, light and breeze, but he neither unburdens his heaviest garments, nor opens the windows, nor runs to the veranda. He is bound up with so many ropes, and is so much afraid even to talk about them to others, as also of the public ridicule and censure – ropes of hope, fears, infatuations, desires, ambitions, vices and weaknesses. The greatest reason for the same embarrassment is that he is not prepared to forego anything and pay the price. He is not for a substitution, but addition. He has not realized that no “bhoga” (enjoyment) can be had without “tyaga” (relinquishment).He wants to be nearest East and nearest West as well. He is not prepared to suffer or sacrifice the least, for a new attainment. He wants to grasp new things, without loosening his grip over the already possessed things. He wastes his whole life, in experimenting, in relying too much on his intellect and on outside assistance, and his tact of manipulations. He is for snatching what he is legitimately denied, under the Laws of Nature, Truth and Justice.

The Founder often speaks about,” Having the maximum energy , maximum leisure, maximum space  and maximum lightness in the brain and in the heart. Have the maximum conversation, about every pleasure having its reaction of pain and exhaustion or tiresomeness “.

Your paying off your debts on one side, but incurring new debts of a different nature on the other, takes you nowhere. First plug up the hole, from which water is getting into your boat, and then start the work of removing the already collected waters. First divide your mind two ways .Regarding not incurring additional liabilities; you must be cent per cent active. No more sins, no more vices; no more degenerations.

Don’t think even of your good acts and merits. That attachment to the meritorious actions of yours , will again entangle you. 

The Founder’s patent example is this. Suppose there is philanthropic, good hearted valiant man of brave fighting class, but somehow having a steeling habit. If he sees any beautiful and rich treasure, say, in a king’s palace, he cannot remain without   a cleverly managed successful stealing night raid. He has started in the Sadhana of controlling his bad habit. A fire breaks out in the city; he saves the lives of so many. He has come to believe as suggested above. “Don’t be licking your lips for the merits. Forego them.” He runs away, having done most the life saving meritorious work, without letting anyone who he is. The king of a palace is so very pleased with the bravery of the unknown philanthropic man .He offers a tempting prize. Do you think he would go to the tresureful palace to take his prize? No; no; with great difficulty. He has improved his thieving habits. Even if someone said to the king, it was this man, would he admit that? No. A man who is determined on his Sadhana foregoes every benefit, to avoid a possible of a slip.   
The Founder says,” If you are avaricious of getting the fruit of your merit, take my word, you will again be entangled. After kingship as the reward of the merits , comes the hell. After heaven, again one returns to the same rotten human world.

GOD AS MOTHER : NAMES 661 TO 680

LALITHA SAHASRANAM ललिता सहस्रनाम MAI SAHASRANAM माई सहस्रनाम
661) Sadasadrupadhaarini सदसदरूपधारिणी – Mother is the foundation and assumes all forms of being and nonbeing.
Sat सत  means Mother and Asat असत means Universe.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 661

Sat सत and Asat असत  are also the two kinds of knowledge. Sat is knowledge or mental understanding about Mother after, the realization of the unity underlying the Soul, Universe and Mother. It is after this realization alone , that the Universe becomes Asat (non-existent). Asat knowledge  means the knowledge which is non existent, but which is contrary to the final truth, and which every soul has , before the above said realization.
Sat and Asat also mean existence and non-existence. Existence is what is permanent and unchangeable, Whatever appears as either as existent or non existent is caused to appear so, by the desire of Mother.

662) Ashtamurtih अष्टमूर्तिः – Eight-formed.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 662

Earth, water,fire, air,ether, mind, intellect and egoism are the eight forms, of elements, physical astral etc.
“Wealth, intelligence, earth, nourishment, protection, contentment, radiance and stability are the eight forms”, of reliefs and remedies, by which Mother protects Her devotees.
Mother as manifest in the self, makes the self to be of eight kinds, according to the difference of qualities, viz., (1) Elemental Self (Bhutaatman); (2) Embodied soul (Jivaatman) (3) Inner Self (Antaraatman) (4) Wisdom Self (Jnaanaatman) (5) Great Self (Mahaatman) ; (6) Untaintable  Self (Nirmalaatman); (7) Positively pure Self (Shuddhaatman); and  (8) Supreme Self (Paramaatman).
The most important meaning of eight forms for the Mother worshipper may be taken as under :-
She is Braahmi, Maaheshvari, Kaumaari, Vaishnavi, Vaaraahi, Indraani, Chaamundaa and Mahaalakshmi, and they respectively govern the following emotions of the whole universe and individual souls :
Desire, wrathfulness, greed, infatuation, pride , envy, sin and merit.
These are governing deities, or forces and forms, and according as they are pleased or indifferent or displeased, they favour, remain neutral or obstruct the soul, in their respective fields, through the agency of thoughts, desires and actions.

663)Ajaajaitri अजाजैत्री – She that enables the devotees to conquer the Avidyaa अविद्या (unborn) i.e. ignorance.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 663

664)  Loka-yatraa-vidhaayini लोकयात्राविधायिनी-Directing the course of the fourteen worlds.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 664
Managing the worldly relations and duties and maintenance  and smooth running of the worldly life of Her devotees in Her individual capacity.

665) Ekaakini एकाकिनी – One alone. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 665
Mother is one without second. Alone, She creates the worlds, alone She establishes them, alone She consumes the Universe. Hence She is called the One.
‘She is one’ and ‘She is many’, (please see the Preface). Though She is one , She is everywhere and cognised as many by limitations.Just as the crystal looks coloured, by the transmission of the different colours, just as one cloud become many retaining the same nature and colour, just as the rain from the sky assumes various tastes and colors according to the soil, just as the one fire takes different shapes, and just as wind is said to be differently odorous, so also Mother is said by the wise to be one and many.
Mother is One alone, to Her devotees as seen in their single mindedness during their sublime most period of devotion; and Mother is many while they move in the Universe and deals with hundreds of humanity and hundreds of experiences of desires , thoughts, emotions and actions etc.

666) Bhooma-roopaa भूमरूपा – Aggregate of all things.
She is one, She is many, without or with limitations, respectively. She is all, all yet not all.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 666

667) Nirdvaitaa निर्द्वैता – Without duality. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 667

668) Dvaitvarjitaa द्वैतवर्जिता – Transcending duality. ललिता सहस्रना स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 668

None of the opposite pairs are permanently true, not are they, during the period of their existence, able to exert any permanent influence. Nor can She is be permanently conceived as in two parts. She is goodness, Benevolence, Love and Mercy alone. She is all the best and best alone in spite of all seeming evil, because She alone is both opposite parts, both being of Her making and ever creatable and destructible by Her, at Her sweet will and pleasure.

669) Annadaa अन्नदा – Giver of food.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 669

670) Vasudaa वसुदा – Giver of wealth.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 670

671)Vriddhaa वृध्दा – Old. Devotees humorously cajole Her with “Thou art the oldest being, tottering along Thy stuff, but still not exhausted and not winding up Thy play.” ललिता साहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 671

672)  Brahmaatmaikya-svarupini ब्रह्मात्मैक्यस्वरूपिणी – She that is the union of Brahman and Atman, the Supreme soul and the individual soul or the part and the whole.She that establishes, maintains and enlightens the unity of the whole and the part. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 672

673) Bruhati – बृहती – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तो., नामक्रमांक 673

674 ) Braahmani ब्राह्मणी –  ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 674
To avoid the last lingering notion that Mother may be in any way connected or pleased with any of the  above practices, Mother is immediately described here as Brahmanic. She is Brahman-like, fully Sattvik. Braahmni means full of divine wisdom and crowned with the white flower of Sattvikness of chastity, purity, charity, pity, etc.

675) ) Braahmi ब्राह्मी – The female name of Brahmaa.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 675
As Brahma is sexless or both-sexed there should be no objection to give Motherly feminine name of Braahmi to Brahmaa.

676) Brahamaanandaa ब्रह्मानंदा – Bliss of Brahman, i.e. universality. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 676

Bliss that is experienced when no thought remains except that ” Mother alone exists and none or nothing else exist, independent of Her” is sometimes called Brahmaanada, but that is one popular meaning.The other is the bliss in the relationship with personal Mother taking the whole universe and all its beings to be Her manifestations. the first meaning refers to Impersonal Mother and second to  Personal  Mother. However as explained before , Mother is both Impersonal and Personal.
Impersonal Mother is realised when the ego has forgotten itself and lost itself,during ecstasy in a stage when there is neither I nor Thou. Where I and Thou remain but whole universe disappears, it is a dealing with the Mother as Personal Mother. When I disappears and only Thou remains it is Prapatti or complete unconditional self surrender. When I and Thou remain but the relation is ” I and Thou are one “, that is Love.When I and Thou alone remain but the relation is that of ” I am Thine”, that is Supreme devotion. When I and Thou remain but the actual relation is “Thou art mine”, it means the selfishness and universe have not completely disappeared, and Devotion is Elementary.

677)  Balipriyaa बलिप्रिया -Delighting in the mighty or beloved of the mighty.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 677
The meaning is to be reversed. Those that love Mother or those to whom She is beloved become mighty.
Mighty means able to conquer the six enemies and to overcome nescience.
“Bali” also means accessories of ceremonial worship. Animal sacrifices are defended under this name, stating that She is fond of animal sacrifices.

678)  Bhaashaa-rupaa भाषारूपा -In the form of the language which affords the ladder for the expression, communication and uplift of the aspirants to the highest plane through the Grace of Mother and Guru. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र ,नाम क्रमांक 678

679) Brihatsenaa बृहत्सेना  – With a mighty miraculously expanding army. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 679

This word and the previous word should be read together.The implied idea conveyed is that SENAA सेना or the powers She deputes to ameliorate or evolve Her devotees are expanding even though they be few in numbers, being of the mightiest prowess. In the usual methods of evolution, a thousand things are being  ordained for observance, but when Mother decided to crown Her devotee with success, She enables him to reach the goal by constant practice of only four mightiest things, viz., love, service , devotion and self-surrender, which four again are mere amplification of only one thing, viz., Love to Her.

On the battle-field the opponent who was being baffled by Mother taunted Her by saying,”Why dost Thou pride Thyself so much ? Thy victory is due to the mighty and multitudinous army of Thine and nothing of Thy own prowess.” Mother to convince him of the fact that Her senaa is not only Jayat जयत invincible, but also Brihat बृहत only as an expansion (of fewest individuals), ordered all the fighting powers enter into Herself.

680) Bhaavaa-bhaava-vivarjitaa भावाभावविवर्जिता  – Devoid of existence and non-existence. Taking destruction to mean change, destruction of existence is non-existence, and destruction of non-existence is existence. As Mother is above change and eternal, She is above existence and non-existence.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 680

God as Mother Names 621 to 640

LALITHA SAHASRANAM ललिता सहस्रनाम  MAI SAHASRANAM माई सहस्रनाम
621) Divyavigrahaa दिव्यविग्रहा  – Divine bodied, with shining person.ललिता सहस्र नाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 621
Those who get a glimpse of Mother, first see such a flood of light, that the eyes close down as on the sudden appearance of sunlight in dark and the devotee falls in a swoon for a few seconds.

622) Klimkaari क्लींकारी – Giver of the results of the repetition of the syllable “Klim”. Klim is Kaama beeja, by repetition of which, one gets attractive or conquer-ring power. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 622

623) Kevalaa केवला – The absolute.ललिता सह्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 623
She is single and devoid of all attributes, perfect, complete and not subject to any modifications.

624) Guhyaa गुह्या – The secret. Mother is Secret of Secrets. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 624
Mysterious are the ways of Mother.
Just mark the contrast, She is comprehensible and knowable as broad day light as meant by the name Prakataakrutih, and yet, Guhyaa, most incomprehensible. By now, the reader must be able to explain the contradiction. To them whom She chooses is knowable; to them from whom She wishes to conceal Herself She is Guhyaa; but the last word is that She is Guhyaa.

625) Kaivalya-pada-daayini कैवल्यपददायिनी –  Bestower of the One-Alone state. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 625

Kaivalya is the state of consciousness of singleness without attributes. Kaivalya is the establishment of the energy of  consciousness in its own nature, in which condition all sorts of modifications are extinct. Kaivalya is the stage beyond the four popularly known classes of salvation. Pada means salvation. The four classes of salvation are Saalokya सालोक्य, Saarupya सारूप्य, Saamipya सामीप्य , and Saayujya सायुज्य.
The Saalokya सालोक्य  means remaining with Mother in the same world and is the state to be attained by the worship of the mass type.

Saarupya सारूप्य  ( receiving the same form as Mother’s). This is the result of the worship, without any show of it without using images.Here, the deities are regarded as different from oneself, although the worshippers are of course endowed with dominion and nature of Mother., and the relationship is that of the nearest possible equality, between the Mother and  the worshipper. Some call this (state) Saarshti साष्र्टी i, e.g., equality of dominion.

Saamipya सामीप्य is the state of remaining in closest proximity of Mother. This is for them, that worship the deity as residing in their heart.

Saayujya सायुज्य  is the sate of becoming one with Mother, worshipping oneself as Mother with Mother’s attributes and becoming one with Mother.

The higher stage must come in natural course come, after attaining what is to be attained from the lower status.
The state or condition of consciousness, in cases of those that attain any of these four kinds of salvation, is the reward of most meritorious actions,character, etc. and the state attained is not perpetual but transitory, and subject to limitations and conditions. Hence these are described by the words Pada पद (above).

The state of Kaivalya  कैवल्य salvation on the other hand, is the reward of the realization of oneness and is unconditioned and perpetual and beyond the above said  four classes of salvation.

Those who perform mechanically meritorious ceremonious and virtuous philanthropic actions , etc., attain the state of salvation above described as Saalokya, Saarupya, Saamipya or Saayujya. Those who know Mother by realisation, and reject the aforesaid four states of salvation, knowing well that those stages attainable by actions and worships as stated before are imperfect, attain the last state of Kaivalya कैवल्य  in full, i.e., the bliss attainable by glory of Mother, and enjoy the unconditional bliss transcending both actions and worships.

“The devotee who worship Mother by ceremonies, by images ,by mind, by identification attain the four classes of salvation. After a long experience of these , combined in one, the devotee finally attains the state of salvation known as Kaivalya कैवल्य.

626) Tripuraa त्रिपुरा – Master of the different triples. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 626

Mother is called Tripuraa because She is the Mother of the three entities (Brahmaa, Vishnu and Rudra). There are many triples , e.g., the three Naadis -Sushumnaa,Pingalaa and Idaa; as also Manas, Buddhi and Chitta. Again there are three Devaas, three fires , three energies. Whatever in the world is three fold, is referred to here, as belonging to Her.
Tripuraa also suggests the three aspects of Her Lotus Feet, white, red and combined coloured.
Mai’s White Lotus Feet indicate the pure Samvit, i.e., universal consciousness, which is untainted by any Upaadhis, (obstructive environments), etc. The red feet are the Paraahantaa (Supreme egoism); also known as Mahat being the first emotion(vritti) from the Samvit (universal consciousness). The combined coloured feet indicate atoms of egoism, manifesting themselves, each by modification (the vritti) of ” I ” in individuals. This egoism is known as Ahankaar, which gets nourishment from knowledge, which is imperfect or unreal or perverse, along with all other paraphernalia of emotions, which again owe their existence to ” I “(egoism).
Kabir says : The world dies with ” I ” ‘s death.

627) Trijagadvandyaa त्रिजगवंद्या – Adored by the three worlds.ललित सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 627
628 ) Trimurtih त्रिमूर्तिः- Triple formed. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र ,नाम क्रमांक 628
Mother assumes three forms, white, red and black.The supreme energy endowed with Satvic quality, which enables Brahmaa to work is white; the same endowed with Rajasic quality and enabling Vishnu to work is red, the same endowed with Tamasic quality and enabling Rudra to work, is said to be black.

629) Tridasheshvari त्रिदशेश्वरी – Ruler of the three consciousness state of waking, dreaming and sleeping.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 629
630) Tryakshari त्र्यक्षरी- Three-syllabled. ललिता सहस्रनामस्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 630
the three syllables are the Beejaas of the three divisions (of the Panchadashi Mantra ) , namely, Vaagbhava, Kaamaraaja and Shakti.Vaagishvari is the Jnaana Shakti and confers salvation. Kaameshvari is the ruler of desires and is the Ichchhaa Shakti. Bhagamaalini is the Kriyaa Shakti, the supreme energy, which is the fulfiller of desires at one end, and the securer of the salvation at the other.

631) Divya-gandhaadhyaa  दिव्यगन्धाढ्या – Divine, perfume-bodied. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 631
Divyagandha is perfume without the perfume-bearing object.When a yogi advances in his practice or a devotee in his devotion he begins to get perfume without any perfuming odours or material objects. By concentration a super-relation is established between the organ of smell and the ether.

There are two of many external symptoms  by which sometimes devotees and Mother’s favorites are recognised by those whom Mother chooses. One thing is that there is divine perfume around them and another thing is that light around them.

In last Easter 1938 when the Founder went to Ahmadabad and was addressing a meeting of devotees for Mother worship, just then he was explaining the terms SUVAASINI सुवासिनी and  SUVAASINYARCHANAPREETAA सुवासिन्यर्चनप्रीता  such a strong breeze of most attractive perfume was experienced, that sisters began to inquire if any newly arrived ladies had joined them, having returned from a marriage party, in which case there would be the chance of their bringing with them strong scent odours. On inquiry it was found that such was not the source of the Divine Perfume.

632) Sindura-tilakaanchitaa सिंदूरतिलकान्चिता – Worshiped by elephant-gaited females.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 632
All that is charming in women proceeds from Mother.

633) Umaa उमा – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र , नाम क्रमांक 633
According to Hindu Mythology; Shiva’s wife Paarvati is called Umaa because when Umaa’s mother heard of Her determination to undertake most severe penance, refusing to take not only food, but even a fruit or a leaf, to get Shiva as Her husband, Her mother was shocked and shouted out, ” Oh! do not.”  U ” उ ” means Oh, and Maa ” मा ” means don’t.

Mother residing as fame and brightness in all creations and energy of desire and essence of all mantras, is Umaa the end and essence of Aum. Aum by a slight transposition, of letters , becomes U.M.AA. Umaa is the supreme experience , which destroys the noose of earthly experience , and the best purifier, producing bright mental states and manifestations in so many beneficial forms. Umaa is the Ichchhaa-Shakti इच्छाशक्ती, the energy of desire. Umaa is golden coloured and through meditation of Umaa, the devotee, a sit were, receives golden currents from Her, which transforms the iron within him and turns him most precious, most dear and most unchangeable, and makes him proof to all atmospheres and degenerating forces.

There is a great psychological importance in the fact  that She is desire. It is the desire which brings many things into being, maintains many things in position and finally brings salvation.

The psychological emotions, which are most important in the matter of hastening evolution are desire, fear, hatred, relationship, love and devotion. All of these automatically bring about meditation and unification.
Through the emotion of desire, Mother is attained as a result of various experiences , leading one to conclude that the only  thing worthy of being desired , is Mother. Through the emotion of fear, the devotee attains Mother by acting most obediently up to the requirements of scriptures, as a result of the conviction that every waywardness he indulges is seen by Mother and he shall have to answer for all such indulgences. Through the emotions of hatred, the demons gets salvation much quicker than the lukewarm devas, the so-called devotees. But best of all, through the emotion of relationship, Mother is attained by establishing the relationship of yourself with Mother as Her child, however wicked , (please read theory and principles). Love and devotion are great sublimating forces, for the attainment of Mother.

Woman is more inclined towards morality and religion and is nearer God than man

It is a general most common belief, that woman is more inclined towards morality and religion and is nearer God than man, because of her instinctive, emotional and inspiration-receptive nature and spiritualistic sensitivity and evidently as she is less contaminated with the outside life, which often necessitates fair and foul activities and involves succumbing to inevitable evil influences. There is surely a good deal of truth in this belief, and any nation is more truly religious and therefore much happier, where mothers are extremely religious in the true sense of the word.

About Lazarus’s revival

 

According to Lazarus’s Karma , he was destined to die on a certain day. The law was fulfilled and Lazarus died. That was fated to be. But not even death is a fate irrevocable. Jesus satisfied the Karmik law and brought Lazarus back to life again. How did he do it ? He did not just say ,”Come forth”. Jesus saw the soul of Lazarus had gone after it had left the physical form and he first contacted that soul encased in its astral body, in order to call it back again. But he did not call Lazarus back to the body that had already began to rot. Jesus had to make that body whole again. He had to revive and restore the body of Lazarus before the soul and life could enter in. Only after the form had been made livable could he invoke Lazarus to come forth in it. So Jesus did two things : first he put himself – his life and divine power in the body of Lazarus.Thus he could work out Lazarus’s Karma. He took that Karma on himself.Then having freed the body of the cause of death , he renewed the bodily cells , so that they would live again. This is how Jesus could wake up Lazarus from the dead , even though there was no way of reviving him according to natural law.

The twelve different Vidyaas looked at from the point of the science of Mantras, are different sacred words, formula and are different permutations of the several sacred letters of the Panchadashaakshari पंचदशाक्षरी  Mantra.
Thus for instance , Lopaamudraa’s Vidyaa or Haadi हादि विद्या  Vidyaa is

Ha ह, sa स , ka क, la ल, hrim र्‍हीं |,  Ha ह, sa स, ka क, ha ह, la ल, hrim र्‍हीं |,  Sa स, ka क, la ल, hrim र्‍हीं ||.

For Mai-ists, Manuvidyaa मनुविद्या  may be taken to mean the science of attaining Mother through knowledge and Chandravidyaa through heart or emotion or devotion. Nandividyaa through service, and Mahaavidyaa may be taken to mean putting into practice and realising the above Vidyaas.
According to Mother’s Lodge Ideals, “Love all” is Chandra Vidyaa चंद्रविद्या ,and “Serve all” is Nandi Vidyaa नंदीविद्या . “Meditating on Mother’ which means Devotion, is Manu Vidyaa मनुविद्या , and “Self-surrendering and living cheerfully in any circumstances, in which one is placed”, is Mahaa-Vidyaa महाविद्या .

585) Shrividyaa श्रीविद्या – Sacred science. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 585
There are four sacred sciences for salvation, viz., the sacrificial science, the existed science, the secret science and the spiritual science. Mother is the initiator of all these and Mother is the bestower of salvation. The said four sciences are sciences of Action, Devotion, Mantra and the science of knowledge about the relations of the soul, universe and Mother.

586) Kaama-sevitaa कामसेविता – Attended by Kaama ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 586
Kama काम means the bodiless one( god of love ). As stated in scriptures: He, though without fingers worshipped Mother, without tongue spoke to Mother and appealed to Mother. He saw Mother without eyes, he touches Mother’s form without fingers. This shows that no ceremonial for worship is indispensable.

587) Shree-shodasha-akshari-vidyaa श्रीषोडशाक्षरीविद्या – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र , नाम क्रमांक 587
The science of meditation of Mother, through the repetition of the Mantra of sixteen syllable is this.This Mantra is obtained by adding Aim to the fifteen-syllabled Mantra and therefore runs as under :-
Ka क, e ए, i ई, la ल , hrim र्‍हीं, |  ha ह , sa स, ka क , ha ह , la ल , hrim र्‍हीं , | sa स , ka क , la ल , hrim र्‍हीं, Aim एें ||

588) Trikutaa त्रिकूटा –Three-peaked or three grouped. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 588
The three peaks of a mountain may be taken to be Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh and She is the one mountain of which, those are the peaks. Kuta कूट also refers to the group of the fifteen syllabled Mantra. She that is worshipped by three groups.

589) Kaama-kotikaa कामकोटीका – As beautiful as millions of Kaama. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 589
There is a theory that every woman has a womb in her forehead also, where the most righteous woman gathers up righteousness and religiosity which she can impart to children, and when that desire arises in such a woman, i.e., to beget a righteous and religious child, She brings into being a righteous soul or a Savior, which millions of the usual Kama driven actions can not.
590) Kataaksha-kinkari-bhoota-kamalaa-koti-nishevitaa कटाक्षकिंकरीभूतकमलाकोटीसेविता  Attended by millions of Lakshmis लक्ष्मी , as maid-servants subdued by Her glances.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 590

Mai-istic instructions for the relief of Misery ( Part 1 )

 

I wish to disclose some sacred Mai-istic instructions for the relief of Misery, which has been imparted to me by our beloved Founder Maiji, Maai Swarupa Maai-Markandji.

Miseries of illness occur by way of painful reactions of certain causes in the physical body and the working capacities of mind etc. The most apparent physical trouble, illness or disorder is due to the disregard or ignorance of the general rules or precautions which govern the working of the body and the mind. With the advance of medical science aids and cures are fortunately now available. However these facilities resulting from scientific discoveries are counter-balanced by the high cost of medicine and other difficulties. As a result, in spite of claims on the advancement of civilization and other scientific progress, the total number of suffering persons have increased considerably. This is evidenced by the impartial, unflattering opinions expressed fearlessly everywhere.

On innumerable occasions the divine aid has been experienced as marvellously useful in relieving miseries at so many quarters all around the world. It is unfortunate that our Indian brothers are too idle to pursue any enquiries in this direction in a true scientific manner and ascertain facts on the basis of first-hand information and direct evidence. It is still more unfortunate that there are very few interested in spreading the truth of their experiences in divine aid and knowledge in a humanitarian missionary spirit.

The result is the two extreme beliefs on the subject, both conclusions being arrived at without any serious thought, enquiries or personal experiences. One is that of out and out non-believers who refuse to accept things even when results are shown in front of their own eyes. They are fanatics in favour of atheism with the violent determination of sweeping out any talk or thought which are likely to lead one to the higher considerations concerning invisible forces, Divine aid, Saintly Incarnations etc. The other suffers from such an overpowering blind faith in the healing powers of divine aid that they fall pitiable victims to religious cheats who practice certain flimsy self-invented process of healing, for the purpose of self-aggrandisement and monetary benefits.

The Hindu Science of medicine has surely progressed to a high degree, but is lacking in certain qualifications to which the modern world has become habituated. The modern mind prefers quick relief even though temporary. It does not agree to any diet control and is not prepared for any preliminary troubles in the preparations of the medicines to be taken in.

The popularity of Indian medicines ended in the new age with the acceptance of the principles of equality among men as it was the general custom of the physicians to prepare and distribute the rich medicines to the rich from the funds supplied by them and the remnants to the poor. Another cause for the unpopularity was the greediness of the few learned physicians in the field who attempted to squeeze out as much as they could from their patients. Even though the modern doctors were no better, the public preferred the new departure mainly out of a desire to be relieved of an old evil and from the optimistic dreams on the new remedy. Today we find cries of new diseases and swarms of youthful patients everywhere and signboards of doctors at every nook and corner.

It has now become the inevitable duty of all thinking men to pursue the problem of the physical malady evil. As you know, West is always most enterprising and ready for any sacrifice to search out the truth in any subject either of material happiness, industry, science or spiritual knowledge. We are not in close touch with the day-to-day improvements made by the latest theories under discovery regarding diseases under enquiry in the west. The matter however of treating diseases in the allopathy has become too old there and a subject of the past, not to speak of different new varieties of medicines, operations etc. There have been a newer illumination in the west regarding diseases namely that one’s character, emotions, mental peace, devotion, strong will, self-control, disciplined life etc., have been exerting the most wonderful and unimaginable influence on the body which creates or prevents diseases and either augments or cures the diseases. Here we are getting a good deal of satisfaction and finding that the latest science, based purely on experiments and observations has been fast approaching our ancient beliefs which we did cherish and continued till our civilization got adulterated with western notions of life, its purpose and goal.

Nothing can be more authoritative than the final conclusion of Dr. Alexis Carrel who was twice awarded the nobel prize in 1912 and 1944. We quote here the exact words. “Prayer is a force as real as terrestrial gravity. As a physician, I have seen men, after all other therapy has failed, lifted out of diseases and melancholy by serene effort of prayer. Only in prayer do we achieve that complete and harmonious assemble of body, mind and spirit which gives the frail human its unshakable strength.” The November 1951 issue of Readers digest from America, the magazine read over the whole world, mentions the case of “The man who licked cancer.” He was a man who always talked in the tone of unconcealed devotion with resolute eyes. No one would suspect that he was a man who at 32 had fought of four attacks of cancer. The man who was told five years before, that he had but two weeks to live. The doctors on final conclusion suggested to him that his kidney tumor was cancerous and that he had only two weeks to live and finally to consider if he wanted to draw up his will. The man was entirely exasperated and stated. “The question of living or dying was to be decided by God Almighty and neither the disease nor the doctor.” He prayed and prayed with ardent devotion and was so much entirely freed from the smallest disability of the evil that he was reemployed and continued in his service of the hardest work and greatest responsibility. The final remedy and the most efficacious one is thus the living of one’s life, with the least mental disturbance on account of various vices, sinfulness, criminality etc. in a word, live the life of love and service to all and regulate and conduct every detail of one’s life in the fullest spirit possible of devotional and unconditional cheerful self-surrender to one’s own God Almighty or deity, does not matter whatever conception and whatever religion one has. It is a well-known fact that the said requirements namely love and service to all and devotion with self-surrender to God of whatever conception, are the sinews links tenets and commandments of the new religious movements of Mai-ism. Mai-ism is the newest rationalistic Universal Religion recommending the  said tenets. It has so much conviction about the beneficial and welfare procuring results on living the life with the observation of the said tenets that Mai-ism so very boldly, unlike any other religion of the past, dispenses with the need of even the most primary belief in the existence of God. Mai-ism states, you simply live the life of love and service to all that you come in contact with and Mother Maai Herself will take every possible care of you in the matter of your bodily happiness, moral development, religious initiation and illumination etc. This is so because even the present modern science thus corroborates the truth about the highest efficacy of living a life of universal love and service which under Mai-ism has the same efficacy as prayer to Mother in as much as there is nothing more evident than the fact that any mother is extremely pleased on rendering any help of relief to any one of her children.

Returning to the same most efficient authority in medical science Dr. Carrel states as under. “Prayer should be understood not as mere mechanical recitation but as mystical elevation and absorption of consciousness in the contemplation of a principle both permeating and transcending our word, such a psychological state is not intellectual. It is incomprehensible to philosophers and scientists and inaccessible to them. But the simple and innocent and virtuous feel God as easily as the heat of the sun or the kindness of a friend or the mercifulness of a mother. The prayer has to be in the first place entirely disinterested. The man has to offer himself to God. He has to stand before Him like a canvas before the painter or marble before the sculptor. At the same time he asks for His Grace, exposes his needs and those of his brothers in suffering. Generally one has to pray not for oneself, but for another.” In all countries and especially in India, people have belief in the existence of such beneficial results of curing diseases, healing of sick persons etc., but the greatest pity is, there is no understanding of a scientific nature behind the experience of such cures and such instances have been invariable connected with places of pilgrimage or some peculiar modes of attractive superficial religious living or with personalities like saints etc. It is the proudest privilege of Mai-ism to shatter off all imaginary notions connecting malady cures with any such outside appearances. Mai-ism so strongly emphasises on the absolute truth that it is the prayer and prayer alone offered by disinterested persons who live their lives for the welfare of the world that moves Almighty Mother to shower Her Grace to relieve every sort of misery and that all other paraphernalia are simply secondary and just to increase a little faith of the persons under grief or physical misery. Mai-ism sums up the strong disapproval about predomination of the subsidiaries and entire neglect of the principal working factor under its very strong expression of there being no ‘chchoo-mantra’ छु मंत्र under Mai-ism. It was this unhappy tendency of combining the true remedy with the exploiting and misleading elements of the said nature that during the 19th century not only the belief in prayers completely disappeared but even the expression of God, religion and prayer began to create natural hatred in the hearts of people born and bred under the quick and evident experiences of the teachings of science. Mai-ism believes, the custodians of Religion are none the less responsible than the people themselves for the new satanic evil of a disbelief and even hatred in matter of God, Religion and Prayers. The tendency of the new age is to develop their beliefs on the basis of actually observed and experienced facts of truth. As stated in Mai-ism the modern man asks for proofs for even sun rise and sun set and therefore for the assurance of the modern world it becomes quite useful to state that in the matter of proofs regarding the influence of mind over the matter and body, there has been amplest evidence in the new science under telepathy, clairvoyance, spiritual healing etc. The Western science has now begun to explore the entire field of reality and has attempted to learn the characteristics of spiritual modes of healing sickness etc.

Today any physician can observe the patients brought to Lourdes and examine the records kept in the medical Bureau. Lourdes is the centre of an international medical association and there is a growing literature about miraculous healing through prayer and devotion. Atheistic physicians too are becoming more interested in these extra-ordinary facts and professors of Medical Schools and Universities have taken up the work of an earnest enquiry to churn out the underlying spiritual truths. The Committee of Medicines and Religion of the New York Academy and Medicine has undertaken the study of this important subject.

So much then regarding the scientific principle on which Mai-ism hopes to carry relief to all under distress of any suffering. If a prayer is scientifically true for the removal of a physical suffering, it is much more calculated to be efficacious in the matter of mental suffering or the distress of heart.
