Mother is the creator, nourisher & re-arranger of universes. Mother is the holder of the universe with Her wonderful powers of desire, knowledge and action. Mother is the soul of all sublimity, beauty, compassion and mercy. Mother is the master of Nature, Divine Law. Providence, Fate, Time, Primal Desire, Force, Evolution and what atheists call Chance. Mother is Guru (Master) and Mother is Kundalini or serpentine power. Mother is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent. Mother is sportivity, beneficence and bliss. Mother is beyond being personal or impersonal, beyond being with or without qualities and powerful to do or undo and undo or do in the most wonderfully never-imagined manner.
The Hindu ideal of Mother has awfully regenerated as times have rolled. Mai-ism aspires to re-install and rejuvenate Hindu Mother in Her True, Universal, Merciful and Motherly aspect.
The religious ideal which can suit the modern world is one that can take the whole humanity in its embrace, which can respect and give a free play to Conscience, Reason, Experience and Science, which would allow every man to live well and teach letting others live well, which will ensure a perfect freedom for every soul to work out its own salvation in its own way, which will teach maintaining sense of proportion and proper evaluation of essentials and non-essentials of a religion, which would develop the faculty of judging all actions and actors, not by their positional values, but by the tests of the fundamental they satisfy, which would guide without intimidation and mental enslavement, which would make one free from the poison of the over-consciousness of superiority and inferiority of man to man, and lastly, which would develop the spirit of practical sisterhood and brotherhood in the daily routine of life.
Mai-ism was represented at the All Faiths' Conference, Nasik, in 1933 and at the ninth Indian Philosophical Congress in 1934, ( ' God as Mother ' speech, and ' Modern world and Motherhood of God 'Thesis, respectively ).
Mai-ism has been explained in full details in two volumes of ' Mother and Mother's Thousand Names ', and ' Mai-ism ' , ( each covering more than seven hundred pages )
