The Founder has prayed Mother in Christian Churches and in Mosques. He has worshiped Mother in homes and joined Mohamedan and Zoroastrian prayers. It is not difficult to test the conscientious belief of the true followers and hypocrite prattlers. One of the surprise tests would be to see from a distance, if their hands fold and rise in reverence as automatically before other worshiping places as an Agiari, a Mosque, a Church or a Synagogue as when they approach their own religious places.
The Founder has so often prayed to Mother in English and has sat before Mother repeating some of the chapters of the Imitation of Christ, as serenely as when he is reading Sapta-Shati or Bhagwad Geeta. Not as a point of formality, or modesty or a point of unavoidable necessity or of policy, not as an outcome of timidity, or pride for one's worshiped , but from an unshakable belief in the universality of Mai and in the unity of all religions as belonging to his Mai.
