Standing in the Right and Left Paths.
Savya in another sense means path of deities (Devas) or path of light and Apasavya means the path of dead ancestors (Pitris) attend by meritorious men attached to family life, wife, children etc.The Maai-ist child while playing on the shore under the protection of Mother is happy with its Mother , leaving deep-drivers to pursue their own ambitions and exertions.
One of the religious differences between Right and Left Path is that the Left-hand Path goer merely always meditates upon Mother even when he invokes and offers prayers to other deities.
Your head does not bend to anyone else.Your heart does not liquefy for any one else as for Maai, but your Maai can be worshipped in any form, any place, in any condition, at any time. In the truest and uncontaminated purest form the Left Hand Path is of a much greater and more severe discipline ideally and psychologically. In the Left Path as the worshiper does not worship any other deities, naturally he incurs their displeasure. If you have some work to be got done from a king and you go on praising the the king alone and give not even the smallest tribute to others, they internally become obstructive. In Maai Maarga, as well, the obstructions, pains and ups and downs are much greater because of this reason, but the evolution is wonderfully quick.
It is this reason that the ups and downs in the life of Maai follower are very great. Once a king and once a beggar, once revered and once spurned, once in he midst of hundreds and once in a single solitude with not a sparrow nearby.
The idea is this :- Mother is extremely quick evolutioniser. The Founder always explains this by a simple reference to the washing of a shirt in two hours. Usually a shirt takes a week, but if the Mother is washer-woman takes pity, you will find the poor shirt being tossed from place to place and subjected to water, sun and fire in a cruelly hasty manner.
The Founder says , " Enroll yourself as Mother's." She will do the rest. " Surrender yourself to Her Divine Will." "Do not worry what happens about you."
Founder's most common say is this, " When you go to the Mother-host, keep your bag and baggage with Her at Hers. She will cook for you, wait for you and keep the dish for you, even though you do not return home up to midnight. Keep your bag to yourself She will not even ask you if you are hungry, She presumes you have taken care of yourself." This is the practical meaning of self-surrender. You have not even to think anything except about Her and what relates to Her. "Absolutely no vacancy, for anything else."
The chief characteristics of the Left Path ( on the good side of it ) from the Maai-ists' visual angle which are worthy of assimilation by the Maai-ists are -
No lukewarmness. Single-mindedness.(Mother and Mother alone), strong determination, stronger sacrifice and strongest readiness to suffer. Die and don't care. Renounce fully and bear no fears. No expectations from other deities, self-control and no slavishness to or fear of popular opinion. No sheepish obedience to scriptures and no shrinking from duties and sufferings. No loophole-seeking, no self-deception.
It is claimed by the Left Path preachers that are the follower of the Left Path attains Moksha मोक्ष after enjoyment for a long time in this world.He has wealth. He shines with a beautiful body like that of Cupid कामदेव and subdues the richest and mightiest and fairest people who surround him. He infatuates all beautiful women who get stirred up with desire of his company. He controls lions and tigers , bhutaas भुत and pishaachas पिशाच्च (evil spirits and goblins). He wanders at his own will, unobstructed like the wind.
It is stated in Hindu Scriptures that Mahaa-maayaa महामाया , Paarvati पार्वती and Shaaradaa शारदा should be worshipped by the right path followers alone. If one worships them by he Left Path he becomes sinful, first form falls from virtuous stages already attained, and becomes as pitiable as dead.
The forms suitable for the Left Path वाम मार्ग , are stated to be Baalaa Tripura Sundari बाला त्रिपुर सुंदरी and Bhairavi भैरवी .
The worshippable from most suitable to both the Paths is stated to be that of Baalaa बाला . Baalaa बाला is the short name of Baalaa-Tripura-Sundari बाला त्रिपुरसुंदरी and is represented by Bahuchari बहुचरी in Gujarat. The Mantra to please Her is : Aim Klim Sauh एें क्लीं सौ ।. She is the Mother in the form of a girl before teens and is comparatively easy to propitiate. On being pleased She gives infatuating Darshan दर्शन to the devotee in dreams and confirms his faith and weakens his love towards worldly possessions and pleasures.
Darshan दर्शन is the vision of a temporary materialized form assumed by the worshipped to satiate the sight-hunger of the devotees.
How pleasant is to see the most beautiful, lovely, innocent, royal, majestic, all-powerful and yet most delicate Mother in Her tiny limbs and features !! Playing with Her maiden friends with a flower ball in a garden or a lovely forest where spring has made everything enchanting and made you forget the worst miseries of yesterday and tomorrow.
Once one sees that dream he does not feel composed till he comes to the point of weeping to have a second dream.Still one more and still one more. The world with all its pleasures stands as nothing comparatively.
Mother's Path is immensely practical. It is the path of evolution by actual practises , practical observations, past experiences, etc. One of the programmes especially in the Left Path is the actual worship of a girl ten to twelve years of age and practicing devotion by sitting like a servant before her as if she is Baalaa बाला . ~ MAI-ISM ~ ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 912
