The Government of India has become very concerned about how foreign money entering India is used and who is controlling those funds. The Government’s concerns extend to organizations, institutions, public charitable trusts, etc., that receive foreign funds as donations and where foreigners are in a controlling position as officeholders, executives, or trustees. In order to comply with the Government regulations, the Board of Trustees and in particular our foreign Trustees have made the following decision:
In the best interests of Beloved Baba’s Trust, the Avatar Meher Baba Perpetual Public Charitable and Avatar Meher Baba Trust (Firstly), both derived from the original Trust Deed that Beloved Baba signed in 1959, our dear Trustees Heather Nadel, Craig Ruff, and Merwan Dubash have resigned. Heather and Craig have lived here for over 40 years and have been blessed to have lived and worked with the Mandali. Merwan Dubash was blessed to be in Baba’s Company on several occasions. These indeed are unique souls and we’ll miss having them play the roles of Trustees. However, they will happily continue to serve Beloved Baba.
In due course, the Board will select new trustees to fill these vacancies.
Avatar Meher Baba ki Jai.
