Now Controversy at Vashi Health Center, 22nd Comunication from Centeral Comittee

Hi Blog

Sorry for a long delay, However I am back.

With all the infighting(s) and energizing of  energy for non productive work being all time high. I laugh at the world (including myself).

Now, there has been some controversy in VHC a few places which by mataji blessing had not  faced any issues since long. Not knowing much details i reproduce a few emails that i received over last few days on this topic.

Please use your own wisdom, vibratory awareness to absorb the message :-)
Lets pary all this crap to finish off and we all are united and work in synergies to spread sahajyoga soon

Initial letter received, (PS this is OCR text extraction of a JPG Image hence might have errors) :
Dear all Sahaia Yogi BrotherS & Sisters!
Jai Shri Mataji,

Subject:  Regarding harassment to all staff members including CMO & Research Director of International Sahajayoga Research & Health center,CBD Belapur.

we have received communication from our respected trustees of LET Mumbai (Namly Mrs Kalpana Shrivastav,Mr Sudarshan Sharma,Mr. rajiv Kumar. & Mr.Pravin jawalkar) and this message has been widely circulated through sending messages to all Mumbai collectivity, We all like to Inform all Sahajayogis of the world that the situation we are facing in Health Center (Vashi hospital) since last 1 year.

We, the employees of Vashi Health Center have the following to say on these issues :

1)Vashi Hospital is a holy place for all sahajayogies.lts a vision of Shri matali for curing yogis/ research uplitment of sahajayoga, but since i year all doctors and staff including our C.M.O/C.E.O & Research director i.e(Dr Madhur Rai & Dr Sandeep Rai respectively) are being harassed mentally due to which we are not able to give our best services to Shri Mataji

2)AS you all know there was a fire incident which took place on 25th iuly,2013 at Vashi Hospital in this incident few employees of Vashi Health Center were stuck up during the fire rescue and they are the only sahajyogies (employee) who rescued all of us .AlsO in this incident our few employees got injured and out of which three staff members got suffocated in smoke cause due to fire. This has also affected the health of sahajyogis admitted in health center but none of our dear respected trustees were bothered for enquiring this incident even after being informed by our C.M.O/C.E.O & Research director i.e(Dr Madhur Rai & Dr Sandeep Rai respectively, After this incident they got time on 29th September 2013 to come to health center for trust meeting. This Is the concern they had towards Vashi health center staff.

3)All the trustees are always interested and happy to organize meeting in health center in Shri Mataji Appt. for dealing of others matters rather than Vashi Hospital issues and also they take funds from Vashi HospItal for Ganpatipule and For Other Projects and not bother bothers about Health Center Construction and Structural Work. Instead of that they have calculated CTS (Cost To Company) how much money is wasted on food and other resources which are provided to the staff which are their basic needs.

4)Dr.Sandeep Rai is working as Research Director in Vashi Health Center. He is whole and sole person who looks after the research work which Is again a Shri Mataji vision. He is one of the 3 persons who is doing research work for shajavoga for which he never took a penny and he is working in Vashi Health Center on honorary basis. This research work helps all the yogis to present sahajayoga scientifically all over seminar. But now he has been terminated for the post of research director. The reason for his termination was he was supported for welfare of all employees of Vashi Health Center. We do not at all agree the allegations’ made by trustees against Dr.SandeeP Rai which is not true at all.

5)All employees of Vashi Health Center have approached C.M.O/C.E.O & Research director i.e.(Dr Madhur Rai & Dr Sandeep Rai respectively) to represent our case and to speak on our behalf in all our matters right from our yearly increment in the year 2013 which was given to us after Dr,Madhur Rai & Dr.Sandeep Rai and we ourselves have lot of argument with Board Of Trustees which had to be greatly persuaded to give us decent Increment.

6)Regarding provident fund to employees: There has been lack of transparency in taking our signatures. The Accounts Dept. Was instructed the date of applicability of Provident fund was not communicated either to Dr,Madhur Rai & to the Accounts Dept or to us before the signature were taken. In the meeting they gave a paper stating that the board of trustees has decided that Provident fund is acceptable on voluntary basis to all employees from October 2013. Its only Shri Matai divine working that this sheet was not in their hands.
Dr.Sandeep Rai is the person who has been trying his best on both the sides, but the LET,Mumba’ trustees now find Dr.Sandeep Rai’s presence objectionable in the meeting of Board Of Trustees

7)The trustees feel that the exemplary behaviour of being a sahalyogi is to work on honorary basis. Yes, this is possible either you are retired and already having pension or you have an alternative source of income. For most of we are the sole bread- earners for our families and being employee in Vashi Health Center. This is our only source of income and we ask for our wages to run our families which we feel does not go against being as sahayogi.

8)AS Mr.Parag Raje were formal trustee of LET for many years who was also appointed by Shri Mataji herself,He was very loyal & sincere person and they have terminated him from the trustee post for the same reasons as Dr.Sandeep Rai were terminated I.e. the welfare of Vashi Health center staff.

9)Our respected trustees have appointed manager, admintStrator, who are retired in their services end these trustees think that they are trust worthy and true sahajyogis and we are not trustworthy according to them. We all employees have raised an obiection for appointing a manager or administrator to manage vashi hospital .Dr.Sandeep Ral has conveyed a message on behalf of all employees that from last one year we have been harassed and PF has not been given which is our right.

10)As we all know this was first trust formed by Shri Matai in 1972. So these trustees are not at all worthy to look after the LET trust which is mother divine work. Now we all are humbly request you please put your attention on this Issues of Vashi Health Center

We need to send you all this mail as now.atter the way Dr, Sandeep Rai has been targeted, by terminating Dr.Sandeep rai, the trustees are terminating all our faith and the trustees are pointing on our sincerity ,we all are not sure now who will be targeted next. We all are denying this decision of the trustees for terminating Dr. sandip rai Please excuse us for sending you this mail, but we have written this to you all as you all are our sahaji brothers and sisters.

With sincere regards
Vashi Hospital Staff
Jal shri mataji
And Post this goot some facebook conversation on email :
LET opens its mouth :

The decision of the Life Eternal Trust Mumbai (LET) asking Dr Sandip Rai to step down from the position of Director Research at Vashi Health Centre (VHC), has led to a spate of email exchange, which has been caused by the dramatic meeting called by Dr. Madhur and Sandip Rai on the night of October 24, 2013 and after which the staff of VHC has told the LET that they will stop all work, irrespective of its impact on the patients or on the cohesion in the global collective.

So it is only fair that all of us look at LET's reasons for taking the step that it did and also understand the context which has led to the current situation.

1. Most importantly and foremost, LET wants to unequivocally state and give its complete commitment to sustaining the wonderful and internationally recognized work of the (VHC). We have not ever in the past and will never compromise on that.

2. LET's commitment to VHC is demonstrated in its agreeing to all the demands of salary increases, over the last years without any resistance; the fact that doctors and staff are among the best paid in their category in Mumbai; its agreement to implement the Provident Fund scheme, when it is not legally required, announcing the Deewali bonus this year as done in the past. Completely contrary to the falsity being spread, LET has never, repeat never, held back any financial demands by VHC staff or its CMO, Dr Madhur Rai.

3. LET has always and continues to recognize the selfless and dedicated work done by Dr Madhur Rai as CMO to which position she was appointed by Shri Mataji. Our support to her is reflected in the fact that even in its latest communication, LET has requested Dr Madhur Rai to continue in her position. We invited both her and Dr Sandip Rai to the last Trust meeting which was held in VHC. They attended for the entire duration. We have always consulted with them on all issues pertaining to the VHC.

4. Even the recent appointments of Dr Smita Bugde, Mr Bugde and Deepti were made only and only in response to Dr Madhur Rai's specific requests for more staff. And then Dr Madhur Rai agreed to two of these appointments in an email on the very next day. LET firmly believed that we were working together to strengthen VHC and we want to only work together to build on the great work started by our Mother. We are therefore a bit taken aback by the news that Dr Madhur Rai has contacted Dr Bugde, a sahaja yogini of long standing and a fully qualified doctor, discouraging her to join- despite the fact that Dr. Bugde, her husband and Deepti have all offered to work on a voluntary basis. Is this behaviour of Dr Madhur in discouraging Dr Bugde from joining VHC compatible with to strengthening the VHC ?

5. While we of course recognize and have always recognized the splendid work done by the doctors and staff of VHC, we also want to reiterate that it is Mother's compassion and only Her love and blessings that works in VHC to the benefit of all those who go there. Doctors are instruments of Mother's powers and love- they cannot appropriate the powers that belong to Mother and Mother alone just as music instruments cannot replace the musician.

6. The recent problem has arisen because despite Dr Madhur Rai's agreement on the new appointments, as she had asked for them, Dr Sandip Rai sent the trustees an arbitrary and most discourteous communication simply saying that these appointments were not acceptable to the Working Committee while they were acceptable to the CMO. There has never been a working committee in the VHC and it is patently illegal and most anti-collective. This political step is Dr Sandip Rai's initiative to oppose rather than work collegially with the LET.

7. This arbitrary and conflict dominated approach of Dr Sandip Rai is not new. It has been persistently followed for at least a year. It started with Dr Madhur Rai stepping down as a trustee of the LET on February 17, 2013. She voluntarily chose to do so because Indian rules do not permit a trustee to take a salary from the trust. When this was pointed out to her, she chose to be the full time salaried CMO, instead of being a trustee working on voluntary basis. LET was OK with this decision because we knew she would continue to be available to the Trust for advice. Let us point out that current trustees work on an honorary basis and do not accept any form of financial help, (not even their transport charges and out of pocket expenses for their work in the Trust. On the contrary, the trustees have donated their own money when the Trust required them.

8. But Dr Sandip Rai did not take Dr. Madhur Rai's stepping down from the trust (and she was replaced by Rajiv Kumar) in the right spirit and ever since that day has made it a case of VHC versus LET. Since then he has constantly opposed every possible initiative of the LET for greater transparency and some regularisation of processes and procedures at the VHC. And he as defamed the trustees to all those who have come to VHC. Is this Sahaja behaviour?

9. Demands, which were never made earlier, started to be made. At a public meeting at VHC on May 11, 2013, when some trustees, including Kalpana Didi were present, open hostility and abusive behaviour was adopted and every issue was converted into a confrontation. Dr Sandip Rai's latest action of arbitrarily rejecting LET's decisions, taken in response to Dr Madhur Rai's requests, is ample proof of his attempt to break away from LET and appropriate the VHC as his own fiefdom.

10. Although Dr Madhur Rai has made this as a VHC versus LET issue, we firmly believe that this is not the case. It is simply that LET cannot have a senior person leading an unethical and completely un-sahaja activity of only demanding more and more financial payments and openly defaming the trustees of the LET. We want to bring to the notice of Dr Sandip Rai and others who are openly defaming the trustees in public that the trustees could be forced to take legal recourse to protect their character and social standing which is being flagrantly violated by Dr Rais and all those who are not checking the facts and making wild allegations.

11. Another issue that has been raised is the use of revenues generated by the VHC. As we have said above, LET has given the most generous and above normal financial packages for the doctors and staff in the Indian and Mumbai context. There has never been any financial stringency. The only change that is sought to be made is for greater transparency and accountability. Is that non-Sahaja?

12. LET has also asked VHC to transfer some revenues to other projects which the LET is implementing like the development of Ganapatipule and Vaitarna Music Academy. Dr Sandip Rai has falsely propagated that LET simply takes way the revenues, while hiding the fact that this has been done only for Sahaja work.

13. Dr Sandip Rai has been single-handedly working to un-do the great work Mother had started and that his father contributed to so marvellously . This is best brought out in the case of giving Provident Fund (PF) to all the employees of VHC. LET, after ascertaining all facts and complexities, decided to pay the PF with effect from 1 October 2013. Let it be clarified that even during Mother's Sakshat presence, this was not paid and legal opinion is at best divided on it. But Sandip Rai has led the agitation to pay the PF for the last ten years to all employees!! It may be asked why ten years and not from the very inception of the Centre in that case? Despite our repeated requests he has failed to understand that paying PF retrospectively will: (i) place an inordinate financial burden on the VHC which really cannot even be estimated as even those who have since left will now demand their past PF dues; (ii) it will open the VHC and LET to all manner of litigation that could embroil us forever in labour courts given the justice system in India; (iii) it has the possibility of unnecessarily sullying Mother's name as questions would then be raised on why it was not paid during that time. Dr Sandip Rai's unwise behaviour and intentions, which he cleverly hides, are perhaps surprising to some but true beyond doubt. We in LET are duty bound to not let him convert the VHC in to a trade union and let them wreck it. He or the staff have no proprietary rights over the VHC.

14. Dr Sandip Rai seems to have decided that they will leave nothing for the development of other projects started by Mother to which some of the surplus has been used. He has unfortunately convinced the staff that all revenues generated in the VHC belong to them and them alone. This has encouraged them to behave in a most anti-collective manner and be persistently focused on money alone. Will this help clear the Nabhis of those who come there? 

15. Mother in Her infinite wisdom established the LET Mumbai and LET Delhi. LET Mumbai was the first Trust established by her on March 8, 1972 to promote and propagate Her work. She Herself registered it with the Charity Commissioner, Mumbai. She Herself wrote the objects of the Trust which reveal Her grand vision, which is a must read for every Sahaja yogi. She Herself put the VHC under the LET Mumbai and did not set up VHC as an autonomous body. So any argument or attempt to now make it autonomous will be working directly and improperly against Her Will. LET will not allow this to happen as long as we can help it. Also to note, Indian Laws make the trustees accountable and liable for all legal duties and compliances to all regulatory bodies. Mother also wrote that all laws of the land should be followed.

16. To repeat- LET is committed to maintaining the highest standards in the Vashi Health Centre; there is no question of LET not recognizing the splendid work done by Dr Madhur Rai and her team of dedicated workers; and there is no question of a conflict between LET and VHC when we are all here to serve Mother's cause. We will of course not permit anyone to wreck Mother's legacy and will demand a minimum level of accountability and good governance. We consider this as our duty as trustees of a Trust established by Her.

Followed by this where were many more mails with each one mudslapping each other, opinions of few sahajis, personal attackes and what not. Since these are not the parties involved and I personally feel a few of them are allegations with proof(s) and i do not want to add myself to contrivesory the final contribution has come as 22nd communication from central committe. IF came as PDF and text of the same reads as :

Ps. Since the text was not easily copy + Pastable hence i have gone through same image/ocr route and hence some errors in tranlations are expected.

22nd communication from central committe:
Dear Members of the National Trust, Dear Members of the CCI
Dear Members of the ISPS and Vashi Boards,
CC The National Coordinators

In 2013 several matters concerning events in India were brought to the attention of the CC. At the beginning of the year, parents of children at the ISPS School in Dharamsala approached the CC and shared their heartfelt concern about the situation in IS PS; consequently the CC advised the World Foundation to conduct an independent evaluation to restore confidence in the situation. The WF agreed but the ISPS Board did not. Rather a group affiliated to the Board mandated its own exercise whose conclusions were not circulated. This of course does not promote transparency and trust. The fact we are a spiritual community does not imply we wish management to operate in secrecy. We know the school was questioned by outside powe rs in the past and we rallied to defend it but the Board should help us to be in a position to do so.

More recently a number of people suggested a mediation of the CC in the conflict affecting Vashi. The CC of course deeply shares the concern expressed about events in Vashi, especially since some of its members had been trying for quite some time to request both parties involved (VHC and the trustees) to chose the path of reconciliation. It is most unfortunate but tensions between the two parties have indeed been ongoing over the year and we have been recommending that a solution be found before we get to where we now, regrettably, find ourselves.

For a CC mediation in Vashi to bring some results, any help that we would have been willing to offer would have required the prior request and willingness of both parties in order for it to be effective and it would also have called for our own assessment of conditions that could bring about a solution.

Both the fate of our children and the future of the Vashi Center are important to the global sangha. At the same time the truth of the matter is that the CC has no authority to dictate how situations in ISPS or Vashi can be solved without the consent of the respective boards.

With respect to ISPS and in the interest of the institution, the CC chose not to bypass the Board and in both cases, common sense suggests that a solution must be found with the Boards of the respective institutions. Hence people who focus their mail attacks on Board members may perhaps feel better but they do not focus on a solution.

We remain mindful of the fact that, when HHSM created the Central Committee, She also asked that a Central Committee be created in India. Therefore we consider that a lasting return to auspiciousness and peace in India, our largest national sangha, would require a similar effort at reconciliation between the institutions in India, whose divergences are a relevant context to the difficulties in Vashi.

This is why, we would like to humbly refer to our previous mail, and invite the National Trust, LET and the CC India to find the path of reconciliation by 1) talking to each other, and 2) discussing steps that would help a return to trust between those concerned. With such goodwill being activated, solutions for ISPS, Vashi, or other institutions will be much easier to reach. We would like to plead with Kalpana didi in the Mumbai LET Board to facilitate such a positive evolution and with Sadhana didi in the JSPS Board to accept the facilitation of a nonpartisan renewal of the Board of ISPS, adding members who are respectable and respected by all of us.

If further divisions in the sangha were deepened in the context of family run institutions and along dynastic lines, this would clearly not serve the interest of the sangha or of the family of HH Shri Mataji. It would be so contrary to the teachings of Shri Mataji that this trend must be stopped and this course firmly avoided.

With love and respect, we bow to the collective wisdom of our brothers and sisters in India,
The Members of the Central Committee
