Tyagajeevi and Chairman of Loka Seva Trust, Gangadhar Bhat, regrets illegal 12/9/2012 trust deed amendment action, in court affidavit

[Note that this post is about an event reported on social media a few days ago.]

Satyameva Jayate! Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba seems to have showered His Grace on the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust and its trustees in their quest for establishing Sathya & Dharma in the Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Trust.

Sri Gangadhar Bhat, elderly Tyagajeevi  (about 86 years age) and chairman of Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Trust filed an affidavit, dated 23rd Feb. 2017, in the "COURT OF THE PRINCIPAL DISTRICT & SESSIONS JUDGE, CHICKBALLAPUR", in the context of the case between Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust (SSSCT) and Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Trust & others. The affidavit can be viewed here: https://saibabathepurnaavatarandi.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/ra-102-of-2016-affidavit-gangadhara-bhat.pdf.

The crucial point in the affidavit is Sri Gangadhar Bhat (GB) stating that he was misled in executing the Loka Seva Trust deed amendment document on 12/9/2012 (12th Sep. 2012) at Chickaballapura. The amendment, if I recall correctly, dealt with changing the way in which trustees are added/removed to the Loka Seva Trust. In particular, it removed the clause giving SSSCT the sole authority to add/remove trustees to Loka Seva Trust. GB says that he did not realize that this amendment was illegal as it was done without the knowledge of and without the concurrence of two Loka Seva trust trustees, Sri S.S. Naganand and (then trustee) Sri B.R. Vasuki. [If I recall correctly, prior to this amendment, there were 5 trustees in the Loka Seva Trust which included Sri B.N. Narasimhamurthy (aged about 70 years).] Note that Sri S.S. Naganand is a trustee both of the Loka Seva Trust and of SSSCT.

GB writes in point 4 of the affidavit, ("said document" refers to above mentioned Loka Seva trust deed amendment of 12/9/2012), "I have since realised that the said document is illegal and the document was the handiwork of Sri B.N. Narasimha Murthy to keep out Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust from the affairs of Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Trust and goes against the will and instructions of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba who has been my guiding force for over 60 years. I sincerely regret for having signed the said deed and I state that the deed of amendment dated 12/9/2012 is not lawful and was illegally got up to spite the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust and goes against the principle of truth propounded by my Guru and God Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba."

This is from the chairman of the Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Trust, who was chairman at the time of the amendment (12/9/2012), and is chairman even today (as Karnataka High Court has stayed the Loka Seva Trust resolutions of Jan 2017 removing GB sir as chairman and trustee)!!!

Now I think it is just a matter of time before Sri B.N. Narasimha Murthy and others of Muddenahalli group lose the main court case filed by SSSCT against Loka Seva Trust (which challenged the 12/9/2012 trust deed amendment). Then, I guess, Loka Seva trust trustees will revert to what it was prior to the ILLEGAL amendment of 12/9/2012, and Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust will have the sole power to add or remove Loka Seva Trust trustees.

What a stunning turnaround!!! GB sir took nearly four and a half years to realize his mistake and make HANDSOME AMENDS by filing this affidavit in court. I am reminded of a Hindi saying, "Bhagavan ke ghar der hai andher nahi" meaning, "In the house of God there is delay but not darkness"!!!

GB sir goes on to say in points 6 and 7, (defendant No.2 refers to Sri B.N. Narasimha Murthy), "Under the active participation and support of Defendant No. 2 said Madhusudan Naidu is continuing to hold out that he is the 'chosen communicator' of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and pretends that he can communicate Baba's messages and instructions to devotees and is playing a well orchestrated game of deception and is misleading large number of persons with a view to collect donations and money.".. "Defendant No. 2 has appropriated to himself the spiritual successorship of Bhagavan Baba and by misusing Madhusudan Naidu is carrying out a well planned deception strategy." .. "I state that I have been objecting to such deception and that I have distanced myself from such illegal and immoral activities of Defendant No. 2 and his supporters which is contrary to all the teachings of Bhagavan Baba."

Ravi: I mentally bow down and say Namaskar to Revered Gangadhar Bhat sir (Gangadharanna) for this GREAT ACT of SERVICE and COURAGE to Sathya & Dharma that he has done, at a ripe old age of 86 years, despite suffering from some reported health challenges. May Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba continue to shower His Grace on GB sir and give him strength, courage and wisdom as he comes back to the path of Sathya & Dharma followed by Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust.

In my considered view, this act of GB sir will go a long way in eventually reversing the HIJACK of Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Trust and associated educational institutions by Sri B.N. Narasimha Murthy & group.

Sathyameva Jayate! By sharing the truth of these matters with the court, GB sir has ensured that eventually Sathya will win and will get re-established in Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva trust and associated educational institutions. Jai Sairam!
