Om Shanti.Just revisiting this topic, I have to ask. The PBKs make an issue of the 16 January 1969 date but on the trust deed, it also mentions an "original 28 November 1968" deed.
Today, I was reading the latest edition of the Gyanamrit magazine published by the BKs in Hindi in which all the articles are tributes by BKs to Dadi Prakashmani. In his article (on page no. 16, second and third column) BK Ramesh Shah has thrown light on an almost unknown aspect of Yagya history.
Generally it is believed that Dadi Prakashmani became the Chief Administrative head after the demise of Brahma Baba in 1969 but Ramesh Bhai writes that when Mama left her body (in 1966), he wrote a letter to Brahma Baba requesting him to decide as to who would mainly control the Godly service from then on. According to BK Ramesh Shah, in the last half page of the Murli dated 01.04.66, Brahma Baba appointed Dadiji as the Chief Administrative head and Didiji as the additional chief administrative head with his own hands.
In November 1968, BK Ramesh Shah wrote a letter to Brahma Baba that you have appointed Dadiji as the Chief Administrative head but she has not been receiving the training as a Chief Administrative head from him which she is supposed to receive. On his suggestion, Brahma Baba invited Dadiji and him to seek their opinion on the setting up of World Renewal Spiritual Trust. Brahma Baba appointed Dadiji, big Didiji and Brother Anand Kishore and him for mutual consultation on the setting up of the Trust.
On the last day of the discussions, a question emerged as to who would be the Managing Trustee of the Trust? Prakashmani Dadiji and Didi Manmohiniji consulted each other and told Brahma Baba during the night class about him (i.e. BK Ramesh Shah) that Ramesh be made the Managing Trustee. Brahma Baba told him and he refused because he was very young and there were many more senior Maharathi brothers in the Yagya.
Then Brahma Baba told him through the authority of his Trikaldarshi (knower of three aspects of time) form that the Trikaldarshi Father says that Ramesh was the Managing Trustee Kalpa ago and he shall become even now and he would keep becoming every Kalpa. Because of that Shrimat he took the transactions of the Trust in his hands. ...
The very next day Brahma Baba sent him to Mumbai to undertake the task of setting up of the Trust and retained Dadiji at Abu and started training her (indirectly) in the task of the Chief Administrative head.
So, as per the above article, the task of setting up of World Renewal Trust began only after November 1968. It must have taken a couple of months for him to complete the formalities and might have intimated Brahma Baba about the setting up of the Trust in January, 1969.
As per the PBKs, the news about the Trust was given to Brahma Baba around 17th or 18th Januray, 1969 and he suffered a heart stroke on 18th January most probably because the Trust was not set up according to ShivBaba's Shrimat and according to the opinion of Ramesh Bhai, including the names of such BKs as Trustees whose names were not recommended by Brahma Baba.
Just as Ramesh Bhai has himself provided us the proof about the setting up of World Renewal Trust, I hope that we would get more proofs about the Trust as the time nears.
