November 8, 2018 Dear Friends and Supporters of our Maharishi Vedic City Pandits, On October 28, 2006, the first group of Maharishi Vedic Pandits who Maharishi sent to our community arrived. We have been able to sustain our Maharishi Vedic Pandit program for 12 years through the dedication and efforts of many people, especially our large family of donors. We could not have achieved so much without you. As you may know, we have been working very hard for a long time to bring new Pandits to Maharishi Vedic City. The plan has been to keep our current Maharishi Vedic Pandits in place until replacements arrive, so that the program would run continuously and there would be no timing gap. We were confident we would have replacement Pandits by now, but despite our best efforts, this has not proved possible. We have explored all avenues, but a gap in our Pandit coverage is inevitable at this point. Our current Maharishi Vedic Pandits have been so very generous and devoted to our community. They have been here a long time. They have extended their stay several times so that our Vedic Pandit program could continue uninterrupted, despite their own pressing family obligations at home. But now, they must return home. They will return to India in mid-November, after Mahalakshmi. We will be sorry to see them go, but we will send them home with deep gratitude and heartfelt thanks for their dedication to our community. We are aware that this situation will come as a surprise to many. It arose very quickly—we did not anticipate it—through a combination of visa issues, Pandit availability, and some recent family developments that our current Vedic Pandits must address. We will continue working diligently to recruit the most skilled and appropriate Maharishi Vedic Pandits for our Fairfield/MVC/MUM community. We are optimistic about this, and already have some good leads—but it will take some time. We will let everyone know as soon as we have concrete news to report. Jai Guru Dev, Raja John, Bevan, Sandra, and Bhupendra
