What broke down negotiations between SSSCT and SSSIO?
The SSSIO wanted to come together and be part of the GC to improve collaboration and communication but not at the expense of losing the current successful function and structure of the SSSIO. Also, the leadership would not go against Swami’s direct commands and guidelines given to them. The terms of reference that the SSSIO sent to the SSSCT were very inclusive with the GC as a coordinating and collaborating body but without control over the SSSIO in terms of appointment of officers. However, the SSSCT changed the terms of reference to basically include control and command over the SSSIO.
