United Grand Lodges of Germany
To the attention of Mr. Rüdiger Templin
Most Worshipful Grand Master
Brother Rüdiger Templin
The Brethren from Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Bulgaria got acquainted with the published your letter dated 16th of April 2015 addressed to the Most Worshipful Grand Master Brother Valeri Mitkov. They got acquainted as well with the report of the Most Worshipful Grand Master of Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Bulgaria, Brother Valeri Mitkov made before the four members of the Council of the Grand Officers, which were present at the session according to the distributed by the chancery of the Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge protocol PSVS15234.
We address to you with an appeal for a little bit more detailed clarifications regarding the expressed in the letter satisfaction from the old process of regularization in progress now under new name which includes acceptance of bigger part of the members of Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Bulgaria. We, who are following the desires of all Brethren for coordination and synchronization of the efforts of all masons within the future shared and united Bulgarian orient, we cannot understand well, because follow and adhere to the steps on the path of the unification written by you in 2008 (Sofia, Bulgaria) and commented in 2010 (Arlington, USA) under two different Grand Masters on behalf of both Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Bulgaria and United Grand Lodge of Bulgaria for the creation of convention under the guidance of United Grand Lodges of Germany. In the present moment already exist two more masonic structures and that unification through acceptance which you, Brother, acclaim, means that you have changed your opinion and this path, which you were advising us to follow more than 7 years is already outdated for you. We fear that the situation from 2004 will be repeated again and the results will be even more negative concerning the fragmentation of brotherly chain of union. We are going to have a national conference of all brethren, we who believe in the path shown by you and it will be very beneficial for us, the brethren in more than half of the lodges in Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Bulgaria, to receive from you the wise clarifications of the Most Worshipful Grand Master of United Grand Lodges of Germany that introduced the light in 1997 in GLAFAMB.
