The Muhammad Subuh Foundation is named in honor of the founder of Subud, Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo, and was established to fund the long-term objectives of the World Subud Association.

Subud is a non-denominational form of worship that is open to people of all races and religions. The specific practice of Subud is a form of receiving which can awaken a person’s inner self guided by the power of God, or the Universal Life Force. This practice can awaken a sense of “human responsibility” towards all people, with a consequent wish to help our fellow human beings who are in need. It is a spiritual path that encourages its members to work and live a normal life.

Bapak’s vision was of a Subud association that was active and effective in the world, in all fields of human endeavor. MSF exists to support this vision by providing financial assistance in a wide-range of areas, including social and humanitarian work, cultural endeavors, and youth projects.

“If other foundations can generate achievements through their groups, then we as a Subud family should follow, and gather and care for our assets so that what is small will become big and strong, acting as a support and coordinating body for the welfare and needs of us all.” Ibu Siti Rahayu Wiryohudoyo, Honorary Lifetime Trustee.
