"I can confirm from other sources Bill's statements about the allegations of womanising made against Yogananda." So what are these other sources Ketch? And in response to the LA News of the 1930's stories, if you go this website regarding the readings of Edgar Cayce there is the following recorded from a woman who went to him on a couple of occasions for readings: http://www.are-cayce.org/readings/0813/002.html "The Swami gave a series of lectures and lessons in Miami to a crowded house each night. He was about to begin his advanced lesson series when the
husband of one of his students started trouble with a vengeance. He went to police headquarters and accused the Swami of really terrible things. (This man
was afterward convicted of murder!) Through his machinations and activities he started a riot and a mob stormed the auditorium where the lectures were being
held. Yogananda was compelled to remain in seclusion for a while and then he quietly left the state without completing his course of lessons. The mayor and
the police knew that he was innocent of any wrong doing, but they thought it was best not to incite the mob by trying to continue the lectures. "To add to the
Swami's troubles, Hearst took this occasion to start persecuting him in the Hearst newspapers. His editorial writer, Arthur Brisbane, rather outdid himself. His
articles were venomous. That there was not truth in them didn't matter to Brisbane or Hearst. They carried the persecution to the headquarters of the Swami's.
organization in Los Angeles. Newspaper men invaded the building and made themselves obnoxious in many ways. Day after day, scurrilous articles appeared
in the Los Angeles newspapers owned by Hearst. It was a most trying time for the students as well as the Swami."
