After being upset by Yogananda's personal life in New York, and after leaving Yogoda, Dhirananda started a suit in 1929 for payment of his part as author of Yogoda material and some of the works usually attributed to Yogananda. He did not have funds to pursue the suit to a conclusion then, He but sued and won in 1935. I have a copy of the court records. After he left in early 1929, he never spoke publically again ABOUT Yogananda, and according to reliable sources never spoke TO Yogananda again. Sri Nerode, after he left SRF in 1940, also never saw or spoke to Yogananda again. Both were disappointed and put him out of their minds and went on with their lives. So no, neither was present in the 1952 meeting you refer to. At that time one had not spoken to him for 23 years, the other for 12 years. There were never any reconciliations of any kind.

Jotin, who stayed on good terms with Yogananda, was nevertheless careful to keep the ownership and incorporation of his church entirely outside of SRF.

He also remained on good terms with Sri Nerode. Jotin was a product of the Ranchi School in Bengal which Yogananda and Dhirananda secured the funds for and taught in before coming over. He was personally very sweet and became proudly a 32 degree mason!

Sri Nerode and Dhirananda knew each other from at least 1926 when Nerode set up the Detroit Center, and remained friends after Dhirananda left in 1929 and while Nerode headed Mt Washington in 1929-1931 and for the rest of their lives. In 1930 their future wives were college chums, Srimata Nerode met Sri Nerode through the future Mrs Bagchi in 1930. Kamala, like Ma Durga, remained a faithful disciple, but taught Yoga independently elsewhere like Jotin for many years. I know nothing about the person you say was mentioned by Kriyananda. If I have a detail wrong, someone will correct me.

History does consist of filling in your own dotted lines between bare facts, I am afraid.
