I forgot to mention that David Frawley has a unique perspective on Paramhansa Yogananda and his Autobiography.
Frawley, besides being a sage and a scholar, has no sectarian bone to pick regarding the various Yogananda based organizations. So, his review of the original Autobiography of a Yogi is free from the sectarian dogma and fundamentalism which is so freely dished out here. And, he is also free from any ties to Ananda and their point of view.
In other words, we have here the fresh perspective of an 'outsider' to the Yogananda infighting, but an 'insider' to the ancient yoga teachings.
You would show both wisdom and spiritual maturity to listen to someone for a change, even though they have an opinion that is different from yours.
