I have that book, same edition, and it is very difficult to distinguish if it is an "a" or part of the "m". It is not so "unmistakable" as you think. Maybe a specialist can tell. Of course the "authorities" in this board who speaks on behalf of SRF will swear that is is an "a", but I am not so sure.

Personally, I hope you are right. But the question is: if SRF has Master's signature with the "a", why did they forge the "official" signature? for THAT signature was evidently forged, there is no question about this. I have "Cosmic Chants", edition 1953, and there the signature (the same appearing in all SRF books later, with the "a") spells "Paramhansa", without "a".

It's ok to change the TITLE from "Paramhansa" to "Paramahansa", if the later is the correct Sanskrit spelling. No question about this. But it was necessary to change his SIGNATURE? But, even so, this is not a big issue. Big issues are: airbrushing photos, rewriting the history, changing Whispers and Autobiography, and so on.

By the way, anyone here has the tape "Stories to Remember", published by Ananda? There you can listen Master's talk at the Lake Shrine Dedication. He states clearly: "I did not started a new church or a new cult. I don't believe in it." Wow!

Master also speaks about the colonies. In the Service Readings (Vol. III:43), published by SRF, that talk appears in a condensed form. "Colonies" was changed to "ashrams", and his statement above quoted was omited--of course.
