Ketch,

Yes I received from the publisher, Joan Wight, copies of the original letters from Dr. Lewis and Brother Sarolananda. Both were exactly the same as she had printed on the facing page in the book. In other words, because of space concerns and financial reasons (she self-published the book and all costs of printing were borne solely by her)the printer advised her that it would be better to just print a part of the letters, with the entire letter printed on the opposite page.

Ms. Wight was very gracious and she told that she is not behind the yogananda-dif website as she's been accused by some on other yogananda-related websites.

I still have the photocopies of the original letters, they are very special to me, of course.

I believe it important to understand the different roles that close disciples of Yoganandaji played in the years of his lifetime. Ms. Wight explained that each had their own special role based upon what the Master assigned them, like a hand that has five fingers to work efficiently. It is a mistake to think that one's position within the organization translates to anything beyond the above, in my humble opinion. As it is to elevate those who wear the ocher robe above us, householders/disciples, just different places for different disciples.

Hope that helps. I attempted to scan the photocopies of the letters on the other yogananda website but due to poor computer knowledge just couldn't get it done. But, as I say, the letters are genuine and she truthfully publishes them as written.
