Thanks for posting that Ketch. I was really surprised to learn the depth of Sri Nerode spiritual background and lineage, especially after all the mud-slinging that's been spread throughout the press and net with regards to him.

Another thought. While he doesn't mention Sri Yoganandaji directly, I was struck by the strength of Yogananda's spiritual magnetism to have drawn someone, like Nerode, and Dhirananda, as his disciples and who followed him to America. We in the west have one view of Yogananda, an impartial one it seems, that is gleaned from his writings, stories, tapes and what we learn from those Americans who became his direct disciples. But there is another side of Yogananda--that of his eastern disciples--which we don't often understand, due to what amounts to a type of censorship; written off, never mentioned, much less described in detail today, as if the less said the better by those western disciples who've become 'keepers of the flame'.

But to those who, like myself, want to understand everything about the man we call guru it only adds to his legacy to know that he had Indian disciples of the highest category who also called him guru, no matter the proceeding incidents that've appeared to have come between he and them so long ago.
