In fact Ketch did not make the remarks you ascribe to him. Ketch does not know much about Kirpal Singh, though he does believe him to have been a well respected spiritual teacher.

It seems to me there is something very disrespectful about claiming that such figures as Kirpal Singh and Paramahansa Yogananda, now that they are dead, have seen the error of their ways, and now accept Paulsens teachings in their entirety. Does Paulsen really believe that he knows better than Yogananda about how kriya should be taught? Would any sincere disciple of Yogananda speak this way?

Given the choice, I would listen to what he has to say now, not hold him to what he thought the deal was before he saw a bigger picture.

Perhaps, but we don't have the choice do we? Kirpal Singh's body is dead. Perhaps he does appear to a few close followers, but they do not seem to be aware of his change of mind.

We do not have the words of Kirpal Singh as he is today, only the claims of one person that he appears to Paulsen's followers at their meditation sessions. Given the choice, I think most people would rather listen to what he is known to have said when he was alive.
