Yogananda explaining Kriya

"Because of certain ancient yogic injunctions, I cannot give a full explanation of Kriya Yoga in the pages of a book intended for the general public. The actual technique must be learned from a Kriyaban or Kriya Yogi; here a broad reference must suffice." (lst edition, p. 231)

In the first edition, Yogananda says simply, Kriya must be learned from a Kriyaban or Kriya Yogi. No institution is mentioned; disciples of all our gurus qualify. Yogananda's words beautifully match Babaji's statement that Kriya should be given freely. By the twelfth edition, SRF editing has Yogananda saying that the Kriyabans have to be "authorized" and from SRF or YSS. (lst, p. 231; 12th, p. 275)

Can you explain to us , Ketch , how this change in the book came about, did Yogananda authorise it ?
