Subject: Who do you believe?
The following is shared to show how SRF has changed Yogananda words, and then tried to cover it up. It has to do with their forgery of Yogananda signature. To read the web page and see the photos that showed how SRF did this, go to:
Why is this significant? Because it shows that one cannot trust SRF when they say 'Master said this', 'Master said that'.
The American College Dictionary defines forgery as: 1. the making of a fraudulent imitation of a thing, or of something spurious which is put forth as genuine. 2. act of fabricating or producing falsely.
Above is the real signature of Paramhansa Yogananda The signature as it appeared in every edition of the "Autobiography of a Yogi" through the 7th Edition in 1956. The above is taken from the 7th Edition. This is one year after Rajasi’s passing. Rajasi never once during his term of office changed the spelling of Yogananda’s name
Notice that each "a" in Yogananda's real signature, is distinctly different in appearance. That there is a natural break or space between the "m" and the "h" in Paramhansa. Notice that neither the "m" or the "h" end or start with blunt ends. The ends are tapered by the lifting up and downs of the pen.
The second version of Yogananda’s name, which appears above, is not Yogananda's real signature. The scan is taken from the "Autobiography of a Yogi" 8th Edition, 1959. The first time we see Yogananda's name changed is in the "Self-Realization Magazine" July-August issue of 1958. (Reasons why SRF changes spelling in 1958)
Until 1958, Yogananda's organization's publications never dishonored Paramhansa Yogananda by spelling his name other than how he wrote it. Under the presidency of Rajasi, all publications where Paramhansa Yogananda also. The truth is, if SRF had ever possessed, in reality a signature of Yogananda spelt with the extra "a", they would not have had to forge the signature above. Today with the aid of computers it is very easy to alter film and pictures in an attempt to cover-up this lack integrity and poor judgment on the part of SRF. So I suggest if you see a picture with Yogananda's name spelt with an extra "a", don't believe it. until an outside independent handwriting expert verifies that signature. If someone has already stooped to the depths of forgery and lies, one would be very foolish to think that they would not try again to cover-up.
Note that SRF has taken the first "a" in "Yogananda" and inserted it into the natural break in Paramhansa between the "m" and the "h". Note that there are now two "a"s which are exactly alike. Why was this artificial change made?
