You say: Ananda says it wants to get Master’s unpublished works published sooner than SRF is doing it. But look at Ananda’s track record on this. Ananda’s version of Master’s interpretation of The Rubaiyat, edited by Don Walters’ and published with Yogananda’s name as author was a dismal mishmash. This editing job makes Master’s work sound as though it was written by Walters. I’d rather wait for SRF’s editors to do their painstaking and careful work and publish books that preserve our Gurus’s writings. Ananda supplants all Yogananda’s writings and teachings with those of Walters’- Walters’ 14 steps, Festival of Light, etc.. These are not just editing revisions but deliberate attempts to divert attention towards Mr. Walters.

You would be quite surprised by how many people have decided that the Ananda version of Yogananda's Rubaiyat is better than SRF's edited version- even though SRF spent gobs of money on graphics, packaging, and advertising.

For fifty years, SRF has painstakingly and carefully changed the Master's words. Your condemnation of Kriyananda for changing the Master's words is hilarious for those who know.

Ananda also has published the original Autobiography of a Yogi, The Essence of Self-Realization (the words of Yogananda), and I hear more is on the way. Far from supplanting Yogananda's words with Kriyananda's, Ananda is hewing to the original.

By the way, on a message board, it's traditional when you 'reply' to a message, that you actually reply to it, rather than trying to change the subject. So, what about SRF forging Yogananda's signature and the obvious fact that this shows SRF to be entirely untrustworthy?
