"I do believe that whenever we see the term SRF inserted into Master's quoted teachings in such a repetitious manner that extolls not the kriya teachings of our lineage but the temporal organization created to dissiminate those teachings (as in the above example) we can understand the amount of "editorial" work being done."

Yes Bill. Here is a good example:


“LAHIRI MAHASAYA’S TEACHING IS THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST, not through a mere claim, but in actuality. HIS KRIYA TECHNIQUE OF MEDITATION expands the cup of concentration so that it can be large enough to hold the ocean of Christ-consciousness, (consciousness that was present in the life of Jesus). LAHIRI MAHASAYA’S TECHNIQUE can reveal to each soul that God belongs to him by divine birthright and has not to be evolutionarily attained. But actual step-by-step meditation is necessary in order to destroy self-created delusion. The prodigal son walked away from God. Each of his retracing footsteps back to God consists of a mental technique which actually enables him to return....

LAHIRI MAHASAYA’S KRIYA TECHNIQUE IS THE FULFILLMENT OF JESUS CHRIST’S PROMISE TO SEND THE COMFORTER. THROUGH KRIYA the devotee can expand his consciousness from the body to infinity, without losing consciousness, by tuning in with the actual Cosmic Sound or the Holy Ghost sound emanating form the vibration of all atoms and electrons. When the devotee tunes himself with this sound, he finds the greatest all-sorrow-quenching Comfort and perceives his Spirit present not only in his little body but in all vibrating space....

After the passing of a prophet, his inspiration usually is changed into a dogmatic creed by his blind adherents, but THE FOLLOWERS OF LAHIRI MAHASAYA are given step-by-step wonderful methods of meditation which work and which yield results of ever-increasing divine joy from the beginning, if practiced intensely. Therefore, Self Realization of Divine Bliss-contact of God and not beliefs holds the followers of Self-Realization Fellowship together.

HENCE, CHRISTIANS AND all truth-seekers who have suffered long from theological indigestion ought to try LAHIRI MAHASAYA’S WORLD-EMANCIPATING TECHNIQUE with scientific steadiness, just as they might join a university, and find for themselves that God can be contacted in this life, now.” – Paramhansa Yogananda, “Inner Culture”, March 1937, Vol. 9–5.

“THE KRIYA YOGA TECHNIQUE AND OTHER SRF TECHNIQUES OF MEDITATION expand the cup of concentration so that it can become large enough to hold the ocean of Christ Consciousness, the consciousness that was present in the life of Jesus Christ. In this sense SELF-REALIZATION FELLOWSHIP TEACHINGS CONSTITUTE A SECOND COMING OF CHRIST. THE SRF TECHNIQUES can reveal to each soul that God belongs to him by divine birthright and has not to be evolutionarily attained. Step-by-step Yoga meditation is necessary in order to destroy self-created delusion. The prodigal son walked away from God; each of his retracing footsteps back to God consists of a mental technique which actually enables him to return his consciousness to the state of God-awareness....

SELF-REALIZATION TEACHINGS ARE THE FULFILLMENT OF JESUS CAHRIST’S PROMISE TO SEND THE COMFORTER. THROUGH KRIYA YOGA AND THE OTHER SRF TECHNIQUES the devotee can expand his consciousness from the body to infinity, without losing consciousness, by tuning in with the Cosmic Sound by tuning in with the actual Cosmic Sound – the Holy Ghost sound emanating form the vibration of all atoms and electrons. When the devotee tunes himself with this Sound, he finds the Comfort that quenches all sorrows, and perceives his soul as Spirit present not only in his little body but in every part of all vibrating space....

After the death of a prophet, his inspirational guidance is usually changed into a dogmatic creed by his blind adherents. FOLLOWERS OF THE SRF GURUS are given wonderful step-by-step methods of meditation, which work and which yield results of ever-increasing divine joy from the beginning, if practiced intensely. Direct realization of the divine bliss-contact of God will hold the followers of Self-Realization Fellowship together.

Truth-seekers who have suffered long from theological indigestion ought to try THE WORLD-EMANCIPATING TECHNIQUE OF KRIYA YOGA with scientific steadiness, just as they might join a university, and find for themselves that they can commune with God now, in this life.” – SRF Service Readings, Vol. I: 33, page 6-7
