Actually this tells us very little. All it shows is that there are two slightly different versions of the same article. We do not know when the changes were made, who they were made by, or what their intentions were.

For all we know Yogananda himself decided to change the article in later years to emphasise the role of SRF, and to include the techniques he taught which were not originally a part of Kriya Yoga as taught by Lahiri Mahasaya. This is not an unreasonable speculation. At the time of the first statement in 1937 Nerode had not yet split from Yogananda. Dhirananda may have been teaching Kriya Yoga independently, but apart from that there was no source for Kriya Yoga in the west other than Yogananda's organisation. There was no need to emphasise that no all sources claiming to give Kriya Yoga were valid. The changes in the wording could simply be a response to changing circumstances.

Do you have any evidence that the chnages were not made or authorised by Yogananda?
