Did Yogananda want new interpretations of his teachings after his passing?

When you quote a letter from Master to a disciple offering advice on how to run the organization, and then claim that what the Master actually MEANT was that all spiritual organizations should be under the rule of Mt. Washington, then indeed you are interpreting the Master's words.

If your are saying that there is only ONE POSSIBLE INTERPRETATION of a Master's words, then you are engaging in one of the primary practices of religious fundamentalism.

Your continual quoting of Master, without showing any evidence of your own realization, is another common practice of fundamentalists. Whether someone is thumping the bible, or the teachings of Yogananda, it's still the same. Intolerance, bigotry, condemnation, judgmentalism.

Oh, our poor Guru- seeing his teachings being used by fundies only fifty years after he left.
