I think Ketch himself mentioned that Yogananda himself engaged in Stalinesque revisions of photographic materials. Is that right, Ketch?

No that is not right, Mike. I do not know of any revisions of photographic materials by Yogananda, either Stalinesque or otherwise. Nor do I have any recollection of ever having made any such comments.

I did once state on this board that Yogananda had arranged for a robe to be painted on the photo of Lahiri Mahasaya, but it was correctly pointed out that this alteration was actually made by SRF after Yogananda's passing. The pictures which appeared in Yogananda's life all seem to show Lahiri Mahasaya bare chested.

BTW are you the same Mike Drake who is mentioned a few times at the site http://skepdic.com/ ? Do you have anything to do with that site?
