To become disillusioned is a very sad, especially when it involves an organization or people that represent the time of spirtual awakening in a person's life. But it is also very good to become dis-illusioned, to see things clearly and simply. Our aim should be devotion to the Supreme Lord, the Most High. We love God and are enamored at the virtue that we find in this world. All worldy organizations and people that purport to work on this behalf for the sake of others would reasonably be expected to demonstrate integrity and express virtue. Honesty is a virtue. The easiest way to know this is by using our consciences and observing virtue or lack thereof. It is virtue and vice, after all, that express the spritual content directly to us in this world.
A long time ago, I knew a lovely person named Bernard who lived at Yogananda's hermitage from a young age until Yogananda's death. I spent a good deal of time with him and out of curiosity asked him on occasion about Yogananda and life at the hermitage. Among other things he told me (concerning Yogananda's passing) that "when the cat is away, the mice will play." This was one of the kinder statements he made about the things that concern you.
