I won't have time to read the referent web site for another week or more, but took a quick glance at just its main index page, which shows an oddity.

The site's main page refers to DW as "Swami Kriyananda", though elsewhere DW testified, while under oath of honesty, that he formally dispensed with all his vows of swamihood in the mid-1980's (1985?) in a meeting with Daya Mata which was especially for that purpose. His testimony to that is on the web, and I apologize that I haven't time to make this general remark specific by searching it out just now and citing it here. This referent web site dated 18 Aug 01, apparently put up by his Ananda groupies, deems DW a "swami", with the monastic "K" name, which for him have both been totally obsolete for 16 years or longer, by his own solemn testimony.

Odd that his Ananda fans continue perpetuating the long dead name!
