Hi Andre :-) You're back! I was wondering what had happened to you too. Missed your unique West Australian perspective on things. :-) Regarding Josh (or was his name Todd? Can't remember, get them confused) some of the holier-than-thou types had turned him into the scapegoat of the board. He was very sincere in his search for his guru, and they verbally abused him for that. As if Yogananda himself hadn't had a million gurus! Even after he found Sri Yukteswar and was living in his ashram he was still running away and asking others to be his guru (remember the sleepless saint???) They were quite mean to him, and I think he became discouraged because he eventually stopped posting. A real pity, he seemed very sincere. A breath of fresh air in these kriya boards that attract so many stuffy old book crammers and pedants who fancy themselves authorities on self-realization just because they've read a few books and done a kriya or two.
