In reply to: Mike Drake - 5 Jun 2001 's message, "Yogananda's alleged immutability" on 16:06

In fact I did once show the letter to an undertaker, and he told me that it would be unkown in his experience (I have no idea what his level of expertise was, he was only a vague acquaintance).

It is explained clearly in the letter that the embalming process which would normally be applied if a body was to be left on public view was not used in the case of Yogananda as it was unnecessary.

I came across a newspaper report that the Forest Lawn Memorial-Park still receives many letters asking about Mr Rowe's statements, but as all tbe witnesses are no longer available they are only able to confirm that the letter exists. Note however that they do not dispute that the state of Yogananda's body would be very unusual, which you wuld assume that they would be in a position to.

Furthermore eyewitness accounts (from disciples who may be considered not to be objective admittedly) suggest that the body exhibited other unusual feature, such as shedding tears, and the fragrance of flowers. It is said that at the funeral a rainbow appeared in a cloudless sky, but I have never seen a photograph of this and again it is down to the eyewitness reports of those who were there, mainly disciples.

Sometimes people will come to different conclusions based on the same evidence. Some of us believe, and some don't. We must respect other peoples right to their opinions.
