Mike,
Please provide some evidence to support your suggestion that Yogananda died as he was about to introduce a colleague.

There is a great deal of evidence that Yogananda had forseen his own passing in the form of statements from his disciples concerning what he had said to them on this matter. We must accept that the evidence of disciples is not as strong as evidence of independent witnesses.

Please also provide some evidence in support of your suggestion that Yogananda suffered from heart disease. His death seems to have been instantaneous, which is unusual for a death caused by heart attack (as far as I know - I am not an expert). An official cause of death has to be given, and heart attack is often used for an unexplained death.

The fact that some saints die young is not of any relevance. It does not detract from their work. My belief, and the belief of many here is that Yogananda had worked out the bad karma of others in his own body during the last years of his life, but of course I cannot produce any proof of this, it is something which I believe purely as a matter of blind faith.

I tend to agree with you about the rarety of genuine incorruption. I have seen photographs of supposedly preserved bodies, and they looked very dead and shriveled to me.
