This above site is a series of factual essays about how J Donald Walters
committed copyright theft, fraud, sexual abuse of his position,

His real power was his ability to manipulate others to fulfill his own personal ambitions. This goes on a lot in the field of religion in this world - devotees beware.

There are other organizations with their own agendas in this world.Some will use the name Paramahansa Yogananda, or show his name on their books, and even publish some of His outdated editions,  but may not truly represent Him or His teachings and Legacy as he taught.
