  Specific Stories copied from other places on this board by the EZOP
I am creating this section to hold specific experiences posted on this board. There is so much debating going on that new people are emailing me that they can’t find specifics. This section will contain specifics, with no debate. I will post messages here, pulling them out of the board when I find them, to keep them easy to find without the clutter. Help me find them!

  Links to Really Good Threads
Please post links in this section to the best threads you have found here on the Walrus site. We get email that it is difficult to re-find some of the really good threads on the board. When you all find them, please post a short summary here and the link. The Walrus Management Committee will review submissions and make sure they relate to the core purpose of this board. Thanks for the help.

  Dealing with my doubts
One of the first reactions to finding out how Mother Center runs is often doubts about Master or the spiritual path. Ask questions, make suggestions or share stories about how you coped with what exposure to SRF has done to your spiritual life.

  Discussions about Yogananda
This board was setup to discuss the organization that is now claiming to be the sole representative of Yogananda on earth. Some here who appear not to be devotees of Yogananda want to discuss him as well as SRF. While we feel he was a great Master we understand the confusion based on the claims and actions of SRF and its leaders. Messages about Yogananda will be directed here.
