Yogananda conducted a memorial service for Mahatma Gandhi, who had been assassinated on January 30. The service was held at the SRF Temple in Hollywood, California.
“Did Mahatma Gandhi keep up his Kriya Yoga practice, after his initiation by you?” Swami Kriyananda once asked Paramhansa Yogananda.
“Gandhi was a man of his word,” the Master replied. “He was a great man, and a man of truth. Yes, he kept up his practice.”
