SRF has a large center in Encinitas, CA. Pretty gardens, spacey staff. Yogananda didn't exactly starve, he was quite rotund. Oh, excuse me, that's pran, not blubber.
This local group had some scandals not too far back, but I don't remember what the situation was.
I remember some kids did the hyperventiliation thing in high school, but I was always too chicken.
