Photos from Jon Parsons’ Book About SRF’s Lawsuit Against Ananda

These photos are from A Fight For Religious Freedom: A Lwayer’s Personal Account of Copyrights, Karma and Dharmic Litigation, by attorney Jon Parsons.

Jon was Ananda’s only attorney for the great bulk of SRF’s twelve-year suit. The tiny Ananda legal team faced a Goliath, in the form of a spiritual organization that hired the nation’s third-largest law firm and had deep pockets. (SRF spent more than $50 million of its members’ money in its attempt to destroy Ananda and Swami Kriyananda.)

Against all odds, the underdogs won — spectacularly. Ananda won over 95 percent of the issues in the case.

These photos from the book give a small glimpse into the persons who played major roles in freeing Paramhansa Yogananda’s legacy from institutionalism.
