    One of the followers of his teaching told me that he left his body on his own..can anyone here tell me facts about Paramahansa Yogananda's death ?

    The official cause of death was a heart attack. But anything is open to interpretation by devotees and detractors alike.

    she told me that it was mahasmadhi and his body remained unaffected for almost 20 decay in body.
    was just now talking to one more guy he said there is contradictions about his death as well

    With controversial figures, it seems there are always differences in opinion. I personally think that both devotees of Gurus and detractors tend to exaggerate. The devotees tell of miracles, and naught much else, and the detractors find nothing but bad. The truth is most likely somewhere in the middle. On a personal note, I more or less don't care, and consider it none of my business either way. But for an individual seeking, I can see caring some, but I still think it's wise to take all things with a grain of salt too. The 'My Guru is better than your Guru' syndrome seems decidedly not in the spirit of things, as does painting bleak pictures.

    Best wishes in finding your own peace of mind on it.
