Ananda is a global movement based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, who showed how everyone can realize God in their daily lives as a tangible, loving reality. Ananda Sangha was founded in 1968 by Paramhansa Yogananda’s direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda. People from all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed at Ananda. Expand your sense of harmony, and gain an increased sense of God’s loving presence in your life through ancient and effective techniques including meditation, Kriya Yoga, spiritually oriented Hatha Yoga, community, and divine friendship.
“Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.“
