“I can’t begin to express in words how grateful I am for the past three months with you blessed souls. Although I’ve always been drawn to spiritual matters, for the first time in my life I feel that I have truly found myself. I am no longer alone, and I know what I am seeking. Now I have people to share this joyful journey with and help me along the way. This is certainly the greatest blessing, and I can’t thank you enough.”

– Shana S., Verona, NJ

Ananda is a worldwide movement to help you realize the joy of your own higher Self. It is based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda and was founded by his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda in 1968.
