Ananda communities worldwide have expanded to include sustainable farming. This has been a wonderful direction for us, and fulfills a request made by Swami Kriyananda.

This caused me to think about how, even more importantly, The Expanding LightOnline with Ananda, and the Ananda CommunitiesRetreats, and Meditation Groups around the world are serving as Spiritual Seed Farms—creating fertile environments for individual spirituality to grow and flourish. The profound and practical teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda provide a rich growing soil to nourish the growth of all who are interested.

You are welcome to plough as deeply into these environments as fits your own spiritual needs. We welcome those from other paths who use us as a resource to nurture their individual spiritual journeys, as well as those who want to explore Yogananda's path as their own. 

Blessings on your journey,

Inspiration from Swami Kriyananda

"Give life your heart, Bless everything that's grown. Fear not the loving: All this world's your own! Make rich the soil, But once the seed is sown, Seek freedom, don't linger: Go on alone!" 

From the song  Walk Like A Man by Swami Kriyananda.

Inspiration from Yogananda 
"... external seekers imagine things about the Truth of different teachings, but they never try to feel the joyous experience that comes through Self Realization of a Truth. People who draw inspiration from imagination fail to receive inspiration from Self Realization."
