Dear Friends,
Nayaswami Devi once said “You can count on maya to never fulfill its promise.”  The solution is to attune to what God wants and to cooperate with that.  God wants to flow through us.

By attachment to the world around us, we build our own prison. Through devotion to God and service to others, we free ourselves.

The great saints are often people who are living hundreds of years ahead of their time, to build energy and provide an example. They show us that we can live on a higher plane, wherever we are now.  

Where are looking to find your happiness and fulfillment?

Can you help us by contributing to Ananda Village’s new Temple of Light?  We are about $425,000 short of what is needed.  The Temple will serve Ananda Village and the greater community.  The Temple building will include two meeting / teaching rooms, which will be used by The Expanding Light Retreat for our own programs, and by other departments within Ananda Village.
