Sudarshan Simpson

Minister, Meditation Teacher

Sudarshan Simpson

A founding member of Ananda, Sudarshan has always been very at home out of doors – hiking, backpacking, and exploring. He has tremendous knowledge about nature, and more importantly, a sensitive attunement and awareness for what is happening around him. He is a gifted storyteller and writer – just the person to hang out with around a campfire, swapping stories.

Sudarshan is also a great lover of meditation, has practiced it devotedly for over 30 years, and has taught hundreds of others to practice it as well. He leads the Meditating in Nature retreat. Sudarshan is married to Savitri, one of The Expanding Light's best-known teachers.

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.
