Springtime at Ananda – Tulip Garden Open House

Dates Scheduled:

There are no dates currently scheduled.

April is a heavenly time to take some days for personal rejuvenation and to visit the beautiful tulip display at the Crystal Hermitage Gardens at Ananda Village. The gardens are open every day of the year, and all of April you will see tulips, wisteria, flowering cherry trees and many more plants in flower.

We are offering a special Personal Retreat stay on these weekends, however, you can reserve a Personal Retreat for most days in April.

Please reserve for your stay here

 

Every year we plant 17,000 tulips in the Crystal Hermitage gardens. This extraordinary display—tiers of tulips inter-planted with alyssum and pansies—overlooks the Yuba River canyon. Flowering cherry trees, dogwoods, and peonies in bloom (depending on when you arrive) add to the gala natural beauty.

You can also enjoy deep spiritual blessings in Shrine of the Masters, with its relics from the Masters in our lineage; the Chapel, filled with divine love; and the Moksha Mandir, final resting place of Ananda’s founder, Swami Kriyananda, blessed with a profound peace and expansive joy.

The tulips begin blooming early in April and usually last into early May. For updates on the tulips, visit the Crystal Hermitage website at www.crystalhermitage.org or call 530-478-7574
