Untitled-1Ananda is a global movement founded in 1968 by Swami Kriyananda. Ananda is based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, who showed how all can realize God in their daily lives as a tangible, loving reality. Here you can find videos, articles, online books, and online classes on nearly every spiritual subject. We can also answer spiritual questions you may have through our Ask Ananda’s Experts forum.
