About Jaya Helin

Jaya Helin and his wife Sadhana Devi, are founding members of Ananda.

For many years Jaya served as the general manager of Ananda Village, overseeing the development of housing and business clusters, roads, water and phone systems, and other infrastructure that supports the Village residents and guests.

Later, he and Sadhana Devi helped start an Ananda Center on the East Coast of the U.S., and from there, it was only a short “jump” to Ananda India!
