Hanuman has been a part of Ananda since 1981 when he and he wife Mari lived in the Ananda Atherton Ashram. In 1984 they moved to Ananda Village, where Hanuman worked as a carpenter, an ICU nurse, and a chiropractor.
In 1989, Swami Kriyananda made he and his wife Lightbearer Ministers for Ananda. The two moved to Portland in 1991 and have lived there for nearly 20 years, serving as community and cafe managers, co-directors of the church, and ministers. He is a certified parish nurse for the Ananda Portland community and congregation.
In May of 2010 Hanuman and Mari purchased an adult living home across the street from Ananda Laurelwood. Ananda House is a spiritual assisted living home based on the Evening Hospice precepts set forth by Swami Kriyananda. It is a multigenerational home where practicing adults can have assistance with all aspects of living while continuing to live a conscious active life for God. Hanuman is also working on a upcoming book, Conscious Exits.
