We’ve Reached Our Goal of 1 Million Prayers for World Peace!

This week, Ananda Sangha Worldwide is celebrating the International Day of Peace by reaching our goal to inspire 1 million prayers for peace and harmony.

In this time of severe polarization along lines of religion, class, and political persuasion, Ananda launched this campaign for peace and harmony by drawing from the ancient yogic teachings to bring light and hope into the world.

Using a prayer demand for peace and harmony created by Paramhansa Yogananda, and harnessing the technology of today, thousands have been uplifted with an experience of inner peace.

Your donation to the 2016 Ananda Worldwide Appeal will help us inspire millions more through the universal tools of yoga. Thank you for your continued support.
