Hundreds of friends from around the world will gather in the birthplace of this movement, Ananda Village, to honor the life of Swami Kriyananda, Ananda’s founder and direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, and look to the future together. This week-long program will weave together all aspects of Ananda’s worldwide mission—fulfilling the will of the Masters, spiritual community, yoga in daily life, the path of Self-realization—into an experience of divine friendship for all who come.

The culminating event of the week will be the dedication of the Temple of Light at Ananda Village, a symbol of the uniting spirit that Ananda represents. Dedicated to truth-seekers everywhere, the Temple of Light is a physical manifestation of Ananda’s mission in every way.

Our Full-HD Online Broadcast is designed to make it possible for everyone, no matter where they are located, to celebrate this joyful occasion with their worldwide Ananda family.
