Happy 4th of July.
I am posting a collection of photos from yesterday’s (Saturday) celebration of our 40th anniversary and our nations anniversary.

We had beautiful songs, yummy food, and great company. Swamiji visited each of the booths that showed the many aspects of Ananda Worldwide. He sang with the choir and also greeted many of the guests personally.

I was a very happy tired after spending the day chatting with many friends visiting us from all-over and taking pictures to share with you.

Bless you all.
P.S. At the end of the weekend I will post a link to a larger collection of photos for you to enjoy.


  1. Thank-you for these wonderful photos Barbara.
    You can feel the love and joy. We are so blessed to be disciples of a great guru, Parmahansa Yogananda. Swami looks so vibrant and strong.

    Many Blessings to all.
    Chandi and Joel Holliman

  3. Hi Barbara:

    Your photos of the Ananda Village events and people are a gift from God. If I thanked you a thousand times it wouldn’t be enough. (I write these words in the midst of sharing a few of them, in various ways, with other truth thirsty souls.)

    In Master’s Love, Lorne

  4. Dear Barbara,
    Thank you for these wonderful photos. It is really great to see such joy emanating from all the people that were there.
    I feel we are all blessed beyond imagination to have such a great Guru as Yoganandaji and also such a great example of discipleship in Swamiji.

    Aum Guru
