The Ananda Meditation Retreat used their 2021 Grant from the Ananda Janaka Foundation to help with upgrading their present water system. This new water system will enable the Retreat to provide their guests with a more reliable source of good water in the years to come.

The replacement of this old system also turned out to be an historic event! This was because it required taking down the original water tank which had been put in place in 1967 when the Meditation Retreat was being built. And, the establishing of the Meditation Retreat, was also the beginning of Ananda itself.

The photos below capture this event and this particular moment in the history of the Ananda Meditation Retreat.
