About Us

Radio Ananda (Sanskrit for “joy”) is produced by Nalini Graeber, Clark Francisco, Jagrav Quinn and other members of Ananda Sangha, a worldwide movement based on the nonsectarian techniques of Self-realization taught by Paramhansa Yogananda (1892-1952). Yogananda has inspired many with a deep desire to know God – “the nearest of the near, the dearest of the dear.” He is well known as the author of Autobiography of a Yogi, a spiritual classic read by millions around the world.

“Gather together people of like mind in the pursuit of high ideals” — Yogananda envisioned communities where a person could live, work, and go to church all in one place. He called these communities “World Brotherhood Colonies.” More than any other disciple, Swami Kriyananda tried to fulfill his Guru’s vision of spiritual communities.  Many Ananda communities, teaching centers and meditation groups are located around the world — especially in California, Washington, Oregon, Rhode Island — as well as in India and Assisi, Italy.

Swami Kriyananda, the beloved founder of Ananda, passed away on Sunday April 21, 2013.

Kriyananda has written some 400 pieces of inspirational music, which form the core of programming on Radio Ananda. Kriyananda has also produced more than 100 books and lectured nearly continuously for more than 50 years. Excerpts from Kriyananda’s talks and other features are offered on the play on demand page, as an addition to our uplifting music stream.

Nalini, Clark, Jagrav and others who are directly involved with producing Radio Ananda, reside at Ananda Village, set on 800 beautiful acres in the Sierra foothills, near Nevada City, California.

Joy to you.

Thank you for providing such a wonderful alternative radio station. This is a great way for me to incorporate Ananda joy into my every day. I would love the addition of a guided meditation in the morning. Perhaps at 6 or 6:30 am.

The perfect solution to not feeling the responsibility to choose – so many times I’we turned Radio Ananda on to find something I wouldn’t have chosen to listen to, and yet enjoyed it immensely! Thank you for this wonderful service!

Thank you for this wonderful service. Radio Ananda is the first thing I open on my computer when I get into work, and the last thing I close before I leave. It helps us maintain a calming, uplifting environment throughout the day. What a relief - no need to change CDs; the variety and unrivaled quality offer a "hands free" experience of joy to the listener.

It is wonderful to have Swami's beautiful music and narrating voice playing in the background while I work on writing and other computer tasks. I find that listening to Radio Ananda gives me a spiritual boost that uplifts me and helps with everything I do. Thank you for providing these wonderful programs!

This is sublime. I just clued into this today. Such a variety all in one place. I can do this at home too. Since I'm not an i-pod kind of girl this seems magical. Many Blessings on Radio Ananda.
