The Spiritual Needs of Our Times - Based on Paramhansa Yogananda's Aims & Ideals

“To love those that love you is easy. To love those that love you not is not so simple. If you want to change anyone, set a better example. Show more kindness, more understanding, more love. That has a sure effect. To those who are not kind, show kindness. To those who are mean, show bigness of heart.”

Paramhansa Yogananda

    NEW BOOK! Touch of Divine Wisdom

    Congratulations, Nayaswami Jyotish and Nayaswami Devi!

    Spiritual Renewal Week will launch the latest book by the Ananda Spiritual Directors, the newly published Touch of Divine Wisdom. Renowned teachers, ministers, and writers, they have written over 500 inspiring weekly blogs, each one filled with interesting stories, spiritual advice, and practical application of yogic truths.

    There will be 2 book signing sessions and a special book purchase price during the week.

    Spiritual Renewal Week fills my heart – the talks, the music, connecting with far-flung friends…just being in the vibe of Ananda Village. And the food! SRW gets better and better every year. So many hands creating such a lovely miracle, shared with all who come.
