Ananda is a global movement based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, who showed how everyone can realize God in their daily lives as a tangible, loving reality.

Ananda as a movement is comprised of more than 8 spiritual communities, dozens of meditation groups and centers, and thousands of individuals committed to the path of Kriya Yoga taught by Yogananda.

Ananda Sangha Worldwide represents the outreach of Ananda’s movement beyond the borders of any single community. We are a church without walls, providing spiritual inspiration based on the heart of Yogananda’s teachings to truth-seeking souls everywhere. Our offerings include the publication of spiritual books, online classes on Yogananda’s techniques for meditation, yoga and the art of spiritual living, seasoned teachers traveling across the globe, two world-class spiritual retreats and much more.

Here are a few of the many things Ananda did in 2016 with your support:

“Those who give, even of the little that they have, they become blessed in extraordinary ways.” – Swami Kriyananda
