Dear Friend,

“Circumstances,” Paramhansa Yogananda stated, “are always neutral.” They appear positive or negative according to how we perceive them. Living in challenging times can be a catalyst for tremendous spiritual growth. Claim your happiness! Right now, you have an opportunity to transform your challenges into blessings. Ananda is here to support your transformation.

Thousands of truth seekers are reaching out to Ananda for inspiration and life-changing tools:

  • Daily meditations via online offerings and the Ananda Meditation App
  • Interactive satsangs (fellowship), support through our virtual community and one-on-one sessions with teachers and ministers
  • Livestream and recorded inspirational talks and events on Facebook, YouTube, Radio Ananda, podcasts and Ananda.org
  • Classes, training, personal retreat and certification programs offered by The Expanding Light Retreat and Ananda Meditation Retreat
  • Creative arts: singing, music, chanting, kirtan, and choir
  • The Path of Kriya Yoga: support for those seeking meditation techniques and advanced studies

These timeless teachings are practical, not theoretical.  As you apply them they will nurture your transformation and bring you greater joy. 

Your financial support of the 2022 Ananda Worldwide Appeal will help make Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda’s teachings available to all who seek to change and uplift their lives.

In Divine friendship and gratitude,

Mai Lee

on behalf of all those serving at Ananda Outreach Mininstries

Testimonials From Grateful Friends

“Every day I feel myself becoming a better person as Ananda helps me to clean out delusion from the garden of my heart and helps me plant seeds of love, calmness, joy and bliss instead.” JK, Sweden 

“Master has reminded us in his autobiography that “hives” are necessary for spreading the “honey” of the spiritual techniques, such as Kriya Yoga, to hungry spiritual people yearning for a more spiritual life. It is my privilege and honor to be able to partake in this endeavor.” TH, Missouri

A Message from Ananda's Spiritual Directors

In today’s uncertain world, it’s far too easy to withdraw from the problems around us and let our energy contract. But there is better option, one that Ananda Outreach Ministries are dynamically offering to the world.

We can choose to expand our joy and uplift everyone around us. As
Swami Kriyananda once said, “Joy is the solution, not the reward.” In other words, we shouldn’t wait for circumstances to make us happy, but rather choose practices that awaken the joy within us. This is the solution to the challenges we are all facing.

We ask your help to continue and expand the services that are awakening
true joy to people throughout the world.

In divine friendship,

Nayaswami Jyotish and Nayaswami Devi
