Join Ananda for a special service on the birthday of Paramhansa Yogananda, January 5th, 2020:

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Paramhansa Yogananda’s arrival to the United States of America. Yogananda has been called, “The Father of Yoga to the West.” His book, *Autobiography of a Yogi,* sparked a spiritual revolution around the world, and has inspired millions.

Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi are dynamic emissaries of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the well-known spiritual classic, *Autobiography of a Yogi.* As Global Peace Ambassadors and Spiritual Directors of Ananda Sangha Worldwide, the organization founded by Kriyananda, they serve as living examples of spirituality and loving friendship. After serving closely with Kriyananda for nearly fifty years, Jyotish and Devi continue to travel the world, sharing the revolutionary path of Self-realization—aiding in peace and harmony for all.
