The ANANDA MUSIC ORAL HISTORY VIDEOS capture the essence of living and sharing the music of Ananda. Listen to longtime devotee musicians share their stories and remembrances of spiritual lessons learned from working on the songs and chants of Swami Kriyananda and Paramhansa Yogananda.
Jeannie Tschantz began working with Swami Kriyananda's music soon after she moved to Ananda Village in 1978. She has been a core member of Ananda’s music team ever since, specializing in teaching people how to infuse God's energy and consciousness into their music, voice, and chanting. Serving many areas of the music at Ananda, she has been choir director, music minister, harpist, chanter and teacher.
"Swami said, 'Don’t talk about how wonderful the music is, talk about how it can lift people’s consciousness as they are listening to it or singing it.'" "We were a ministry and we were trying to bless people and instruct them spiritually through the words and vibration of the songs."
