Ananda Palo Alto — A Place of Awakening
November 8, 2017
Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Ananda Palo Alto is a center for meditation, yoga, and spiritual community. The teachings at Ananda were brought to the West by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi. His direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda, founded Ananda in 1968 as the fulfillment of Yogananda's dream of spiritual communities — a place where people could live, work and serve together in a spiritually supportive environment. Today, Ananda communities and teaching centers can be found throughout the world, including Ananda in Palo Alto — the largest center for the teachings of Yogananda in the San Francisco Bay Area.
