What is Ananda?
A worldwide spiritual movement to help you find joy within yourself, inspired by Paramhansa Yogananda and founded by his disciple, Swami Kriyananda.
Ananda Sangha – “fellowship of divine joy”—is a worldwide group of individuals who share the search for higher consciousness and the ideal of service to others by following the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. These teachings emphasize “Self-realisation” as direct inner experience of God. Non-sectarian, they are based on India’s timeless universal truths and offer practical solutions to the challenges of modern life.
The Path Of Kriya Yoga
Kriya Yoga Home Study Course
According to Yoganandaji, Kriya is the most effective means available to mankind today for reaching the goal of Self-realisation: union with the Divine. The techniques and practices leading up to initiation into Kriya can be learned through the four books that make up the Kriya Yoga Home Study Course.

Swami Kriyananda, a Model for Your Life
By Nayaswami Jyotish
“Let’s clean up these beds,” our enthusiastic team leader said as we surveyed the badly neglected herb garden at The Expanding Light Retreat. The lavender, rosemary, and oregano were choked with weeds and dead leaves. Many of the plants looked lifeless or had gone to seed—a sorry sight for people who love gardens.
