In Honor of Its 70th Anniversary on December 1st
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.
“Master,” inquired a disciple, “what purpose does evil serve in God’s creation? Surely the Lord is a God of goodness and love. Is it possible that, as certain modern writers claim, He doesn’t know evil?”
Sri Yogananda chuckled. “God would have to be very stupid not to know evil!...
One of the most inspiring characteristics of Swami Kriyananda was his ability to be perfectly holy and perfectly appropriate in every situation he found himself in—whether he was giving a lecture in front of two thousand people, or talking to the clerk of a randomly-picked street shop. The result was always the same: the other party left the encounter inspired and energized.
