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.
