Ananda is a global movement based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, who showed how everyone can realize God in their daily lives as a tangible loving reality.
Ananda was founded in 1968 by Yogananda’s direct disciple Swami Kriyananda, widely recognized as one of the world’s leading spiritual teachers. Yogananda’s teachings embrace the deep truths that underlie all the great religions. People from all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed at Ananda.
