Sunday Service
Feb 18 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Sunday Service @ Ananda Dallas Meditation & Yoga Center | Addison | Texas | United States

The Sunday worship service at Ananda is inspired by the meditation tradition of the East and the ancient teachings of mystical Christianity, with inspirational readings from both the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita. Service includes music, group chanting and meditation, an inspirational talk drawn from the writings of Paramhansa Yogananda, and a unique blessing ceremony called the Festival of Light.

Before service begins at 10 am, you are welcome to a period of silent meditation from 9 to 9:45 am. Those who wish can also participate in a ceremony of individual prayer for freedom or clarity about a personal challenge, called the Purification Ceremony. You may offer that prayer at the altar.

Our hearts and our sanctuary are open to people of all faiths, races, orientations, truth-seekers, people exploring meditation for the first time, and anyone who seeks a deeper understanding of the meaning and purpose of life.

After Service, you are invited to meet the ministers and others in the congregation over snacks in the foyer.

Gratitude Ceremony for Seva Yogis
Feb 24 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Gratitude Ceremony for Seva Yogis @ Ananda Dallas Meditation Center | Addison | Texas | United States

Seva” is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment. In ancient India seva was believed to help one’s spiritual growth.

A true Seva Yogi needs no recognition for service. Many have served selflessly to make the center a place for many to come and be nourished by the teachings of this path. The Gratitude ceremony recognizes all those who have given selflessly. The ceremony is based on ancient Indian tradition.

We will start with a fire ceremony, followed by readings on service and meditation. The ceremony will recognize each person who has served.

Come celebrate this ancient tradition with all the Seva Yogis.
