Join us for an evening of chanting, meditation and renewal of discipleship vows. Celebrating the mahasamadhi of a great avatar is an opportunity to rejoice in the freedom of the soul and to bow in gratitude at the master’s feet for coming and leading us all to our home in eternal bliss.
“Mahasamadhi” refers to the conscious exit of an avatar from the earthly body. For those who are disciples, consciously renewing the vow of discipleship is a wonderful tradition that draws us closer to our guru.

This planet has lost its aspirational vision amidst greed and selfishness, a fall predicted by Paramhansa Yogananda to lead us into a new higher age.
Yogananda’s solution: “a community exemplifying world brotherhood is empowered to send inspiring vibrations far beyond its locale.” ~Autobiography of a Yogi, 1stEdition, last page
Finding Happiness movie is the story of the inward happiness to be found by living these changes in communities around the world.

Join with other spiritual souls as we share the healing power and blessing of kirtan. Kirtan is sacred chanting, which carries the power to transform and uplift the soul & open the heart. No experience necessary.
We will be joined by our friends from Ananda Village, Brahmacharya Jitendra and Brahmacharya Prashad.
About Brahmacharya Prashad
Brahmachari Prashad is a disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda and a member of the monastery at Ananda Village. He serves at Ananda Sangha Worldwide maintaining and supporting its diverse set of websites. A lifelong musician, he has also found a calling in singing, playing and sharing Swami Kriyananda’s music. He has felt the deeply transforming power of Kriyananda’s music in his own spiritual life and offers that insight when sharing with others. He has a sensitive awareness of the divine inspiration behind the music and how it can serve as an instrument of inner awakening.
~Paramhansa Yogananda stated that, “chanting is half the battle on the spiritual path”.

The Dallas Ananda group has a long and fruitful history of service, devotion and attunement to Master’s teachings through Ananda’s spiritual work. Ananda worldwide is experiencing so much “growth joy” in so many directions at this time that it isn’t easy to stay focused and remain centered!
Hriman and his wife Padma have served at Ananda Seattle for twenty-five years, shepherding a small meditation center in rented quarters to six “campus” locations in the greater Seattle area: a Temple of Light and Yoga Hall; residential apartment community (32 units); Living Wisdom School and a supporting Thrift Store; Ananda Farm on Camano Island (1-hour north); and its long standing and successful East West Bookshop in Seattle.
Among the topics we might wish to cover include:
• Deepening our bonds as devotees and gurubhais, and, as a Sangha Community
• Going to the well of inspiration from Ananda Village, with Jyotish & Devi, and others
• Broadening local financial support for the center and contributing to Ananda worldwide
• Importance of creative, harmonious service opportunities for local Ananda members
• Deepening our sadhana and our attunement to Master, and, Master through Swami Kriyananda
• Finding the balance between deepening personal discipleship and expressing the teachings outwardly in universal and welcoming ways that are inclusive and not sectarian.
• The relevance of Self-realization & kriya to the evolution of society: BE THE CHANGE!
• Future directions for Ananda Dallas.
Nayaswami Maria will lead this evening of chanting, helping your heart to open and soar in devotion and love. She is one of Ananda’s sweetest chanters, awakening your natural inclinations of divinity. A very special opportunity for all of us to share this powerful practice with a great devotee who shines with God’s light. Don’t miss it!
