Sunday Service @ Ananda Dallas Meditation & Yoga Center | Addison | Texas | United States

During the month of January 2019, we welcome our friend and minister, Darshan Lotichius, to Ananda Dallas for an extended visit. He will be leading service during his stay and we invite you to join us in these special mornings.  more about events with Darshan

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.

Darshan Lotichius

About Darshan Lotichius

Darshan is a long time friend and active member of our Ananda Dallas family. This year marks his fourth annual visit to Dallas to teach and share inspiration. Jan Lotichius was born in Holland, in 1960. In 1985 he met Swami Kriyananda in Italy who gave him the spiritual name Darshan and since then, as a member of Ananda Sangha, the spiritual movement founded by Kriyananda, and as an active practitioner of the meditation techniques brought to the West by the great Master from India, Paramhansa Yogananda, Darshan has been experimenting with integrated ways of applying spirituality to every field of social life. In 1992 he founded the Ananda Rome center which he co-directed for several years. Darshan has graduated in Italian and French literature at the Amsterdam and Rome universities and in music and violin at the Bari conservatory. He is a creative writer and choir director. In the late eighties he read Kriyananda’s book Education for Life and since then he has tried to integrate this approach to child education in his many actitivities with children, both as a teacher and a father. Darshan is a founding member of the Living Wisdom School Assisi which he co-directed for three years. He has conducted many summer camps at the Ananda Assisi community and is currently expanding his activities to Holland and America.
