What is Ananda?

Ananda is a global spiritual movement based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the great spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, who showed how everyone can realize God in their daily lives as a tangible, loving reality.

Be a Warrior of Light

God’s light is within me and around me.
With the sword of faith in my hand, with the love of God in my heart,
I am a warrior of light.

I join my brothers and sisters everywhere to overcome fear with faith,
hatred with love, and disease with health.
We all are warriors of light.
We fill the world with God’s light.

Bookstudy: In Divine Friendship

Imagine someone who never judges, who loves you despite your faults, who sees you in terms of your highest spiritual potential, and is totally committed to helping you realize that potential. Imagine someone who gives you strength and under-standing, seeking nothing in return, who offers, but never imposes, his views. Imagine someone who is always forgiving, respectful, and loving, even under the most adverse circumstances.

This begins to describe Swami Kriyananda, as seen through the letters in this book.
Mondays at 5 pm. All are welcome. Free of charge.
