Jyotish and Devi have updated the affirmation. Use it with faith and power.
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.

We all are warriors of light.
We fill the world with God’s light.

In the Land Beyond My Dreams
This virtual kirtan of a chant by Paramhansa Yogananda features devotee musicians from Ananda. The musicians traded tracks with each other from lockdown over the last two months, videoing themselves recording, and sharing inspiration and satsang through this divine music. Panduranga, at Ananda Village mixed and mastered the combined tracks, Baraquiel in Pune synced and edited the video and audio tracks, and Ishani in Delhi finished the editing and provided mystical visuals to enhance the experience. Enjoy!
A Yogi Master in the West
Paramhansa Yogananda’s arrival in Boston in 1920 marked the beginning of a new wave of spiritual consciousness in America and throughout the world. Author of the spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, the life changing wisdom of his teachings touched countless souls across the country. “Simple living and high thinking,” he said, “lead to the greatest happiness.” And further, he declared, “Kriya Yoga is the jet airplane route to God.” 100 years later we see the spiritual principles of yoga and Self-Realization spreading across the planet and awakening the yearning for God in hearts everywhere.
I know God can be realized through meditation, by intuitional perception, but not through the restless mind.
