*Masks are optional for events inside the temple. Services are also live-streamed to our Ananda Portland YouTube channel.
Nayaswamis Dharmadas and Nirmala, from Ananda Sacramento, will be giving service today. They have come to Portland for a Kriya initiation ceremony and we are blessed to have them with us for the weekend.
Sundays are a unique opportunity at Ananda. Each week we get together, in person and online, to share in the path of Self-Realization as brought by Paramhansa Yogananda.
These teachings are non-sectarian and all are welcome.
Service includes a fire ceremony and purification ritual, chanting and brief meditation, readings from the Bible and Bhagavad-Gita, affirmations, music, inspiration talks from our ministers, a spiritual ritual called The Festival of Light, and the opportunity for satsang (fellowship with other truth seekers).
Yogananda gave us many tools and techniques to use for our spiritual growth. At Sunday service, we are able to have a small experience of just about all of them. We are also able to be in the vibration of a sacred space with others who are committed to high-mindedness and self-expansion.
We would love to meet you and support you in your spiritual search. Please don’t hesitate to call us if you have questions. 503-626-3403
*We are not able to offer Sunday School for children at this time. Children are welcome, however, the service includes some quiet meditation and usually lasts about 1.5 hours, which can be a challenge for young children.
Ananda exists because of the generous support of truth seekers around the world. If you watch our services online, you can give a donation on our website HERE.
