Ananda Sangha Mumbai is part of a global spiritual movement called Ananda Sangha Worldwide. Founded in 1969 by Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of the great Indian Master Paramhansa Yogananda, Ananda is committed to helping people live in Joy.
Based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, Ananda offers not just teachings and techniques, but love, friendship and support on the Path to Self-realization. The wisdom of our line of Gurus embrace every aspect of the human experience showing us how we can spiritualize each and every moment. From peace, calmness and stress-free living to the lofty peaks of Liberation and Moksha, the teachings of Kriya Yoga are for everyone.
Ananda is for Everyone
The cornerstones of Ananda’s teachings are meditation and yoga. Ananda is not a religion, and yet it represents the heart and soul of all true religions. Yogananda’s teachings are universal. They embrace the principles and truths at the core of Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism and every other faith that is founded on the love of God and the ideal of living a dharmic life. Ananda, which means joy, is perfectly named for what it seeks to impart: the inner bliss of divine communion.
We welcome sincere seekers of all religions, nationalities, gender, and race. Ananda is committed to offering a welcoming and embracing environment for all who seek the bliss of God-contact.
“Self-realization is the knowing in all parts of body, mind, and soul that you are now in possession of the kingdom of God; that you do not have to pray that it come to you: that God’s omnipresence is your omnipresence; and that all that you need to do is improve your knowing.”
