I see many positive changes in my life since I began making contributions. It opened up multifolds areas of opportunities at work, and above all, peace, happiness and contentment in my life. It has helped me unlock and unleash my true potential and destiny with greater Joy…
– Devotee, Mumbai

To me “tithing” is the placing of your trust on GOD rather than money. Initially I started this as an inspiration to help my Gurus’ work, but as I began to experience so many positive effects, I continued with the practice. It has greatly helped me to reduce my dependency on money. I am now much happier and content in what ever I receive as income. I also started getting monetory benefits from unexpected avenues. My income increased manyfolds, which I beleive is all the grace of the Gurus.
– RR , Mumbai

Teachings of Shri Paramhansa Yogananda have touched & transformed every aspect of my life, asking nothing in return except that we remain our own best friend. So it was with deep gratitude that I started donating and then tithing. At first it was a form of Energy Exchange, but now it is more about joyfully participating in the flow of Energy & Grace from the Masters to this World. The best thing I have received is Joy of being part of this great flow of benediction to this world.
– AT , Mumbai

Inspiration for Tithing has come from the way Ananda has transformed my life positively. How could I not give anything back to this movement and do my bit to ensure that it reaches countless other.I have received back far more than what my earlier worldly ambitions could ever provide for, and even that is an understatement. I am sharing this only to provide the right inspiration for tithing, please do not however take to it with a “transactional attitude” as it will defeat the purpose!
– MK , Mumbai

Ananda’s teachings changed my life forever. With the Joy I felt here, there came the deep inspiration to support the work that has the potential to enrich so many lives. As I started serving more and more, through monetary and non-monetary seva, it filled me with an expansive feeling and immense inner happiness. After a while it no longer felt like a contribution, it felt like a partnership with our Gurus and Swamiji, and I have never looked back since…
