Who Are We?
Ananda Sangha is not an organization – but a “fellowship” of people who are dedicated to realizing higher consciousness and to helping humanity evolve spiritually through the teachings of Self-realization.
Paramhansa Yogananda is the author of the famous spiritual classic "Autobiography of a Yogi". A blazing spiritual light to millions of truth-seekers across the globe, Yogananda’s message of the unity of all religions and the path of Kriya yoga continues to be heard and appreciated by those who are keen to realise truth in their modern-day lives, regardless of age, religion or ethnicity.
Swami Kriyananda was the founder of Ananda Sangha and a direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda. Having met Yogananda at the age of 22, he dedicated his life from that point onward to the spreading of his Guru’s message of God-Realization. As a Divine Friend he inspired many on the search for Truth by his deep devotion and kindness.
