Simplicity, but not primitivism
World compassion, not world rejection
Practicality, not utopianism
Service, not self-indulgence
Love of God, not materialism
Kindness, respect, and an open heart to all”

Live in Security

‘Unshaken amidst the crash of breaking worlds.’

When we feel rooted and secure in ourselves our sense of belonging blossoms. Who we truly are shines forth as we share our inner strength and practicality with others. In feeling nurtured and encouraged, our hearts become grounded in an expansive love that we, in turn, can pass on to all beings.

Live with Fluidity

‘I open to the flow of God’s Life within me.’

Trusting in the goodness of Life transforms our experience, and that of those around us. As we relax and accept, moving through the world with faith and flexibility, we see the wondrous beauty and creativity in the world, and within ourselves. We offer our energy in service to this grace through our original self-expression.

Live with Inner Strength

‘I joyfully manifest the power of God.’

Our inner spiritual warrior awakens and we dance fearlessly with the Divine, joyfully greeting and embracing all that Life has to offer us. We move with strength and courage through the world. Our fiery self-control enables us to choose happiness, always, and to share it. Our inner Light shines bright!

Live in Expansion

‘I am the sky.’

Our awareness expands as our consciousness elevates. We show up in the world with calm inner certainty and create harmony in our relationships with all beings, expressing the pure Light of who we are. Maintaining deep and joy-affirming connections with soul-friends everywhere is natural and energising as we become ever-more a channel of peace.

Live with Clarity

‘I awake in Thy Light!’

Living in the Light becomes our way; every step is guided by grace and Truth our polestar: our consciousness is attuned to and anchored in the Divine. Living in a state of Self-offering, that which we are shines brighter as we accept Life completely and begin to awaken to the Truth that we are One with all.

Live in Union

‘Centre everywhere, circumference nowhere.’

Joyful living is natural as we transcend our limitations and realise the Divine birthright the Masters and great ones promise us! Dharmic (righteous) living is our way; each moment an opportunity to serve the Light and share our bliss. Our soul-expression manifests without limitations as we experience the unity of world brotherhood – every soul of every race, culture and religion free to be themselves.

Ananda's Projects

Ananda’s mission is to consciously manifest a new and better world, not only through our commitment as individuals to our inner-work, but also through our expansive and uplifting projects which will shape a new tomorrow!

At this moment in time, collectively we all have a special opportunity: to actively contribute, each one of us, to the building of a new world; to create a global community, a spiritual family who, although spread far and wide geographically, is united completely in heart and soul.

Here are the ways in which we are manifesting this vision outwardly and making it a reality!
