Let’s celebrate together the joy and peace of Inner Christmas

Paramhansa Yogananda calls Christmas a time of “spiritual grandeur.” He encourages us to find a balance between the Christmas our soul longs for, and social celebrations with friends and family. As a spiritual family we want to satisfy the longings of the soul first and then bring that deeper dimension of peace to our loved ones.

During this holy season we want to share special inspirations of Christ and the Masters with you: writings, blogs, videos and, most importantly, meditations. Together let us make the effort to commune with the omnipresent Christ consciousness and offer ourselves as channels of His light that has the power to unite us all!


Welcome to the calendar of this year’s holiday season. We wish you truly holy-days and joyful moments in our company and with your loved ones.

As this year’s theme is union, our calendar includes the activities of the Ananda Sangha Europe with all the free online satsangs and events on Ananda LIVE to support our spiritual family wherever they are and also the different courses and events at the Retreat Center at Ananda Assisi where you can spent this festive season with us.

Smouldering joy, oft puffed by meditation, blinding my tearful eyes, burst into immortal flames of bliss, consumed my tears, my frame, my all.
