Spiritual Benefits of Giving
Video with Swami Kriyananda, 2 minutes:

“In his letters to Rajarshi Janakananda, Yogananda’s foremost disciple and self-made millionaire, he said, ‘By giving to this work, you have spiritually flourished, where others have failed.’”

How Your Donations Are Used

Ananda provides you with the techniques and inspiration to help achieve inner peace and self-realization, through these ministries:

Healing Prayer Ministry

Thou art in all Thy children.

Manifest Thy healing presence

Kriya Yoga Training and Support

Kriya Yoga is a jet airplane route to God.

—Paramhansa Yogananda

Ananda prepares devotees for initiation into Kriya Yoga, offers ongoing support after the initiation, and promotes the benefits of regular Kriya Yoga practice. In 2011 we created a Kriya Ministry to provide this support to devotees throughout Southern California.

Ananda Meditation Groups

Meditating together increases the degree of Self-realization in each member of the group by the law of invisible vibratory exchange of spiritual magnetism.

—Paramhansa Yogananda

Ananda has 12 meditation groups in Southern California. Members of the meditation groups receive ongoing support and guidance through correspondence, counseling, and visits by Ananda ministers.
