“Self-realization is the knowing in all parts of body, mind, and soul that you are now in possession of the kingdom of God; that you do not have to pray that it come to you: that God’s omnipresence is your omnipresence; and that all that you need to do is improve your knowing.”

Ananda Sangha Ahmedabad is part of a global spiritual movement called Ananda Sangha Worldwide. Founded in 1969 by Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of the great Indian Master Paramhansa Yogananda, Ananda is committed to helping people live in Joy.

Based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, Ananda offers not just teachings and techniques, but love, friendship and support on the Path to Self-realization. The wisdom of our line of Gurus embrace every aspect of the human experience showing us how we can spiritualize each and every moment. From peace, calmness and stress-free living to the lofty peaks of Liberation and Moksha, the teachings of Kriya Yoga are for everyone.

Ananda is for Everyone

The cornerstones of Ananda’s teachings are meditation and yoga. Ananda is not a religion, and yet it represents the heart and soul of all true religions. Yogananda’s teachings are universal. They embrace the principles and truths at the core of Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism and every other faith that is founded on the love of God and the ideal of living a dharmic life. Ananda, which means joy, is perfectly named for what it seeks to impart: the inner bliss of divine communion.

We welcome sincere seekers of all religions, nationalities, gender, and race. Ananda is committed to offering a welcoming and embracing environment for all who seek the bliss of God-contact.

  • I was fortunate to read the Autobiography of a Yogi at a very young age. I was very inspired by Yoganandaji’s teachings and wanted to learn Kriya Yoga since then. My experience with Ananda is that it welcomes every spiritual seeker warmly and guides them to God and Gurus.

  • Ananda has been a smooth transition for me over a period of this 1.5 years from a disbalanced individual to the one aspiring and striving to being more balanced and an integrated being. Meditating each day has only made me calmer by the day helping me to be the best version of myself with my family and loved ones. Devotion and surrender to the divine is a powerful by product of meditation.

  • I feel privileged to be part of Ananda. Prior to Ananda, i was not novice to meditation as i was trying to be on the spiritual path for the last 10 years. I found Ananda truly believed in encouraging people after giving meditation to stay on this path and of ways to help us on being on this path. Ananda means family to me now.

  • My affiliation to Ananda has not only helped me to learn mediation, but has also showed me the way to my spiritual journey. Meditation has helped me immensely. I have experienced a big change in my emotions, my thinking and my behaviour. It has also helped me develop a routine which now I follow regularly. I can certainly say that Ananda has made me realise what true Joy, Peace and Bliss is.
