Online Sunday Service at Ananda Palo Alto with Nayaswami Shanti and others…

Sunday Services at Ananda include a Purification Ceremony from 9:00am – 9:45am followed by the Festival of Light service from and 10:00-11:30. 

The inward meditation, fire, and purification ceremony offer opportunity to open your heart for purification through Divine Grace.

The service includes chanting, meditation, prayers, music, readings from both the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita, and an inspirational talk. The service concludes with the Festival of Light, a universal celebration of the path of inner communion with God and of the Divine Grace that has come to us in our age.

We invite you to join us in celebrating and sharing the universal truths taught by Paramhansa Yogananda and expressed by his direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda. Included in the Festival of Light service are many elements that uplift our consciousness and awaken our highest aspirations.

Ananda services are nonsectarian. Visit here for more details.

“During the service, I experienced a wonderful peace and stillness, such as I have only read about, and until then, felt was only attainable by the great saints. It was a tangible experience of God’s presence in my life. You have taught me how to find God within, and have been truly divine friends along the way. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.”   — J.N. Mountain View
