Ananda Sangha, founded by Swami Kriyananda, is a worldwide spiritual movement. Even more, it is a way of life. Based on the teachings of the great Indian master Paramhansa Yogananda, it embraces every aspect of human endeavor, from the search for happiness in daily living to the ultimate bliss of Self-Realisation.
In 2013, shortly before Swami Kriyanandaji left his body, he gave a Dnd-teaching2lecture in Chennai at the Music Academy where 2000 people attended and 1000 had to be turned away at the doors. Swamiji then asked Nayaswamis Dharmarajan & Dharmini to come to Chennai and become the spiritual directors of a new Ananda yoga and meditation centre, which started in June of 2013. Ananda Chennai is one of many Ananda Yoga and Meditation centres established throughout India.
