Spiritual practice doesn’t end when one leaves the silence of the church, temple, or meditation room. At Ananda, no separation exists between spiritual priorities and the practical demands of everyday life. Rightly understood, every situation, no matter how ordinary or how difficult, is another opportunity for offering devotion and a spirit of service to God. –Swami Kriyananda
Sunday service at Ananda is inspired by the ancient yogic tradition of the East, including readings from the Bhagavad Gita, with the original spiritual teachings of Christ.
Join us once a month for Sunday service in Berkeley. Our Sunday service starts at 9:30 am with a 30-minute meditation followed by chanting, spiritual readings, an inspirational talk drawn from the teachings of Yogananda. We finish with a unique blessing ceremony called the Festival of Light, and send out our hearts and prayers to the world.
May Thy love shine forever on the sanctuary of my devotion, and may I be able to awaken Thy love in all hearts. –Paramhansa Yogananda
