Online with Ananda (which offers courses, live broadcasts, and the Ananda Virtual Community) has graciously made the Moksha Mandir Dedication Weekend videos available to all.

Happy Birthday Swamiji!

Swami Kriyananda
Ananda Village celebrated Swami Kriyananda’s birthday on May 19 with a 3-hour meditation at Crystal Hermitage, the spiritual heart of Ananda Village. Though the meditation was not broadcast, all were invited to join with us in spirit.

In honor of Swamiji’s birthday, Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi share their reflections on Swami as a channel of divine love and kindness, and invite us to honor him by offering that love and kindess to all.
