For garden updates, visit Crystal Hermitage’s new website:

Crystal Hermitage is the spiritual heart of Ananda Village and the home of Swami Kriyananda, Ananda’s founder. Beautiful terraced gardens, expansive vistas, and peace of mind await all those who visit Crystal Hermitage. Find solitude in our lovely Chapel which was inspired by the Porziuncola of Saint Francis, or in Shrine of the Masters, which houses relics of our gurus and other great saints of Self-realization. Shop in our uplifting gift shop for friends or yourself. Or just enjoy some time in the Garden.

The Hermitage offers venues for weddings, receptions, workshops, and community events. Once a year we have a “Springtime at Ananda” Open House, to share over 10,000 tulips with guests from the surrounding area.
