Ananda means joy. Ananda is a worldwide organization dedicated to helping you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and the revolutionary approach to yoga science brought by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the best-selling spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi. Yogananda brought a practical yet devotional path for those of all faiths and backgrounds. His teachings emphasize direct inner experience of the Divine, which he called “Self-realization.”
Yogananda friendship quote: “True friendship consists in being mutually useful in offering one’s friend good cheer in distress, sympathy in sorrow, advice in trouble, and material help in times of real need.
