A bit of news we have today. We’re having a Bakeless Bake Sale for the month of May!
The Ananda Fundraising Committee is having a Bakeless Bake Sale Fundraising event through the month of May. We are asking for YOUR support for a SUCCESSFUL BAKELESS BAKE SALE!
These busy days, who has the time to bake Pies, cookies, or even a cake? Just donate the money that it would take to bake a dozen cookies or a beautiful cake or donate the money it takes to buy a dozen cupcakes or maybe a pie.
We know you can help us if you will but try. Without fuss or bother, you’ve done your part. We hope you’ll give with a willing heart.
FUNDRAISING GOAL – $15,000
Fundraiser to convert the Temple kitchen into a Commercial kitchen!
Your donation will help us convert the Temple Kitchen into a Commercial Kitchen were we can bake real food and sell it to anyone without special permits required by the county!
May 19th; 7 - 8:30 pmOn Swamis’s birthday evening, May 19, we will celebrate his life with music, a flower ceremony, and a very special visit by Sri Karthikeyanji, who is a sincere and accomplished speaker and advocate for yoga. He will undoubtedly tell fascinating stories about his years of friendship with Swami.
We expect the church to be packed for this, so come early!

Tuesday May 26th, 7-8:30 pmWe are honored to have as guests, Somnath and Sarita Ghosh—relatives of Parmahansa Yogananda—on this very special evening. They are coming all the way from Kolkata (Calcutta) India to visit Ananda Village for the Moksha Mandir Dedication, and have agreed to come and visit us here in the Ananda Sacramento temple.
For those who are familiar with The Autobiography of a Yogi, Somnath’s father was Harekrishna Ghosh, Master’s nephew. Somnath and his wife, Sarita, live in Master’s boyhood home at 4 Gurpar Road.
You won’t want to miss this amazing, probably once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear the Ghoshs tell wonderful, very personal stories about Master in this evening of chanting and reminiscing. They are living examples of the charisma and dedication to Divine Mother demonstrated so beautifully by Yogananda and his family.
June 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmCome hear all about our ministers’ adventures in Russia. This is a country where—as recently as the 1980’s—it was a crime to teach yoga, punishable by imprisonment in Siberia.
Having returning from their travels, the Dharmadas and Nirmala will share experiences about the very sincere devotees in this distant country and answer any questions you might have.

with Gourmet Dinner & Dessert Buffet treats for sale
Come experience the fabulously entertaining spectacle of Ananda's Sacramento Players performing a P.G. Wodehouse tale entitled "Honeysuckle Cottage". Directed by Supriya, this humorous reader's theater promises to keep you on the edge of your seat! Dinner treats and dessert delights will be for sale before the show, during the intermission, and after the show, with tables and chairs set up so that you can get the perfect view of the play while you enjoy a scrumptious repast.
All proceeds go to help with the church kitchen re-model.
In this story, "the hardboiled mystery novelist, James Rodman, receives an inheritance from his aunt, a romance novelist, along with the condition that he stay for six months in Honeysuckle Cottage, where she wrote 'nine million one hundred and forty thousand words of glutinous sentimentality'. James moves to the cottage to write in peace, but he soon finds a damsel in distress intruding into his writing. A confirmed bachelor, he struggles against this unwelcome fate… and has to rely on a mixed breed dog."
P.G. Wodehouse (1881 - 1975) was an English humorist, described in a Wall Street Journal article as "the finest writer of comic fiction in the English language." His plays were favorites of Swami and oft-presented at various Ananda Centers.
This should be a simply marvelous evening for us to enjoy.
