Ananda Worldwide

Support for your spiritual journey

If you are visiting this site and you live far from the Sacramento area, perhaps you can find inspiration and spiritual support closer to your home. There may be an Ananda center close to you. If not (or even if so), you are invited to attend our weekly worship services from your living room, online. The internet has brought seekers closer together than we dreamed possible in 1968, when Ananda first began. It is our joy and our privilege to serve you in this way.
