Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi are spiritual directors of Ananda Sangha Worldwide.
Ananda, which means divine joy or bliss, is a spiritual organization dedicated to sharing the heart of Paramhansa Yogananda. Paramhansa Yogananda is author of one of the best-selling spiritual classics, Autobiography of a Yogi. Ananda was founded in 1968 by a direct disciple of Yoganandaji, Swami Kriyananda. Swami Kriyananda dedicated his life to sharing his Guru’s teachings and manifesting Yoganandaji’s vision of World Brotherhood Colonies, the spiritual communities of Ananda. Swami Kriyananda’s first community in Nevada City, called Ananda Village, is one of the most successful intentional communities in the world.
