14-17 June, 2018
with Nayaswamis Jaya and Dhyana, co-directors of Ananda India

Go deep in this path. Simple little nibbling of prayers does not get you the intensity of God’s presence and the intensity of His bliss.”
“Untying the cord of breath which binds the soul to the body, Kriya serves to prolong life and enlarge the consciousness to infinity. The yoga method overcomes the tug of war between the mind and the matter-bound senses, and frees the devotee to reinherit his eternal kingdom.” — Paramhansa Yogananda
