Thank You for visiting us at Ananda Rhode Island
Ananda invites you to experience the joy of your own true nature. Discover an expanded sense of harmony, love and peace in your life through ancient and effective techniques of Meditation, Kriya Yoga, spiritually oriented Hatha Yoga, Community and Friendship. Our offerings are based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, who showed how everyone can realize the Divine in their daily lives as a tangible, loving reality. Yogananda has said that God is center everywhere, circumference nowhere. We take that statement seriously…our physical Center is in Hopkinton, RI, and from there we reach out into the wider community with meditations, kirtans and other programs throughout the state. Visit us and discover that Joy is Within You!
Throughout Ananda, we have started using Yogananda’s “Peace and Harmony Prayer” at the end of each meditation or Sunday service. If collectively we act as a great lens to focus peace and harmony, it will illuminate this earth and drive out the shadows. Please join us. Be a channel of God’s Light. Pray the above prayer daily – saying the first line 10 times, and the second line 3 times. Peace and Joy to you!
