"When you are feeling joy and empathy, you can reach people where they are." — Swami Kriyananda
Ananda Community Goals
Swami Kriyananda participated in a conference on communities in Virginia with Peter Caddy who founded Findhorn and other community leaders in 1979. He returned to Ananda Village and gave this talk to residents on “Ananda Community Goals.” He describes Ananda community living as a way of life to bring about harmony and peace. This lifestyle can be an example to others.
One of the primary goals of Ananda communities is to provide an environment to inspire individuals to become centered in themselves, centered in God consciousness and to become more and more giving. Kriyananda explains that we are happier when we share with others and realize that everything we do is for God.
The Ananda communities try to reach people on all levels to give them an incentive to grow through avenues such as education, healing, and retreat programs and classes. A key to the success of the communities is that residents develop a cooperative spirit.
