Upcoming Highlights

Pilgrimage to Assisi, Italy

October 4-18, 2014

Join devotees from the greater Seattle Sangha in October 2014 on a pilgrimage to Italy to visit holy sites blessed by its great saints, and enjoy some of the greatest art and architecture ever created. The pilgrimage will visit Rome, Florence, La Verna and Assisi – renowned as the birthplace of St. Francis, whom Paramhansa Yogananda called “his patron saint.” While in Assisi, pilgrims will be hosted by the Ananda Assisi international community, and we will meditate together daily in the beautiful “Temple of Light.” The temple here in Ananda Washington was modeled after that beautiful temple! We will also enjoy guided tours of the great art and architecture in Rome and Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance.
