Meditation, Yoga, Bringing Spirit to Life
The Ananda Meditation Temple is a sanctuary of inner peace, where “yoga” comes “to life!”

- Meditation: Learn it, teach it.
- Yoga: Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga and Kriya Yoga. Find the inner dimension of yoga.

If you are one who steps apart from the crowd, who cherishes truth and high ideals and quiet time for the more important things of life, we think you’ll feel right at home here, at Ananda. Families, couples, singles–all are welcome!
Come and find like-minded people. Most of all come and find inner joy!
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.
