Based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the great spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, Ananda is a global spiritual movement dedicated to the belief, born of experience, that everyone can rediscover their joy within and realize God in their daily lives as a tangible, loving reality.

Ananda in Houston currently meets on the first Sunday of every month in various locations for group meditation and satsang.

Our inspiration comes from our Ananda Texas Sangha House, located near Dallas, Tx and Ananda Worldwide, located near Nevada City, California. The Ananda Texas Sangha House is about a 4-hour drive from Houston and offers numerous in-person gatherings, events & workshops. Check out their calendar for a list of in-person and online offerings.

To start exploring Ananda in Houston, join us for one of our monthly gatherings. Please reach out to either contact below. We look forward to meeting you, and helping you rediscover your joy within.

All are welcome! Ananda’s primary goal is to help people achieve Self-realization, a state of consciousness that comes through shedding all outward self-definitions. On that premise, we welcome all sincere seekers, regardless of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability. We are committed to providing an inclusive, welcoming environment for everyone to pursue the search for God.
