Donations to Ananda

“… without your assistance, the work cannot go on… All of you who wish to offer much-needed help, now or in the future, I bless.” 
— Paramhansa Yogananda

Donations from people like you make Ananda possible. If you have been touched by what you have seen and heard here, please help us continue to inspire and bring hope to people around the world through our online talks. Your gift also helps support Ananda as a physical center for spiritual awakening, serving seekers throughout the San Francisco Bay area. 

Ananda Sangha of Palo Alto is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All contributions are tax deductible

Thanks from our website fans around the world

“Thank you for all of Asha’s inspiring talks available on your website. She has an incredible ability to explain the teachings so clearly — it’s really a joy to listen to her. I love to listen to her Sunday services and I’m now listening over and over again the new audio classes online. God bless you.”
—Gregor L., computer science professor, Slovenia

“I listen to these classes virtually everyday while commuting to work. They are beyond just interest — they are a constant reminder of where I want my consciousness to be.”
—Otavio Pascarelli, Brazil

“Here is a donation and thank you for your fine internet ministry — a blessing to all.”
—K. Sherman, research scientist, Seattle, WA

“I love the Letters From Asha. I am amazed at some of the down-to-earth questions, and at how great you are at bringing those issues into a spiritual context. You so easily move people to the real heart of things.”
—W. Ollson, physicist (retired), Fremont, CA

“I don’t think the topic of the webinar matters. Whenever Asha speaks, she speaks directly to something going on in my life, or a piece of information I thought I already ‘knew’, clicks on a deeper level. I am healthier in my spiritual perspective. Thank you so much!”
—D. Barrett

“Thank you! I feel so blessed to be able to receive your teachings, and simple, yet profound understanding of so many spiritual concepts. Tremendously helpful & inspiring.”
—P. Freebern
