Music and Kirtans

“Because man himself is an expression of the Creative Word, sound has the most potent and immediate effect on him, offering a way to remembrance of his divine origin.” 
— Paramhansa Yogananda

Music is an integral part of life at Ananda. You’ll hear beautiful vocal music on Sundays and in concerts here, nearly all composed by Ananda’s founder, Swami Kriyananda.

Join in the singing, yourself, during Sunday service and at Friday night kirtans. Kirtan happens on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month. Kirtan is devotional chanting. It has the power to transform and uplift us, and to open the heart, and can help us enter profound states of stillness.
