  • The Concept/Ideology

    Ananda is not only a Yoga Ashram but also a Spa which believes in imparting good health through the appropriate use of Yoga Practices. Ananda works on the guidelines of Self Realization. Self Realisation includes the knowledge that one as a human identity, his body, soul and mind are in possession of the Kingdom of God, that Gods omnipresence is your omnipresence.


    The Concept of Self Realisation

    To realize it that one is only a representative of God, that one has to take care of onself as he would take care of God - is the Self Realization which one has to achieve. As per Paramhansa Yogananda - The true basis of religion is the intuitive experience. To develop this intutive power is just like knowing power. So when you know the intution within, you know the God. Indirectly if you know God, then only you know the religion - and that is self realisation.
