Sunday Satsang at Ananda is inspired by the meditation tradition of the East and the ancient teachings of mystical Christianity, with inspirational readings from both the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita. Service includes music, group chanting and meditation.
A disciple of Yogananda’s for over fifty years, Nayaswami Jaya is one of the founding members of Ananda Village. Jaya has been involved in leadership positions within Ananda from the beginning.
He is a Kriyacharya,(authorized to initiate devotees into Kriya Yoga), aLightbearer minister and currently serves as the Co-director of Ananda India. He brings to each satsang and workshop a warm presence and wealth of knowledge about these teachings applied in a practical approach for daily living.
For many years Jaya served as the general manager of Ananda Village, overseeing the development of housing and business clusters, roads, water and phone systems, and other infrastructure that supports the Village residents and guests. Later, he helped start Ananda Rhode Island on the East Coast of the U.S., and from there, it was only a short “jump” to Ananda India where he is now Co- spiritual Director!
For the past several years he has often traveled around India, providing help and advice to the leaders and devotees with their duties and spiritual growth.
