Meet Our Board of Directors

 

Welcome to the Janaka Foundation!

The Janaka Foundation is a non-profit foundation dedicated to the support of Ananda through Estate Gift Planning.

Ananda is a global movement based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, who showed how everyone can realize God in their daily lives as a tangible, loving reality.

Through including the Janaka Foundation in your will, trust, IRA or other estate planning, you are supporting the future of Ananda.

In divine friendship,
Parvati Hansen
Executive Director

Ananda Remembers

A Memorial Website for the Ananda Spiritual Family

Ananda Remembers is a place to remember individuals who have been part of the Ananda spiritual family. These include people who have lived in the Ananda communities, those who have been connected to one of our Centers or meditation groups, or have joined us as a member of the online Ananda virtual community.

The Ananda spiritual family also includes those whose connection with Ananda may have been more limited in nature, but who nonetheless had a deeply meaningful connection with Ananda during their lifetime. We invite you to take a look at Ananda Remembers.
