Welcome to the Janaka Foundation!
The Janaka Foundation is a non-profit foundation dedicated to the support of Ananda. Ananda is a worldwide work based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.

Ananda was founded in 1968 by Yogananda’s direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda, who was widely recognized during his lifetime as one of the leading spiritual teachers in the world.

Through your Planned Gift to the Janaka Foundation you are supporting the future of Ananda.
