Meet Our Board of Directors

 

Welcome to the Janaka Foundation!

The Janaka Foundation is a non-profit foundation dedicated to the support of Ananda Worldwide 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.

By 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
Janaka Foundation
