Ananda in Texas is in transition. A MUCH WELCOMED transition as we now have a new home as of Sept 1! Still it is going to take us some time to be fully moved in and to get our new Ananda Sangha House (as we are calling it) and surroundings spiffed up for an official “opening.”

Please note: this satsang will be livestreamed from our Austin Meditation Group which meets at the Be Well Yoga Studio. If you are Austin please join us in person! Our Dallas sangha will only be meeting online.

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.

On the second Sunday of each month we invite one of Ananda’s most prominent teachers and leaders from around the world to join us online and share with us. We still come together in person and do the first part of the satsang as our traditional Sunday service with chanting, affirmations and readings and then at 11:00am we spend the last hour online with our special guest. This week Darshan Lotichius joins us from Ananda Assisi.

While it appears that we have ample parking all around us, we are wanting to be sensitive to our neighbors who own the adjacent parking lot. We are still working on an acceptable agreement with them. Therefore we ask that you park

  • first in our driveway (only on the right side)
  • secondly on the north side of the street (but not in the grass area)
  • lastly in the three spots in front of the dumpster or the closest parking spaces to us in the parking lot next to our house.

Thank you so much for your consideration of this!
