- I can’t tell you how good it is to be living here in a spiritual community of Ananda Village. I would have never understood what it is like, when living in the city all my life. Imagine going camping in the woods with your family for a weekend. Except, we’re living here all year, every year. And we’re not together because we happened to land in the same neighborhood or be born in the same family; our different journeys brought us here together because we share the same ideals, of plain living and high thinking, and above all have the love of the same ray of divine light in our hearts. Awwww, Thank you Swamiji, forever, and forever!
