Ananda Marga is a global socio-spiritual organization with branches in over 160 countries representing every continent.

It has a broad agenda which includes teaching yoga and meditation, performing social service, blending spirituality with art, initiating musical and meditation festivals, bridging intellectual and spiritual pursuits and introducing a new framework for world economic balance.

It combines many of the classical yoga systems within it such as yoga postures (asanas), meditation, devotional practices and selfless service activities (karma yoga). Its yoga activities comprise one aspect of a vast, multi-dimensional movement. Ananda Marga places much emphasis on social service as a means of personal transformation together with yoga, meditation, healthy diet and holistic wellness. Its worldwide network of community-based volunteers share a universal outlook and the initiative to bring about meaningful social change. The mission of Ananda Marga is self-realization (individual emancipation) and service to humanity (collective welfare): the fulfillment of the physical, mental and spiritual needs of all people. read more
