About Us

Clarity Magazine is part of Ananda Sangha Worldwide, a global movement founded in 1968 by Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, to disseminate Yogananda’s teachings. Today Ananda Sangha Worldwide includes eight communities and ashrams in the United States, Europe, and India and over 100 meditation groups throughout the world.

Clarity Magazine is dedicated to showing how everyone can experience God in their daily lives as a tangible, loving presence, and how all life experiences can become opportunities for spiritual growth. As Swami Kriyananda writes:

Spiritual practice doesn’t end when one leaves the silence of the church, temple, or meditation room. At Ananda, no separation exists between spiritual priorities and the practical demands of everyday life. Rightly understood, every situation, no matter how ordinary or how difficult, is another opportunity for offering devotion and a spirit of service to God.

Paramhansa Yogananda’s teachings encompass the truths that underlie all great religions, East and West, with an emphasis on the ancient, scientific practice of Raja Yoga from India and the original, mystic teachings of Jesus Christ.
