Thank you for the referral to the Ananda Village website. Their community is located near Nevada City, California and is apparently dedicated to combining "the spiritual insight of the East and the practical efficiency of the West." They appear to have about 250 permanent residents.
It is interesting to see how other groups run their communities. The Ananda group generates income by offering a retreat experience and also has both private and community-owned businesses on their property. They also have a 600 member world-wide prayer group for healing, a Karma Yoga program and an emphasis on Kriya Yoga, which Yogananda described as "the airplane route to God" due to its ability to "enhance one's spiritual evolution."
