Ananda Marga is a global spiritual and social service organization founded in 1955 by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti (also known as Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar.) The mission of Ananda Marga is self-realization and service to humanity: the fulfillment of the physical, mental and spiritual needs of all people. Self-realization is achieved by meditating on the Supreme Consciousness. Rendering selfless service to the needy purifies the mind of the spiritual aspirant and paves the way for all round progress, providing positive environs to our fellow human beings, animals, plants and the non-living creation.
We offer yoga as a comprehensive spiritual lifestyle including meditation, ásanas (yoga postures), vegetarianism, social service, and a holistic approach to life.

While you are executing your noble task do not waste your time. In this practical world, the most valuable relative factor is time. Once the time has passed and gone, it does not return again, so never misuse time.
The Supreme lies hidden in everything, like oil in sesame seeds, like butter in milk, like water in dry streambeds, like fire in flint. Only those who adhere strictly to truth, and perform spiritual practices, can churn the mind and realize the Supreme Entity out of it.
Good is that which elevates the mind, and evil, is that which degrades the mind. Social virtue and vice are temporal entities. These things have nothing to do with a person's relationship with the Supreme.
