Our revered Brother Anandamoy, a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda and monk of Self-Realization Fellowship for more than 65 years, passed away peacefully at SRF’s International Headquarters on Mount Washington in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening, September 6, 2016.
As a much-loved and deeply respected minister of SRF, Brother Anandamoy inspired and uplifted thousands through his selfless life and profound understanding of the spiritual life and the Kriya Yoga teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. He has left a lasting legacy in the spiritual lives of countless souls around the world whom he helped and encouraged on the path to God for so many years.
A public memorial service will be held in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 24 in Los Angeles, CA, at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills.
Whether or not you plan to attend the memorial service, we invite you to join with all of us in Spirit as we send Brother Anandamoy our love and gratitude during his transition into the blessed realms of divine freedom and joy, and as we rejoice in his inspiring and exemplary life.
