The Founding Fathers of the United States, the Italian Renaissance painters, the ancient Greek philosophers ? these represent small groups of creative people who produced fresh insights that influenced the whole world. Today, there exist in America, Europe, and India small groups of people who have banded together, and their collective energy will culminate in the next great sea change in our time: intentional communities. One of these community movements is called ?Ananda.? Cities of Light contains the positive, life-changing lessons learned over the last four decades in Ananda. It describes how people everywhere, living in all kinds of communities ? intentional or otherwise ? can come together to build or improve their own community. About the Author Swami Kriyananda , a direct disciple of the great master, Paramhansa Yogananda, is an internationally known author, lecturer, and composer. Widely recognized as one of the world's foremost authorities on meditation and yoga, he has taught these principles and techniques to hundreds of thousands of students around the world. In 1968, Kriyananda founded Ananda Village in Nevada City, California, dedicated to spreading the spirit of friendship, service, and community throughout the world. Ananda is recognized as one of the most successful intentional communities in the world; over 1,000 people reside in Ananda communities in the US, India, and Italy. The European retreat and community located in Assisi, Italy, also serves Ananda meditation groups in Europe, Croatia, and Russia. Ananda India has been serving people all over India for the last 5 years. With centers in Gurgaon, Pune, Delhi, Noida, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai, Ananda's influence is beginning to be felt all over India. Swami Kriyanandaji can be seen nightly on AASTHA TV, where his message reaches over 27 million viewers across India and southeast Asia.
