Hi great souls,
this is the first page that you have to read, that explains the various ways in which you can be involved with the Sangha. Please see the options below:
- you can join for free the Ananda Sangha Family if you share its ideals and are eventually also ready to offer your services in different ways which are explained in section Ways To Serve
- you can join the Ananda Sangha Family as said before, but in addition become also a member of the “Sangha Family Online”, which means register to the website and make a donation. For this purpose, please go to section Why and How To Join The Sangha
- you can choose NOT to join the Ananda Sangha Family, but only register to the website and make a donation. Please go to the section Donate Now and choose to join the Sangha Family Online
- if you are neither interested to join the Ananda Sangha or register to the site, but just want to make a donation in order to help us, please go to the section Donate Now and choose NOT to join the Sangha Family Online
Donations start with 15 Euros and can be monthly or annually. Be aware that the website lives from your donations and the people working for the site are being payed from your offerings.
Donations can be made:
- online via Credit Card or Paypal: this is the best solution, since in this case our system registers them automatically
