Hinduism And Hindu Theology - What Is Ananda Marga Yoga Society?

Ananda Marga Yoga Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to yoga. Shri Anandamurti established a modern Hindu organization. 

  • The Society places a strong emphasis on yoga and meditation, which are said to lead practitioners along the road (marga) to happiness (ananda). 

The movement is most powerful in West Bengal, and it has been plagued by controversy throughout India, especially after Anandamurti was charged with the murder of two of his followers. 

  • He was cleared of all charges in the end, but the organization's legal woes caused its members to withdraw from society. 
  • Many Indians are suspicious of them, if not hostile, and the movement is linked to ritual murder and black magic. 
  • It has even been accused of terrorism in recent years, after the unexplained parachuting of a huge consignment of black-market weapons into a neighboring area in early 1995. 
  • Although it has never been proven that the weapons belonged to the Society, this event adds to the shroud of secrecy and suspicion that surrounds it.
