Nayaswami Biraj

Biraj Palmer himself makes no special claims to insight. His life pattern is recognizably the same as most of his readers. A variety of jobs started with a dozen years as a preschool teacher, a stint in the publishing business, and half a decade in construction. 

His life turned a corner in 1984 when he began practicing and later teaching meditation, including at Ananda’s Expanding Light Retreat, on the east coast, and in India. He was a founding member of Ananda India and also helped begin Ananda Valley Farm. Biraj’s warmth and joy are contagious. 


Lahari is insightful, wise, and present. She has served in many of Ananda’s colonies since 1986, including Ananda Village, Sacramento, Rhode Island, and India. She and her husband, Biraj, helped to found the new Ananda community near Pune, India, and more recently, the new Ananda Valley Farm in Half Moon Bay. Lahari is a pastoral counselor and teaches many programs at Ananda.
