Ananda Vratii, The Quest Center started in 1988. Ananda Vratii is located in the Endless Mountains in Northern Pennsylvania, a mostly rural area with farms, small villages and towns. The name Ananda Vrati means “With determination, one attains bliss,” a name given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji, the founder and Guru of Ananda Marga. The original building was built new by local Margiis on 23-acres of land that was donated to Ananda Marga. Ananda Vrati is near I-81 – North of Scranton, Pennsylvania, and South of Binghampton, New York.
