Jyotish Novak is a painter and a yogi. He and his wife, Devi, are the spiritual directors of Ananda Sangha, a worldwide association of meditation groups, centres, and communities. Jyotish paints primarily in oil and many of his paintings contain images that are spiritually meaningful. Mountains, the abode of ancient yogis, suggest both aspiration and seclusion. The ocean symbolises infinity, while waves often indicate the ego pulling away from infinity and then merging back into it. Jyotish's colours are vivid, bridging the gap between the material world and the astral or heavenly worlds of heightened senses. Ananda is based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, who is often depicted in Jyotish's paintings as a symbol of enlightened awareness.
Nayaswami Jyotish is the spiritual director of Ananda Sangha Worldwide. Ananda, which means divine joy, is a spiritual organisation dedicated to living the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the bestselling spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi.
