Ānanda Mārga (Sanskrit, m., आनन्द मार्ग, ānanda mārga), organizationally known as Ānanda Mārga Pracaraka Samgha (AMPS), meaning the samgha (organization) for the propagation of the marga (path) of ananda (bliss), is a social and spiritual movement founded in Jamalpur, Bihar, India in 1955 by Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar (1921–1990), also known by his spiritual name, Shrii Shrii Ánandamúrti.

Ananda Marga is described as a practical philosophy for personal development, social service and the all around transformation of society.

Through its meditation centres and service projects around the world, Ananda Marga offers instruction in meditation, yoga and other self-development leadership practices on a non-commercial basis.
