For the first four years of Ananda Annapurna all collective meditation, lectures, and asana classes were held on the second floor of the main building. However the size of the room could only accommodate about 40 people if everyone squeezed together tightly. Consequently it was not possible to invite very many people to our programs, only small programs could be conducted.
Last year it was decided to raise money for the construction of a new activities hall. By the end of July 2009 the new hall was completed. That year 80 people attended the main summer meditation seminar. It was the first time so many people had come at one time.
