Women Welfare Department of Ananda Marga is a women section of Ananda Marga Pracaraka Samgha (AMPS), established in the year 1965. It is dedicated to uplifting the dignity of women and ensure all women have the opportunity to realize their potentialities - physical, mental and spiritual.

Shrii Shrii Ananda Murtijii, the preceptor of Ananda Marga, in His blessing said, "You as the most dignified section of human society do something for the universal human beings." In the field of spirituality He had never supported the age long dogma of isolation of women in spirituality. To ensure that women were encouraged in learning spiritual practice, He personally initiated a number of sisters in the early days of the mission. Like the male counterpart of the organization, He empowered sisters to be ordained as Aca'rya's of His worldwide mission those who would be guiding the entire womanhood into the path of spirituality.

WOMEN`S WELFARE DEPARTMENT works for the all-round development and upliftment of women in society. WWD is divided into several specialised sections which address specific areas of women’s needs.

Master Unit

Yogic nuns (Didis) provide instruction, counseling and personal guidance to women as they advance along the path of yoga. Spiritual practitioners are encouraged to lead a sentient life (vegetarian diet, smoke, drug and alcohol free). Unlike any traditional spiritual paths, in Ananda Marga, the nuns are as fully trained and qualified as the monks in imparting all the lessons of yoga and meditation. WWD manages meditation & yoga centers, schools, children’s homes, medical clinics, youth hostels, short and long term disaster relief. All projects and centers of WWD are managed by yoga nuns and/or volunteers. didis class “Let women be the vanguard of a new revolution which humanity must achieve for a glorious tomorrow.” – Shrii P.R.Sarkar
