“This is a superb introduction to an understanding of the Astral Body. Sagar is a gifted teacher, able to explain even complex matters in simple, easily understood ways, frequently accompanied with a delightful sense of humour. He has distilled the important features of the astral body with a carefully balanced perspective of what is important and how students can be distracted by trendy fashions.

    I have had the honor of learning from Sagar in other courses, and I can’t recommend his material enough! In this webinar he delivers a very well-organized overview to understanding the energy fields beyond the physical body. This is a timely topic for me in my spiritual progression. I highly recommend!

    I really enjoyed this course! Once again, the Ananada online course offered much more than I was expecting. In the best of ways. I’ll admit that I needed to listen to the recording twice, and there will probably be a third time for me. But Brahmachari Sagar is such an excellent teacher, and the additional reading material is very good. There is so much that is being offered. I’m looking forward to what lies ahead. Peace

    Over long years, I read about energy bodies, and for the first time, I have grasped the link between physical, astral, and causal bodies. My most significant intake from the webinar has motivated me to work on all levels as they interact. The vibration is felt everywhere, and the purification of bodies profoundly inspires me. These concepts are so subtle, and I am fortunate to have clear instructions of Sagar, especially his allegories; I will keep the learnings for long years.

  6. 5 out of 5

    I immensely enjoyed this webinar. Sagar is an excellent teacher and made this complex topic easy to understand through his clear, concise and sometimes humorous explanations while seamlessly navigating between talking about the concepts and answering a wide variety of questions. I learned a lot from his explanations on the astral body as well as his responses to the many thought provoking questions. Understanding the astral body and kundalini has further inspired and motivated me to continue on this path towards Kriya Yoga.

    I would highly recommend this webinar to anyone who is looking to get a deeper understanding of who we are beyond our physical body.

    This webinar arrived at the perfect time. Sagar has pulled elements of the meditation course, the Yoga Teachings of Jesus, Understanding the Chakras and the lessons in Kriya Yoga into a cohesive format. I understand the anatomy of the astral body and the role it plays in yoga. Thank you, Sagar, for this insight.

  11. 5 out of 5

    Thank you Sagar for an excellent webinar. This was my first class with Ananada and I did not know what to expect. The webinar did not disappoint! Sagar is a very knowledgeable teacher who shared his wisdom with clarity, patience and kindness. As a considerable amount of material was covered I was very grateful to receive the printed notes to review the session. Sagar’s dedication is an inspiration to us all. I look forward to taking further classes with Sagar and with the Ananda family. Thank you so much!

    Sagar does a great job of warmly presenting subtle concepts and ideas!
    Also the comprehensive bonus material accompanying The Anatomy of the Astral Body was much appreciated.

  13. 5 out of 5

    Thank you, Sagar, for the wonderful course on the astral body. What was conveyed in this course, was beyond the mere intellectual content, but transmitted the actual energy and reality of these subtle bodies. The concepts of the physical, astral, and causal bodies and their relationships are explained, along with the specific anatomy of the chakras. Again, their energetic reality accompanied each concept. I recommend this course most highly.

  14. 5 out of 5

    This was my first time attending a webinar thru’ Ananda. Sagar is an amazing teacher. I really liked the emphasis that was given that one should be kind, compassionate etc. to see spiritual progress. Quite a bit of knowledge was shared in a two hour webinar. Thank you Sagar!

  15. 5 out of 5

    If you have every wondered if there was more to life than the physical body, then this course/class is for you. Sagar is an exceptional teacher who explains esoteric concepts in easy to understand terms. And he does with great humor & joy. His classes come from his heart. His joy of sharing these teachings is clearly palpable.

  16. 5 out of 5

    Thank you Sagar, for presenting an excellent webinar on the Astral Body. One of the things I especially like about Sagar’s presentation is that he is fully knowledgeable on the topics he presents. The flow of his presentation is effortless and creates a good foundation for what we are learning in our other studies.
    I found the webinar to be filled with a lot of useful information for now as well as in the future.

    Namaste,

    Brahmachari Sagar Ji,
    Thank you so much for putting up this amazingly informative and enlightening webinar. Your course provided tremendous insights and perspective in my path to self-realization. I am inspired and intrigued to learn more. It was the best $25 I ever spent in my life.
    May God bless you.
    Aum

    Another enlightening course, with clear explanations and grounded examples from real life. It’s always hard to describe something one can’t see, and to come away knowing how to “see” our astral body on so many other levels, was an eye-opener for me (no pun intended)! So much information packed into 2 hours and the opportunity to study it over and over at my own pace from the recording is a real gift. Thank you, Sagar. Thank you
    Ananda

  22. 5 out of 5

    Another excellent course with Sagar. Clear, concise and very sensible. No mumbo-jumbo! Taking this course has helped me tune-in with what is happening in the astral and causal bodies during meditation. A big thank-you!

  23. 5 out of 5

    Great Course and very informative and interesting. Sagar has great Energy and I very much enjoyed his presentation.

  24. 5 out of 5

    This webinar was very informative and I learn a lot in 2 hours. Very easy to follow and understand. Thank you so much!

  25. 2 out of 5

    Loved this webinar. Sagar is such a great teacher. I had the pleasure of his teaching during the meditation class I took with Ananda, and was so happy to see he was giving this webinar. Thanks so much the great teachings!

  26. 5 out of 5

    Beautifully and clearly presented material! Really helped me understand the astral body, which was just a fancy word for me before listening. I highly recommend the work of Brahmacharayi Sagar.

  27. 5 out of 5

    Every one of Sagar’s online classes are filled with knowledge and open my mind up to great ideas! Learn about your astral body and how you are more special than you think. This is a 2 hour class and it’s recorded so if you want to watch again, go ahead.

  28. 5 out of 5

    I am learning more with every study . Taking it step by step. I want to do it right. I have read and reread the reading materials .
    I’m very near 75 and my memory is not what it used to be . I love that I can go over the videos and reading materials when I need to.

    Bramachari Sagar is an exceptional teacher with great enthusiasm for the topics & a crazy good way of using real life, practical situations to explain concepts. I always enjoy Sagar, but this course blew me away with new insights about why we should be working on our astral body. I won’t spoil it for you because the “Aha!” moment was worth every penny. Victoria Tooker

  30. 5 out of 5

    Anatomy of The Astral Body is a fantastic webinar and Sagar is an amazing teacher. I have taken other classes with Sagar. He is always well-prepared , very informative and very passionate about his subject. His classes are fun and enjoyable. I would highly recommend any class Sagar teaches. 5 stars for Sagar!!

  31. 5 out of 5

    It’s always amazing how God responds with an “ask and thou shalt receive” type of opportunities that are specifically targeted towards the next level of spiritual growth. I’ve taken several classes under Sagar’s guidance and especially enjoy his depth of knowledge, sense of humor, and passionate teaching method.

    The Anatomy of the Astral Body webinar added a new level of understanding in reference to moving more deeply into Divine nature, such as a wiser way of thinking about Self-Realization. It takes a great deal of work to be free of one’s human nature and knowing that the manifestation process requires a “no malarky” and a “break out of jail” type of mindset was a comforting revelation. Thank you very much Sagar!

    Aum Shanti Shanti Shanti

  32. 5 out of 5

    I just watched the recorded webinar “Anatomy of the Astral Body” so kindly provided by Bramachari Sagar. He so sweetly explains the difficult concepts in a way that is very relatable and easy to remember. He does his best to answer everyone’s questions while staying focused on the material on hand. He read from different scriptures and from Autobiography of a Yogi throughout the course, but his explanations beforehand really bring the scriptures to life. I look forward very much to my next session with Bramachari Sagar and the Ananda organisation!

  33. 5 out of 5

    Excellent offering, once again, by Sagar! There was quite a bit of information packed into these two hours, but student questions were answered as well. Sagar does a fantastic job keeping the discussion on track. Much of the content in the second hour was new to me, and I must say that I am excited! Looking more forward than ever to receiving Kriya initiation, God willing.

  34. 5 out of 5

    Thank you for your webinar. You did a great job in presenting a difficult subject, as well as in answering challenging questions. I liked how you kept the focus of the discussions on the subject so as not to complicate the process of a complex practice. All of which leads to understanding the process of self-realization. Thank you, Sagar! I enjoyed your webinar tonight.

  35. 5 out of 5

    This is a beautiful course and Sagar is a wonderful instructor. It is a great way to see how the Ananada courses are so well developed, presented and packed with content.

  36. 5 out of 5

    Beautifully Explained. Especially the importance of the attitude on the path of Yoga. Thank you for such a clear description of the causal, astral, and physical body as 3 casings.

  37. 5 out of 5

    Bramachari Sagar did a wonderful job with the webinar. It was perfect timing for me in my spiritual journey. Hearing from him that there other ways (feeling Joy, displaying kindness, finding the enjoyment in life) to see spiritual progress was very encouraging to me and validated my prior belief that I could progress spiritually without seeing visions or any other tangible signs!

  38. 5 out of 5

    Excellent!! Very well explained! It´s really worth listening. Thank you so much!

    Jai Guru!

  39. 5 out of 5

    Great course on understanding the astral spine, how energy flows through the spine and chakras, and gives an understanding of the use of astral energy to reach and commune with God. This course is important to anyone who wants to apply for Kriya yoga. Thank you Sagar.

  40. 5 out of 5

    Thanks Sagar for your knowledge about the topic and clear explaination. I really enjoy the webinar and learned a lot in two hours period.

  41. 5 out of 5

  44. 5 out of 5

    Incredible course conducted by Sagar. It was detailed and interesting. I learnt a lot ! Thanks a ton.

  45. 5 out of 5

    Highly recommended! Taught with pure intent so the vibration of OM was omnipresent. Thank you.

  46. 4 out of 5

    This was a great course. Very informative on how the body works in subtle energies.

  47. 5 out of 5

    As ALWAYS, Sagar is an excellent instructor. This course really detailed the differences between the Physical, Astral, and Causal Bodies. I totally learned something new regarding Kundalini. In previous modalities I was taught that Kundalini rises when pushed from the bottom up. The process of magnetizing the upper Chakras and drawing the energy up is a much more efficacious and logical process. I have taken numerous courses with Ananda and this one like all the others does not disappoint. I encourage you to take this and many more.

  48. 5 out of 5

    This course is a wonderful foundational introduction to important concepts that meditation is intended to address. It helped me to understand the fuller picture of the benefits and goals of meditation and the Path of Kriya Yoga. The webinar is packed with information and Sagar is a kind and clear instructor for all levels of students.
