    This course is a gift in so many ways. As a beginner on the spiritual path, it is clearly accessible, while calling from the depths of the soul the sweet remembrance of what is truly important. As an intermediate learner, “traveling the razor-edge path to Self-realization”, the deeply guiding teachings of the beloved master Paramahansa Yogananda are presented in such a clear and concise way. For the more advanced, the utter sweetness of the guru-disciple relationship is so wonderfully deepened, even while calling forth a greater discipline.
    There is a spiritual magic in these teachings, and Sagar helps bring that to life while emanating the blissful joy all human beings seek. There is much more offered in this course than the material in the modules. Because there is no time constraint on completing the work, for me, while it sometimes felt like tarrying, rather it was that the particular teaching was most relevant at the time it was undertaken–sometimes weeks later. Another gift is that we can refer back to the material at any time.
    I learned so much about myself; this course helped me feel much closer to the line of gurus, to Master, to others on the path, and most of all, to God.
    It is with deep gratitude that I offer love and support to this wonderful path. Jai guru!

    This course is a gift and I give thanks to Sagar who shared with us the wisdom of the great spiritual Masters and God. On the path to self-realization, this course is a must. Personally, what I have learned and what I am putting into practice in my daily life from this course, has helped me to wake up (somewhat) from maya, and this is a true blessing.
    Friends from all walks of life, take this course with Sagar who presents the topics of karma and reincarnation in a way that will help you grow spiritually. The lessons do have to be assimilated gradually (it took me 4 extra months to finish the course) and that is part of soul expansion. The quizzes are also a wonderful way of letting the information come alive.
    My gratitude and blessings to Sagar and his innate, divine way of teaching.

    Sagar, I truly enjoyed your classes. The classes are not boring, but always informative and you have a way of using humor when you teach that makes the learning fun. It was obvious from the beginning how organized you are and this helped to make a potential complex topic easier to understand.
    I enjoyed all the readings you selected for us and the quiz helped to see how much one really understood. I will take other classed from you and certainly recommend you to others on the path of learning more about their spiritual life.
    I am really glad that I can go back and read these lessons any time I want. Thank you again for all your work, love and devotion to helping us learn more about who we really are.

    The Karma Course has everything it takes to understand the Law of Karma. Sagar’s teachings are clear, precise, profound, easy to understand and even sometimes humorous. He is always open for questions and to give his full support in our learning path. He is great person and an extraordinary teacher. I learned a lot and I am so grateful for this course that enriched my life.

    Another captivating and thought provoking class through Ananda. If you ever wondered, “Why is this happening to me?”, this is the course for you. Find out how your karma is shaped and what you can do to rise above it. Take it at your own pace, while diving deep in the provided written materials, videos and audio. This was the first course I took after Kriya initiation and it feels like it was the perfect time to do so. And that is truly the beauty of this course – you could take it as your first course or you could take it farther down the road. Karma and Reincarnation are ever relevant topics. Again, Sagar, the course instructor, conveys the material in a light, fun and fascinating manner. This course will give you much to ruminate on. I highly suggest it!

    This is the second course I’ve taken through Ananda, and I am so grateful for the teachings and instructors here. Karma and reincarnation are topics I’ve understood very basically, and now I very much appreciate the understanding and perspective I have gained. Each lesson left me looking forward to the next. And now that this course is completed, I am very inspired to continue with the next course.

    Sagar is a phenomenal instructor. The course material is masterfully assembled from different sources to address each lesson’s focus. There is reading material, a live and recorded class video, and videos from Swami Kriyananda that all complement each other. Sagar’s passion is obvious. He has an enthusiastic delivery of course material and is very thoughtful in answering questions and making comments on our quizzes. He is generous with his time, extremely personable, and also shares on the forum with insights of life at Ananda Village.

  10. 5 out of 5

    The first thing to convey about this course is that Sagar is a delightful instructor who is both lighthearted, warm and accessible but at the same time he brings in depth knowledge, experience and passion to teaching. A hallmark of all of Ananada’s offerings is a logical progression and clear presentations and the material is beautifully logically organized. There are plenty of audio, reading, and video supplements to complement the weekly class presentations. Sagar has the in depth experience to tie the material to practical aspects.

    An important feature of the class is the weekly quizzes which allow you to test your understanding- but more importantly- Sagar gives detailed feedback on each quiz. How he does this for the large class so promptly is a mystery but this allows students to ask questions- explore additional areas- and correct and extend their understanding. A cool feature is that there is always an open ended question or to so students can slip in concerns, special questions, or whatever and get the instructors feedback- a special bonus! Responses are always gentle and loving and students feel positive and uplifted by the ‘quiz experience’.

    I strongly endorse this course for anyone curious about how karma and reincarnation underpin the self-realization path!

    My Thanks to Sagar for another wonderful course. He takes a topic that can be as complicated as you want to make it and through joy, humor and a wealth of knowledge presents it in such a simplified and easily understandable way. This course was fun and enlightening and leads to a broader perspective of Karma and your relationship to it.

  12. 5 out of 5

    Sagar’s course on Karma and Reincarnation is a joy on so many levels, and Sagar treats the material with well prepared knowledge and humor. Having understanding of these deep topics gives us a better sense of the direction on our path to Self-realization and the knowing that we can be successful on our pilgrim’s journey.

    What makes this course especially powerful is that Sagar conveys the energy of the material that Master and Swami taught, not solely the intellectual content. I can’t emphasize this enough. To repeat, the course is a joy.

  13. 5 out of 5

    Karma and Reincarnation is such a deep subject, one that has been fascinating to me for decades. Sagar has presented this course on Karma and Reincarnation with such great insights and made it enjoyable with his cute sense of humor. I have thoroughly enjoyed this course. Thank you Sagar.

  14. 5 out of 5

    My entire life I have been fascinated about Karma and Reincarnation. This is the first course I have taken with Sagar .
    The course was very good and I look forward to taking a deeper dive into the subject. Sagar is truly a sparkling charm and I enjoyed his gentleness, humor and style/method of teaching. Thank you Sagar!

    This course was great. After taking this course, fear of death actually vanishes. Sagar as usual brings smile and energy to all the webinars.

  16. 5 out of 5

    A well structured & self paced course which helps to dive deep in the understanding as to how Karma & reincarnation is intertwined. It shows us the way to move out of the vicious cycle of life and death as well as to achieve the true goal of life is union with God. This course aids us in the transition from a state of self-awareness to one of Divine awareness. Bhramachari Sagar ‘s clarity and profundity of knowledge, as well as the way he used the webinars and shared Master’s teaching with us on various topics, were very inspiring. Previously, I had only a rudimentary understanding of these topics; however, with his help, I now have a thorough understanding that I can apply to my daily life.

  17. 5 out of 5

    This is university level quality! A sensible, yet inspiring course which should be taught EVERYWHERE to EVERYONE! Sagar teaches with incredible depth of wisdom, and sincere heartfelt-joy. If everyone in the world had this information the world would certainly be a better place!

    Energy and vibration are key elements we constantly interact with. I believe we are so much more special than we can even know. I have questions about why good or bad things happen to us, why we are here and as to the meaning of everything, or if there is any meaning to all this. Sometimes life is going really good and we feel like we are in the left lane flying down the highway progressing on our journey, but then life seems to surprise us with unseen speed bumps that will stop us in our tracks. Are we making the right decisions about our current life, are we planning for what future?
    All these unknowns could be improved with a little guidance.
    The Ananda Course on Karma and Reincarnation with Brahmachari Sagar will provide some answers and knowledge from sources such as The Bhagavad Gita and writings from Pramahansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda. This course provides many lectures from Sawmi Kriyananda, blogs about life and thoughtful points of view, helpful anecdotes, as well as lots of inspiring reading material about ending the cycles we create in our lives that prohibit us from experiencing daily happiness and joy.
    I aspire to achieve constant happiness and joy, this course helped to solidify my understanding of what steps I must take in my life to make that happen.

    Thank you Sagar!! This was absolutely done so beautifully. You go into so much depth, but in so much simplicity. Your examples, your knowledge, the flow of your words really brings everything together. I have always been interested in this topic, and you explained everything so well. Your calmness, your enthusiasm for these teachings, and your love for your guru and Ananda truly comes through the way you deliver the courses. Looking forward to taking more courses with you. Thank you again for taking the time to put all the material together so it could benefit people like me.

    This is the second course I have done with Sagar. I have come to enjoy his virtual and real company and friendship very much and would actively seek out any course he was involved with. Thank you. The course does not require you to achieve a percentage or mark to succeed, or even, finish with any particular speed as it is open ended. But continuity is King, just like our spiritual life requires us to keep trying, so trying to keep up is definitely worth the effort. 10/10.

    Quiero expresar mi agradecimiento y con mucha humildad decir que estoy feliz de lo que he aptrendido hasta aqui, que me está llevando a querer seguir recorriendo este camino con la esperanza de alcanzar la auto-realizacion. El camino no es tan sencillo pero Sagar lo está haciendo muy bien y me está ayudando mucho. Tambien siento que no estoy solo y que a pesar de no conocer personalmente a mis companieros de peregrinacion , los siento muy proximos lo cual me lo acaban de confirmar sus comentarios aqui arriba. Elejí tomar este curso en inglés que no es mi lengua materna, pero Sagar lo ha hecho mucho mas sencillo de lo que yo podia esperar. Igualmente quiero dejar este comentario en espaniol para que otros peregrinos se animen a tomar este curso en inglés con Sagar. Es maravilloso.

    Over this past year, I have taken several courses at Ananda. The Karma and Reincarnation course is one of the best. I love the subject matter. Sagar does an incredible job with his clear insight and knowledge. Personally, I can’t get enough. There are so many questions and inquiries when it comes to our Karma. This course answers a lot of those questions. Taking this course has inspired me to learn more about Karma and Reincarnation. I have also been inspired to become a better human being and to take actions in order to live my life a little closer to God each day.

  23. 5 out of 5

    I now have taken several Ananda classes and must say that those taught by Sagar are best of all. He is so warm, knowledgeable, interesting and concerned for the welfare of all that I feel blessed to have learned so much from him. I love the way he structures each lesson and supplements them with interesting videos, readings and interactive quizzes that help to integrate everything we have heard and read. He makes even the most difficult concepts like Karma and Reincarnation understandable and relative to modern life. Somehow he finds the time to supplement weekly lessons with personalized feedback, meaningful stories, humor, and feedback on any and all questions. I highly recommend this class and/or all of Sagar’s classes to anyone seeking knowledge, keen insights. and guidance on their spiritual path.

    Being born and brought up in India, I thought I knew about karma and reincarnation. But this course opened my eyes and brought clarity to the concept. I enjoyed the course and learned a lot. Our instructor Sagar was not only very knowledgeable but also engaged all of us with his infectious enthusiasm.

  25. 5 out of 5

    Just do it! Truly loved this course. If you want to dive deep into Karma and Reincarnation, (and who doesn’t?) then don’t hesitate, sign up. The webinars are great, full of knowledge, explanatory, offering different yet all relevant insights. The additional content,, reading material and videos, are very helpful, informative and also inspiring. The quizzes make it more interactive, so you get the opportunity to digest it all and work with it. The whole set up is well thought of from the beginning to the end. The final story was a perfect ending to this wonderful course. If you join, you’ll understand the principles of karma and reincarnation, how they work and even better, what you can do to overcome.

    Most importantly Brahmachari Sagar carries this course in such a knowledgeable, positive yet humble manner, he is truly a gifted, great and inspiring teacher. My heart is full of gratitude, because he is ever inspiring us to overcome our own karmic challenges in life, but even more so, to be better human beings.

    Do you want to escape the bonds of karma and reincarnation? Then this is the class for you. The instructor Brachmachari Sagar never disappoints.

  27. 5 out of 5

    Karma and Reincarnation 10 session course flew by. Brahmachari Sagar created a step by step path building understanding and then practice for us. I never felt left behind or confused. He is so very welcoming and available for questions and brings these to the discussions in class so all may benefit. To me, this could have been a very heavy and sometimes worrisome topic. However, it was taught with wisdom and wit, lifting us and supporting us as we explored and learned the ABC’s of this important part of our lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    These are beautiful and sacred lessons that are taught by a gifted, talented, and dedicated teacher, Brahmachari Sagar. He is well-informed and knowledgeable about the topic he is teaching, yet, he is witty and portrays a great sense of humor. He is able to command attention as he teaches and transmits a passion about not only the lesson but his relationship and connection with the Divine. It is truly a pleasure to learn about Karma and Reincarnation and many aspects of these two important subjects were clarified.

    I value the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and hold them dearly as sound doctrine. I am very grateful to have been part of a great class and look forward to having more classes taught by Sagar.

    This course was amazing! The instructor is a wonderful resource of wisdom and knowledge, with a witty sense of humor thrown in to make it even more enjoyable.
    If I could say one thing about this course that surprised me, it was how much my childhood Christianity was clarified by these lessons. I didn’t realize how the teachings of Jesus and the Eastern philosophies actually complimented one another and that together they provide such a beautiful picture of life, death and the relationship of Karma and Reincarnation.

  30. 5 out of 5

    I thought I understood reincarnation but there is a lot more to it than I knew. I learned a lot. Our instructor, Brahmachari Sagar was clear and dived deeply into the subject . I very much enjoyed the courses and believe they will be of help to any one who takes them.

  31. 5 out of 5

    The purpose of the classes offered at Ananda is to support the student in awakening to their divine nature. The Karma and Reincarnation curriculum is impeccably organized and brilliantly presented by Brahmanchari Sagar. His kindness, charisma and dedication to his path is evident throughout the journey.

    It was a beautiful journey for me, both for my ego and inner-Self. Next step wil be more challenging I assume, but that’s my pilgrimage. During the course it became more and more clear that the mental knowing of the lesson’s content is not enough to carry on, but meditation is the way forward. The instructor Brahmanchari Sagar is an illustration of this principle and he is an example of the positive behavioural effects in his proven performance of a wise personal teacher and fellow traveler. His joy is infectious.

  33. 5 out of 5

    A terrific course, simply put. Taking these difficult concepts, the instructor, Brahmachari Sagar, teaches with clarity and skill that only one with a deep knowledge of the subject could. I had only a superficial idea of these subjects; he succeeded in opening my eyes to rich levels of understanding, that I can now sincerely apply to my life. The words Karma and Reincarnation have lost their meaning in our current culture and are used indiscriminately; this course brings one back to their true spiritual nature. There are 10 guided lessons, replete with webinars and resources, from reading material to forums for questions to audios and videos to deepen our knowledge.

    I recommend anyone who has the slightest interest in these two fascinating subjects take this course. It will uplift, greatly broaden and perhaps even change, your life!

  34. 5 out of 5

    This course is truly a gift. Genuinely inspiring and life-changing. Initially, I searched for answers to questions concerning myself and relationships and how to accrue no further karma. When the teachings started with the first introductory webinar and readings, everything I thought so far shifted, and a new journey began in the realm of learning about creation and devotion. Not only did I find the answers I was long ago yearning for, but something else also started playing. I am more joyful, centered, content, and no matter what happens, I am standing firm.

    The course is very inspiring. The instructor, Sagar, is helping all along and very approachable. There is a lot of interaction through forums, emails, and webinars. The course has motivated me a lot to study further and be a better person.

  35. 5 out of 5

    A truly beautiful journey into your true Self. This course helped me during a difficult period of my life to really make sense of what was going on and how I can be the catalyst for change, not just for myself but for others. The course is loaded with materials, beautiful lectures, and plenty of direct feedback and access to the outstanding facilitator, Sagar. Whether you are curious about the subject, want to go deeper into your understanding, or are having trouble making sense of life, this course would very likely be a wonderful addition on your journey. Enjoy.
