    I highly recommend the course on Living the Principles of Self Realization to all those who want to advance more effectively and dynamically on the path of Joy. This course provides so many powerful insights into the spiritual path and universal principles, which have been beautifully conveyed by the instructors. It also offers practical tools to fruitfully apply the principles of yoga and meditation to daily life, so we can all, in time, grow inwardly stronger and look at ourselves and the world with an innate sense of gratitude and acceptance.

    I loved this course! I purchased the book to make it more convenient for me to read the lessons without having to sit in front of my computer for all the content, but the video and audio recordings were wonderful and an excellent supplement to the written material. I learned so much, and feel grateful to have had this opportunity. I has been and will continue to be a true enrichment to my practice and my life. The touchpoints throughout the week have been an important element in helping me stay focused and on track. I am sad to see it end, but will carry the experience with me as I move forward in my spiritual journey.

    This course in living the principles of self realization has reminded me of the wonderful mysteries in life and the joy of self introspection. With the state of the world and this ever changing era we live in, it is easy to fall into worry, confusion and self doubt. By revisiting the lessons offered in this introduction to kriya yoga I have been reminded of concepts that had started to slip slowly from my mind. As I started to go through the lessons and pull out my old raja yoga books I began to feel the inner light peaking through once more. I felt a renewed sense of inner inspiration towards my spiritual growth. I am always amazed at the depth and scope of any course, class, discussion or article I have come across in or from Ananda. It is clear how much care went into making these courses interactive and comprehensive for seekers of all levels. Thank you Ananda for reminding me that I am worthy of the light and for showing me how to push that light out into the world. Aum, Peace, Amen!

    Living the principles of self-realization has magnified the areas in my life that have been needing attention. The 10-week course has been challenging because let’s be honest who wants to look at the aspects of themselves that are not desirable. However, the weekly lessons have provided me with a variety of tools to use to face my fears. My house is filled with positive affirmations to remember. My meditation practice is beginning to deepen. I have enjoyed the live webinars and meditations. It has been a rich journey thank you.

    This course is very informative and a very good experience which gave me answers to all the questions I had before.
    My favorite video is the Guru-disciple video which tells about commitment and loyalty. Its a Satsang for me to keep me on track. I feel like I have been guided here.

    Living the principles of Self-Realization is a great and uplifting course. Dhyan and the other instructors did a fantastic job presenting the webinars and giving constructive feedback after each test. This course has added a lot of inspiration to my commitment to meditation. Thank you!

    I loved doing the “Principles of Realization” I have gained so much knowledge and wisdom. I loved learning about Raja Yoga, every time I do a course with Ananda I feel I am transforming into a greater version of my self. I feel I have found my soul family with Ananda.
    I am much happier, grounded, compassionate, calmer and peaceful. I am spiritualising my life as Kriyananada says, I am more loving and understanding of other sentient beings. I feel I have gained a lot from every aspect of the course, I loved doing the quiz’s it enabled me to re-read the notes and absorb the information thoroughly, I also looked forward to reading the comments from Bob and Nayaswami Lalita they were so inspirational, supportive and loving. I loved Dhyan’s teaching ‘s, Dhyan has a beautiful way of connecting with others. I am developing a deeper relationship with Paramahansa Yogananda, I feel his love and presence with me daily. I am so looking forward to doing the Discipleship course. I would recommend this course to anyone who is ready to dive deep and become one with the divine. All my love Suzie Price xoxo

    Amazing course. I’m finding myself drawn to yoga more and more with each course, this Self-Realization course was definitely a highlight for me, loved the parts on magnetism and affirmations, just getting a sample of what’s to come on the guru-disciple relationship from the last module is enough for me to sign up for the next course. blessings Kris

    Yet another wonderful course in the Ananda offerings! All the Ananda courses are intertwined, and I was able to greatly appreciate during this one that it doesn’t matter where one starts…with Yoga offerings, Lessons in Meditation, etc…the concepts are revisited with perhaps a slightly different angle or more in depth in one dimension and the courses complement each other. The ah-ha moments that come as a result are, in fact, ever new joy. Living the Principles of Self-Realization was concept oriented and the discussions raised much food for thought to ponder personally. Dyhan did a super job with the main webinars and meditation sessions, and the other members of the Ananda team provided constructive feedback and encouragement. I appreciated everyone’s openness to take individual questions via email, and I found the responses well thought out and helpful. Thank you, team, for all the care!

    I feel blessed for having stumbled on this path. The second course gave me more deeper understanding of the concept of life. The videos, the lessons were so informative and thought provoking. I sincerely thank all the teachers who guided and gave personal feedback, gave tips to improve and their constant encouragement was a blessing. Doing these courses, l personally feel l have found a family forever, the Ananda family and that l am never alone. There will always be the teachers if l ever need any spiritual guidance. I have started looking at everything from a new perspective and l feel all these years, it was some other person whose life l was leading, a shallow life. I have a long way to go, but l am happy that l found my calling. Some good karma of my past lives have brought me on this road led by great masters.

    Truly uplifting course. If you are willing to dive deep, Ananda team provides everything you need: Structured curriculum and personal guidance. Above all, you really feel sincerity emanating from Bob, Lalita and Dhyan. That additionally motivates you. Without hesitation, I strongly recommend it 🙂

    “Living the Principles of Self-Realization” was an an excellent class. I truly enjoyed the variety of teachings methods from reading materials, to audio, to video to the live teachings and group mediations, it was truly well rounded and beautiful. The online program software was user friendly as well. I enjoyed hearing from various speakers with various personalities with consistent teachings. I resonated with Dhyan’s magnetic energy and truly enjoyed the beautiful messages that flowed through him. I also looked forward to the heartfelt feedback of the lessons from both Dhyan and Nayaswami Lalita.

    I am grateful to all the Ananda members that contribute to make this and other courses successful. The thoughtfulness felt is heartwarming.

    I feel truly blessed to have discovered this at this time. Thank you !

    I’ve been humbled by the way in which this course has already influenced my life. It seemed as if each week’s lessons were perfectly timed for where I was personally. I particularly enjoyed the readings each week. They were full of incredible wisdom, but grounded in practical metaphors and recommendations that made it much more accessible. I tried doing the 2nd step of the Kriya Yoga program some time ago and never fully resonated with the material. I believe changes were made to the course material or at least I changed in the time between my first attempt and this one. But time and again Yogananda and his incredible wisdom seem to continue leading me down a path, patiently allowing me to stumble and even step away at times when I’m feeling disconnected from the material, only to welcome me back when I’ve reconnected to the deeper vibrations leading me further along my path. I’m truly grateful for this course.

    This course has helped me a lot in my spiritual journey.The coursework is interesting and the teachers are very helpful. I feel a connection with the teachers and truly blessed to be a part of Ananda .I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to make spiritual progress.

    How blessed I feel that the Ananda Courses should have come into my life at this particular time! With the Pandemic forcing us to slow down and stay inside, I was presented with this incredible opportunity to go within. I have been an active spiritual seeker for 40 years and so had been familiar with Raja Yoga teachings. But I found this course to not only be a wonderful review but much material was presented in a manner that made it understandable and fresh perspective was presented that helped me to be self-reflective in a beneficial way. I was encouraged and able to establish a much more regular meditation practice. I love that all teachings are so heart centered and that it feels as if – literally – my own heart is stretching! Dhyan is a warm and knowledgeable presenter. His balanced and conversational tone is a pleasure. Most importantly the desire he has to transmit the teachings and the loving feeling he has towards all spiritual aspirants is quite palpable. I truly appreciated the thoughtful comments and suggestions that both he and Lalita gave to the written homework. I look forward to continuing my studies on this Noble Path!

    Taking this class has shown me the subtle realm in my life that has drawn me to this path at exactly the right time and has shown me how so much has led to this class.
    If you feel that you need to do this class, pay attention because it could be so for you too! Highly recommend!

  18. 5 out of 5

    I can certainly say this course is essential and of great help to everyone who seeks spiritual awakening and development.
    The course takes you step by step through this journey and explains things to you that would probably have taken much longer time to grasp and comprehend.
    Besides amazing people who teach from their heart and dedicated to deliver their best
    Thank you all

    The Living the Principles of Self-Realization course with Ananda has been uplifting, educating, and such a positive force in my life!

    The spiritual journey is great and very enticing. This course gave me lots of insights into spiritual journey And has transformed me to a different level. What ever I say , will be ver less, this is good course and interactions with Dyan is great and will be cherished for ever.

    I sincerely pray that every divine seeker would peek in to this great masters and lay a foundational stone for their spiritual joinery.
    Do not miss this class.

    This class truly has taken me to the next level in my spiritual development. As I progressed through each lesson, my awe and love for God grew and grew! I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to take these classes and highly encourage anyone looking to find their own true purpose in life to enroll and take the journey as well!

    Thank you Ananda for fulfilling your true mission of servitude and stewardship in providing the platform for seekers like myself who were always yearning for this teaching but could never find it in traditional “churchianity”.

    I have found, finally, my true purpose and have found the peace of heart I have been chasing my entire life!

    God bless everyone at Ananda!

    Living the Principles of Self-Realization is a truly inspiring course that has transformed my approach to meditation. It contains a treasure trove of wonderful audio, video and text documents that give us the tools to progress weekly. I very much looked forward to the new lessons opening each week! Dhyan and Lalita provide thoughtful and inspiring feedback weekly and are very much present throughout the course. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for both practical advice and inspiration to further their meditation practice, and above all, who would like to dive deeper into the divine teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, as communicated by Swami Kriyananda. I am very excited to move onto Step 3! Thank you to all of Ananda for the wonderful love that you are shining into the world.

  22. 5 out of 5

    Living the Principles of Self-Realization was a wonderful and very timely class for me. I really enjoyed learning the content and have been able to progress immensely with my spiritual development! I am excited to move on to class #3 and continue my journey!

    Living the principles of Self-Realization was amazing and inspiring for higher aspiration. I appreciated the energy and love from Nayaswami Lalita and Dhyan put into the course with fascinating webinars and heart-touching feedback. It was a rewarding and light-filled inner journey. Thank you so much for this step together AUM

    I am so grateful to have participated in Living the Principles of Self-Realization. The course is organized, well structured, and moves at a very good pace. One of the highlights of the course is access to early recordings of Swami Kriyananda’s lectures. It is so uplifting to listen to Swamiji expound on the central teachings of yoga, and I certainly felt a shift in my consciousness during the course. The course helped me to go much deeper in my meditations and to attune myself to the Masters in a way that I could not before. Before the course, I meditated in a more mechanical way, and I now greatly look forward to my meditations every day. The course helped me to release and overcome energy blockages. I feel a greater desire to live in accordance with the Divine will, and a growing sense of peace and joy inside myself.

    Thank you so much, Dhyan and Nayaswami Lalita!

    This course has indeed changed my life. With this class, I have become  more positive, energetic and most importantly emotionally stable. The teachers are very genuine and pure. I was in fact in search of a course like this for a long time, and finally I got what I wanted. I highly recommend the Ananda courses, especially to those spiritual seekers, who are  passionate and are looking for spiritual meaning and purpose in life. No doubt, I would give five star to this course.

    Never stop learning, never stop insisting on holding the heart and head of the student.

    Each of these lessons arrived in divinely timed grace. Each of these lessons returned me to presence and allowing the space for God/Universal/One grace to channel through this body freely.

    I cannot say enough. But I also cannot say much. It is worth diving into for your own self.

  27. 5 out of 5

    Even though I have been practicing yoga for a long time. this course offered learnings I had only glimpsed at, but never learned what they could mean in my life. Most useful to me was the yiamas and Dhyan’s suggestion to pick one and try it for a month. I picked non lying as to do it I had to be true to myself and not delude myself one way or another. Immediately I felt a weight off my shoulders as if I didn’t have to do those things any more. This course is practical in knowing how to live a more fulfilled life. I learned a great deal.

  28. 5 out of 5

    This course has been wonderful for keeping me on track in my practice. The instructors are kind, loving, and completely engaged. A joyful experience!

    “Living the Principles of Self-Realization” is the second class in the path of meditation. Live Satsang and meditation with Dhyan, reading material, audio as well as videos for each lesson made this class unique. After a couple of weeks, I got busy with day to day life. I started falling behind in submitting quizzes and practicing exercises and meditation. I thought I will not able to complete this course. One day, I received a personal email from Dhyan. His email encouraged me to get back on the path. I had not only submitted all quizzes but also started to practice meditation and exercises daily. Quizzes especially the essay question is the most important part of the course. Dhyan and Nayaswami Lalita provided feedback to quizzes which help me to get back on the path of meditation and improve how I practice exercises and meditation. This class had helped me to make positive changes in my life.

    The Living the Principles of Self-Realization course with Ananda has been uplifting, educating, and such a positive force in my life! Thanks to Dhyan and Lalita for your continued guidance on this wonderful path. Thanks for caring for each student in this course and teaching us these life affirming concepts. As a result of this course I know look at things in my life differently. Thank you so much!

  31. 5 out of 5

    I am very grateful and happy to have found the Ananda community that offers deeply inspiring courses on the great teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. The course “Living the Principles of Self-Realization” was really excellent and throughot the couse I felt the deep sincerity and personal engagement of course instructor Dhyan, who together with Nayaswami Lalita patiently responded to all my questions and encouraged me in such a constructive way. I have already signed up for the follow-up course on discipleship and am joyfully anticipating the forthcoming lessons. Thank you so much, you are doing a wonderful job as course instructors!

    So impressed by the depth and quality of organisation, materials and care from the people at Ananda on this course and the previous one. Following them has helped convert me from a reluctant, irregular meditator to an enthusiastic and regular one, and to see much more clearly what is important in life. As a former worshipper at the temple of intellect 😉 the written materials that come along with the course, and particularly Yogananda’s version of the Bhagavad Gita have satisfied hugely my need to have a mind-understanding of what life is, and how commitment to a spiritual path is an inevitability for us at some stage, so we might as well start with a well-evidenced one now. Thank you to all at Ananda for the experiences so far.

  33. 5 out of 5

    I liked the “Living the Principles of Self-Realization” course. It is well structured course designed to deepen the meditation and dive deeper into the spiritual path. All topics covered philosophy, breathing, and meditation techniques in detail. Dhyan is a knowledgeable and helpful instructor. I enjoyed spending time with Dhyan chanting, meditating and teaching. He provided very practical information in the quizzes, which helped me to dive deep into meditation and the spiritual path. Thank you for providing this wonderful opportunity.

    At the beginning of the pandemic, when we were confined for more than a month, I felt a strong inner call for a boost in my meditation practice and in my spiritual life. I asked for help and inspiration and it came in the form of an Internet advertisement for Ananda online courses that allow access to Kriya Yoga initiation. After a short research I did not hesitate and enrolled in the meditation course. I consider everything that happened at the time and during these past few months to be a blessing. I learned a lot of really important things and, above all, I improved my meditation practice and I feel closer to the Masters and the Father-Mother Principle who lives within us all. I thank all the instructors for the dedication and love they put into this divine service. I will continue until the end (or is it the beginning?), until Kriya Yoga initiation, so help me God. Namaste, dear friends.

  35. 5 out of 5

    Thank you very much for this course and wonderful experience. I always felt blessed by the webinars with Dhyan. Thank you Dhyan and Lalita for your kindness, for your support and blessings. I felt always supported by your loving words. You are living and feeling what you are teaching.
    You are always accepting what is and it is very uplifting to stay in contact with you.
    Thank you that I had the opportunity to be part of this course.
    I also loved the audio from Swami Kriyananda very much.
    Thank for all members of Ananda and their enthusiasm and love.

    Blessings and love

    “Living the Principles of Self-Realization” is an excellent class and I recommend it to everyone interested in growing in the path. Dhyan is an inspirational instructor than takes time to connect with every student and guide him/her to focus on the things that are important. I enjoyed the mix of spending time with Dhyan meditating and teaching, the videos with various speakers, Swami Kriyananda talks and the lovely chants!!!!!!! Truly the best way to learn meditation and Raja Yoga. It made me examine my thoughts, behavior and decisions and put them into a positive divine perspective.

  37. 5 out of 5

    These Ananda courses are wonderful. There is so much wisdom here, and such generosity of spirit. I have gained immeasurably from all of it. It is refreshing and inspiring to see the Ananda people openly dedicating their lives to God and Guru, and teaching us with such enthusiasm, willingness and clarity.. I would like to thank Dhyan and Lalita for their kindness, sensitivity and encouragement, and all the speakers for their vision. I’m glad that most of the videos remain available, I think, indefinitely. There is a lot to absorb and cogitate upon, but this course has opened windows in my understanding and in my heart too, and I’m grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to partake of it.

  38. 5 out of 5

    What a joy to have participated in the course, Living the Principles of Self-Realization! I am still a beginner with the Ananda teachings, but have been meditating for over forty years. This program and others from Ananda have influenced my mediation practice and my everyday living. Dhyan brings to the course an open heart, that embraces everyone. He attended to us individually and uniquely in his responses in our assignments and one-on-one questions. The course is well-organized, provides a variety of activities to meet the goals of the class and brings together so many unique souls from around the world. Thank you, Dhyan, my life is richer and more peaceful after attending this class. Joy to you.

    It has been an honour and a blessing to have discovered this path! Living the Principles of Self- Realization was a natural progression for me from the first step, as I gained tremendously from it. This course has only furthered my progress. It is wonderfully curated and our teacher, Dhyanji, has offered much more than simply the teachings of Yoganandaji!
    His words of encouragement, his kindness and the divine friendship he has to offer, have all made this course truly meaningful and special!
    I thank all at Ananda for this wonderful opportunity and for doing a great service to humanity!

    Joy to all

    I found this course to be extremely valuable to my spiritual practice and understanding. The lessons are clear, full of resources, excitingly rich with information, and provide powerful methods of truly deepening spiritual awareness. The instructors connected personally with me to provide feedback and advice that best suited me and my spiritual growth. I am endlessly grateful to have taken this course and would recommend it to all seekers of God.

  41. 4 out of 5

    I thoroughly enjoyed this course and learning more about yogic philosophy and the principles of Kriya yoga. The readings, videos, and recordings were so rich and full of so much wisdom – I feel that I gained much knowledge from the teachings provided in this course. I definitely can say that I have a better grasp on the philosophical teachings of Raja yoga. Part of me just wants to sit with all the beautiful teachings and content provided in this class and let it all sink in deeper and deeper.

    I also feel that my meditation practice has been richly improved due to the new material I was introduced to in this course. I am excited to go on to the next course and further expand my meditation practice.

    Many blessings,
    Paul

    The Living the Principles of Self-Realization course has expanded greatly on the teachings received in the Lessons in Meditation course. By expanding on the principles learned such as Hong-Sau, Meditation, Breathing Exercises, Energization Exercises and many new topics I feel much more inner peace and am able to dive deeper than ever before.

    Dhyan is a wonderful teacher and thoughtfully responds to your questions as well as your quiz feedback. It is possible to feel his warmth through his individual responses to you.

    Onwards and upwards on the path to Kriya initiation!

  43. 5 out of 5

    A lot has been written about the course that I can only agree with.
    I would especially like to mention that Dhyan and Lalita are always at your side, with loving words, prayers and individual solutions wherever they are needed.
    Thank you very much!

  44. 5 out of 5

    My spiritual journey, both in knowledge and practice has been enriched because of the course. And the tutors are quite simply wonderful souls. I really value the time they spent on giving me feedback that is not only encouraging, but insightful each time. Thank you, Dhyan and Lalita.

  45. 4 out of 5

    I must confess, “Living the Principles of Self-Realization” is a great course and an eye opener and have added to my knowledge. It was a bit tough at the beginning for me because I was down with malaria fever but looking better now.

    The course was well packaged with reading and other materials and excellently presented to seekers by experienced instructors. Without mixing words, I will recommend this course to interested seekers who want to go further in the understanding the techniques of meditations leading to Self and God realization in this lifetime.

    In a nutshell, linking self with a Master soul or Guru to continue the spiritual path is what this course is all about. We have been following some of the rudiments of spirituality preparing the students to the great inner journey beyond the physical realms.

    It has always been said that when the Chela or student is ready the Master will appear.
    Many thanks and blessings to all Ananda team for presenting meditation via online platform in a very exciting way for seekers to quickly flow along.

    What is left now is practice, practice and practice to achieve the needed results…

    I want to recommend the Living the Principles of Self-Realization to every soul that is out there seeking to come home. The course features several techniques to calm the body and mind so that we can reflect in our life to take responsibility for patterns and current situations. Dhyan and Lalita are such great teachers full of love and understanding. Their wisdom and love are inspiring and motive you to continue growing in the spiritual path.

    The course “Living the Principles of Self-Realization”, was very helpful for me personally to deepen my knowledge in this amazing ancient teachings of India as redefined by Paramahansa Yogananda and brought in this course in a very clear way by his disciple Swami Kriyananda. I have benefited from it both theoreticaly and practically. The texts, sound material, video recording, live webinars and additional materials compliment each other very well, analysing and explaining the lesson from different angels. The teachers have been very supportive, helpful and I have felt their sincere intention to respond to my specific needs. They are a true guidance as they embody and practice the teachings they are transmitting. I recommend this course not only to those who wants to follow the path of Kriya Yoga but to everyone who wants to know how to be the best version of themselves and how to heave a meaningful life. I am grateful for the guidance and blessings I have received though this course!
    Love and Light, Adela

    This course: “Living the Principles of Self-Realization” is truly an uplifting and inspiring course. The teachings of ancient principles on how to live our lives to the fullest have enriched my perception of life. The teachers, Dhyan, Arati, and Lalita are wonderful souls, who will guide you with their vast knowledge and examples; their gentle guidance will inspire you to be diligent with your practice.

    I’m not a novice in yoga, but what I have learned in this course and previous Ananda meditation course is so much more than I have learned so far. Enrolling in these classes has been the best decision I took during a challenging year of pandemic and social unrest. The teachings of “Living the Principles of Self-Realization” was like finding a beacon of hope and peace amidst chaos. One begins to find and understand the meaning behind the struggles of life.
    I want to extend my special gratitude to Dhyan for his listening and guidance in a calm and patient manner. May he and his team be blessed.

    As with all classes I have taken thus far with Ananda, I found Living the Principles of Self-Realization to be full of tools that I am able to use on a daily basis to keep me on my spiritual path. Some of the concepts in the class were difficult to understand but the facilitators did an excellent job of making the concepts understandable. The feedback I received on the quizzes was helpful and right on point. They are walking the path alongside the students which makes this system work. Due to work commitments I got behind in my studies and received a gentle but firm suggestion from Dyhan to keep going, encouraging me on and highlighting the benefits of continuing. I really appreciated that he took notice I was struggling a bit. His loving motivation encouraged me to complete the course. For anyone interested in learning and moving forward in the spiritual quest I highly recommend this class. Changed my life for the better!!

    While I cannot say thet the course ‘blew me away’ as did the first in this series, ‘Living the Principles of Self Realisation’ certainly continues to build on its foundations, both in terms of deepening meditation practice and in terms of furthering our understanding of Yoga. I especially enjoyed the video introductions and Dhyan’s webinars, in particular the sections on affirmations and magnetism. The assignments and the feedback I got helped me to hone in on the most important points and to apply the lesson to my own life. Thanks to both Dhyan and Lalita for the time they took for their personal, thoughful feedback. I have been touched in many ways and feel inspired to continue. Many thanks all round.

  52. 5 out of 5

    “Living the Principles of Self-Realization” is an inspiring yet practical course that I would recommend to all serious spiritual seekers. Under the loving stewardship of Dhyan and Lalita, the curriculum was presented in a multi-media format featuring numerous teachers which enabled students to gather a variety of perspectives on the topics at hand. Unlike other spiritual courses I have taken, the teachers made an effort to connect deeply with each Soul. Every student was treated with the utmost care, respect and consideration. No question went unanswered and every challenge was acknowledged whether there was a solution for it or not. This course lays the ground work for leading a spiritualized life and the instructors demonstrate the “Principles” through their actions.
    To all the great Souls who made this course possible — thank you.

    The course “Living the Principles of Self-Realization”, is a course worth taken if one is really interested in attending to Self-realization.

    The course starts with the Principles of Energy and Energization followed by what is Raja Yoga and the Paths of Yoga. Next it discusses Ashtanga Yoga: Patanjali’s Eight Limbed Path, Yama, which talks about the Dont’s of the Spiritual Path and Niyama, the Do’s of the Spiritual Path. These are rules and regulation of the Spiritual Path, what you should not do “Yama” and what you should do “Niyama”. Transforming Habits and the Science of Using Affirmations is one of the most powerful lesson in this programme. I is about reprogramming the subconscious mind for better things to happen in one’s live

    The lesson on Environment is Stronger than Willpower: The Principle of Magnetism, is another important lesson which teaches one on how to be positive in his or her thoughts and changing the negative way we do things, which helps us build positive magnetism in other to attract positive things to once live and build projection around outlives. The Nature and Purpose of Creation, opens us up to why we are here on earth, what our duties are as human and what to do in other fulfill our purpose here on earth.

    The programme ends with an Introduction to the Guru-disciple Relationship. Do we want to be completely spiritual, then we need to stick to a path and be loyal to the teachings of the path and its leadership called the Guru or Master as no one can get a degree in any college without being a registered student take a matriculation oath, and have a teacher who will take you through the college programme.

    Without a teacher you cannot graduate. So we get make a head way in our spiritual quest without a being a disciple and follow a Guru, Master or Teacher, that will take us in-dept through the spiritual path. It makes sense. And so if you don’t want to have a degree you don’t need a teacher simple.

    All this been said, practice is the answer and not the tons of the theory. If we do not practice what we have been told to do, one can’t verify the truth in the theory. So practice makes perfect. Everything in this course has been logically articulated and kept simple.

    I have been spiritually uplifted and therefore recommend this course to a true seeker of God.

    Thanks Ananda Team.

    I just want to say: T H A N K S
    I could write a lot, but I rather suggest everyone to make his own experience.
    This course, as well as all the other courses I participated, have (partly) mold the person I am now.
    You want to find happiness in that crazy world around you and advance spiritually? Here at Ananda-online you´re at the right place.

    Keep doing that great work @ Ananda.

    Both courses that I have taken through ananda so far have been informative, interesting, engaging, and as others have said the Instructors of each course are very supportive. In the Raja Yoga course I was appreciative of the feedback that Dyhan gave me on the quizzes I took . They were detailed and gave me a better understanding of the areas of my spiritual life that needed a little more attention. Dyhan’s lectures were also great because he shared his experiences on the spiritual path and how it wasn’t always easy and that we still go through struggles which helped me push through when I felt unmotivated at times. My connection to my Higher Power has deepened in an extraordinary way by using the techniques taught in Lessons of Meditation and the Raja Yoga course. I didn’t think simple exercises and meditation techniques could have such profound results, but they do. As long as your devoted to the spiritual path you will see the results!
    Thank you Ananda and all of the teachers that I’ve worked with thus far!

    I must say with all sincerity, this course – Raja Yoga – was truly tremendous! If you have doubts about what this class has to offer in terms both the depth and breadth of the yoga sciences, you will be most pleasantly surprised! This class provided more insight, more understanding, more perspective and greater appreciation for what Raja Yoga has to offer than might have been imagined. Dhyan is an excellent instructor.. and offered both wise and insightful advice at several points in my progression through the program. If you are looking to add depth in both your understanding and depth in your meditation practices, I heartily recommend this course. Like the preceding Meditation Course, I didn’t know what to expect but I received far more than I thought possible!!

  57. 5 out of 5

    This is a powerful course that I highly recommend to any serious spiritual seeker. It will inspire you, strengthen you, ignite your divine intelligence and open doors that will help lead you right up the heavenly ladder. The teacher (Dhyan) is very knowledgeable, authentic and his fervency and zeal for the subject is contagious. He puts a lot of energy into video recordings and feedback on quizzes, thereby helping you to dive deep into this rich well of information. This is the content you need, which will inspire you to continue on with your meditation practice. Ananda is amazing and it’s a blessing to find this divine connection to Yogananda and his teachings through this impressive community.

  58. 5 out of 5

    The course is charged with the powerful positive energy coming from both the materials and the teacher. Dhyan is the Chanel of light helping us with this incredible transformation on the way to our better self. It is simply how it feels. Dhyan thank you and respect for such incredible positive energy.

  59. 5 out of 5

    Wonderful class! Excellent material, and support from Dhyan. I worked full time and was able to complete the lesson objectives, so it’s very doable for anyone with work and family obligations. The love and care is clearly expressed by Dhyan in his email and quiz responses. This course has helped me realize the vast spiritual community we can be a part of if we choose to put the effort in. Excellent job Dhyan!!! Much love brother

  60. 5 out of 5

    This course was very inspiring and informative for me. The Instructor Dhyan embodies the timeless teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda through his kindness and helpfulness. It was a very nice experience to complete this course with like-minded people and to be part of the Ananda community.
    I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in this course and to dive deeper into the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.
    I highly recommend to join this course and be inspired.

    Be the change!!!

  61. 5 out of 5

    This course and every other course I did with Ananda has added to my development . Implementing the learnings into my daily life has made me calm and accepting. I appreciate the teachers for guiding me on my journey. I look forward to connecting to this source of knowledge again by doing another course for which I am ready.

  62. 5 out of 5

    Well there is a reason why everyone is giving this class 5 stars. From a technical perspective, however your prefer to learn auditory, visual, prefer to read they cover all grounds by having materials in books (PDF), Audio files and Streaming Webinars. You have access to your teacher (Dhyan for me) to ask questions through the forum and lots of reference material with weekly quizzes including specifics as well as essay. So again from how the courses operate is fantastic. Secondly I want to put out the passion, enthusiasm, energy and individual attention from Dhyan was incredible which as we know feeds your own energy to dive deeper. Not just answering questions but providing a sounding board and inspiration made this a joyous experience.
    Third the actual content. Most likely you took introduction to meditation and maybe you have already studied a bit about Raja Yoga, but this course goes into much greater detail. Probably commit to learning 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. You don’t know what you don’t know, and this course will support in the realization of this and make you then want to dive in deeper with many questions. Lastly the results, I can say this class has greatly strengthened my will to go down this path and have seen the fruits of this labor in a multitude of ways. Good luck finding your path to whomever is reading this (& Many blessings 😉

  63. 5 out of 5

    Great and valuable course.
    All the material is very valuable and the teacher is extremely implicated and suportive.
    The content is challenging and the pace high but the process worth it.
    I recommend without reserve this course

  64. 5 out of 5

    This course has really been a blessing. All I have learned is helping me a lot in my following my spiritual path. The instructor has been very supportive and his words always very inspiring and uplifting. I am so grateful for this experience!!!

  65. 5 out of 5

    I feel so grateful to have taken this course. The mediations and exercises were so helpful on my journey. The talks from Swami Kriyananda were powerful and inspiring. I thoroughly recommend this course and I look forward to beginning the next course in the series. Thank you Ananda !!

  66. 5 out of 5

    Taking this course made a big difference in my relationship with myself and my understanding and practice of Yogananda’s teachings. The material was dense but I was able to complete all the work while still managing the demands of daily life. It brought together many aspects of the spiritual path and their relevance for my growth. It helped me resolve inner conflicts about being on this path that is so different from mainstream society. The course provided guidance and a framework for dealing with spiritual challenges in my life currently. Dhyan Garcia-Davis gave encouraging talks, and devoted great time and attention to responding to essay questions. I felt held and supported through the process of confronting my shadow aspects and holding on to a positive view of myself and my progress even when I faced big spiritual challenges or felt that I didn’t do as well as I wished in a situation. He helped me judge myself less harshly, and see myself as a loving child of God who is making a sincere effort to grow past my negative, ego-protective habits. I’ve been involved with Ananda for 9 years, read many books, listened to many talks, done several retreats and a Kriya Yoga internship in an Ananda community, and thought that the material would be redundant and I might be bored. it was not and I was challenged, kept interested, and assisted in applying these teachings to my spiritual growth. I strongly recommend this course, and Dhyan as an instructor. It changed and inspired me, pulled me out of a low period in my life, gave me new direction and motivation to keep on keeping on with the practices that are most meaningful to me. I feel very grateful for this experience.

  67. 5 out of 5

    Great course! I came away with strengthened love and devotion. And I have a better understanding of “right living” to which I am now dedicated. The instructor Dhyan was very supportive.

  68. 5 out of 5

    My meditation practice has deepened after taking this course. I m becoming more aware of my mind patterns and consciously making improvements. I m feeling blessed to have a community and people to clarity doubts. I m at a point where I can leave house, the online course has been a blessing.

    Thanks
    Vidhya

  69. 5 out of 5

    This class is great! The course material comes from Swami Kriyananda’s book, The Art and Science of Raja Yoga – which has very in-depth coverage of the topic. The writings and recordings from Swami Kriyananda are inspiring and practical. The course instructor was Dhyan Garcia-Davis. What a blessing he is! I really appreciate all the time he spent supporting our success and providing thoughtful advice to my quiz responses.

    I highly recommend taking this Ananda class. It is the perfect next step after Lessons in Meditation.

  70. 5 out of 5

    I’m so happy to have found these lessons and Dhyan Davis is a true, living example of the teachings. I can honestly say that I’ve gained more tangible progress and confidence in both my physical and spiritual life with this path than I have in all previous years of seeking combined. These lessons and techniques match perfectly with my way of life and I feel like I’m on a wonderful, (yet often challenging:) battle against my inner enemies. It’s like being engaged in a delightful scavenger hunt of exploration and Self discovery in each moment. My doubts, fears and confusion are fading one-by-one and the understanding and connection to the Self is growing stronger and more powerful each day! I am so eager and ready to continue and can’t imagine my life without these Ananda lessons from the masters. I keep thinking how lucky I am to be alive and prepared right now in this era where all these teachings are available in digital format, allowing us to practice and train while still living in the world and going about our daily lives. Thank you!

  71. 5 out of 5

    This is really an inspiring course, very well built and a lot of tools are offered to guide thé students. The support of thé teacher is sublime, heartfelt expressions and compassionate words make this course all together blissfull. ❤️

  72. 5 out of 5

    This course was as expected-amazing. All the teachings for me are like building a fence so that we can meditate without bothering too much about the outside world. Dhyan has been excellent in providing guidance and answers. For me this course is the stepping stone to learn Kriya Yoga and not just a recreational activity. Paramhansa Yogananda’s teachings are practical in as much as worldly people can co relate to them and see why spirituality is so important for all of us.

  73. 5 out of 5

    This class was an inspiring journey of self reflection and devotion. The instructors are always available to clarify and offer support. Leave yourself enough time to absorb each chapter and especially the additional resource of Swami’s advice and guidance offered each week by recording.

  74. 5 out of 5

    I have had very much a feeling of ‘coming home’ through this course and the previous one. So much of what I have read or heard over the years, often from vastly different sources, (and often forgotten) seems to have come together. I remember reading once that a definition of good writing is that, when you come to the end of one paragraph, the questions in your mind are answered in the next paragraph. So it has been with these courses, that what I was wondering about was explained in the next lesson. I have been very impressed by the simplicity and clarity of the teachings, but also the range of cover from basic meditation techniques, which attracted me in the first place, to deeply philosophical explanations of the fundamental origins of the world (also simply and clearly expressed).
    Having begun by wanting to improve my meditations, I have found this course has deepened my experience and understanding of meditation and brought to the forefront the need to spend more time and energy on spiritual practice. I have no hesitation in recommending it very highly to anyone seeking to follow the spiritual path.

  75. 5 out of 5

    My eyes have been opened. Many thanks and blessings to everyone at Ananda and especially to Dhyan for sharing true teachings and revelations to seeking souls.

  76. 5 out of 5

    When I was taking this course, my life went through many changes, it made me very busy and frustrated, almost wanted to quit this course due to not enough time to learn. After two weeks delay of my Quiz, I allocated whole day to catch up. When I was going through the reading and writing my delayed quiz, I gain the high energy from the reading material. I reflected a lot on my life experience with the learning material, and it’s perfect. I was able to regain my inner strength and will power to deal with the life challenges. Special thanks to teacher Dhyan, his feedback and email to me had provided me with very positive energy. He helped me to see the challenges I was facing was good learning material for me to achieve another height of the spiritual development. I am very happy I didn’t quit in the middle of the course. I will go for the third one now.

  77. 5 out of 5

    I once again have benefited deeply from the teachings and personalized guidance of another on-line Ananda class! It was a perfect follow up to lessons in meditations. Even if it is an overview of the whole of raja yoga both the written materials and audios are great at sharing its essences and was exactly what I needed!
    I also took advantage of the help offered by Dhyan and asked questions as they came up. His kindness and knowledgeable answers were greatly appreciated! I would encourage anybody who has any questions to not hesitate and ask them, because it helps to the clarification you seek and Dhyan is a a beautiful soul quite able to help you in this area!

  78. 5 out of 5

    Thank you for this wonderful course ! I really loved it to dive deep into the theoretical part, as well as into the practical part.
    This had a transformational effect on my daily attitude towards myself aswel as towards others.
    One of the signs I remarked is that I’m becoming more kind. My character is to be “passionated” by what I’m doing, to be “intense”, and so a consequence of that is that I am sometimes also “intense” in my reactions when things are not going like I (ego) want, and then I become like we call it “agressif” but not in a bad way. Well that kind of reactions I have less, and together with the fact that I become more “kind”, I become also more patient (patience is something that I didn’t had at all). So thank you for this beautiful adventure together, and also for the “eye-opening” (little pun) guidance during the whole journey.

  79. 5 out of 5

    Yoga will never be the same — after years of tiptoeing around the edges – practicing hatha yoga, meditation, off and on — I discovered in this course the cornerstone, the “backbone” of yoga, a world so deep and large and high that in any other context, I am not sure I would have undertaken the journey. This course, though, is accessible and has opened a new world to me, invited me on a path which I have long been seeking in the deep respect of my soul, for which I am ever grateful. The readings are dense but illuminating. And Dhyan has been a good shepherd with great intuition, whose webinars seemed to speak to the very questions about the path, about the readings, that were in my mind at the time (despite the thousands of kilometers that separate us). I am ever grateful for the course, for Dhyan’s honest, gentle wisdom and I will continue on the path that Ananda offers now, with humble and joyful anticipation.

  80. 5 out of 5

    Really enjoying the whole Kriya Yoga process, glad I signed up!

  81. 5 out of 5

    All online courses with Ananda were profound and enriching experiences.
    In particular, this course of Raja Yoga was a deep experience of spiritual growth.
    The course is very well organized and all material provided: texts, audios, videos, as well as the live seminars and morning meditations are outstanding. Dhyan has been exceptional in guiding us in this spiritual journey. We have been practicing yoga and meditation for many years but with Ananada and this course in particular, our spiritual life has taken a sharp turn. The way the teachings are conveyed renders them easy to apply to our daily life and so, opens the way to extremely enriching deep experiences of Masters’ guidance.

    Raja Yoga as offered online with Ananda has been such a blessing that has surpassed every expectation. It turned what could easily have been a merely intellectual exploration into an experiential one by providing a wonderful structure, gentle support, and energy to the teachings and practices. It was for me a direct connection to this beautiful lineage of Enlighened Masters who have filled my heart with music and only just begun to help me awaken the eternal spring of joy, gratitude, devotion, and immeasurable love within. Don’t hesitate to open to the profound gift of this offering.

  83. 5 out of 5

    This is the second Ananda online course I’ve taken with Dhyan and I’ve found him to be consistently supportive , accessible and ready to help with any personal or technical issue. For those wish to delve deep into the depth and breadth of Raja Yoga, I doubt you’ll find a more clear or concise course. I’ve very grateful to haveaccess to these wonderful online teachings and look forward to taking my next step on the path of Kriya Yoga ~ Namaste

  84. 5 out of 5

    This course is one of the most profound experiences in my life. Is not just a dry philosophy course but a education for life. The clear and strength forward approach of Swamiji is a blessing. The way the information is presented is very clear. And brother Dhyan makes the most obscure topics clear and easy to understand. The meditations are wonderful to add.
    This course will give you tools to deepen your practice and tackle life with an actively calm attitude. The principles of raja yoga are the pinnacle of yogic though and the aim of yoga is presented in this course and made me feel is within anyone’s grasp. After all we are enlightenment we just have to imprime our knowing. I feel closer to God, Guru and Ananda through this course.

  85. 5 out of 5

    An awesome course to get to know the depth of yoga and what it means to live the spiritual path. This stuff just fascinates me! Dhyan did a fantastic job guiding us throughout the course 🙂 Thank you Dhyan!

  86. 5 out of 5

    I truly feel that I was led by a God to the study of Raja Yoga. I live in rural America where it is unlikely that I would have found this beautiful path. In this class I’ve been given practical as well as well as mystical techniques to undeniably commune with God. This has fulfilled a long held yearning. From these practices I am gaining strength and steadiness! And a deeper understanding of who I am, and what my relationship to God is and can be.

    Dhyan has been a patient, empathic guide through this class and was the exact person I needed to give me courage to continue when I thought my busy mind would not let me. Now I have a practice! Thanks God!

  87. 5 out of 5

    The Ananda on-line courses keep surprising me with how effective and personal the on-line study can be. The reading and audio/visual assignments, weekly webinars, and a seemingly 24-access to support one’s study are just wonderful in their scope of knowledge and heart. My life keeps expanding with this interaction of the community, fellow participants, and the instructor(s).

  88. 5 out of 5

    Great course! Many insights, a lot of awareness, many behavioral patterns coming out of the surface, a lot of changes for the better, a lot of joy, a great teacher!

  89. 5 out of 5

    Excellent, excellent, excellent… This course was absolutely amazing! The level of knowledge and wisdom given through the literature as well as the teacher Dhyan was life changing. I have to compliment the way in which the lessons are given. The flow is so east to follow and the written lessons are exact and easy to inner stand. Following up with the lessons with the audio of Swami was a brilliant idea. The Ananda School gives you an array of different avenues to make sure you are grasping each lesson thoroughly and in every way you can. Now on to the teacher Dhyan, what can you say about someone who is SELFELESS and ALWAYS has a willing heart to help in anyway that he can. I apprecialove him so much for his patience and guidance. Ever attentive when he noticed that I wasn’t participating in the way I normally do and he contacted me immediately to make sure that all was well. He never lost faith in me and always kept me motivated. There are really no words to express my gratitude. I only can send him and his family an abundance of Love and Light. Thank you so much for helping me on my journey, my gratitude is endless! Om Shanti

    I highly recommend the Raja Yoga course. The course is well written with weekly lessons to illustrate the teachings. The course is augmented with audio recordings from great masters and from the instructors at Ananada. Personally, I felt this course helped to deepen my meditative/spiritual practice. Dhyana’s comments were insightful, wise, and supportive. Another outstanding online course offered by Ananda community.

  91. 5 out of 5

    I continue to be amazed about the depths of the experience in all Ananda online courses. Certainly, this course on Raja Yoga has been full of wisdom, giving me a much greater understanding of both the ancient teachings of Yoga and the new expression that Paramhansa Yogananda gave to them. But much more than that, the course has been an experience of spiritual growth. Because Ananda, as I have experienced it, is obviously not only about teaching the techniques and philosophy but primarily about giving you everything you need to grow. Our teacher Dhyan went to great lengths to give very individual feedback, and he helped me tremendously with every little question I had. But above all, he gave me a lot of inspiration and joy – which made me think: Ok, we are all in this together as friends, helping each other, sharing our experiences, caring for the spiritual welfare of our sisters and brothers. And this is truly invaluable!

    I came to this course at just the right time in my spiritual development. This experience has brought me through a journey that has sometimes been difficult, often reassuring and always enlightening. There was much individualized support given by the instructor which helped my understanding. Ananda Church of Self-Realiztion is a place, physically and spiritually, of loving guidance. Remember always, as I strive to do, that we are drawn here for a deep purpose. This is true whether you’ve been connected to Ananda for years or for a moment. We are loved.

  93. 5 out of 5

    If you are considering being a part of this class in Raja Yoga, I recommend it highly. The lessons, materials and insights are nothing short of priceless. Wherever you may be on your journey there are teachings within that will resonate with you deeply, as they did with me. Swami Kriyananda’s writings and lectured classes were reviewed and discussed with great wisdom and love by instructor Dhyan.

    Very thankful to have been a part of this course. I am able to participate in the course whenever there are open moments in my life, and there was enough to keep me growing and learning, but not too much to interfere with obligations, jobs, responsibilities, etc. I appreciated connecting with Brother Dyhan, the teacher, and being free to discuss anything. This course went a little further in depth and taught me many more breathing techniques and meditation postures. I look forward to further spiritual adventuring since finding Master Yogananda’s Autobiography one year ago. Blessing to all!

    Where can we learn about our purpose in life? And, more importantly, where can we learn HOW to actually achieve this purpose? The joy that we find in this world is temporary and unfulfilling. The current state of our world is in chaos and people are filled with deep emotional pain and suffering. One only needs to turn on the news.

    What a sense of relief that Ananda – and in particular this course – presents. Before Ananda, I believed that God existed and that we needed to cultivate our relationship with Him to find joy. But I was entirely lost as to how to develop this relationship and get closer to Him. It seemed that the more I tried, the farther I got. Ananda and this Raja Yoga course presents the student (or devotee) with the essential tools (and weapons) to fight the “good fight” and become soldiers of the light. What other way can we find joy?

    Swami Kriyananda provides the Raja Yoga teachings in a simple but electric way. Dhyan Garcia-Davis helped me understand the teachings in a more clearer, practical and formidable way. Every question that I had, Dhyan was able to answer with an impressive understanding. His wisdom was just natural. I was very comfortable speaking with him and sharing my personal experience with him. He inspired me to become the person that I really want to be.

    Anyone who takes this course, not only will learn about the ancient teachings of Raja Yoga, but more importantly, will develop a deep relationship with Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda, which will take the student (or devotee) into different and higher levels of joy that he or she is unable to reach by himself or herself. What this course really offers, in other words, is Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda’s grace. As the Bible states, “But to all who did receive him, he gave the right to become children of God.”

    We need to “receive” God’s grace and, I sincerely believe that Master Yogananda and Swamiji Kriyananda, are emissaries for this grace. Through Ananda – and courses like these – we can find the Eternal Joy that we are all seeking. And if it’s not in our destiny to find it in this lifetime, then we can certainly make a great leap towards it.

    Take this course – it will change your life!

    This class was a blessing. My practice has improved and progressed significantly.

  97. 5 out of 5

    Thank you to our teachers! Your sacred and loving approach to your students is remarkable and very welcome. I am learning more and more. I am a long-time meditator, but last year I had felt stuck. It was similar to what Swami Kriyananda talks about when he questioned everything and watched himself critically, but found himself in a place he hadn’t been. I was told about Raja Yoga some time ago and made an attempt in my readings, then found myself looking online more
    and was led to these courses. My heart chakra is opening again and I am happier and mellower. My meditations have become deeper and greatly uplifting. I feel
    more centered. I read and reread the book and the lessons with devotion and eagerness to hear and experience more. I am enthralled by this great lineage.
    Thank you for your seva. Thank you for your kind instruction. With great love, Rose Ghilardi

    I am truly blessed to be a learning the Raja Yoga. This course is awesome, a lot of questions in my life were answered through this course.
    Thank you.

    Thank you for the commitment and inspiration on the path of Raja Yoga, which prepares the student for the next step to Kriya Yoga. My practice has deepened with this course and looking forward to the next step.

    This course was simply excellent. The book was both substantive and challenging. Its fine organization drew one through progressively deeper insights and vistas. I gained a tremendous amount from the readings, breathing exercises and meditations. I experienced significant change in my awareness of mental moods, and my ability to alter these habits with breathing and reflective meditation. My attachment to ego is certainly less than at the beginning of the course. Maria and Dhyan were superb instructors, and both offered thoughtful and insightful responses to the questions I asked throughout the course. Their support and love for all of us was palpable. I leave this five-star course quite inspired to continue and deepen the spiritual quest for inner realization so beautifully outlined by the instructors, as well as the many others in the Ananda Community. ‘Heartfelt thanks.

  101. 5 out of 5

    The skill and love displayed by the teacher of this course has been an inspiration to me. The master Jesus tells us by their deeds you will know them. The lessons are skillfully put together in a way where the students can bring them together to experience Dhana for themselves. Thankyou

  102. 5 out of 5

    I am no longer the same man as I was when I began this course. There has been a minor transformation. I am no longer at the mercy of entrenched mental and emotional patterns (ego). The knowledge, exercises, and meditations, have clarified my outlook on life. This is an ongoing process and a journey I look forward to. The tools I have learned in this course have given me the ability to move forward instead of reacting to the curves life send my way. My ego is being subjugated by my efforts and desire to merge with divine consciousness.

  103. 5 out of 5

    I can’t say enough how much this whole discovery of Ananda and the Raja Yoga Course have meant to me.

    When I reached a point in my life where I felt I was lost and had no direction, I was fortunate enough to discover Ananda Village and it’s teachings which have given me so much hope. A rebirth in every sense. And being able to share it with so many like minded, wonderful people is an added pleasure.
    Much Love to all of you who teach, and those like me who are here to learn and discover a path to a better life.
    I look forward to the next level in the path to Kriya Yoga.
