Brahmachari Sagar has served Ananda as a monk for almost seven years. He serves as a key member of Ananda’s work in India and has helped on several fronts: as a member of Ananda’s Kriya Yoga community in Pune, as a teacher and counselor to students, and overseer for Ananda India’s Online Fundraising efforts. He also led Ananda’s work in Mumbai for about five years. Born in a family of practicing kriya-yogis, Sagar read Paramhansa Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi at a young age, an influence that waxed ever stronger as the years passed and culminated in his decision to dedicate his life to serving Yogananda’s mission. Sagar currently resides at Ananda Village, California and is a part of Ananda’s Online Ministry.
