(Sanskrit सकृदागामिन्) "returning only once again i.e. being re-born, once-returner." In Pail, the term is sakadagami. A term used by the Buddha Shakyamuni when he described four levels or degrees of attainment. Sakridagamin is the second degree. In Sutrayana (Foundational Path) of Buddhism, sakridagamin is understood in a exoteric manner and each school has its own way of applying the term. In esotericism, sakridagamin is very specific: it refers to those who have completed the second degree of Major Mysteries, the second of the seven serpents of Kundalini / Candali.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Tremendous is the effort and the vigilance that is needed from second to second, from moment to moment, in order to not fall into illusions. One minute of unawareness is enough for the mind to be already dreaming about something else, distracting it from the job or deed that we are living at the moment."
