  1. Truth is highest value and here is how you can learn to really see it


    I was always interested in why some people are happier, more successful, just seams that everything comes so easy to them and why others are struggling even though the circumstances are very similar.

    Psychological approach is on track of the answer because it looks beyond dogmatic systems that most of us are raised in – so what I have learned here that is so different? In comparison with psychology that is based on 3 parameters (subconsciousness, consciousness, superconsciousness) in Vedic Astrology there are 33 basic parameters (Grahas, signs and houses) and it is just a beginning of a system that really brings light on what is going on!
    Sam’s Sadasiva approach is so great because it really teaches you those basics through sophisticated system that is so natural – because we already “know” all that, we know the energies that we are made of. So, it is not a life coaching course, but when you dive in you will really learn the essence of all life coach promises such as – motivation, hope, flow, glow, success, happiness and so much more! I’m so thankful that I came across it 9 months ago, it was really one of the best decisions of my life, Thank you Sadasiva!

  2. Loving It!


    I’m just 20% through the course, but I’m so appreciating the deep insights into Vedic thinking, connecting the planets and houses through the gunas, and the installation of consistent principles for understanding the planets and their “jobs”. I really look forward to the lessons each week. On a side note, I’ve been listening to your teachings online since 2006 when I moved to Korea during my Rahu dasha. I needed to make sense of the karma that brought me so far away from home. I found it interesting that I started learning Ayurveda and eventually teaching dina charya habits online not long after I decided to leave Korea and make my way back to North America. That shift came when I moved into my Jupiter Dasha. All the insights you gave from your free youtube videos gave me comfort and courage for the big changes in my life. I’m glad that I’m not snacking on your lessons anymore. I’m doing the work to learn the system so I can do readings for others. So thanks for being there all those years online posting your work. I’m super delighted to finally be in your course. ~Heather Pilon

  3. So Thankful I Did This


    Even if you never practice astrology with others or become an astrologer, doing this course is a powerful gift that you can give yourself. As Sam often says, the ancient texts say that the learned should have a knowledge of astrology… we are supposed to know and learn about it at least on a basic level. And doing so exposes you to all of the rich philosophy and worldview that underlies it, that helps makes sense of life and illuminate the higher meaning and purpose behind it and all of the joys and difficulties it can bring.

    Sam teaches very well and the course is well-organized. And having it be always available to you to go back and review, is invaluable. I’m currently going through it a second time and getting just as much out of it as I learn things more in-depth and pick up on things I missed the first time. One of my favorite things about it is how nuanced and balanced it is; nothing is “good” or “bad”, everything is what it is and shows what it shows, everything has the potential to bring greatness, ease, hardship and difficulty. Definitely highly recommend.

  4. 5

    A very good course.
    I really liked the format.
    Sam is a great teacher

  5. Review Level 1


    Great learning of Fundamentals! The Program makes you understand the essence of the concepts by forcing you to write the Home assignments in one word, one sentence or two sentences!
    The concepts of Combust and Retrograde planets and Rahu and Ketu are explained in a way no one does! Will help you to understand the purpose of your life. I wish I had joined it when I was young ( I am now 70+)!
    The videos are so lively that you would love to listen to them again and again. The Manuals provide a great reading material- concise with depth. You come across Sattwic teachers like Sam only by grace of God in your life to learn this divine science! Such a soul uplifting experience beyond words!
    Thanks so much for teaching this divine science- Rev Sam Sir!
    With all respects!

  6. Knowledge, Mastery and Confidence


    My level of knowledge upon beginning this course was basic at best. I had watched some of Sam’s video’s and took a couple of online classes. ( very 3rd house as i was to come to learn. I didn’t have a background in yoga or astrology, and so I was concerned if I “knew enough to even begin”. I’m sure others thinking about taking the class have the same concerns.
    But I wanted to learn, and so I signed up.
    The modules really are laid out in a very straightforward and sensible order. Skills and knowledge build upon each other. There are handouts to be printed for each module . And there are audio tapes that match the classes if you want to listen. The homework reinforces the skills, the forum lets you ask questions and the monthly in person calls with Sam are priceless in value.
    And so I studied and I learned and I progressed through the material. And my 3rd house of interest turned into a 5th house of something to love and want to nourish. ( I didn’t know any of this before i took the class, but now…)
    As i progressed through the course, i noticed a few other things
    – i understood myself better… why i do what i do
    – I understand others better – why they do what they do
    – My confidence in myself, my ability to attain a new goal and dream, a future direction…
    all from this course

    Then came the certification exam. It was very fair, yet a challenge , and really tested if one had learned the material. After completing the test, I felt a real sense of accomplishment.
    And then the moment of truth…. i can now say

    I am a graduate of Level 1 Certification and I can proceed to level 2.

    If i can do it, you can too.

    Thank you Sam for this wonderful course and all the bonus material. I have learned and grown and look forward to the next chapter.

  7. just do it!


    I’ve tried to learn vedic astrology before, but it wasn’t until taking this course that it is finally making sense. The more I learn, and the more I understand the depths and complexities of this subject, the more appreciation and gratitude i have that someone not only took the time to put everything together in such a comprehensible way, but also tirelessly puts it out there for anyone and everyone willing to listen. And literally, anyone and everyone should. I hope the day will come when Vedic astrology is a mandatory subject. I don’t see how anyone can really learn it and not be a more loving and compassionate human being (among other things). I’d say whatever reason you have for considering this course….stop considering, and just do it 🙂

  8. Very thorough course!


    Sam is very detailed and thorough in this course. You get to learn the foundations of Vedic thought before delving into planets, signs and houses. He packs a lot of information into each lesson, so if you listen to them again you’ll pick up on something new.
    I highly recommend his course, you will not find something so straightforward and as well put together as this.

  9. Enlightening experience


    I’m a Level 1 ​G​raduate. I​’ve been studying Vedic astrology ​for many years on my own and also with a few other teachers but this ​Certification ​Course finally put every bits and pieces ​together for me. ​​The course is very well structured​ and organized, easy to follow and ​having an opportunity to be a part of the community of like minded ​people was a nice bonus. All in all, it was an enlightening experience! Sam is a brilliant teacher and his dedication is such an inspiration​!
    Thank you.

  10. Level 1 Certificate Course Review


    The level 1 course was well designed, clear, and pragmatic. I found the examples to be straightforward and I could immediately utilize the knowledge by looking at my own chart, as well as others. I really enjoyed the structure as well, from the beginning of Vedic principles and how those principles frame the way that we view the planets, signs, houses, and constellations. I’m really grateful to have learned Jyotish in this way, and the online class meet ups were great as well. I highly recommend this course for anyone that is looking to dive deeper into the study and practice of Jyotish.
