(Sanskrit अनागामिन्) "not returning." In Pail, the term is sakadagami. A term used by the Buddha Shakyamuni when he described four levels or degrees of attainment. Anagamin is the third degree. In Sutrayana (Foundational Path) of Buddhism, anagamin is understood in a exoteric manner and each school has its own way of applying the term. In esotericism, anagamin is very specific: it refers to those who have completed the third degree of Major Mysteries, the third of the seven serpents of Kundalini / Candali.
