Many of you are now delving into the more advanced Vedangas ( limbs of the Vedas). The word ‘tantra’ has been sweeping the western world in recent years, and it appears to be providing individuals with inherent Dakini inclinations the Blanche to go public by the best astrologer in Kolkata.
The beauty of Vedic learning is that it accommodates all seekers, although it would be beneficial for the general public to realize that the term “tantra” refers to anything other than sex.
I’d want to introduce the notion of siddhis in this giving. Sanskrit for “perfection,” “accomplishment,” and “attainment.” Sanskrit term for someone who has achieved siddhi powers. Sanskrit for “perfect consciousness.” Chauth: Sanskrit, pure consciousness. Siddhis are superhuman magical powers that are attained through ‘sadhana’ or the yoga/mediation discipline.
Anima: reducing one’s body to the size of an atom
Mahima: expanding one’s body to an infinitely large size
Garima: making one’s body extremely heavy
Laghima: making one’s body weightless
Prapti: unrestricted access to all places
Prakamya: unrestricted achievement of desire
Istva: possessing absolute lordship
Vastva: the power to subjugate all
PANCHA SIDDHIS OF YOGA AND MEDITATION:
Ari-Kala: Jonathan: knowing the past, present, and future
- Advandvam: tolerance of heat, cold and other dualities
- para Citta adi abhinaya: knowing the minds of others
- Agni Sarka Ambu viṣa pratiṣṭambhaḥ: checking the influence of fire, sun, water, poison
- Aparajayah: remaining unconquered by others “In the Bhagavata Purana, Lord Krishna describes the ten secondary siddhis as anurmi-mattvam: Being undisturbed by the best astrologer in India hunger, thirst, and other bodily appetite dūra-sravaṇa: Hearing things far away dura-darsanam: Seeing things far away manaḥ-javah: Moving the body wherever thought goes (teleportation/astral projection) kama-rupa: Assuming any form desired para-kaya pravesanam: Entering the bodies of others sva-Chanda mṛtyuh.
Addhyyan: knowledge gained through the study of the Vedas and other standard ancillary texts, Suhritprapti: knowledge gained from a kind-hearted person, while engaged in the spread of knowledge Daan: knowledge gained regardless of one’s own needs while attending to the requirements of those engaged in the search of the highest truth, Aadhyaatmik dukkha-haan: freedom from pain, disappointment, etc. that may arise due to lack of spiritual, metaphysical, mystic knowledge and experience, Aadhibhautik dukkha-haan: freedom from pain, etc. arising from possessing and being attached to various materialistic gains, Aadhidaivik dukkha-haan: freedom from pain, etc. caused by fate or due to reliance on fate, The attainment of these eight siddhis renders one no longer in a painful state of ignorance but in possession of greater knowledge and experience of bliss. Samkhya aims to eliminate all kinds of physical and mental pains and to receive liberation. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras In Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras IV.1 it is stated (rendered insist): janma auṣadhi mantra tapaḥ samadhijaḥ siddhayaḥ In translation: Accomplishments may be attained through birth, the use of herbs, incantations, self-discipline or samadhi.
Theory to Test Yogi Superpowers (Siddhis):
There is a theory of objective truth, as Karl Popper put it, “This doctrine implies that we may seek for truth, for objective truth, though more often than not we may miss it by a wide margin. And it implies that if we respect truth, we must search for it by persistently searching for our errors by indefatigable rational criticism, and self-criticism”.
When examining any truth claims it may be useful to compare objective or rational theories of truth with subjective or personal (psychological) theories of truth.
The Masters who attain these powers, often do so through lifetimes of practice. They or even you may come into this lifetime with some of these powers developed. This is a gift to be honored and respected, not thrown about in blatant display.
There are countless stories of those who have used their powers connected to the ego and have instantly lost their abilities, according to the best astrologer in India. Important to know and understand is that all those souls who work to develop such powers are not living in the sattvic place; there are also those with powers who live on the dark side.
