Levitation—it is possible? Can humans really leave the ground through the power of the mind alone? How can this extraordinary defiance of gravitational force be induced at will? These are some of the questions answered in this epoch-making book, the first ever to lay bare the occult meditational techniques by which the mind can lift the body off the ground. The secrets of levitation are centuries old, but they have remained in the hands of a few adepts—until now. This book gives you the facts, the history, the controversies, the theories, and, above all, the techniques—everything, in fact, you should know about levitation. Reading this book could make the impossible astoundingly real. This is the first comprehensive manual for transcending gravity through meditational techniques.
In the first stage the body of the yogi begins to perspire. In the second stage, there takes place the trembling of the body; in the third, the jumping about like a frog; and when the practice becomes greater, the adept walks in the air.
Some of the other possible Siddhi techniques, besides levitation, that Maharishi Pantanjali mentions in his Yoga Sutras 2500 years ago are: knowledge of the past and the future; understanding the languages of all living beings; knowledge of previous lifetimes; knowledge of other men’s minds (make your mind receptive to impressions from other minds); invisibility, friendliness, compassion, joy, gaining unlimited strength (the strength of an elephant); knowledge of all the worlds, the system of the stars; the movement of the stars; gaining knowledge of the system of the body; overcoming hunger & thirst, stillness; to ‘see the siddhas’; to know one’s own mind; to know all things; to enter another persons body; to become radiant; and to gain supernormal hearing together with other supernormal senses.
