635. Devotee Welcomed by Celestials

When devotee reaches the World of Siva
He shall be received by Celestial throngs,
"Hail! Here comes our Golden Lord",
Thus shall they welcome;
And he in rapturous pleasures shall revel.

Infinite is the Lord's Grace
He elevates His devotees unto Indra,
The Lord of Celestials;
And he shall be received,
In pomp and honour
Drums beating and pipes playing,
All glory and bliss upon him raining.

633. Devotees Reach World of Siva

Hold fast unto His Feet,
Adore them with love,
Sing His praise,
Study His Sacred Lore,
Constantly think of Him;
You shall reach the World of Siva,
Received in full regalia
By the sacred Rishi concourse.

632. Lord's Devotees Reach Abode of Gods

They who seek Lord
Of the matted locks bedecked with flowers
Will sure reach the Abode of Gods;
"What this devotee of mine seeks,
That I grant."
Thus blesses the Lord
That mounts the Bull
And dances to His Consort's delight.

631. Samadhi Transcends Siddhis

To those who are in Samadhi
Many the Yogas that come of themselves
And the Siddhis eight that come unsought;
But, Samadhi none is for those who walk with God
Samadhi none is for those who become one is God.

630. Samadhi Leads to Worship by Gods

He stood as the Peerless pillar of Light;
When Jiva in Samadhi merges in Him,
Brahma that creates
And Vishnu of the ocean-hue,
Both stand adoring him.

629. Tranquility in Samadhi

Samadhi attained, Siva is attained;
Sakti too will be caught in its fold;
Distracting passions will be dispelled;
in equanimity perfect,
Like unto a balance.
Will be the mind
All this, for those who in Samadhi sleep.

626. In Samadhi, Oneness in God is Attained

He is Our Own
He is the Primal One
He taught the Vedas Four
He is the light that glows within the purest gold
They adored Him in love
They approached Him all desires devoid
All climbed the Mystic Tree High;
Their breath halted in Samadhi
They with him became One

620. In Samadhi Mano-Laya is Reached

Where there is mind absorption,
There life none is;
Where there is no mind absorption,
There life's breath is;
They who, in rapture, sit in mind absorption
Are verily fixed in Yoga of absorption.

618. Samadhi is the Final Goal of Ashtanga Yoga

Samadhi is end of yama and the rest,
Samadhi is consummation of Siddhis eight;
Who persevere in the path from yama to the end
Will in the end Samadhi attain.

615. Immortality Through Dhyana Yoga

Uprooting the gunas three
He who controls breath in Muladhara
And courses it alternate
Through nadi left and right,
In time measure prescribed
Will be immortal made
By Him that is King of Beings Heavenly.

611. The Way to Ascension to Space Lies through Meditation

The mystic bed-chamber is day-light eternal
No darkness invades;
There is a way
This body to fire-chamber consigned not be,
The light of this knowledge
Is by meditation prolonged;
In the lunar region
Knows not end of Light ever.

The breath within rises
And wanders as it lasts ;
Control that and purify within;
Then shall your limbs glow red,
Your hair turn dark
And God within shall leave you never.

Inhalation, Exhalation, and Retention both ways,
The Science of Breath thus consisting
They know not;
They who know the Science of Breath
Are destined to spurn the God of Death.

Wherever you be, there control breath
The body then will perish not.

Well may you become a triumphant lord
With the conch of victory,

If you control the breath within,
However old your body,
Young and crystal-hard it turns
And with the goodly Guru's benign Grace,
Well may you become lighter than air.

567. Breathe Control Yields Life-Nectar

Let Prana merge in Mind
And together the two be stilled
Then no more shall birth and death be;
Therefore, learn to direct breath
In streams alternating left and right;
Then shall you taste the nectar of life.

THE SKY HUNTER

Keep
Ringing the bell,
Playing the tamboura, calling for Him

For you
Have touched something holy inside
With your spirit-body
And now your eyes look broken
Without His sacred presence near.

The heart is like that: blessed and ruined
Once it has known
Divine beauty,

Then,
It becomes a restless sky hunter.

The lover keeps circling in their being
Their sweetest moments
With God

Needing to kiss
His face
Again.

Dalai Lama: Broadly speaking, although there are some differences, I think Buddhist philosophy and Quantum Mechanics can shake hands on their view of the world. We can see in these great examples the fruits of human thinking. Regardless of the admiration we feel for these great thinkers, we should not lose sight of the fact that they were human beings just as we are.

R.C. Henry, Professor of Physics of Physics and Astronomy at John Hopkins University, explains things further:

A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.

From " Living with the Himalayan Masters " :

I had never before seen a man who could sit still without blinking his eyelids for eight to ten hours, but this adept was very unusual. He levitated two and a half feet during his meditations. We measured this with a string, which was later measured by a foot rule. I would like to make it clear, though, as I have already told you, that I don’t consider levitation to be a spiritual practice. It is an advanced practice of pranayama with application of bandeaus (locks). One who knows about the relationship between mass and weight understands that it is possible to levitate, but only after long practice. . .

He (also) had the power to transform matter into different forms, like changing a rock into a sugar cube. One after another the next morning he did many such things. He told me to touch the sand – and the grains of sand turned into almonds and cashews. I had heard of this science before and knew its basic principles, but I had hardly believed such stories. I did not explore this field, but I am fully acquainted with the governing laws of science.
