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.

'I was fortunate to have witnessed such a case during the Kumbha Mela at Allahabad. During this time I was staying in a garden house situated on a bank of the holy Ganges. Early one morning at about three o’clock I was informed that Vinay Maharaja had decided to cast off his body punctually at four-thirty. This swami was a student of my master. I immediately rushed to the hut where he was staying. There he talked to me for half an hour, discussing the higher practices of Yoga-Vedanta. There were six other swamis sitting around him. Exactly at four-thirty, after explaining the technique of voluntarily casting off the body, he bade goodbye to us, saying, “God bless you; we’ll meet on the other side.” Then he was silent. He closed his eyes and became still. We all heard the sound “tic” come from his skull. This was the sound of cracking the skull. This process is called casting off the body through Brahmarandhra. We later immersed his body in the Ganges. There have been many such occasions when I
witnessed a yogi casting off the body consciously.

Modern man knows how to eat, talk, wear clothes, and live in society. He also knows how to prepare the expectant mother to give a safe birth, and has discovered the painless method of labor. But modern man has not yet learned the techniques of casting off the body voluntarily and joyfully. During the time of death he becomes miserable and experiences many psychological pains. Our modern society, though highly evolved technologically, is still ignorant of the many mysteries of life and death. Modern man has not yet discovered the resources which are already within him'.

The first step toward enlightenment is to learn to follow the conscience and not the mind.

We must not create a wall between our worldly and spiritual lives. People disorganized in their worldly life search for spiritual wisdom in seclusion; whereas, if organized properly, they can have all the means and resources that are of utmost importance for spiritual enlightenment. The purpose of human life is to make the best use of the resources that nature or God has given us.

Learn to give to each other, and then slowly that learning will expand to the whole universe. One day you will feel that the whole universe is your family, and you are one of the members of that family.

If you are suffering, I am suffering, though I am not aware of it. How can I live without suffering? If my foot is suffering, definitely my whole being is suffering. We are all limbs of one huge, one great prajapati (being)—the whole universe. How can we live happily? Let us learn not to hoard, but just to give. To whom? Not to strangers. I’m not telling you something impractical. Give to those with whom you live.

All things happen in the inner world long before they happen outside. If you concentrate and watch silently, you can know what is going to happen to you in the future, but usually your mind remains busy in the material world. Everything happens in the subtle world long before it takes place externally.

The purpose of fear is to lead you to question and understand why you have that fear in the first place. As you examine your fears, you will learn that all your fears are somehow false and based on misunderstandings. There is no truth or reality to your fears. Many fears remain buried within you, and you never really examine them, so you remain at their mercy.

In yoga knowledge is not the result of strain. It emerges from consistant practice. Practice promotes constant awareness. With attention, you can enjoy the world
