Supernatural Powers and Indian Yogis in the Himalayas

Updated on September 3, 2017
SRICHAKRA
SRICHAKRA

Indian yogis with powers :

Great epic Ramayana of India gives us an idea of how Hanuman exhibited his supernatural powers. He was a Brahamachari (celibate) with self-control, a strong man with unlimited powers, an unmatched scholar and a great devotee of Lord Sriramchandra. Even to this day, people in India chant the Hanuman chalisa everyday to get rid of the evil. Daily chant of this mantra helps them overcome all sorts of trouble they face in life. Hanuman was granted the boon to stay alive on earth as long as Lord Ram's name was chanted. He is a chiranjeevi(immortal) as well as Brahmachari. He got the divine knowledge of vedas and the shastras from Sun god himself. He appears in places where Ramayan discourses are offered to the community.

Siddhi and Sadhanas :

Siddhis are the gained Supernatural powers, Sadhana is the path of attaining of the siddhi which a Sadhak (Person who wants to gain powers) involves in his routine life.

Hanuman had almost all the Supernatural powers or Siddhis. He is a Chiranjeevi(man who has no death), according to indian epics Ramayan and Mahabharatha. He is still existing but unseen by the people of modern world.

Hanuman Now & Then

Famous Himalayan Mountain range :

Himalayas, the famous mountain range at the north of India is also a sacred place for many. In Kailas parvath, it is said that Lord Shiva is residing. There are many yogis still meditating in the caves of Himalayas. They are totally isolated from the modern world. They have the power to resist extreme weather conditions of the Himalayas.

Pantajali and the siddhis :

Patanjali, a sage of ancient times wrote in his scriptures about the eight siddhis, what we call supernatural powers.

1. Anima- The siddhi by which a yogi reaches a minute state. As small as an ant or totally invisible.

2. Mahima- The siddhi by which a yogi is able to be so big that he may even tear apart the clouds and looks as if he has reached the sun.

3. Laghima- Making the body as light as a feather or cotton. The power to levitate; to make yourself light so that one could float in the air or walk on the water.

4. Garima- Heaviest body like a mountain by swallowing draughts of air.

5. Prapti- Yogi attains the power to change any object from one state to another, as he desires. Can predict future events, gains the power of clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, thought-reading, etc. He can understand any unknown language, the language of any beast or bird. He can cure all diseases.

6. Prakamya- Entering the body of another (Parakaya Pravesh).

7. Vashitvam- Power of taming wild beasts and bringing them under control. It is the power of mesmerising people by the exercise of will and making them obedient to one’s own wishes and orders. It is the restraint of passions and emotions. It is the power to bring men, women and the elements under subjection.

8. Ishathvam- Attainment of divine power. The Yogi himself becomes the Lord of universe.The Yogi who has this power can restore life in dead bodies.

Shankaracharya, the great saint :

Shankaracharya, the great Indian saint entered the dead body of a king called Amaruka of Varanasi. Shankara wanted to gain the experience of worldly life through that body.

Shankaracharya installed Srichakra in some of the temples in South India. These Srichakras have the power to defeat the evil spirits and blackmagic. They give away cosmic energy which are positive in nature. They have healing powers and prove very useful to the human beings. People believe that wishes are granted at those places where Shankaracharya had installed the divine Srichakra.

Swami Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda was also a great spiritual leader. He was a great yogi who gave an inspiring speech at the World's Parliament of the Religions at Chicago on September 11, 1893. People gathered at the place were amazed to hear him address all the people as Brothers and Sisters of America. The divine glow on his face attracted everybody. Such is the mind of a person who embraces spirituality and becomes a yogi. Yogi is the person who wins over the six evils:

1. Kama (Lust) 2. Krodha (Rage) 3. Lobha (Greed) 4. Moha (Attachment) 5. Mada (Ego) 6. Matsara (Envy or Jealousy)

Sri Krishna (famous Bhagavath Puran) :

The control over mind and body activities :

In the Bhagavath Puran (a great epic), Srikrishna has stated that there are many ways to attain these siddhis. Control over breathing, by practising the Pranayama. Hathayoga or Yogasans and self-control, meditation, awakening of the Kundalini or divine power within the body are some of them. Only with the Guru's direction these siddhis are attained. Pure vegetarian diet is expected during the practice or even after attainment of these powers. Mind and body should be clear to concentrate and meditate. Krishna, in Bhagavad Gita has stated that the human body is just like a cloth that you wear. Once it is worn out, the soul leaves from that particular body and after some time enters the mortal world in the same form or other forms. Liberation form birth & death cycle is called Moksha and this can be attained by a total devotion to Sri Krishna during ones lifetime.

Meditation and 7 Chakras :

Awakening the Kundalini :

The short video below shows how a person gets the divine powers by meditation. There are 7 chakras in a human body. After purification of mind and body, Pranayama(control over breathing), continuous meditation and practising Hatha yoga for a long time, the Kundalini Shakthi in the body gets awakened at the bottom most Mooladhara chakra. When the person is able to rise the Kundalini shakthi to the top most 6th and 7th chakras, he will be able to attain the Siddhis or Supernatural powers.

Caution : It is very dangerous to awaken the Kundalini without the help of Gurus (experts in Hathayoga and meditation).

Kundalini rising from bottom to top :

      Meet Baba Ramdev or any other good Yogi who knows all forms of Yoga. Travel to Haridwar or Himalayan region to get the knowledge of yoga. Those who practice yoga should be satwik( veggie). Raja yoga or Hatha yoga, whatever it is should be learnt from a well known guru.

      hi everyone,

      We human aren't using 100% intelligence of brain function. Ayurveda Father Charaka discovered 2000 types of different medicines in early days. Indian Great MATHEMATICIAN 'ARYABHATTA' discovered number 'zero". Without Zero all computers,technology, science is zero.

      Can you guess how these knowledge come from ? These people are saints and chanting sanskrit mantras and following vedas , upanishads and god narayana. As we went for ramayana, it's in tretaya yuga, usually people from different community/hindu itself doesn't trust!! Krishna said: If you believe "I"(GOD KRISHNA) is there, I will be with you,; If you don't believe me, then also i am with you. I am always with in you as "PARAMA ATMA" (GOD LIVING AS INNER SOUL) irrespective of religon/gender/living creature. Meditation and Yoga Helps to remove "MATERIAL DESIRES" and If one has no desire, He/She will become 'PARAMA ATMA' doing good to others, Example: Guru Raghavendra Swamy, Swamy Viveka Nanda, Many Dedicated Scientists, Mother Theresa, Our Soldiers, Shankara Charya, Madwa Charya, Prophet Mohammed, Jesus Christ, Himalayan Babas, Innocent NEW BORN INNOCENT BABY.. etc.. Etc May include Many unseen people like you.

      In past most of Spritual events happen in our earth...and God was also stays on earth like Shivji..and Vishnuji in sagar...so I want to know..our galaxy is so small and there are millions of galaxies exist so is there any living seceret exist in another galaxies. ..

      Because there is no declaration of lacks and millions of galaxies in our veds..

      only mostly about India...or near by country or whole earth you can take but in front of sun earth is like a small stone and there are millions times larger then sun objects available in space...so what about that....

      It is not possible that in whole space only earth has life..because in space earth is like a....u know so please assist my doubts if possible. ....thanks.

      I have been reading about meditation and practicing it since some years. I can now say(whether you believe it or not) that this practice has provided me with some powers(very little though). I have tried and tested it several times and...it works! I can now virtually do anything I want or obtain anything I want. I can make the life of anyone successful or...destroy it(though I will not do it). I am currently studying more ways to become even more powerful. Let me tell you that I know only the basics, I do not even stand to the toes of great Siddhis. You may be asking yourself why you haven't got powers yet even though you are doing meditation since many years! Well the reason is simple. These powers have been kept protected and secret for many reasons and one of them is because in this dark age there is a high probability of power misuse. But if you want to obtain the powers(which I am not going to tell you directly), I advise you to read lots of books, webpages, articles on the topic and... you''ll start to see patterns! Good Luck!

      people who argues about non existance of god have this qualitiews 1. Kama (Lust) 2. Krodha (Rage) 3. Lobha (Greed) 4. Moha (Attachment) 5. Mada (Ego) 6. Matsara (Envy or Jealousy)

      so they will never belive in god , ramayana , mahabharatha ,ram , krishna , dwarka , hanuman , etc etc .

      Do not waste your time in arguing with this people .

      I hv been to Anjanadri(where Lord Hanuman Took Birth).Also visited Chinthamani Temple(the place from where Lord Ram shoot Vali-from one bank of the river to another bank of the river).

      From both the places, I could feel that those holy souls are existing from long time in those Hampi Locations.Still people have been seeing lights(passing by during amavasya) from Tara-Parvat(mountain where Tara-wife of Sugreev lived)..So keeping all these facts in mind-if you reach Hampi at these locations, u will get the actual feel of Goddess People..Jai Hanuman...Jai Sree Ram..

      people today have wrongly understood hinduism.

      see each character in mahabaratha & ramayana got each meaning & each short stories in these great epics relates to each eternal truth but unfortunately today people are not guided properly. And about siddhas & maharishis, THE POWER POSSESSED BY A SIDDHA OR A MAHARISHI A HUMAN MIND CANNOT IMAGINE.

      Mr. Karthik Battaram

      Q1) These deeds of non-covetousness & chastity are almost impractical for a social man/family man and that infers that a social man can never become a Yogi. Is it true? If so is there any alternative?

      Ans: a social man/family man can become a yogi.... the meaning behind the words non-covetousness & chastity doesn't mean to this physical world... ur mind should be able to see them as acts of body and not to have any attachment / expectation out of those acts...

      Q2) One of the crucial element of becoming a yogi is truly non-desirable & unbiased attitude. One who goes beyond the need of any desire alone can become yogi. If so the very thought of becoming a yogi itself is desirous. How do you explain this contradiction?

      Ans: ur right the thought of becoming a yogi itself is a desire... that's why the practice of seeing the ur body, mind & acts as a third person without any expectation is the practice which u have to do...

      this is called as "aparokshanubhuti"... u can practice by sitting in a calm place by closing ur eyes and observing ur thoughts in a neutral ways without expecting any outcome out of this practice... in the beginning it may be difficult to observe without any bias or expectation... but with time u will know what i said by urself... this practice will also make u to understand the answer to ur first question

      Once u start practising this u will know that ur body & mind may be performing some activities but ur no way attached to it or expecting any outcome from it

      Q3) Why should one has to take the human form and then break away all the bonds and earthly possessions, become totally unbiased to anything and then attain enlightenment rather be a part/extension of the Super Intelligence itself and oversee all the creation?

      Ans: All those things what u said is from the world's view... can u view & understand an object by being within it ? Ex: can u see & understand a Bus / train completely by sitting with in it !!... only by observing it from side u can understand it completely... similarly what ur able to realise ur true-self that ur not this body... u will understand that all these things called human, animal or forms all the acts of thought like a film reel running in front of u... they just doesn't have any more meaning when ur to achieve ur trueself

      Hi Karthik Battaram, You are here with some good questions.

      A social man/family man can surely become a Yogi. But it becomes almost impossible because of his strong bonding with family members. Once he comes out of this bonding and gets prepared for it mentally, it becomes easier to follow the path of saints. Only the one who is really born for it will change his mind. After having lot of experiences in life, it is better to go for the path of enlightenment because according to Hindu scriptures, we don't take birth as humans every time. According to the karma in the present life, a soul takes the form. So, to get rid of this karma it will be great thinking to become a yogi. Strong will power is needed to follow the path of enlightenment. But the Guru can do it all. He should be a great yogi himself to change another person. He is able to select the disciple and future yogis at the first sight. So find a best Guru who can lead you towards a right path.

      There will not be any desires in a true yogi. He knows that he has to get rid of all strong bonds and disconnect from this mortal world to attain the ultimate - moksha(free from birth and death) .

      Hi Vivekananda, Thanks for the Knowledge. I have been practicing Raja Yoga(based on Swami Vivekanda's books) for several hundreds of hours and am close to attain Samadhi state of mind(A mind fixed on a single thought/object for a count of at least 28.8 mins makes one spec of Samadhi state). I have a couple of questions which have set me in dilemma and are becoming hindrances for further progress. That is...The very fundamental stages are YAMA, which means, non-injuring anybody, truthfulness, non-covetousness, chastity(Bramhacharyam), not receiving anything from another & NIYAMA, which means regular habits and observances, austerity, study, contentment, purity, worshiping God, fasting.

      Q1) These deeds of non-covetousness & chastity are almost impractical for a social man/family man and that infers that a social man can never become a Yogi. Is it true? If so is there any alternative? Q2) One of the crucial element of becoming a yogi is truly non-desirable & unbiased attitude. One who goes beyond the need of any desire alone can become yogi. If so the very thought of becoming a yogi itself is desirous. How do you explain this contradiction?

      Q3) Why should one has to take the human form and then break away all the bonds and earthly possessions, become totally unbiased to anything and then attain enlightenment rather be a part/extension of the Super Intelligence itself and oversee all the creation? Kindly help with the insights. Thank you.

      if you are smart and intelligent, it is easy to find the right Guru. Never accept anyone as your guru, at first sight. Be with him for some days. Act as if you are helping him or his Ashram people. Do not get too much involved with him until you know he is the right one for you. Follow him for at least 6 months to know all his activities. Ask with people inside and outside Ashram, about his behavior and true powers.

      Hi Kennedy, Past deeds always follow a person. It is just a matter of time for a person who is going on a wrong path. Even the richest have to suffer when they are born on this planet. We only see people who suffer physically. But none of us can see a person who suffers mentally until he goes for a treatment or gets hospitalized. We see only smiling faces of people in our everyday life.

      If God really loves us, why didn't he endowed evryone with same power, i mean giving someone more and some very less, infact none. Why is always the poor and weak suffering of various problems in life whereas the rich and guilty roam free and untouched by sorrow. Dont u think sir, that God shd change his ways before we change our belief about him.

      Actually i believe that if an honest,inocent and someone who has experienced most of the sorrows of life, replaces God in reality, he can do much better to the world. (Pls dont give the examples of Bruce Almigty, bcos: 1. He was alone, God had 108 deities, and 2. He had only ten days for works which needs 10000 years)

      Vivekanand ji,As long as one considers The Great Ramayan and Mahabharat as just stories, it would be understood as stories only.The Mass of our population is made to understand that Ramayan and Mahabharat or any Puranas as mere stories.... In fact Those Puranas are the REAL HISTORY OF THIS GREAT NATION..not the one taught in the modern syllabus...about some cultureless pirates and maniacs who attacked and looted this sacred land.. Alaas.. that too is our karma phal..Any way.. India is the most Sacred Land in the entire Universe and will ever remain so being blessed by the Great Hanuman and the Yogis and Rishis of Himalayas.

      remember guys any story that is made up in this world has a little bit of fact in it....even if little.so u can't deny ramayana as a complete fiction.

      I am really impressed with this article. I am also in search of a spiritual master who can guide and solve my plethora of questions both spiritual and material. Talking about Hanuman. I am enlightened to know about those interesting facts. In Telugu we call lord Hanuman as ANJINEYA. There is this famous Anjineya Dandakam(Like Hanuman chalisa). we strongly believe that those who read it will be relieved from fear and problems related to Black Magic and gains prosperity. Another interesting information is that Hanuman is the FUTURE BRAHMA. All the best and keep going.

      Yes, of course it is a wonderful experience to awaken the Kundalini. But once someone awakens his/her Kundalini, then he should be very satwik in behaviour and food habits. Only an experienced Guru can tell you more about kundalini awakening. He will show the right path to be followed later on, so that there are no negative effects on the native.

      KUNDALINI AWAKENING IS SOMETHING THAT A COMMON MEN SHOULD NOT GO FOR IT WITHOUT ADVISED OR UNDERSUPERVISION OF GURUS IT MIGHT BE HARMFUL ***? PERSON TRYING TO DO SO SHOULD READ DYANESHWARI CHAPTER "KARAM YOGA" IN WHICH LORD DYANESHWAR HAD GIVEN BEAUTIFULL ILLUSTRATION WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS WHEN KUNDALINI IS AWAKEN....

      Vivekananda, forget people like Rajkamal. He would question all and everything. Some people love that. Lord Hanuman is the one we have to concentrate on, such people may deviate us from the path if we are weak. So concentrate and build your blog, so many more would be benifitted, inspite of people like Rajkamal.

      When someone speaks about our great culture and on the contributions of all Great Yogis that all these things have no science base, he and everyone who hears him must at least think most of science theories and basics is just the imagination or sudden sparks of ideas in the mind of its inventors and then develops a new basic, a contribution to the branch of science. Science now says a common man uses about 1% of his potential intellegence, about 2% by polititians and about 5% by scientists. By using this 5% of their potential intellegence, they analyse their thoughts and possibilities. By attaining divine power through yoga, prana yama and other spiritual methods one will be able to use his entire potential. Thus gaining wisdom he can understand the real truth. So what our great Yogis had told cannot be analysed using today's science because it has not grown enough yet to provide explanation for Indian spiritual thoughts, because the masters of science use only about 5% of their potential intellegence. Just think on Indian contributions like ayurveda which was born thousands of years before, is getting its world wide reputation. Let me conclude by saying, never tell 'no' or 'its baseless' to our spiritual concepts on the basis of science.. We must atleast study try to understand the truth about our spiritual concepts from a true spiritual teacher by following his instructions on practicing spiritual techniques....

      Very true vivekananda..!!

      I totally agree with you, I have been involved with yogis and spirituality since my childhood.. and I know kundalini power and Lord Hanuman are true.

      And Mr. Raj kamal, belief is something which is needed to realize God.. Its not like first God show me himself then only I will believe in him. God is dying to reveal himself to you.. !!

      By the way I am having a very good site for your refernece:

      Atma darshan is really the one that many of the yogis want to attain at the end of their sadhanas. It is my pleasure to view those comments from you. Thank you.

      Dear Spiritual Friend,

      I saw your hub about Kundalini shakthi.It is really good and informative. It is essential to practice Raja yoga to attain the enlightenment in addition to hatha yoga which is its first part.However through Bhakti yoga and Japa Yoga on can get the great enlightenment.Actually all the spiritual practices finally reache to Raja yoga which is the real God vision or Atma darsan.

      I am an illumined yogi through Bhakti,mediation and japayoga. Please see my varous articles in the hub pages.

      In Indonesia, especially in Java, Madura and Bali we know the Ramayana story. However, the stories are different. many Indonesian writers in the past must have added some details which make them different from yours. Hanuman or Anoman in Javanese language is the white ape, the general of the army of King Rama who invaded Alengka (Sri langka).

      Diurnalpeloria...to gain spiritual knowledge there isn't any age limit. But to practice and get involved in it is very very tough for people like you and me.

      Beware! there are frauds who act like real Spiritual masters.

      very informative page. given me much to think about. i often think of searching for a spiritual master to begin to train further down these paths, however doubt even this initial step. how would one even go about finding a proper teacher, if as i have read to understand, the most enlightened are themselves detached from the material world and thus out of contact with ordinaries like myself? furthermore, what of trust in another man to bring about spirituality? how to put faith in another of flesh and blood to lead me down these paths of betterness? questions and doubts pervade.

      i am still young yet, and what a vital thing is time. how to be sure in devotion to this ideal, it will be lead and nurtured by the right teacher?

      vivekananda you are absolutely right because nothing happen accidently...because no one become a P.hd Professor accidently or no one become a Pilot without learning from a master and the same thing apply on Spirituality which is totally different from this material world...If we want to see God then we have to go to a Real Spiritual Master and should learn this Study from him...anyways this is not a small thing which i or any one can explain here or we all fight for this thing...The first thing i want to say that if this person not see God it not mean that no one is in this world who not see God...this person do not know because he only didn't met with all the people on this Planet Earth...The Day when he will wish to see the God then God himself show him the way to him...Second thing i was a dj and i never believed in these things before but after coming in the contact of right spiritual persons...may be because of my good karmas of past life now i am believing in all these things and also gaining experiencesa while meditation...which is better then any material happiness...like sex or money...No one go to path of spirituality or in the shelter of God if we say...its all matter of past karmas and our own desire to know God which is inside our hearts...and the last thing is sadness which come from this material world...

      Hanuman isn't a killer, but the person didn't have so much power to withstand the divine power that Hanuman had. He was an ordinary man like u and me. Many scientists cut off from the external world, until they discover or invent something new. They forget eating, drinking, sleeping etc. We all know it. To gain something one has to sacrifice. Soul cannot be purified until and unless somebody really dedicates and sacrifices for it. This is what we gain from meditation, Hathayoga and pranayama and worship of god. Happiness that yogis get with all this is only known to them. Not others who are totally immersed in worldly matters.

      Yes, Ramayana has a correct geographical presentation just like Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. Hanuman a God or killer? why would he kill a person who is trying to take a picture? You say that people can see his real power if they believe in him. I say that people need to see him forst to believe him. I am not saying that you should change your point in the blog or some thing like that. I only want to say that every one has to develop the attitude of questioning before believing. I believe in six Gods which taught me every thing I know, they are, 'What?', 'Why?', 'When?', 'Where'?, 'How?' and 'who?'

      If you say that I have to get cut off from this world for years to see God, then, "No, thanks. I don't need God."

      Person who saw him and clicked the photo died on the spot. The story related to this is given in:

      geocities.com/Eureka/Enterprises/1503/Saikrish31.html

      Just have look into that site. Not only that i know a village in Karnataka where Hanuman(idol) is sitting in meditating posture. In that particular village, no persons are expected to make loud noise. Those people with occupations related to wood cutting, craftsmen, carpenters etc. cannot live here. They suffer with unknown problems if they stay in this village. TV9 had shown this amazing village. You might ask me the question why this idol has so much power, when Hanuman is near Manas Sarovar. The fact is that Hanuman is a yogi with supernatural powers. David blain can show only levitation and not flying in air like superman. But Hanuman can. He is almighty and powerful. He can be in many places at one time. He is a Superhuman. Modern people cannot see him until and unless they fully dedicate and believe in him. They have to follow vrith and brahmacharya for years and totally cutoff from worldly happiness to see or reach him.People who are troubled with black magic can easily overcome this problem by strongly believing and worshipping Hanuman. I've seen this with my own eyes. So, i standby whatever i have mentioned in this blog.

      Mr. Rajkamal, Ramayana is not only an epic but a true story, well-known in India and most of the Asian countries. There is ample proof in Srilanka and India for this. If u visit Lanka they will show the places where Ashoka vatika and battle took place. It is now all in ruins. Hanuman's existance is justified in the Rishyamuka parvat, one of the 7 hills near Hampi. Ramayana and Mahabharatha are not only great epics but stories based on facts. Whole of India is supporting these facts. If it was only a story written by someone only 1 or 2 states in India would have supported this. Hanuman is not only a Ramayan character but a living legend. He is beyond our imagination.

      Ramayana is one of the all time hit stories in India, nothing more than that. Asthma is relieved temporarily when the bronchioles dilate so that air enters the lungs more freely. All the things about body becoming lighter and hanging freely in the air is called ILLUSIONISM. David Blaine does that superbly. Hanuman could have easily jumped across the ocean when the descriptions by the author got extremely superlative.
