The Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali - Vibhuti Pada
Samyama on the hollow in the throat
brings control over hunger and thirst.
Samyama on the tortoise energy line at the base
of the skull gives firmness and steadiness.
Samyama on the light in the head brings
the ability to perceive evolved beings.
Pure illuminated spiritual perception leads
to knowledge of all there is to be known.
Samyama on the heart leads to knowledge of consciousness.
Understanding of soul in its pure luminosity becomes distinct and apart
from the awareness and experience of pain and pleasure and our interest in
it. Restraint must once again be exercised to gain this knowledge of soul.
Then spiritual perception in hearing and sound,
touch, sight, taste and smell become enhanced.
Powers that rise can be followed but will only act as obstacles in breaking
down separation and becoming completely absorbed in the source of life.
Relaxing the forces that bond one to the body will
allow the consciousness to enter the body of others.
Mastery of one of the five pranas (udana) moves energy from the
lower body upward creating a lightness and ascension that allows
one to move over water, mud, thorns and more without contact.
