Mystical Powers in the Yoga Sutra

In this program, recorded live on Memorial Day weekend in 2022, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait presents an overview of the Yoga Sutra’s Vibhuti Pada with a focus on the sutras crucial to studying and entering the field of siddhis, miraculous powers of yoga, and the yogis. This course details the anatomy of our subtle body and mind—a step necessary to recognize and reclaim our inner wealth, which yogis call siddhis.

Throughout the ages, siddhis, mystical yogic powers, have mesmerized believers and nonbelievers alike. The Yoga Sutra’s Vibhuti Pada is all about these extraordinary powers. With the exception of the Yoga Sutra, these miracle-like powers have been shrouded in mystery. They have been kept secret, and forbidden to “outsiders”. The Yoga Sutra dismantles this secrecy and shatters the entire notion of an outsider. Without any reservation, it shows us where and how to discover these powers in our own body and mind, and eventually how to claim our ownership of them. The most it expects of us is that we complete the groundwork, follow the steps, and under no circumstances hurt or harm our most trusted friend — our mind and our conscience.
