Siddhi and the power of a master of 5th initiation


Siddhi or okkulte abilities are for many aspirants an actual theme often out of selfishness and vanity.
Pantanjali warns in his Yogasutras of the later eventually appearing Siddhi, occult forces which can be gained by Samyama and can bind to lower planes und hinder the development.
Many seekers hold these forces for spiritual . In fact, they correspond but a "big void" , which corresponds only to the mental plane , teilweises sind sie auch štherischer Natur entsprechend der buddhischen Kausalebene partly they are etheric in nature according to the causal buddhic plane.
Patanjali warns in chapter 3 of his Raja-Yoga-Sutras: (37.) From this comes intuitive listening, thought, sight, taste and smell. (38.) Te samadhau upasarga vyutthane siddhayah: These ordinary siddhis are obstacles to achieving the state of Samadhi, and they are regarded as secular powers of the mind.

Also an occult magician can obtain such etheric forces without enlightenment. The black Tantra seeks such forces from lower reasons.

Hinduism knows several Siddhis and distinguishes like Buddhism between ordinary siddhis (Wyl. thun mong gi dngos grub) and highest or or unusual Siddhis (Wyl. mchog gi dngos grub) who are a consequence of enlightenment.

About these skills are still the powers of a master of the 5th inauguration.
Hinduism calls such a master a Mahatma, Paramahamsa(highest swan) or Mahachohan. This master is still not fully connected to theOmnipotence, but he is potentially very powerful as he stands near the powers of the lower Parabrahman.


The 7 big forces of a master of the fifth initiation are regarding to Sri Yuktesvar Giri :

  • Anima : The power to make the body or other things as small as "Anu"
  • Mahima : The power to make anything unlimited big
  • Laghima : The power to make things unlimited heavy
  • Prapti : The power to reach anything wanted ( but a master has no wishes !)
  • Vasitwa : The power above all things
  • Prakamya : The power to fulfill all wishes by the will
  • Ishitwa : The power to be master of all things ( Ishwara )
  • It is said that already a boddhisattwa has forces(bodhichitta) but these forces are small and do not come out of the higher divine.
    The New Testament John 4.12 says:
    Truly i say to you : Who beleives in me will do things bigger than those that i do because i go to the father. (Comment : These lower forces disapper with higher developement. But God does not often allow to use his higher forces for doing wonders.)

    The life of a master with all these theoretical possibilities is not personal fulfilment as long as he lives in a human body : HE ist the light that comes down into darkness.... ! The late "Mother" in the Aurobindo-Ashram said " I am all the next miles around us... ".

    Such a master has the ability to "live" in three bodys at the same time. But a master only uses his power as a servant of the divine because this power comes from the divine. He can use his power only in accordance with the Divine Providence which controls the forces. The Divine Providence allowes not simple the possible use of its omnipotence for personal use (such as a higher 'Black Master' does).A master has power on a ray and not power over a ray.

    A.A.Bailey (Meister D.K.) said : A master is not omnipotent, but he has such power that he could let Europe sink into ashes within 10 minutes - and : A master has no aura.


    "In nirvikalpa samadhi there is no mind since there is only infinite peace and infinite bliss. Here ends the dance of nature, and the knower and the known are one. Here you can enjoy one of the highest divine and all-pervading narcissistic ecstasy. One becomes an object of delight,one will be the one who is delighted, and one becomes the delight itself.
    In nirvikalpa samadhi there are infinite bliss and power. All power of all occultists together is nothing when you compare it with the power that one possess in nirvikalpa samadhi. (Sri Chinmoy 1995)

    The life of a master is NOT fulfillment as long as he lives in a material body, because He is the light that descends into the "atrocities" of darkness. The late "mother" in the Aurobindo Ashram put it out as "the next kilometers around us, all I am ...".



    "To be concerned with what is good for all beings, joy and sorrow of others to make their own, this one has described as an indication of the inwardly liberated and fulfilled spiritual man.
    The Gnostic-Supramental man needs no altruistic self-self-extinguishing. Because that of altruism intentioned effort belongs to the intimate nature of his self-fulfillment. Therefore there is no conflict and no tension between one's own good and the good of others.
    The cosmic sympathy is only a part of the indigenous truth of the supramental man. This requires no specific decision to participate in the smaller joy or suffering of others. Her universal feeling, her universal action is always spontaneous and natural, an automatic manifestation of the own truth, an act of existential joy, streamin from the essence of the spirit. (Sri Aurobindo)
