マハルシ 画像

D.: But the sages Vasistha and Valmiki possessed such powers?


M.: It might have been their fate (prarabdha) to develop such powers (siddhis) side by side with their wisdom (jnana). Why should you aim at that which is not essential but apt to prove a hindrance to wisdom (jnana)? Does the Sage (Jnani) feel oppressed by his body being visible?


D.: No.


M.: A hypnotist can render himself suddenly invisible. Is he therefore

a Sage (Jnani)?


D.: No.


M.: Visibility and invisibility refer to a seer. Who is that seer? Solve that first. Other matters are unimportant.
