..spiritual seekers around the world are experiencing levitation after being initiated by Paramahamsa Nithyananda

 Have you ever imagined or dreamed you could fly?  Feeling light and unbound by gravity; lifting off the earth!  Yogic masters and other saints have demonstrated it is possible to fly and/or have the body lift off the ground, float for some seconds, then gently land again. The ancient teachings of the Vedic wisdom reveals yogic techniques to experience levitation of the physical body.  Amazingly, spiritual seekers around the world are experiencing levitation after being initiated by Paramahamsa Nithyananda and practising yogic breathing techniques under his guidance.  Normal everyday people are lifting off the ground, defying gravity and experiencing feelings of joy, bliss and happiness – all these as a side effect to expanding consciousness on the path to enlightenment.

 

 

 

Although levitation has been part of the spiritual practice of yogis for thousands of years, people in the western world have generally been introduced to levitation in magic shows where people suspend belief, and enjoy the “tricks”.  Western definitions of human levitation often reveal skepticism such as: Levitation is the act of ascending into the air and floating in apparent defiance of gravity.  No one really levitates; they just appear to do so. and The physical body rises into the air, hovers or moves through the air with no visible means of support, seemingly in defiance of the force of gravity.  Levitation in a paranormal context is the claimed raising of a human body through mystical means. The definitions may have elements of implied disbelief, but in the eastern spiritual traditions and texts levitation is a reproducible science available to the serious student of yoga.

Levitation in scientific settings

Levitation in the scientific world as described by Wikipedia “is the process by which an object is suspended by a physical force against gravity, in a stable position without solid physical contact.  A number of different techniques have been developed to levitate matter, including the aerodynamic, magnetic, acoustic, electromagnetic, electrostatic, gas film, and optical levitation methods.”

Some basic understanding of gravity, air and sound is helpful when discussing scientific levitation.

Gravity is a natural force that causes objects to attract one another. Isaac Newton’s law of universal gravitation states that every object in the universe attracts every other object with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. People, animals, and objects are strongly attracted to Earth due to living on Earth and the size of the Earth. Although scientists have not proved or explained what exactly causes the attraction, they believe it exists everywhere in the Universe.  Although Einstein’s theory of general relativity has replaced Newton’s law, Newton’s law continues to be used as an approximation of the effects of gravity.

Earth’s atmosphere, air, is made up the gases nitrogen, oxygen, argon, carbon dioxide and other gases along with some water vapor. Air behaves like a fluid and moves like water does.

Sound is a vibration that travels through air. A sound’s source is an object that moves or changes shape very quickly. Striking a bell causes the bell to vibrate and this causes the air molecules to vibrate creating a forward travelling wave. Sound is action. Sounds are basically compressions of air hitting a human ear drum.

Acoustic levitation uses the properties of sound waves in a specially designed device to levitate objects. The sound waves used are extremely intense sounds and are nonlinear by nature. Nonlinear acoustics is a complex science. The sound waves are extremely intense and strong. A simplified explanation of the theory for levitation with sound is: The sound wave travels one direction, then gets forced back the other direction, back and forth. In the path of the wave will be a place where minimal movement will occur, the node of the standing wave. This is the place where objects will be suspended. An example of sound moving large objects through space can be seen in the following example.

In the book The Bridge to Infinityby Bruce Cathie, excerpts from a story of astonishing feats of levitation accomplished by priests in a monastery high in the Tibetan Himalayas is taken from a German magazine and  recounted.

A Swedish doctor, Dr. Jarl… studied at Oxford. During those times he became friends with a young Tibetan student. A couple of years later, it was 1939, Dr. Jarl made a journey to Egypt for the English Scientific Society. There he was seen by a messenger of his Tibetan friend, and urgently requested to come to Tibet to treat a high Lama. After Dr. Jarl got the leave he followed the messenger and arrived after a long journey by plane and Yak caravans, at the monastery, where the old Lama and his friend who was now holding a high position were now living.

One day his friend took him to a place in the neighborhood of the monastery and showed him a sloping meadow which was surrounded in the north west by high cliffs. In one of the rock walls, at a height of about 250 metres was a big hole which looked like the entrance to a cave. In front of this hole there was a platform on which the monks were building a rock wall. The only access to this platform was from the top of the cliff and the monks lowered themselves down with the help of ropes.

In the middle of the meadow about 250 metres from the cliff, was a polished slab of rock with a bowl like cavity in the center. The bowl had a diameter of one metre and a depth of 15 centimeters. A block of stone was maneuvered into this cavity by Yak oxen. The block was one metre wide and one and one-half metres long. Then 19 musical instruments were set in an arc of 90 degrees at a distance of 63 metres from the stone slab. The radius of 63 metres was measured out accurately. The musical instruments consisted of 13 drums and six trumpets. (Ragdons).

as the speed of the drumming, and the noise increased, the big stone block started to rock and sway..

Behind each instrument was a row of monks. When the stone was in position the monk behind the small drum gave a signal to start the concert. The small drum had a very sharp sound, and could be heard even with the other instruments making a terrible din. All the monks were singing and chanting a prayer, slowly increasing the tempo of this unbelievable noise. During the first four minutes nothing happened, then as the speed of the drumming, and the noise increased, the big stone block started to rock and sway, and suddenly it took off into the air with an increasing speed in the direction of the platform in front of the cave hole 250 metres high. After three minutes of ascent it landed on the platform.

Continuously they brought new blocks to the meadow, and the monks using this method, transported 5 to 6 blocks per hour on a parabolic flight track approximately 500 metres long and 250 metres high. From time to time a stone split, and the monks moved the split stones away. Quite an unbelievable task. Dr Jarl knew about the hurling of the stones. Tibetan experts like Linaver, Spalding and Huc had spoken about it, but they had never seen it. So Dr Jarl was the first foreigner who had the opportunity to see this remarkable spectacle. Because he had the opinion in the beginning that he was the victim of mass-psychosis he made two films of the incident. The films showed exactly the same things that he had witnessed.

Magnetic levitation suspends objects with no other support than magnetic fields. The magnetic pressure counteracts the effects of the gravity. Mathematics and physics combine to prove the theory. A very practical use of the magnetic levitation science is the German engineered high-speed monorail with a patent dating back to 1934. The first commercial project was completed in 2004, the Shanghai Maglev Train covering 30.5 km (18.95 mi). The maglev system has no wheels, rather it hovers above the track using the attractive magnetic force between two linear arrays of electromagnetic coils.  The train floats on a frictionless magnetic cushion!

Electromagnetic levitation uses electromagnetic radiation for levitation.

Electrostatic levitation uses an electric field to levitate a charged object and counteract the effects of gravity.

Aerodynamic levitation is created by floating an object on a stream of gas, including air. A helicopter and hovercraft uses down thrusts to achieve levitation.

Gas film levitation uses a thin gas film to float an object. An air hockey game, where the puck is lifted by a thin layer of air is an example of gas film levitation.

Casimir force can be used on micro-objects to levitate them. Casimir force is a force that attracts. Scientific calculations have proven that the casimir force can be a repulsive force creating levitation. Casimir effect is part of quantum field theory utilizing conducting metals, vacuum expectation value of energy and the quantized electromagnetic field.  In some new research with the Casimir force, Professor Ulf Leonhardt and Dr. Thomas Philbin report they can use the Casimir force to repel, rather than attract. The force is not an electrical charge, nor gravity.  The casimir force is the fluctuations in an all-pervasive energy field in the empty space between the objects. This is one reason atoms stick together, also explaining a “dry glue” effect that enables a gecko to walk across a ceiling.  Although the technology is still in the early stages, the application of the technology would be to have frictionless machines.

Levitation of spiritual saints and yogis have been witnessed throughout history

The moment he did that, the body would lift from the ground  like an inflated balloon!

In his biography, Nithyananda Vol 1, Paramahamsa Nithyananda describes seeing his yoga teacher, Yogiraj Yogananda Puri or Raghupati Yogi, levitating. Raghupati Yogi was a yogi of great skills and powers and lived on the same street as Nithyananda. Raghupati Yogi was born and brought up in Burma (now Myanmar),  where he learned yogic procedures from Buddhist lamas.  Raghupati was a yoga adept and could levitate. He would lift himself up and ask children to move under him to check that there was nothing supporting him, to prove that what he was doing was no magic or illusion. He would do this through a combination of yogic postures (asana) and breath control (pranayama). Raghupati Yogi trained young Nithyananda to levitate also. Nithyananda says in Living Enlightenment, “Usually, a logical mind cannot accept or understand that all this is possible, but this great Yogi made everything possible. I had the good fortune to be around him and see him levitating, not once but at least 20 times.  He would inhale deeply and hold the breath.  The moment he did that, the body would lift from the ground  like an inflated balloon!”

Nithyananda goes on to say that only a person who has experienced the consciousness of Patanjali can bring Patanjali and all the dimensions of yoga such as levitation, back to life.  Nithyananda says that he had the great fortune to be with such a master (Ragupati Yogi)who had experienced the consciousness or the inner space of Patanjali.

Milarepa, a yogi of Tibet (born 1052), was very dedicated to the spiritual practices of Buddhism.  As a by-product of enlightenment, he acquired many spiritual powers including levitation.  It is said he could walk, sleep, and rest during levitation.

The Jain scriptures speak of Jain ascetics who would fly from place to place in a matter of seconds. The  most skillful ascetics in levitation were Swami Divakarsuri and Swami Pragyasuri.

In 1936, Yogi Pullavar levitated for five minutes in front of 150 witnesses. The day was sunny with no clouds.  The visibility was perfect for viewing.  The Illustrated London News carried the story and photographs of the event.  Many people were allowed to search for props or supporting devices but none were found.

Pindola Bharadvaja was one of Buddah’s 16 disciples who attained special powers or siddhis. A story is told that in one of Bharadvaja’s joyful moods he said:  Do you think flying in the sky is magical?  I will show you some spectacular acts!  Then he jumped into the sky and flew. Unfortunately for Bharadvaja, Buddha was displeased at the display of powers to impress and amuse.  Always, the special powers come with a warning – do not get caught in the powers.  The siddhis are by-products of the spiritual practice and enlightenment is the goal.

A yogi’s body loses its grossness after use of certain pranayamas. – Yogananda

In his autobiography, Paramahamsa Yogananda relates a story about his encounter with a friend who had seen “the levitating saint”, Bhaduri Mahasaya. The yogi often remained in the air, several feet above the ground. Yogananda was asked by his friend, “How does Mahasaya remain in the air, defying the law of gravitation?”  Yogananda replied:  “A yogi’s body loses its grossness after use of certain pranayamas. Then it will levitate or hop about like a leaping frog.  Even saints who do not practice a formal yoga have been known to levitate during a state of intense devotion to God.”

The Roman Catholic Church has many “flying” saints, reportedly over 200 saints!  One of the famous flying saints is Saint Joseph of Cupertino, Italy. On October 4, 1630 in Cupertino during the festival of St Francis of Assisi, Joseph was helping in the procession when he flew into the sky and hovered over the crowd.   Also, he floated a few feet off the ground in front of Pope Urbain VIII.  It is reported he levitated more than 100 times. Joseph’s ecstatic experiences were often triggered by hearing church music, church bells, the name of God, the Virgin Mary or other saints. He died in 1663 and was eventually canonized by the Church for his unique flying ability.

Saint Teresa of Avila was a well known levitator in Madrid in 1680. Paintings of her show her in mid-air demonstrating her ability to levitate. Sister Ann of Incarnation witnessed Teresa lift off the ground one and a half feet and hover for 30 minutes. St. Teresa wrote of her experiences:  “My soul was carried away and now and then the whole body as well, so that it was lifted up from the ground…After the rapture was over, my body seemed frequently to be buoyant, as if all weight had departed from it, so much that now and then I scarcely knew that my feet touched the ground.”

Maria Villanie, a 17th century Dominican nun experienced levitation.  She did not know how or why it happened yet she said she felt great contentment and joy of spirit.  “I felt myself seized and ravished out of my senses so powerfully that I found myself lifted up completely by the soles of my feet, just as the magnet draws up a fragment of iron, but with a gentleness that was marvellous and most delightful.”

In recent times many scientific experiments have been conducted on extraordinary yogic powers that Tibetan Lamas have acquired through breath control and meditation

In recent times many scientific experiments have been conducted, most notably by Dr. Herbert Benson and others of Harvard University Medical College, on extraordinary yogic powers that Tibetan Lamas have acquired through breath control and meditation. These include increasing the body temperature, levitation and many extraordinary physical feats not normally possible for humans. What Raghupati Yogi did was quite similar to some of these findings.

Levitation:  A Vedic Perspective

The Vibhuti Pada (Book III) of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali describes levitation along with other spiritual powers

From these examples, one understands the yogis, swamis and saints of the past have demonstrated amazing qualities of levitation. The saints from the Christian and Roman Catholic backgrounds did not know why they experienced levitation. Levitation was mysterious and an embarrassment to the Catholic Church. In fact, St Joseph of Cupertino was brought before the Inquisition of Naples in 1638 because of his “flying”. Pope Urban VIII exonerated him from any fraud, yet he was sent into seclusion for the rest of his life. In contrast to the Catholic Church, the Vedic spiritual tradition studied levitation and accepted “flying” as a special power or siddhi that can be expressed on the path of enlightenment. The Vibhuti Pada (Book III) of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali describes levitation along with other spiritual powers.  Mystics believe the power to fly is something that comes from within, that it can be cultivated by anyone.

Levitation has three stages, as described in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The first stage is “hopping”, as Paramahamsa Yogananda said that a yogi’s body will “hop about like a leaping frog”.  In stage two, the body will hover in the air before descending. Stage three involves yogic flying and mastery of the sky. In all stages the experience is reported to involve inner peace, joy, bliss, lightness, and an intense happiness.

Laghima is the term used in the Yoga Sutras meaning to have no weight.  Laghima Siddhi means “the ability to make one’s body lighter than air and fly at will”.  Laghima is the control of the effect of the earth’s attraction on the body by developing in each cell the opposite (centrifugal) tendency.  When laghima is perfected it is stated that the siddhis have the ability to travel on the sun’s ray and enter into the sun planet.

During levitation, the inner space of the receiver enters into entanglement with the pure inner space of the enlightened being

In Vedic philosophy, the human body is compared to an open pot, in the sense that the same space exists both inside and outside of the human body, separated only by the seeming boundary of the pot (the body). During levitation, the inner space of the receiver enters into entanglement with the pure inner space of the enlightened being, and loses the dirt of thoughts and engrams contaminating it. The body becomes light and as a result, the body is lifted off the ground, much like a helium balloon rises into the air.

Levitation is the most visible indication that the grip of karmas is reducing

Levitation is the most visible indication that the grip of karmas (bio-memories) is reducing; the willingness to let go of pain, fear and guilt has started to happen.  A transformation is happening and these outward indicators can be a powerful support on the spiritual path.

Michio Kushi (born in 1926 in Japan, introduced macrobiotic diet to the West) was seen levitating in front of a group during one of his presentations by a participant, Keith Varnum.  Keith Varnum reported what Michio Kushi had to say about levitating. “Levitation is very easy.  It is a natural, simple process.  You all can do it.”  The technique is to empty one’s mind and clear the consciousness. One must eliminate ego and self-absorption and the awareness of the small self. When the awareness of the personality is gone along with the self-concern and limiting beliefs, one can move with the natural laws of the universe. One can “utilize the electro-magnetic wave energy that moves between the earth and the sun, moon, planets and all the heavenly bodies in the universe.”  The universal energy is in motion from the rolling waves and tides of the ocean, spiral energy patterns reflected in sand, shells, the body, and plants.  Letting this same energy move one’s body is levitation.

Levitation – Paramahamsa Nithyanada’s Presence and Perspective

For the spiritual seeker, levitation can be experienced at a beginner’s level with the grace and initiation of Paramahamsa Nithyananda

For the spiritual seeker, levitation can be experienced at a beginner’s level with the grace and initiation of Paramahamsa Nithyananda. This process can be experienced in Inner Awakening,  a 21 day meditation program with Paramahamsa Nithyananda, a living avatar. The program is created to awaken the ultimate inner potential energy, kundalini energy, within each participant. With the Kundalini energy activated, innumerable practical benefits will manifest in various dimensions of life; health, wealth, relationship, education, career and more. Levitation of the participant’s body is often a tangible, side effect of the spiritual awakening.

In the Inner Awakening program, most participants have had some experience of levitation..

In the Inner Awakening program, most participants have had some experience of levitation, even if the extent of levitation is the height of one eighth inch!  Some participants repeatedly reach heights of two or three feet off the ground. Paramahamsa Yogananda called this level of levitation “hopping”. Critics may say the person is physically creating the levitation, however the critic would have an impossible time achieving this feat through the will of the body effort.  Levitation is a phenomenal process when considering it means lifting the 50-100 kg body weight against the gravitational force of the earth while sitting in padmasana (legs locked in lotus position) with hands locked in samana mudra (clasped hands).

One participant of the Inner Awakening Program, Sridevi, tells of her levitation experience:

I bounced up and down off the ground a few times. At one point I actually bounced so hard that my mala ( a string of beads worn around the neck) flew right off of me!  It was just incredible. But not so much the levitation as the deep feeling bliss while doing the levitation.

”Sridevi”

Bertina, an IA participant and physical education teacher from Vancouver, BC said:

I have been meditating, just regular meditation, like many people do, but this kind of meditation I never imagined that in just a few days would put me to such a state just literally levitating. So, it just took me by surprise….it just is exhilarating laughter and joy and absolute bliss just happening. The state of mind that came with the levitation was I guess the most precious thing.

Bertina Vancouver

Levitation is a result of powerful yogic techniques that balance the Samana

Paramahamsa Nithyananda explains what happens in the body to create this “paranormal” event. Levitation is a result of powerful yogic techniques that balance the samana. Samana is a process that is responsible for moving the air all over the body from the tips of 10 fingers and toes to the crown chakra. The prana or life-force energy is stored in tiny air sacs beneath each hair of the skin. The air sacs get the life energy from the cosmos. If these air sacs are filled and balanced throughout the body, levitation can be experienced.

When the air energy is equal unto the body weight of the participant, the lifting of the body happens..

Participants of the Inner Awakening programs are reminded that the main purpose of the initiation of the master and yogic processes to balance the samana is for enlightenment. As a by product, when the air bags under each hair hole or follicle are full, the participant will feel light, blissful, happy and joyful. When the air energy is equal unto the body weight of the participant, the lifting of the body happens. When the air sacs are at least 75% pure life energy and only 25% thoughts, physical levitation can occur. When the pure life energy is 100%, a person can turn the floating body in the air, the body will be more like flying – a person can be the pilot of his/her own body! The yogis of the past reached this state of flight.

Ron Guffarian, a yoga instructor, says of Swamiji’s ability to reduce thoughts:

When I look within, things are very chaotic at first, and there are a lot of thoughts and ideas that come and go. Through the techniques with Swamiji, he is the expert! No matter what state of mind I’m in, no matter how chaotic or how busy my mind might be, he has many different techniques that has the effect on the mind that slows down the thinking process. It just blows my mind. Every day he introduces a new technique of meditation – when you use his techniques to go look inside – I start to see the thoughts and I see the spaces in between, and there’s gaps. All of a sudden an empty space appears, it is very beautiful, restful, and delightful. It’s very enjoyable.  When I experience that space, when Swamiji introduces the idea that if something wants to happen in your body, if you feel light, let anything happen. So with that mind, in that space or no-space because there is nothing there, I just feel like my body gets so light that it wants to fly.  And that’s what I call it. I call it flying. I come off the ground. Your body gets light and lifts off. It’s a beautiful experience. I have never had such a joy.

Ron Guffarian Yoga Instructor
A crucial part of the process for the spiritual seeker to levitate is the initiation of Paramahamsa Nithyananda..

A crucial part of the process for the spiritual seeker to levitate is the initiation of Paramahamsa Nithyananda. Otherwise, it can take a practitioner about twelve years of extraordinary self-discipline and spiritual effort to get the first taste of levitation. But an adept in the yogic science of levitation, who can transmit his own yogic power to the learner, can make it happen in a matter of days or even hours which has happened in the Inner Awakening program. The energetic involvement of an enlightened master is the difference between a technique and a process. In a technique, the effort and responsibility for success falls on the learner. In a process, the enlightened master takes all the responsibility!

Initiation is a deeply mystical process to transfer energy from the Master to the seeker

Initiation is a deeply mystical process to transfer energy from the Master to the seeker; in this context to activate samana balancing and initiate the levitation process. To some extent, initiation can be explained by the quantum physics principle of entanglement.

Quantum entanglement is a theory in physics which describes the way particles of energy can become correlated to interact with each other in predictable ways, regardless of how far apart they are. The state and actions of one of these particles can influence the state and actions of the other particle, if the particles are entangled. Entangled particles can communicate with each other over vast distances, yet how they communicate remains a mystery to science.

Entanglement is the scientific principle used to explain all processes involving energy transfer, whether spiritual healing, kundalini awakening, levitation, teleportation or materialization. An enlightened being has the super conscious state to raise others into his own elevated state by the subtle pressure of his presence. When the mind of the receiver comes in touch with the no-mind (thought-free mind) of such a being, a process similar to entanglement happens, and thoughts subside in the mind of the receiver. Spiritual entanglement happens when the receiver is mentally in tune with the source and is open to receiving the energy.

John Hagelin received his PhD from Harvard University in 1981. His field of study is particle and quantum physics. He has studied and written many papers on the unified field. John Hagelin is the founder of US Peace Government and works for the Maharishi University of Management. He is trained in Transcendental Meditation.  In the 1970’s his interest in meditation and quantum physics developed simultaneously. Dr. Hagelin proposes that the unified field is consciousness. The unified field of consciousness is the energy layer where entanglement occurs. From his website Permanent Peace is the following explanation for yogic flying from his point of view: As explained in the Vedic science of consciousness, Yogic Flying develops the ability of the individual to act from the unified field of all the laws of nature. The mind-body coordination displayed by Yogic Flying shows improved correlation between consciousness (the unified field) and its expression—the physiology. Since increased brain wave coherence is one indication of Transcendental Consciousness, moreover, it is significant that EEG studies have shown that during Yogic Flying, at the moment the body lifts up, coherence in brain wave activity reaches a peak.

Deeper Truths about Levitation

Paramahamsa Nithyananda explains: Levitation, as an expression of spiritual powers, is part of a very old Vedic tradition. Let me describe some of the deeper things that happen during levitation. The deepest reflectors of the consciousness are awakened. In the body, brain, and muscle there are different levels of reflectors of consciousness. If just your lower level reflectors are there, like mirrors they will reflect where the dust is more and the size and shape of the mirror is different; concave, etc. The reflection will not be the highest and truest to the original. You have more pure, stable and deeper layers of reflecting mirrors. In awakening the deeper and more pure reflecting mirrors, the original super consciousness does not feel the individual identity. Your individual identity is experienced on the reflecting mirrors. The quality of the reflecting mirror is going to directly have a say on the quality of the identity you feel as you. If the mirror is pure and clean, naturally the quality of you, what you feel, not only will be deeper and higher –  it will be truer to the original. For example, an ordinary logical calculation is part of your brain functioning; the highest, deepest intuition is also part of your brain functioning. When your logic mirror reflects the super consciousness, you feel logic is your identity.  Unfortunately that is not a complete or a total identity. But when you feel your intuition mirror is mirroring your consciousness, naturally your intuition part feels you as “I” and you have tremendous joy and respect for yourself. When the intuition reflects the mirror of consciousness, that is what I call highest coherence.

Understand levitation itself does not lead you to the highest conscious coherence. Through levitation I initiate you into the highest conscious coherence but only when your body is prepared, only when the muscle memories are in tune and your muscle memories are properly awakened the highest coherence stays in you permanently.

Levitation does not mean that you reach the end..

Levitation does not mean that you reach the end. Levitation means the higher parts of your mirror are made to reflect the high consciousness happening now. When the high consciousness reflects on the high part of your mirror, all other part of the muscle memory needs to alter itself, needs to prepare itself for the highest radiation. Morning levitation is like an intense energy dosage, the whole day you are working physically and using the mind to iron out all the stress, not allowing the stress to accumulate. With this understanding you will see that the energy you received through levitation will be digested and will become part of you.

Effect of Kundalini Awakening and Levitation on One Brain

Dr. Kanak Panday is a trained psychologist having more than 23 years of experience as a behavioral psychological consultant with various reputed industrial and business concerns.  She is the founder of Gunjan Human Karigar and Maxcellence – Peak Performance Solutions.  She is trained and certified on Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and in Biofeedback, Neurofeedback and Quantitative EEG.

Dr. Kanak Panday conducted a research project in July, 2011 on one disciple of Paramahamsa Nithyananda to determine what happens in the brain during levitation.  Paramahamsa Nithyananda reports:  First, when the normal brain was checked, they found: 1) She has a brain!  2) It is normal.  3) When the kundalini energy was awakened and levitation experienced, Dr. Panday said the awakened state was intensely expressed, also the deep sleep state was intensely expressed. No outer world information was being processed. When the brain was cut off from outer world processing and the individual “story” disappears even for a few minutes, healing can occur. Energy in the brain was 1,000 times more, which is extraordinary and beyond our limit of understanding. Unimaginable! In all my 23 years of practicing I have not seen anything like this!

Research on Living Enlightenment Process (LEP) Participants

Research was done during the 48-day Living Enlightenment Process at the Bidadi ashram in Bangaluru India, when over 60% of the participants experienced physical levitation within 48 hours of the commencement of the course. By the end of the course, over 90% of participants experienced physical or psychological levitation.

The research at the ashram followed all of the FDA standards. It is also worth noting that other research projects in relation to energy activation, meditation and yoga at Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam have been approved by Ohio State Medical School in the United States where serious research is in progress using well established scientific protocols.

My vision for 2012 is an enlightened mantra for the new generation! smiles Paramahamsa Nithyananda.

“Planet Earth is ready for a breakthrough in consciousness. After all, 2012 is just around the corner! My vision for 2012 is an enlightened mantra for the new generation! And I am going to do my best to make it happen!”, smiles Paramahamsa Nithyananda. Levitation is a process that is moving us to toward a new earth of increased consciousness and coherence, where peace, compassion and conflict-free living is a lifestyle.
