(Sanskrit लघिमन्, "weightlessness") One of the eight major powers (siddhis) of a spiritually developed person.

“The power to decrease the weight of the physical body to that of a feather. We can float in the air with the physical body, thanks to this power.” —Samael Aun Weor, The Aquarian Message

“He (the initiate) can make his body as light as cotton or feather. Vayustambhanam is done through this Siddhi. In Jalastambhanam also the power is exercised to a very small degree. The body is rendered light by Plavini Pranayama. The Yogi produces a diminution of his specific gravity by swallowing large draughts of air. The Yogi travels in the sky with the help of this Siddhi. He can travel thousands of miles in a minute.” —Swami Sivananda, Kundalini Yoga

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"In these studies of Kabbalah, we need to be practical; there are authors who write marvels, but when one looks at them, one realizes that they have not lived what they have written; they did not experience it in themselves, and that is why they are mistaken. I understand that one must write what one has directly experienced by oneself. I have proceeded in this way for my part."
