(Sanskrit) One of the eight major powers (siddhis) of a yogi.
“The power with which the mystic can dominate the wildest animals; also the power to pronounce words which enchant and quiet poisonous serpents.” - Samael Aun Weor, The Aquarian Message
“This is the power of taming wild animals and bringing them under control. It is the power of mesmerising persons by the exercise of will and of making them obedient to one’s own wishes and orders. It is the restraint of passions and emotions. It is the power to bring men, women and the elements under subjection.” - Swami Sivananda, Kundalini Yoga
