Through different yogas one can attain strange occult powers such as walking on water, talking with persons who are at a distance, becoming immune to snake venom through chanting mantras, etc. These powers, attained through yoga, control different vibrations which have different effects. Each yogi controls one particular vibration through which he is able to perform certain feats impossible for an ordinary human being.
But the peculiarity of this yogic power is that it can control only one particular vibration. So a yogi, who through his control of a certain vibration can walk on water, can do nothing else. Likewise, one who can nullify the effects of the poison of a snake bite can do nothing other than that. All these different powers attained through yoga practises are phenomenal, and hence transient and unreal. These have nothing to do with spirituality or spiritual powers, which are already latent in all, but manifest only in a few select ones who have realised the self.
All life depends on certain Subtle vibrations (Pran). Their connection is more universal through the Ether (fine gas). For instance, a yogi wants to obtain a certain connection to something which he desires. Just as there are infinite varieties of things in the Gross world, so there are an infinite variety of things in the Subtle realm. A yogi gets hold of one of these things (powers) and gains control over the vibration pertaining to that particular thing. The spiritualists – true spiritual aspirants, saints and Masters do not indulge in these petty playthings, because once Realisation of God is attained, all powers come to him and emanate from him. It is all bliss, which he himself experiences, and that bliss permeates everything and flows from none other than himself.
