~Siddhi~

Siddhi is the term given for a spiritual or seemingly magical power or capability, which is obtained through rigorous and accomplished spiritual practices such as yoga and meditation. The Sanskrit word means “perfection,” “accomplishment” or “success” in English. It refers to the fact that siddhis are the fruit of the perfect achievement of spiritual practices.

Siddhis are generally powers to control the self, others and the natural world. It is said that, although they appear to be supernatural, they are actually accessible to all humans and can be explained in rational ways. They arise naturally when, through spiritual practices, the emptiness and openness of the mind is realized.
