Query: What is the meaning of Siddhi. How can one get
The word Siddhi is derived from the word siddh ... something,
which has already been proven and has become a fact. In the Spiritual world while proceeding on the path of
spirituality ... we come across various Siddhis, which God tries to impose upon us. If we are comfortable
with materialistic riches and wants ... we can gain these Siddhis ... the aim of the God being to divert us
from the Spiritual path ... God does not want us to complete the Spiritual journey in a short
It tries to dissuade us ... not that God does not want one to achieve
Self Realization but God desires that for achieving enlightenment one should pass through a myriad of
testings ... sufferings before one can be given the status of being a self realized soul.
The cosmic journey of an atman the soul within comprising of 8.4 million
manifestations (the total life span of an Atman being 96.4 million years) God does not desire us to achieve
the same in one go ... if it were so then where was the need to create 8.4 million manifestations ... there
was no need at all ... all Atmans would have remained pure all the time ... no manifestations ... no Cosmos
... no mother earth ... no life ... only pure energy forms floating in the Cosmos ... life would have lost
From the first manifestation as an amoeba, subsequently a mosquito, then
a plant, an animal and finally a human being ... it takes a total of 8.4 million manifestations ... a long
journey of 96.4 million years on an average. The system of God was meant to be so. We neither have the power
... nor a reason to question it. We come unto this world not of our own making ... we are born to our parents
... nor the birth or the death is in our hands ... all is controlled by atman the soul within.
atman the soul within takes a body and not the vice versa. No body can
take an atman the soul within. The journey is as it is ... it is but within our hands to cut short the
journey ... if I desire to go to Bombay ... I can start on foot ... subsequently board a train and finally a
plane. God Almighty, permits it. All Religions and Faiths are to be relied upon ... all have the same goal
yet are different in their preaching. We need to understand the inner truths of all, which is essentially the
You may drink water, or Jal (in Hindi) or Pani (in Islamic Dharma) ...
meaning remains the same. The question is not what the others say ... the truth is whether we fathom the
depths of the Spiritual world.
Here I shall narrate it true story that was experienced by a renounced sage of our era ... Bhagwan Rajneesh...
popularly known as osho. Bhagwan Rajneesh embarked on his Spiritual career from Pune ... the cultural center of
India. He was not to be what he was in his initial stages of life. His destiny took him to USA where he established
a big Ashram for the seekers of Spirituality. In the initial stages of his life he practiced Spirituality in the
right spirit ... subsequently, he lost his way ... he was an extremely intelligent person ... knowing all the
tidbits of Spirituality ... yet he lost his way!
One single mistake in his life cost him heavily ... he mixed sex with
Spirituality ... sex has no relationship whatsoever with the Spirituality. Yet it is deeply connected with
the Spiritual goal in anyone's life. We need to practice Celibacy to its extreme if we desire to rise higher
on the Spiritual plane. It is as if climbing the Empire Estate building by the staircase or the lift. Going
by the staircase is following the normal route to Spirituality ... we shall have to follow the cycle of 8.4
million manifestations (a total period of 96.4 million years).
If we desire to cut short the journey we shall have to take the lift ... straight up! Here we need to follow the
path of a true celibate in totality. We need to preserve all our energies being given to us by God from time to
time ... it is almost a monthly cycle both for a man and woman. Our energies are recouped to us every month. Either
we may indulge in physical pleasures or retain our energies for a better future. We rise swiftly on the mental
plane only when we practice true Celibacy. Taking a lift is the shortest path if we desire to gain enlightenment
This is where the role of God comes into play ... he lets emotions take
priorities over the goal of Atman ... getting liberated from the cycle of birth and death forever ... we
indulge in sensual pleasures and lose our self. and subsequently the journey gets prolonged ... it is not
that God prompts us to prolong the journey but it has given us all the instruments by which we can either
control our emotions and take the lift or we can continue fulfilling our wanton desires. The total control is
in the hands of a human being ... no direct interference by God at any stage ... he has made the law of Karma
We reap what we sow ... nothing more or less. It is totally up to us to decide the goal of this life ... what our
next manifestation would be is based upon the residual Karma of this life.
Had Bhagwan Rajneesh not advocated practicing sex with Spirituality ...
he would have definitely Realized God within this life ... he failed to control his emotions at the end part
of his life and he failed bitterly ... his end was a life full of misery ... when he was shunted out (rather
thrown out) from the USA no country was willing to take him ... it was only his mother land (India) which
finally accepted him to die an ungraceful death. What a pity!
There is no dearth of Spiritual Siddhis which one can take hold of while proceeding on the path of the Spirituality
... yet we must refrain from practicing Black Magic ... meaning thereby that Siddhis are not meant for material
pursuits of life ... they are to be practiced for the benefit of mankind ... and that should be the true goal of
life as God desires us to do.
Reiki ... Spiritual healing ... practicing Yoga ... are all forms of
Siddhis ... there is no end to it. All martial arts are also a form of Siddhi ... the prime reason why the
martial arts are only to be used for personal safety and never for a revenge. Any type of his Spiritual power
(Siddhis) must never be used for personal gains ... God has meant them to be used for the public at
One can possess any type of Siddhi while proceeding on the path of
spirituality ... there are different paths for different Siddhis ... hear the small inner voice (of our atman
the soul within) which always prompts us on the right path and you shall never be devoid of any
