Sw. Satchidananda

By samyama on the relationship between the body and ether, lightness of cotton fiber is attained, and thus traveling through the ether is possible.


By performing samyama on the relationship between the body and ether, and by performing samapatti on the lightness of cotton, one acquires the ability to travel through the sky.


By performing Samyama on the relation between the body and Akas and at the same time bringing about coalescence of the mind with light (things like) cotton down (there comes the power of) passage through space.
