Extraphysical emanations

Redirected from Extraphysical powers

Physical bodies having abilities that are beyond the usual capacity of the body – such as the ability to run great distances at an incredible speed, to fly, to increase or decrease in size, to multiply, to walk on water, to pass beneath the earth, and so on – which are produced (emanated) from karma, recitation of mantra, the power of specially consecrated substances, or the power of an actual state of the first level of mental stability (the first dhyana).
