Although Buddhism generally does not emphasize magic and miracles, the Buddhist scriptures describe Buddha’s miraculous powers and events during his long lifetime and teaching career 26oo years ago. These include the eight major and minor psychic abilities and powers or siddhis. Tibetan yogis are said to have the power of flight—passing unimpeded through walls, translocation, seminal retention, mind reading, consciousness transference, opening of the Third Eye, and the ability to use breath and subtle energy practices for long distance travel. These are just some of the annals of Tibetan mysticism and Himalayan marvels. While it may seem esoteric, you can tap into these teachings.
