Apparently they worked real good since they were able to bring down the 
Berlin Wall.

All it takes is to be able to *cause change at will* using the mind's 
own mental powers. With a mind that is perfectly coherent a person can 
cause physiological changes in the the human body - they could for 
example become as light as cotton fiber. The advanced techniques in the 
AofE are so powerful that some siddhas can cause their body to lift up 
and hover. The first step in this is the hopping, followed by hovering, 
then actual flying. We know that Zen Master Rama employed these same 
techniques in order to fill a whole room with golden light and hover 
above a large crowd of people. So, I guess you could say they work real 
good. Go figure.

I had pretty nice experiences with them. Others did as well. One of them is 
found in the Shiva Purana (not going to say which one or where). I also lifted 
-off once before the Sidhis were taught. I was laying down after meditation 
when kundalini started in my solar plexus and weightlessness started spreading 
outwardly to my extremities and I slowly rose in the air, off of my bed.Next 
thing I know , it gave out and I bounced back on the bed.I think they are being 
taught now as *advanced techniques*.

[FairfieldLife] A. Of E. Techniques- Circa 1975

2007-01-20 Thread Robert Gimbel
Posted by Sudarsha at 1/19/2007 03:36:00 PM 
This is what I learned to do: After TM/before ‘sidhi’

At the top of the head think/feel OM
At the eyebrow level, between the eyes think/feel Bhur
At the throat level, think/feel Bhuvah
At the heart level think/feel svah
At the solar plexus level think/feel tat savitur

- We were to do this moving our attention/awareness down the spine. (More 
detailed, exacting instruction I did not, unfortunately, record in my notes; 
not do I recall ever asking or being given any kind of explanation what this 
was for, what it was supposed to do/accomplish.)

I was told to go to one of the skin boys for checking. He had to tell me over 
and over what the “mantras” were. I had at the time a vague notion that this 
was something familiar.

It turned out to be the beginning of the Gayatri Mantra.

I do not remember how many times this was to be done before progressing to the 
‘sidhi’ program. Since I learned this on an ATR (Advanced Teaching and 
Rounding, I think), I left for home almost immediately thereafter. I had been 
doing the ‘sidhi’ program for some time and felt increasingly exhausted and 
dull from morning meditation to evening meditation. I wanted to sleep all the 
time and could barely function without a lot of effort, very difficult effort.

The addition of the “A of E” increased the dullness of the ‘sidhi’ program and 
added something I still find difficult to describe despite the sparce notes 
from this time in my journals. I simply felt awful. Dutifully, month after 
month I wrote my A of E experience evaluation and sent it off to wherever we 
were to send these things. I am unable to find the list of questions we were to 
answer and apparently did not keep copies of the pleading letters I sent. I 
felt so bad I was pleading month after month for some kind of help, any kind of 
assistance. Needless to say, there was no response.

I now recall a Sufi teaching lession I learned some years later: I have sent 
you a thousand letters and you have not answered one; but that too is an 
answer. 

After about 6-months of this (apparently if you are dull, exhausted, feel 
wretched and afraid that you will be cut off like the errant son of some stuffy 
and heartless aristocrat), you keep doing the same thing again and again 
expecting better results.

The Gayatri:

Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah
Tat
Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi
Dhiyo Yonah:
Prachodayat

English translation:

Throughout all realms of experience
‘That’
essential nature illuminating existence
is the adorable
One.
May all beings perceive through
subtle and meditative intellect
the magnificent brilliance
of enlightened awareness.

Wow, I wasn't on those early courses, but sure sounds exotic;
  Thanks for the free information- as I didn't even have to travel to France 
this time for those secrets...
  One thing that stands out- Some of these 'Kriya' methods attributed to 
Yogananda- seems true.
  So, is Yogananda also guilty of some kind of crime for teaching his 
techniques in the West also.

This was not the most common A of E technique given
out in '75. In fact, I've never heard of this specific

asked us to stay in touch with him by writing what our

It's now the 6th technique and it no longer has the sanskrit and so you just
