Untitled[edit]

if one is born with a siddhi of clairvoyance, how does one bring it under control?


Is siddhi a cognate of the Irish sidhe?Celsiana 04:47, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

No, it's a Sanskrit word. And as far as I know, there's no real connection between Sanskrit and Gaelic.

(But I could be wrong! :)

I suggest reading the Yoga Sutras for better information on divine powers (like Siddhis)--Mdsats 08:46, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

A Western Version[edit]

I don't think that this section really fits with the rest of the article, which is about the Hindu idea of siddhis. Any other thoughts? Sethie 18:20, 13 November 2006 (UTC)


I posted this request almost a month ago and no feedback, so I am going to remove it. Sethie 03:01, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Missing Siddhis?[edit]

The section "Eight Primary Siddhis" currently lists only five. 15:33, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Copy edit[edit]

I removed the copy edit tag. The grammar, spelling and tone seems all good. Cohesion not so much, but I think the confusing tag covers it. Tripnoted (talk) 06:02, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
