Life and death is an eternal cycle. Religion accepts another world after the present life. In our life also the ancients have passed information that defy science and logic. this concerns supernatutral phenomena. They do not pass the test of scientific examination and center around events that are manifested or occur to a select few.
One such phenomenon was related to me by my maternal grand father. He related me a tale that is difficult to verify at this stage. He told me he knew a tailor in Ferozepur who had uncanny ESP and occult powers. The tailor claimed that he met a ‘chela’ a man with occult powers who divulged to him a secret mantra. He was told to recite the Mantra by sitting on a wooden plank across a deep well full of water every night at 12 pm
The tailor was entrusted to recite the mantra for 40 nights. He was also told not to lose heart at anytime and at the end of that period he would be blessed with occult powers. Dutifully the tailor recited the mantra sitting every night on the plank placed across the well. On the 40th night the tailor confessed that the water in the well started rising up and slowly it reached his legs and soon began to inch forward towards his head. In some time the water had covered the tailors head. The man however kept his nerve and then suddenly the water went down and a voice told him that he had the super power.
As a proof of the power the tailor asked that a large tree nearby be uprooted and dutifully a terrific gale occurred and the tree was uprooted and fell on the side. The tale may or may not be believed but there is no reason for my grandfather to lie for nothing, so I am apt to believe it.
Mantras and the Spirit World
This shows that there are certain mantras which if recited can give you powers. Generally such men come in contact with the spirit world and develop occult powers. There are many such men who have developed these powers. But this shows that there is a spirit world and one can be in contact with that world generally through a medium.
The case of Ruth Montgomery is also worth examining. This lady who was a press reporter along with 6 US presidents had developed powers of a medium and could contact the spirit world. In fact she claimed that all her books were written by spirits who dictated these books to her. These books make excellent reading and give a glimpse of life after death.
Occult powers are generally related to evil spirits. These are those spirits that have not been able to enter the spirit world and are doomed for some time to remain in this world. These spirits can bring about dire retribution in case they are disturbed. Generally these spirits have done some grave wrong in society and suffer for that reason.
This is one frontier that science has as yet not breached. Maybe in the years to come these mysteries may also be solved.
