There are eight or Ashta Siddhis which are spoken about in the ancient Indian scripture the Rig Veda. The Siddhis spoken here are those of super human abilities. These Ashta Siddhi are –
Anima -The ability to reduce yourself to the size to the tinniest particle and turn invisible.
Mahima- The ability to grow to the size of the largest thing in existence.
Garima – becoming the heaviest thing in existence.
Laghima -The ability to become like the lightest particle and fly.
Prapti - Being in any or all places at the same time.
Parakamya -The ability to manifest your thoughts into reality.
Istva -The ability to make all act as per your wishes.
Vastva -The ability to attain the absolute.
These Siddhis have also been spoken about as being the ability to make your consciousness do absolutely anything; the expansion and contraction of the consciousness. The abilities to become a Superman on the mental level. These abilities I have noted are on the mental plane similar to the state of Non -Duality.
The mantra which is given is a Shakti Mantra the meaning of which is – I seek the blessings of the Goddess who grants the eight Siddhis.
