How to have an out of body experience?

Transcript

Transcript: See, most of the people, I know that a lot of stuff going on here. In United States everybody is doing astral journeys. It's just hallucination. Okay? You lie down and just imagine that you're flying here, flying there. That's not it. See, what is being referred to, unfortunately everything becomes ridiculous when all kinds of people start handling it. What is being referred to as astral is, there are five kinds of bodies. Physical body, mental body, energy body, etheric body, and bliss body. These are five dimensions of the body. What is being referred to as astral body is, leaving the physical body, mental body, energy body, and the bliss body intact. And just allowing the etheric body to float around. That means you can conduct your activity here because your physical body, mental body, energy body is intact. But just allowing the etheric body to go, that's a certain kind of mastery. You can't just psych yourself into it. It needs enormous sadhana for a person to do that. Now, leaving the body when we say, we are just allowing the pranic body to move out, which is much simpler. It is a much simpler thing to do and it is more concrete thing. Compared to etheric body, pranic body is physical. It's more physical kind of presence. It's energy but it's a physical energy. Etheric is a transitory energy, it is neither physical nor beyond. It is a transition. Bliss body is totally beyond the physical. So getting the pranic body out and putting it back is easy and it's a much stronger experience because a physical part of you goes out and gets back. Etheric body needs much more sadhana because that is not even in your experience, it is not something that you can touch unless you're in a certain level of sadhana and intensity within yourself. But every street corner they are doing astral travel these days. That's just hallucination. See these things were done for a certain purpose. It's called Parakaya Pravesa. There have been schools which have been fundamentally focused towards this in India. Simply for entertainment, it's not worth exploring those things because it takes enormous effort to get mastery of all those things. And in the end what? What do you achieve? It is of no spiritual consequence.
