The unbelievable power of imagination


Tantra is willing to use the mind in a certain way. Tantric processes need elaborate visualization. Elaborate. Very sophisticated levels of visualization to a point where it manifests. To make mental process just like a physical process is what tantra is trying to do. To make imagination so strong that after some time, it is like physical. You actually create a ghost or you create a god. Both are possible. Both are possible, any kind of form you want, you can actually create it, manifest it, and make it walk. You know, like I was probably at that time, first standard means I was five, six. Six, seven I think. Second, third standard I must have been. And I have a cousin brother who’s a no good fellow. So that time, in my mind I’m, you know, like if I’m sitting like this, I can be engaged in my mind for hours on end without any communication with anybody. Because I’m setting up all kinds of things. So I loved Mysore zoos so much, I want to have my own zoo. So I designed my own zoo. I didn’t call it a zoo, it was a world by itself where animals were not locked as I wanted them. They were all over the place. Lots of animals and of course, I had a rhinoceros. So this fellow, you know one day something, he was with me and I told him, do you want to see my pet animals? He said, yeah. So I just kind of took him in. I just started talking to him and I sat with him and I told him, see this is it. Can you see this? Can you see this? Can you see this? See this one. Every day he wants to go. A couple of times I allowed because he had something that I wanted. After that he has nothing but he wants to go every day. And every day I have to sit with him and take him in. He got addicted to it. I am saying, it can become so real.
