A description of the experience
Beyond Biofeedback – Drs Elmer and Alyce Green
Before leaving Tirupati I took several 35-mm shots of photos that had been made by a newspaper photographer. These show Rajalakshmi in lotus posture about a foot off the ground, from three different positions.
She did not claim to have true voluntary control of this phenomenon, in the sense of being able to turn it on and off, but said that this sometimes happened when she achieved a certain psychological state.
According to the legend in Tirupati, Rajalakshmi while in her twenties (she was thirty years old when we met her) had remained in this state for many months-some said three years. The past was not of great concern to us at that particular moment, however. From a scientific point of view the only thing of significance would be what she might demonstrate in the future.
