Raja Yoga Sutra by Patanjali, with commentary by Sri Swami Sivananda - Random Selection

Raja Yoga Sutra Selection # 135

From Discourse III: "Vibhuti Pada- On Divine Powers"

III.38. TE SAMADHAV UPASARGA VYUTTHANE SIDDHAYAH

'These("siddhis") are the obstacles to the state of "samadhi", though they are considered powers to the mind which is worldly'.

Commentary:
Here Patanjali makes it very clear that all of the siddhis that have been described above are but temptations and distractions from the superconscious state. They only appear attractive to those who are steeped in worldliness, egoism, and the desire for power.
