Virtue conduces to happiness, vice to pain.

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

Raja Yoga Sutra Selection # 136

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

III.39. BANDHA-KARANA-SAITHILYAT PRACARA-SAMVEDANAC CA CITTASYA PRA-SARIRAVESAH

'When the cause of bondage has been eliminated, the mind can enter another's body through knowledge of its channels'.

Commentary:
When the highly advanced Yogi has given up attachment to life and has developed intuitive knowledge of the physical body, he gains the ability to use another's body for the purpose of helping and teaching others. This is not the same as possession by lower astral entities. The perfected yogi acts purely through the Self, which is common to all, and is thus merely directing Divine energy.
