Parapsychological phenomena have defied explanation by conventional science. In an age when there is a widespread and increasing interest in occult matters, science is compelled to widen its frontiers and to embrace new powers without losing its existing foundations. Traditional yogic knowledge offers a model that can seamlessly integrate occult and spiritual phenomena with the current scientific knowledge. In the light of of this wider and more complete Science we can now explore phenomena such as telepathy, precognition, psychokinesis, teleportation, appratitions, etc. The traditional knowledge also offers a well defined and scientific system of training by which such phenomena can be recreated under controlled conditions for study. We explore the fundamental principles of this training and its possibilities in expanding the human potential.
