The world that we live in is a very strange place and hidden in it is a vast trove of mysteries that has baffled mankind for generations.
They are better left unsolved so that it will continue to remind us that nature does not reveal her secrets after all.
Swami Rama founder of the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy in his book ‘Living with the Himalayan Masters’ describes his encounter with a yogi having superhuman feats. He explains in detail his encounter with a yogi claiming to have the ability to perform teleportation and how at his request he teleported his favorite dish from the Savoy Hotel in London and from another restaurant in Hamburg, Germany.
The food items appeared in a moment’s notice along with the bill in front of a baffled Swami Rama. Eventually, Swami Rama also learned to teleport objects. One day his guru came to see him and slapped him in his face citing of the theft they have been conducting using teleportation. He promised never to use such powers again. Swami Rama was also the first yogi to be studied by western scientists for his ability to voluntarily control vital bodily functions.

Legend has it that singer Tansen brought rain by singing the Meghmalhar Raga (a set of notes in Indian music). That is a thing of the past and in October 1982 in the city of Madras, India music actually brought down heavy rain.

A similar case also is reported in the Hyderabad News-Times newspaper dated 31st May, 1985 when a yogi performed a two hour intense meditation that brought down heavy rain on the drought hit the city of Bangalore.
4. Weather Control
Former Indian diplomat Apa Pant in his autobiography ‘A Moment in Time’ published in 1974 has written that certain rituals actually can control the weather. He based these facts on his travels among the Tibetan plateaus. While crossing the Nathu La pass into Tibet with his family during a heavy snowstorm and descending into the Chumbi valley they came across an ancient Buddhist monastery where Ajo Rimpoche who is believed to possess miraculous powers lived. Upon understanding the difficulties experienced by Apa Pant and his family during the snowstorm Ajo Rimpoche said, “Honorable Sir, why did you not let me know that you were traveling? I could have done something about it.”
After this incident, Apa Pant made it a point to inform Ajo Rimpoche whenever he was traveling through the passes and he records that in his thirteen crossings in all seasons across the passes the weather has always been favorable and was never a threat. Apa Pant out of utter curiosity asked about the weather control to the Dalai Lama’s officer in Lhasa to which he replied that the following of certain rituals and repetition of mantras can liquefy hailstones before they hit Earth.
3. Mystery Message
In 1882 a crew member of the Brazilian warship Araguari caught a glass bottle in his fishing net. Enclosed inside the bottle is a message stating that the sailing ship Sea Hero is in need of immediate assistance as the crew has incited a massive riot. The captain of Araguari decides to investigate and finds Sea Hero drifting. He sends a group onboard which eventually arrests all the rioters. The second mate thanked him but he is puzzled at how the captain had known of the riot in Sea Hero to which the captain replies of the bottled message. The second mate confesses that he had never sent a bottled message to the utter shock of the captain.
Court room investigations further deepened the mystery. 16 years before John Parmington author of the book ‘Sea Hero’ made a publicity stunt by disposing thousands of bottles enclosed with messages into the sea. One of those bottles made its way into ‘Araguari’ and that too after 16 years!
