By Swami Harshananda
Sometimes transliterated as: Caksusi, CAkSusi, Caakshusi
Cākṣusi literally means ‘pertaining to the eye’.
The desire to acquire and use supernatural powers is a natural trait of human beings. It has given rise to a whole range of occult sciences.
One of the powers that is most fascinating and sought after is the clairvoyant power. It is the power to see anything that is taking place anywhere in the world as per one's will. This is called ‘cākṣuṣī’ in the ancient Sanskrit works.
