Notes

The term also refers to the development of special powers as a consequence of long term connection effort.[1].

"...the siddhis are sometimes considered goals of religions practice and the siddha is a "perfected master" [2]

"Yoga powers are forms of extraordinary knowledge, such as awareness of previous rebirths, knowing the minds of others, seeing distant and hidden things, and remarkable abilities such as the power to become invisible, enter others’ bodies, fly through the air, and to become disembodied for a period of time, which are traditionally thought to be attained as yogins progress in their practice."
