Immersing Body in the Mind & Mind in the Body!

The Blessed Buddha once said:
When, Ananda, the Tathagata immerses the body in the mind & the
mind in the body, by entering and dwelling in a blissful and buoyant
experience of the body, it happens that the body of the Tathagata
rises spontaneously up without difficulty from earth up into the air
just as a light tuft of cotton easily rises up into the air in the wind.
Then he possesses all the various kinds of supra-human forces:
Having been one, he becomes many; having been many, he becomes
one; he appears & he vanishes; he goes unhindered through a wall,
through a barricade, & through a mountain as through open space;
he dives in and out of the earth at if it were water; he flies freely
in space like a bird yet seated cross-legged, he walks on water as
though it were solid earth without sinking; with his hand he touches
& strikes both the moon & sun so powerful and mighty; he masters
the body and forms as far as the fine-dark-material Brahma world!
