Hinduism - What Is Kamavasayitvam?


 ("want suppression") One of the eight superhuman abilities (siddhi) said to be bestowed by great spiritual achievement.

This talent allows you to regulate your urges.

It also implies that any pronouncement, such as a blessing (ashirvad) or a curse, will surely come to pass.

The lack of individual desire in such a person seems to be the source of this latter power, implying that such a person will never be motivated by self-interest.

This authority symbolizes the pan-Indian notion that through giving up everything, one may eventually obtain control over everything.
