Siddhl, Sanskrit, "attainment," is a term related to
Theosophy and other related Hindu traditions
meaning a supernormal power resulting from the systematic practice of spiritual
disciplines. Theosophy like other disciplines has discouraged the striving
for siddhl for its own sake, pointing out such a pursuit distracts from
the adherent's true spiritual betterment. Siddhl attainment alone can promote
an inflated ego. A.G.H.
