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.
