Probably the most famous demonstration of levitation occurred in India, in front of 150 witnesses on June 6th in 1936, by Yogi master Subbayah Pullavar. The “levitation” lasted approximately four minutes. By the way, this faking technique shown in the video is only one of various types of levitating trickery. Religious rivals of Jesus–and perhaps Jesus himself–used levitating tricks to impress crowds, and to lend an aura of godlike mystique to their persona. There are even magicians who use levitating tricks today, like David Blaine, for example. With a little guidance, a little know-how, you too can levitate.
