It isn't. The nearest thing you will ever see is "yogic flying" which is really just people who have developed an ability to jump whilst cross-legged. The come back do to earth at the same speed as everyone else.

There are a few skilled performers who are able to create the illusion of flying and such people have been around for many years, but it is just a trick, albeit a really good one.

Here's an interesting extract from Lobsang Rampa about levitation.

I will tell you quite truthfully that I and many others have seen levitation. Levitation is a very real thing indeed, and it is not at all mysterious. It is a matter of reversing magnetic currents. If you get hold of two magnets, two bar magnets for preference, if you hold them one in each hand and bring them together, they may jump together with a loud metallic clang, often pinching a bit of flesh in - between! But if you reverse the direction of just one, that is if you take the one in your right hand, and you put the South Pole where the North Pole was before and you try to bring these two magnets together, you will find that they make quite strenuous efforts to evade each other, they oppose each other, they have no magnetic attraction to each other, they have repulsion instead.

Another thing: One can have a form of induction coil connected to a battery or to the mains, and over a shaft which projects upwards one can drop an aluminium ring. If the current is switched on, the ring apparently defies gravity and floats in the air. If anyone doubts the truth of this, well, they should consult some scientific magazine or write to the United States for a demonstration kit. But let us get back to what we are discussing seriously.

Levitation is a method of altering our own magnetic attraction so that we do not weigh so much. In England about sixty or 50 years ago there was a young man called Home; he gave an actual demonstration of levitation in an English country house. Some of the world's foremost scientists witnessed the demonstration, but because the demonstration disproved the laws which those scientists had formulated they would not give an unbiased report. In Tibet and China - China before the Communists made a commotion there, that is - and Japan, before the United States soldiers made a commotion there as well, one saw a lot of levitation and similar, things. But these things were never done as a circus turn, but only for the science of raising the Kundalini in sincere and genuine students.

To add to the above:

The nineteenth century medium Daniel Dunglas Home was reported to have levitated on numerous occasions. William Crookes, an English physicist, observed Home levitate on three separate occasions under conditions that would seem to preclude the usual conjurer’s methods such as concealed rods. An even more surprising feat by Home was reported by the Earl of Dunraven and two other witnesses who claimed to have seen him rise from the floor and float out of a window, twenty meters above the ground, and in another about two meters away.

There is an uncorroborated report of a levitation in the book Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain (Ostrander and Schroeder, 1970, p. 291). A Bulgarian farmer, aged forty-three, named Mikhail Drogzenovich, rose about 1.2 meters above the ground and remained there for ten minutes while witnesses checked that there was no means of support.


Yogic flying as described above is not the same as genuine levitation. Dismissing all levitation as a trick is misunderstanding our potential as human beings.

Peace

Our (Hindu) scriptures are sometimes translated as talking about levitation. In the verses I am familiar with, it is better read as a metaphor. To rise above worldly thinking, with dignity and calm, would be infinitely more useful than being able to float.

There was a Catholic nun who would Bi-locate from Spain to what is now known as Southwest USA. She would do this in her cell. The nuns would check on her and when she was 'gone', her body would levitate above her bed. The Church investigated what she was doing and now she can be founded in the Catholic Encyclopedia under the headings of Bi-location and Levitation.

Bilocation! Interesting that you mention this. ‘An autobiography of a yogi’ also mentions the enableability.

In Buddhism, there are Siddhis that seem to resonate with Bi-Location, Out of Body Experience (OBE), Astral travel, Levitation, make objects move, psychic ability to know the past, present and future, etc. But in order to do these things, Kasina meditation must be mastered along with other, rarely mentioned meditations. These resonates very much what some other religions teach.

During an outdoor meditation one time, i once levitated all the way up to the top of the Empire State Building. Cool stuff.
