150 Protean

Madal: Chinmoy, is it true that a Yogi has a protean body? Can he even assume the form of an animal?

Chinmoy: Yes, Madal, a Yogi can readily assume different forms at his sweet will. But you have to know that only a third-class Yogi enjoys assuming the form of an animal, whereas a first-class Yogi enjoys the divine life in a human body.
