You mean out of body experience? Yes, of course. It was for him not only daily experience but also a method of yoga. There are two recognised methods of exteriorisation; it is either through the heart or the head. There are Yogins who get out of their brain consciousness into a still higher consciousness above the head, sometimes further into higher mental. But you ought to understand that these practises are secret traditions and not within the reach of men to explore or exploit. If you have a guru adept at these things, then he might be able to teach the art of leaving the body at will. And coming back into it too!
