Query: I want to follow brahmacharya. But i am not able to do that due to night fall. I
had initially some bad habit masturbation. I am also practicing Yoga but not able to follow brahmacharya
You do not dwell in thoughts of celibacy (aka Brahmacharya Vrata) which
is a prerequisite for following the path of Brahmacharya! Celibacy Brahmacharya cannot be followed
half-heartedly. It needs to be practiced in totality! Unless one understands the meaning of celibacy,
Brahmacharya Vrata, Yoga... meditation... you would not gain much in your spiritual pursuit of
Following the path of celibacy commands that we treat all womenfolk world
over as our mothers, sisters or daughters! There can never be a fourth relationship with any woman if we
truly desire following the path of Brahmacharya Vrata... celibacy! It truly is difficult but not impossible.
Before we indulge further on the subject of Brahmacharya celibacy... we need to understand the meaning of
Brahmacharya celibacy can never be followed in words and deeds only. It
needs to be followed in thoughts also. A single thought of any woman during night time can result in sweet
dreams (night fall)... something undesirable on the path of spirituality! To remove all thoughts related to
womenfolk even from our dreams we need to treat every woman existing on Mother Earth either as our mother,
sister or daughter!
This practice needs to be followed not literally but in totality! Even a
single error would land us in jeopardy. God Almighty allocates a particular quota of energy to every man and
woman every month. Some destroy this cosmic energy through masturbation... others while it away in
unnecessary sexual indulgences! Why lose the precious quota of energy destined to mankind every
It is this quota of energy when maintained and preserved for a minimum of
12 years results in full awakening of the Kundalini and the incumbent finally reaching the stage of
enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and salvation (moksha) in this very life! In absence of proper practice of
celibacy... no human being can guarantee traveling the spiritual path in right earnestness.
Masturbation in itself is never bad. But excessive indulgence in
masturbation leads to physical weakening which youngsters may not realize... but the cosmic truth can never
be belied! Highly successful people... are not sexually disinclined... they rather transmute this precious
cosmic energy into channels that lead straight to their goal of life!
If we ever think of reaching the goal of life... we need to preserve this
quota of energy ordained by God Almighty to every human being month after month! Celibacy Brahmacharya is
never about spirituality alone... to be successful in life we need practice celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata
absolutely voluntary and without preconditions.
The celibacy mantra demands highest level of spiritual practice! Treating
all womenfolk as our mother, sister or daughter is extremely difficult... but not impossible to practice! Not
even 1% people world over are able to practice celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata in totality! It is only one in a
million who stands out and boldly announces having reached the goal of life! It is these people who make life
meaningful and worthy of living!
You state you practice yoga and also meditation. You fail to understand
that yoga in Hindi is termed as meditation in English. We need to understand the meaning of yoga meditation
in totality! Yoga meditation does not mean sitting in a closed dark room with a small lit bulb in the center!
Yoga meditation means synthesis... the effort of the soul atman to merge with God Almighty... the supreme
soul at the earliest!
Yoga in English is derived from Yog in Hindi. Yog in Hindi stands for
synthesizing two things together! The effort of our soul atman to liberate itself forever from the cycle of
birth and death and reach the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism) is termed as Yog in Hindi. In simple
words two Yog two equals four!
Nothing in the spiritual domain needs to be practiced ritually and
without understanding the basic concepts therein! The prime reason why most people never gain enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) in their lifetime! Going to the temples, churches or mosques carry no meaning! If we truly
desire meeting God one-day... we need to practice absolute celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata... the only path to
gaining enlightenment and salvation!
Involuntary or forced celibacy does not serve any purpose in life! Many
religious institutions advocate and impart practicing involuntary celibacy! Such institutions... their
teachings never truly understand the meaning of celibacy... leave alone practicing it! Swami Vivekananda
truly practiced absolute celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata!
Swami Vivekananda... the famous disciple of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
was absolutely clear about everything in life! He was never after gaining enlightenment and salvation in his
lifetime. Neither did he gain enlightenment or salvation in his life! He was a true symbol and advocate of
community upliftment. He wanted to help the poor... the downtrodden denizens of the society!
He made it absolutely clear to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa... his
spiritual master guru that he kept the benefit of the community above all. His every effort in life was
always for the benefit of the community... never otherwise! He was the best orator the world has ever seen!
He never minced words lest the people judge him wrongly!
In the earlier stages of his life, Swami Vivekananda wanted to see and
meet God in this very life! The moment his Guru... the spiritual master Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa made him
see God Almighty... he refused pursuing God as the goal of his life! Had he pursued enlightenment and
salvation as the goal of life... he would have worked for the benefit of one lone individual... which was
contrary to his ideals as he wanted to work for the masses!
In principle... decide why we want to pursue the path of absolute
celibacy... Brahmacharya Vrata! The moment the goal of life becomes clear... it is not difficult to follow
the path of celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata in totality! The moment I truly understood the meaning of celibacy
and Brahmacharya Vrata... gaining self realization was not far behind! My Kundalini awakened fully absolutely
unknown to me.
