Celibacy/Abstinence/Karma/sex education


Dear sir

 Recent days we heard several sexual cruelties against Women for 5 min sexual satisfaction, My doubt is that all pain to body is the reaction of our own karma, If so the girls who suffered the painful rape is the result of mistakes done in their past life or birth?  what is real sexual education?

Sarvam khalvidham Brahman


1. Every event that occurs in oneís life is the result of karma. Without karma, a Jiva cannot get a physical body, be it of an animal or man. Both those who inflict violence and those who suffer, do so because of karma which is the result of ĎAgnyanaí (ignorance).

2. Making one realize the correct purpose of sexual thought/activity is sex education.

Questions concerning the practice of 'Brahmacharya' to know the self, & the means required are dealt with here.


The term 'Yoga' is a derivative of the Samskruth verb 'Yuj' which refers to union. 'Yoga', also called 'Brahma vidy‚' is the eternal dissolution of the individual 'Aham' (Ego) into the Atman (self) for 'Mukti' (liberation). Mere indulgence in '¬sana' or physical postures is not Yoga. ¬sana is only one limb or 'Anga' of Yoga. The eight limbs viz. Yama, Niyama, ¬sana, Pr‚n‚y‚ma, Praty‚h‚ra, Dh‚rana, Dhy‚na and Sam‚dhi are the means to Yoga. Brahmacharya or spiritually based continence is one of the important components of 'Yama'. 'Brahmacharya':- "Brahmani charyathey ithi" - "To surrender one's Ego and go with the will of the Almighty."
