Celibacy/Abstinence/Ojas and yogic diet



1) Is Semen present in all the cells of our body?

2)Does our semen turns into white liquid merely by a sexual thought?

3)What are the foods which are good for the production of Ojas in our body?

4)What shall i do to avoid masturbation when i get a sexual urge?

1. Prana (vital, life energy) in reproductive fluid form is semen. Prana inundates all living cells in the body.

2. Prana surcharges the reproductive fluid formed by the secretion of various glands which is then called semen. Hence it is not the fluid itself which is of importance but the life energy powering it. Sexual thoughts withdraw Prana from all living cells in the body and focus it into the sex glands to create semen. Since Prana is connected to the mind, sexual thoughts dissipate Prana.

3. Simple, easily digestible nutritious foods prepared without artificial additives, taken in moderate quantities.

4. Refer past posts.

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."
