Question
Hello,

In Tantrism both Hinduist and Buddhist and even in Taoism, they say that with ejacultion a man lose his vital energy. Tantra say that some man with an esoteirc technique can take some of the energy of his wife (yin energy to replenish the yang energy) in a invisible form by act of concentration. ANd can somebody take the energy of someone else from distance by the mean of trataka? I dont ask to do it but just to be aware of the phenomena.

Answer
Let go of all these concepts contrary to realizing the self; these concepts which do not put an end to suffering and first strive to realize the self.

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

Experience

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."
