Question
sir i am practicing brahmacharya,but i have some doubts please answer ..
1.you said that body of a brahamachari is like wirey(there is no fat) but swami vivekananda was not having fatless(wirey) body although he observed life long celibacy.
2.which among the trinity(brahma,vishnu,mahesh)is bigger or who is the supreme god.if we are meditating on a single power then who is that power among trinity.
pardon me,if i asked something wrong.

Answer
1. The term wiry has been used to refer to tautness and strength. It does not mean that the very constitution of the body changes.

2. All three are manifestations of the one Supreme power which has no name or form. It is by the virtue of that Supreme Almighty that the trinity function.

ॐ तत् सत्
(That Supreme being is the absolute truth)

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."
