1. Honest Sadhana with devotion to God is the only way. If such efforts are applied, wet dreams stop when the Yogi becomes an Urdhvareta by the Lord's grace.

2. It is not for us to decide for or against anything including marriage. Let go of the Ego which takes such decisions assuming doership and surrender to the Lord. This is the only way.

3. Wet dreams like all other things will stop not merely by one's efforts but by HIS grace. You cannot decide anything. Hence apply the right efforts, surrender to HIM and work without attachment.

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.


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."
