Question
Om
sir,
I am following brahmacharya. I listen to bhajans and meditate.
I am facing a grave problem. I dont have much bad thoughts during the day or at night. My food is also very less. I am rite now staying in hospital taking care of my mother. It has been 4 days now and every night i am having wet dreams. I am scared of sleeping now. This is a very major break in my Brahmacharya. A blow to my concentration and confidence. Please help me as to what I can do to stop this deadly act. In this hospital I am unable to get up at 4am. Please help. (In deep trouble... Om

Answer
Apply the correct Yogic lifestyle and make it a regular life feature as soon as time permits. Mere meditation without purification of the body & mind through Yogic practices such as Asana, Bandha, Nadi Shodhana & Pranayama very rarely bears fruit.

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."
