Celibacy/Abstinence/Involuntary release


QUESTION: I have a doubt.while studying suddenly my semen flows out how is this possible?

ANSWER: The cause is some form of a previous stimulation or mind state which becomes evident later through the release. It can also occur very rarely due to unconscious stimulation of the 'Svadhishtana chakra' (sex center) by Pranic currents due to certain past Samskara-s (impressions). Honest and persevered practice of Brahmacharya with the methods suggested will annul these problems in the course of time.

QUESTION: So does this mean I have violated the vow of brahmacharya?

The answer to this question lies with the questioner himself. When an honest inquiry is made as to whether there was any voluntary fantasy/imagination preceding the release (even a few days earlier) with full mental awareness, the answer becomes evident. Any release of semen amounts to a reset in the practice under such cases.

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."
