Question
Hello, In a previous posts you said that the physical body of a sage is made of immortal light even if it appear physical made of flesh and bones. Maybe im wrong but I imagine the meaning of the Trinity of the father (God), the son (body in the form of Jesus) and holy spirit (kundalini) as states of the same element. Like ice, water, vapor, transforming according to cold or hot temperature, this is easy to understand. But what is the real reason a body can change in light? When some religions say its God, it doesnt explain anything. There is a video about this in youtube,  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7U1jSiXBvA

Answer
While there is no doubt a covering of flesh, even as regards the realized sage, the constituent elements of that body [Akasa-space, Vayu-air, Agni-fire, Aapah-water, Prithvi- Earth] are in complete resonance and equilibrium with the very same elements in the cosmos, without distinction. Therefore, the body can be de-materialized by merging the constituent elements back into their source.

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."
