Celibacy/Abstinence/Hope after falls


dear sir,

Kindly can you tell me is there any hope for people who take to brahmacharya and fall a victim to lust again and again. Is there a place for them in Lords heart or he is left in pathala? Also after a voluntary seminal loss is there a slogan to regain some strength to pursue brahmacharya/ kindly reply..

The Jiva eventually realizes the fallacy of lust, knowing it to always end in pain, and takes stringent efforts not to indulge. This gradually leads to Sadhana, which in turns burns past Samskara-s & Vasana-s, thereby delivering the Jiva into residence in the self.

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."
