Celibacy/Abstinence/How to teach children


Hello Sir,
Thanks a lot for your previous answers and showing me the correct path. Can you please answer couple of more questions?

1. My daughter is 3 years old now. I want to give her proper guidance from childhood. Please let me know what can i do for this.

2. I read in your past answers that kids born with celibate parents are intelligent and spiritually inclined. How can i guide my friends/relatives who are yet to become parents. I am not sure If I should tell them about this because I'm also at initial stages in this path.

1. If the husband and wife practice virtue & spirituality, with a Yogic life to realize the self, children get educated by themselves. Do this much for now; all other things will be taken care of.

2. Do your Sadhana and be quiet. Nothing more is expected of you.

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."
