I would also like to say that i have go quite far in practicing Bramacharya and sexual thoughts over the past few months have decrease drastically.

Thank you very much


ANSWER: 1. That is discharge of the 'Cowper's Fluid', further to mental stimulation. It is not conducive to Brahmacharya. It does not occur, if Brahmacharya is practiced in thought, word & deed.

2. Apply the suggested methods in totem and strive for complete sublimation, with devotion to God. Do not indulge in mental fantasy; else a break will soon follow.

QUESTION: Does one pointed concentration required in achiving the absolute truth?

Is it true that the reality is like a mirror that reflect the real self ? And by changing internally the external change as well ?

Does one have to drop all attachment in order to gain insight of the absolute ?

As one progress in bramacharya, does one get dispassionate about relationship?

I feel that ojas in my body is moving in the lower spine, but it never move up . What cause such blockage ? I feel there is a lot of stored sexual energy but i am unable to turn them upward .

1. Yes, concentration on the Atman (formless self).

2. The world is an illusion which is reflected on the self (screen of pure consciousness). By merging the mind into the self, everything else (world etc.) also merges into the self.

3. If the practice is proper, the absolute truth gradually shines forth and attachment to the external drops by itself with time.

4. One gets closer to reality and therefore slowly loses attachment to the unreal (be it a relationship or something else)

5. It is not for you to worry about the internal processes. Your duty ends at honest efforts with surrender to God. If this much is done, there will be no stagnation. Do that much and leave the rest to HIM.

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."
