Question
1)Is it true that a person that loss too much semen get angry easily?

2)The more semen a person lose, the more he is dissatisfy with the world? The greater his greed, the greater his sensual needs ?

These statement come from my observation, i would sincerely like to hear your opinion on these.

Thank you

Answer
1. Loss of semen results in loss of vital energy, leading to overall weakness of the body & mind. A weak mind is more prone to anger and irritation than one which is strong. It also makes one associate himself seriously with the Asat (world illusion), thereby taking the illusion very real, resulting in strong reactions to external developments.

2. Yes.

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."
