Celibacy/Abstinence/God's help


Recently i came across a post of yours

"God is working through those mocking you to unnerve and kill the Ego, while they themselves do not know it. "

Can you describe more God way of helping one kill off one ego .

Thank you so much

This entire creation, with all its occurrences, involving the world of people and one's Ego is itself a classroom to bring one closer to his self, via destruction of the Ego. What does one describe or not describe? All events which occur in one's life, directly or indirectly lead to this goal alone. Such is the Lord's play.

ॐ तत् सत्

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."
