plzzz suggest a method for me.if answer in your previous question then give me the question no. or link

1. Who asked you to inform your friends about the practice? Brahmacharya is a personal state concerning oneself and God. One should not mention or discuss the same with others.

2. If you wish to establish yourself in Brahmacharya, go through each and every past answer, absorb the essence and apply it in practice. 'Brahmavidya' (knowledge of the Supreme) cannot be attained by studying bookmarked links, chapters or paragraphs. It is not like the study of a subject in academics. The aspirant has to understand the process involved, reorient his very life and apply the same diligently for years, decades or lifetimes as the case may be, following which the knowledge comes from within, and not from any link or site.

Past answers contain the methods and mindset to be adopted. All of them should be slowly and steadily absorbed and applied. Then, establishment gradually occurs, by HIS grace.

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."
