Celibacy/Abstinence/Unavoidable interruption in Sadhana

Question
Dear Sir,
Sometimes, there are unavoidable breaks in the Sadhana - like, traveling, guests at home (during the Sadhana time), which cause a break in the Sadhana in the morning/evening. Will they have bad effect on the progress?
Thanks a lot.

Answer
1. One should try one's best to adhere to regular and uninterrupted Sadhana, keeping it as the prime focus.

2. While an occasional miss in practice, due to unavoidable circumstances does not cause much of an impediment, the same, if made into a habit will negatively affect progress.

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."
