Hi Dhanunjay ji.. From my puberty i had strong sexual thoughts and i used  to fantasize  my beautiful classmates.. i never had sexual intercourse  because i used to fear of the god and people and STD's. but i thought that to masturbate is not a problem.. i just used to fantacise till ejaculation and i didnt used my hand .. now i am 26 years and i became weak and my immune system got weak and even i got mouth will be like unbrushed even i i didnt get concentration..By the grace of Allah i recently studied swami sivanada's book and i got realised but i have job opening in 20 days and i have to get this job for my dignity.. i took ayurvedic medicine for that problem but by taking it i get sleepy and cant work.. suggest me the ways to be healthy in this time and to acheive job..

Thanking you

Follow proper Brahmacharya in thought, word & deed with the suggested Sadhana. The best possible outcome is through this way and not otherwise.

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."
