Question
So, this whole process we go through.  it's regenerative, it's transmutation, it's evolving, forming, shaping, shifting Us into... and out of our bodies.

and in the process, toxins are relieved and so are cells. our future karma can be counted as dirt.

1)as people, we become natural? defenseless? new, would you term it?

2)will you explain the process?

a shout out and thank you to Brahmimuhurtham, wherever you are. in space. like a window. lol.

Om,

Answer
One eventually becomes what he truly is...not the body, not the mind but the limitless self, free from desire, ever in bliss, the pure being.

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.

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."
