Celibacy/Abstinence/Rotation of vital energy inside the body

Question
Hello Sir,

One interested in meditation may know the theory about the rotation of vital energy. Some say semen should be transmuted to vital energy but the semen is only transmuted by the rotation  of the vital energy inside the body. There are circuits of chi inside the body and to rotate the energy one should do it with the will and thinking. There are many theories. What is your practice or method?

Answer
The Sadhana required to transmute semen into Ojas is elaborated in detail in past answers. One should realize these things through personal experience and not harp over this or that theory, which is nothing but fancy.

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."
