Celibacy/Abstinence/Healing people


Will you please answer a couple questions regarding the use of healing by an udvareta:

1. Would a yogi (with the power to heal) go around healing everyone and anyone, if he wanted to, by the grace of God and/or would he heal them if it was within their prarabdha/faith?

2. Do they ask for healing and/or would he offer it?

3. Did the yogi stumble upon his power to heal, seek the power to heal, and/or did God grace him with the power in order to use it?

HE is the director and one is an actor in the play called Samsara. One's duty and right therefore ends at performing, as willed by HIM.

The true Yogi committed to the path of 'Saranagati' (surrender to the Lord) does not impose his will as regards any matter, in this play of the Lord. He remains a willing tool in the hands of the higher power, letting that which happens to happen, as willed by the Lord. If the higher power wills for someone to be healed, using the Yogi as a medium, it occurs.

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."
