Question
I just want to confirm what Julian said about masturbation and the outer dream projector, causing fatality and untimely, horrible death. A few months ago a 15 year old boy died in Caledonian Road after being fatally stabbed in the chest- does this mean that he masturbated too much since about 13, more than 5 times everyday, to cause this unfortunate fatality and could he have averted this fate if he had saved more of his semen, did pints of inner blood as semen which is worth 80 drops of pure blood, result in his outer blood injury by a stab wound to the chest, causing his death, if a brahmachari who had never spilled his semen for 2-3 years had been cut with a knife, would his injury have been non fatal, as it is said his body becomes very strong and hard as vraja- and his outer world dream upgrades.

Answer
1. 'Prarabdha karma' (that which is destined to work out in this existence) cannot be side stepped. Through a life of Brahmacharya carried out to realize the self alone, one gets the wisdom to prevent future unwanted karma.

2. While the body & mind acquire great strength through Brahmacharya, one should let go of fascination for these and instead focus on residing in the self. He who fancies the powers of the body & mind deprives himself of residence in the Atman (self).

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."
