Question
Hi sir,

It is me AL again with a question for you.

After my pratice of brahmacharya, I sometime wake up before my wet dream occur. Because of this sudden wake up and regain my conscious i manage to stop my wet dream from happening.

I came up with my own theory that lust and lust in wet dream tackle one with low conscious. Since one who sleep one conscious is not there, lust is able to control this nature state. When we are awake, we can t have wet dream but only in dream/asleep.

This is just a theory i came up with from my personal observation.

I would like to hear your view.

This may not be part of brahmacharya, but i believe your feedback would prove to be useful for those here who want to understand how wet dream manifest

Best regard,
Al
Om namo narayanaya

Answer
1. Wet dreams are caused when strong sexual Samskara-s (impressions), from within, surface and manifest through the subconscious mind.

2. While it may be occasionally possible to wake up and prevent such an occurrence, this will not be possible at all times.

3. The correct method is to root out the cause and not the symptom. The cause here is sexual Samskara-s formed through past or recent activity. Through a Yogic life of purity of thoughts & deeds and Sadhana resulting in meditation on the Atman (self), these are gradually dissolved, following which wet dreams taper and vacate.

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."
