Question
Would a liberated Self ever wish to return to Samsara, effectively losing His self-realization or keeping realization to a certain extent (staying in a greater heavenly realm in comparison to Earth existence)?

Unbinding completely from the physical cosmos, what is eternity in heaven?

This cosmos includes infinite possibilities. Am I correct?

Answer
1. There is no wish as regards the liberated one, who is one with the infinite. Who is there to lose realization, after the one requiring realization is gone forever? The question does not arise. That alone remains. However, if willed by the infinite, there can again be a manifestation. Such aa one however stays realized, without being least affected by the unreal, whether manifest or unmanifest.

2. There is no heaven or hell in the truth. It is...is

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."
