Question
Among all the major world religions which is closer to the truth in your opinion, one or many religions?

Many people who practice religion very deeply have faith only in their form of worship and say that my denomination is corrupt because it is not found in the Bible. They even say if one do not believe correctly one is lost. In my opinion, lot of people don't understand what is religion. Doesn't religions change over time?

Answer
1. All true religions aim at the truth alone. Different people find different religions appealing, based on their individual nature.

2. What one says or doesn't is of no account. The truth remains as it is.

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."
