Celibacy/Abstinence/Preserving your seed in summer


It is easier to preserve your seed (Bindu) in winters when Moon energy is at its peak. But in Summers, it becomes very difficult to preserve seed when Sun energy regains its strength. It becomes even more difficult for a person with predominant fire element. Would you please share with us how you remain blessed in this situation? And please educate us on whole mechanism on this regard.

Stay Blessed!

1. Through merging the mind into the self, the seasons do not trouble. This is the correct method.

2. One can take recourse to other methods to cool the fire element in the body such as oil head bath etc.

ॐ तत् सत्

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."
