of Celibacy - Lifelong celibacy
Yoga Celibacy - involuntary celibacy
In today's discussion
on celibacy we are covering following chapters of celibacy: vow
of celibacy, lifelong celibacy, yoga celibacy and involuntary celibacy!
Vow of Celibacy
A vow of celibacy
is necessitated for traveler of spiritual path... never otherwise!
Those who do not pursue a spiritual goal of life need not take a
vow of celibacy! The practice of celibacy demands highest level
of perfection that can ever be achieved by human beings! Controlling
sensuality is very difficult to practice yet, not impossible!
One must never
indulge in a vow of celibacy just as rhetoric... for the sake of
it! For traveling spiritual path... a vow of celibacy is necessitated
for a continuous period of 12 years! Not a single lapse in the entire
cycle of 12 years is permitted. A single lapse in vow of celibacy...
we need repeating the whole process of 12 years again!
For full awakening
of kundalini energy... for activating kundalini shakti in totality...
a practice of absolute celibacy for a period of 12 years in continuation
is an absolute must! It is only by full awakening of kundalini shakti
human beings finally reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
and finally salvation (moksha)!
man god like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed
and (in the last about 150 years) Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and
Maharishi Ramana... all took a vow of celibacy in the earlier stages
of life! By transmuting stored sexual energy and redirecting it
towards the only goal of life is what absolute celibacy is all about!
sensuality in a world full of beautiful ladies is very difficult
to practice yet, not impossible! For an ardent practitioner of spirituality
nothing is impossible! In the earlier stages of life I wanted to
see and meet God. By hit and trial method I realized that sexual
energy is the most potent of all energies available to mankind!
this intangible energy... human beings could reach rather cross
any barrier of mundane life finally reaching domain of God Almighty
in ones lifetime! The essence of life is... whatever we desire to
do we have to accomplish it in present lifespan of 70 to 80 years!
As we do not know what we shall be in next manifestation... we have
to make all our attempts now... In present life!
We just cannot
leave things to chance! In the domain of God there never are free
lunches. All is governed by inscrutable laws of karma... as we sow
so shall we reap nothing less or more! It is our karma alone that
decides our journey of life. Destiny is not manifested by grace
of God Almighty. Human beings manifested destiny by practicing absolute
celibacy in real life!
a highly accomplished saint of his era on sighting a maiden woman
taking bath in forlorn circumstances in deep dense jungles (forests)
fell from grace... he had to repeat the practice of celibacy all
over again! Sage Vishwamitra was a contemporary of Sage Vashistha.
He always thought that he was way ahead of Sage Vashistha.
ways of God Almighty! It was God Almighty who created all the drama
resulting in Sage Vishwamitra losing his face in society! Sage Vishwamitra
had a lot of anger that he found unable to contain. To teach him
a lesson... to restrain Sage Vishwamitra from baring his anger in
public... the lesson of celibacy was called for!
who indulged in a vow of celibacy have to contain sexual indulgences
to a maximum of two per month (one is desirable)! On the path of
pure celibacy... one or two indulgences per month are permitted...
never more! I again repeat... a single lapse... and everything needs
to be repeated again!
Such a strict
regimen on path of pure celibacy is necessitated as God Almighty
does not desire every Jack and Jill reaching stage of enlightenment!
Enlightenment is not that easily gained. In the last about 150 years'
world over only two persons succeeded in reaching stage of enlightenment...
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana!
is necessitated to be practiced by travelers of spiritual path alone!
Those living a mundane life... need not practice lifelong celibacy
at all! Lifelong celibacy in spiritual terminology spelt practicing
absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation!
Lifelong celibacy just does not mean practicing celibacy every year
Why is celibacy
necessitated for a period of 12 years in continuation? For serious
seekers of spirituality... those desirous of reaching God in present
life time... practicing absolute celibacy continuously for 12 years
is a requirement of spiritual path! Lifelong celibacy is necessitated
only for reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally
Once a human
being after practicing absolute celibacy for a period of 12 years
in continuation succeeds in full awakening of kundalini... one need
not practice lifelong celibacy further! But for an enlightened one
whose kundalini has fully awakened... indulgence in a sexual relationship
carries no further meaning! One finally rises above mundane affairs
is necessitated in terms of practicing pure spirituality! Why? Pure
celibacy does not mean abstention from sexual indulgence alone!
The physical part hardly constitutes 10% of the total job! 90% celibacy
is practiced mentally. Stopping the flow of negative thoughts to
our brain is what absolute celibacy is all about!
purity of thought all the time... practice of lifelong celibacy
is a necessity... a compulsion of spiritual path! For stopping the
flow of negative thoughts to our brain... we need establishing absolute
control over five senses and mind. The moment this happens... one
finally reached stage of Nirvikalpa samadhi... the stage of absolute
Once we succeed
in stopping flow of negative thoughts to our brain... the flow of
positive thoughts also reduced gradually! Surrounded by a serene
environment... thinking lofty thoughts... a practitioner of spirituality
never further indulges in things ephemeral! Establishing a sexual
relationship with a married partner or a girlfriend seems out of
On the path
of pure spirituality... there is practically no space for indulgence
in a sexual relationship! For reaching domain of God... one needs
cutting across all shackles of ephemeral life! Something unthinkable
in West still, people continue practicing celibacy that carries
no meaning in spiritual world!
clergy is absolutely unaware of true meaning of practicing celibacy!
In West practice of celibacy is associated with abstention from
sexual relationship alone! This is a wrong definition of celibacy!
Celibacy needs to be practiced as was practiced by Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ, Prophet Mohammed, Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
or Maharishi Ramana!
The word celibacy
is directly related to field of spirituality! Celibacy truly can
be termed as an act of yoga... a part of yoga meditation! It is
only by practice of absolute celibacy human beings finally reached
pinnacle of spiritual pursuit... the 8.4 millionth manifestation...
the last in cosmic life cycle when human beings gained enlightenment
and finally salvation!
relates to field of spirituality can be termed yoga! Why? The term
yoga has been derived from the root word yog that in Hindi means...
the process of synthesizing between the two! In Hindi two yog two
equals four! The effort of our soul atman to merge with greater
atman... God Almighty himself is what yoga meditation is all about!
It is only by
practice of yoga celibacy human beings finally reached God! Yoga
celibacy demands one maintaining a celibate relationship for a minimum
period of 12 years in continuation! Practice of celibacy mantra
is necessitated for reaching end goal of life... the last stage
of cosmic life cycle when human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!
forms part of yoga celibacy! As per celibacy mantra we have only
three relationships with woman... that of a mother, sister or daughter!
There is never a fourth relationship! For practitioners of celibacy
maintaining a sexual relationship with wife or girlfriend means
limiting our sexual indulgence to a maximum of two per month (one
As per Hinduism
beliefs... our body itself is clothing for our soul atman... the
spirit within! For reaching God... for reaching stage of enlightenment
and finally salvation... human beings have to finally rise above
mundane affairs of life... transcend all barriers of physical manifest
life... crossover shackles of Samsara (worldly life) forever!
For a true seeker
of spirituality... maintaining a sexual relationship does not mean
anything! We just cannot while away our energies through pure physical
channels! Traveling path of spirituality... for practicing yoga
celibacy in its truest sense we have to channelised sexual energy
towards the ultimate goal of life... reaching God in ones lifetime!
we have kundalini yoga, karma yoga... we also practice celibacy
In the field
of pure spirituality practice of involuntary celibacy carries no
meaning! Celibacy always needs to be practiced voluntarily! We have
to curtail the flow of negative thoughts to our brain at all costs!
Simultaneously we also needed to limit our sexual indulgences to
a maximum of two per month (one is desirable)!
It is only then
one can practice absolute celibacy truthfully in its entirety! Something
that did not originate voluntarily carries no meaning in spiritual
world! Non-indulgence in sexual activity involuntarily does not
mean much in field of spirituality! True practice of celibacy demands
our establishing absolute control over five senses and mind!
To stop flow
of negative thoughts to our brain in totality... we need practicing
absolute celibacy as ordained in Hinduism! The meaning of celibacy
understood world over is grossly wrong! Abstaining from a sexual
relationship alone does not constitute practice of celibacy! There
is much more to that in practice of absolute celibacy!
absolute celibacy, establishing absolute control over five senses
and mind demands highest level of perfection that can ever be achieved
by human beings! Only then one can hope to become a Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed in practical life!
in Hinduism... the sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... every single
human being has the potential to become a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha,
Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed! Becoming a man God is the ultimate
goal of life of every living form including human beings!
by God Almighty... it is only in human form one finally reaches
stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!
The human form being the highest manifest stage in cosmic life cycle...
true celibacy needs to be practiced by human beings alone!
practice of celibacy does not mean anything as inherently one long
for sexual relationship all the time! Overpowering all feelings
of sensuality in totality is what celibacy is all about! On sighting
a member of opposite sex if our sensuality remains unperturbed...
we definitely are a serious seeker of spirituality... not otherwise!
Similar as one
with empty stomach does not sing praises of God... one practicing
involuntary celibacy is carrying out ones duties as was ordained
by God Almighty! One bound to remain within confines of system does
not mean... one is not affected by sensual thoughts! Curtailing
sensuality in totality is what absolute celibacy is all about!
For an enlightened
one... sexual indulgences... indulgence by body... the physical
manifest body does not mean anything! For an enlightened one the
body itself becomes an outer covering... a garment for our inner
soul within... the true master and controller of human body! It
is path of spirituality that spells our underlying relationship
with our soul atman... the spirit within!
in Hinduism... our soul atman... the spirit within is the absolute
master and controller of human form and not vice versa! Every soul
atman manifests a total of 8.4 million bodies in its lifetime of
which 1.1 million manifestations occur in human form. It is only
by practice of absolute celibacy human beings finally reached God
in their lifetime!
millionth manifestation by liberated soul atman announces a direct
entry into abode of God... kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)!
Having entered Vaikuntha... the kingdom of God... the liberated
soul atman remains there until eternity (i.e. until dissolution
of cosmos occurs... termed Pralaya in Hinduism). Kingdom of God
is a place of no return!
