*SPIRITUAL DON’TS FOR SUCCESS IN LIFE AND GOD’S REALISATION*
We have completed the 11 DON’T in SADHANA. By continuing sadhana of the 11 don’ts.
*Today we Begin with DON’TS in BRAHMACHARYA*
Brahmacharya is freedom from sexual thoughts and desires. It is control of Indriyas in thought, word and deed. It is both for men and women. Bhishma, Hanuman, Lakshmana,Mira Bai, Sulabha and Gargi were all Brahmacharins. Sankara says: “Brahmacharya or spotless chastity is the best of all penances. Such a celibate is God, indeed!”
One who has perfect control over sexual energy attains powers unobtainable by any other means.
No spiritual progress is possible without the practice of celibacy. Virya is a dynamic force. It should be converted into Ojas Sakti. Those who are very eager to have God-realisation should observe unbroken celibacy strictly. Observe the vow of Brahmacharya strictly.
Don’t waste your Veerya (semen).
Too much loss of semen is the chief cause of irritability and anger. Passion is the root, and anger the stem. You will have to destroy the root (passion) first. Then the stem (anger) will die by itself. A passionate man is more angry. A man who has wasted his seminal energy becomes irritated soon for little things even. A Brahmachari who has preserved his Veerya always keeps a balanced mind. He has a cool brain at all times.
