How to practice celibacy / brahmacharya?

There are two things in the world that one should not waste. One is money and other is semen. One should practice celbacy/bramacharya as much as possible. The ultimate extract of our nourishment is semen and it is dissipated and lost in sex or masturbation. There are certain nerves in the body that help preserve semen and this in turn protects the body. Therefore bramacharya should be preserved as much as possible. One should identify what are the consequences of sex and what are the benefits of practicing bramacharya.

The presence of bramacharya in the mind, the body and the speech results in wonderful power of mind, wonderful power of body and wonderful power of the speech.

Celibacy is the best tool for health and spiritual progress. Celibacy with exact understanding leads to ultimate bliss and moksha. With the exact understanding, one would be inclined to follow the path of celibacy/brahmacharya and would oppose sexuality from all aspects.

On this page, you will find a precise and clear road map on how to practice celibacy. People will be shocked to read the horrors of current and future dangers of sexuality and would say, 'We never knew this!'

Try It Yourself

Try It Yourself

Questioner: Sometimes circumstances arise that causes me to become involved in physical attraction and sexual thoughts, what should I do at that time?

Dadashri: Use the same experiment that I had used for myself. For me this experiment is constantly in place and it had kept me aware even before enlightenment. When my eyes fall on someone wearing beautiful clothes, a saree worth two thousand rupees, I become aware and my first vision see her without clothes. Then a second awareness arises and I see the body without the skin and then the third awareness arises and I see the intestines, the kind you see when the stomach is cut open. I can also see changes that occur within the intestines. I can see blood vessels; I can see fecal matter etc. I can see all the refuse this way. Then there is no chance of sexual impulse arising, is there? In all this, the Soul is the only pure thing and that is where my vision stops. Therefore how can any illusion over sex ever occur?

8 Keys to remain in Brahmacharya

8 Keys to remain in Brahmacharya

  1. Eradicate the sexual thought immediately. Do pratikraman for any attraction of a sexual nature. With these two weapons, celibacy / brahmacharya will remain forever.
  2. The women are not pulling and attracting you. It is your past life account that is pulling and attracting you. Therefore uproot and throw it (sexual impulses) away and clear the account.
  3. Now, from here on if you dose off, get attracted and tempted sexually with certain person, you have to ask for energy of celibacy / brahmacharya from the pure Soul of that person, by saying, 'O pure Soul! Give me the strength to maintain my brahmacharya with the entire world'. It is good if you ask for strength from 'Dada' but it is best to ask directly from the pure Soul of the person who is pulling you.
  4. How can sexuality remain if you see only the Soul of the person?
  5. Pratikraman and firm resolution (nischaya) are the armies to be maintained. Then the continued darshan of the 'Gnani Purush' is necessary. If you become remote from this darshan of the Gnani Purush you may have problems with celibacy / brahmacharya.
  6. You must do pratikraman as soon as sexuality arises through the meeting of the eyes.
  7. He who wants to practice celibacy / brahmacharya must not look with sexual intent at any one.
  8. You have to do pratikraman for all the mistakes that have occurred till today and make a firm decision not to repeat those mistakes in future.
