Questioner: Does this mean that there is a
connection between brahmacharya and the experience of the
Dadashri: Of course there
is. That is the main point. With brahmacharya you can
achieve whatever you want to. With brahmacharya your
worldly aims will be accomplished. You will be able to follow your
vows and commitments. There is ease of further progress in all
directions. The extract of non-Self, brahmacharya is a
very important. If this is present it opens the Self.
No one has provided a real understanding on the subject of sex,
to anybody. That is because people themselves are involved in
sexuality. The saints and sages in the olden days were very sincere
and that is why they could talk and make people understand it.
"That sex is poison is not known. If they did know that sex is
poison, they would stay away from it. Therefore the Lord says that
the fruit of knowledge of the Self is continuity as the Self What
is the fruit of knowledge ? to stop, cease. one hasn't known the
danger of sex and therefore he does not stop."
"If there is anything to fear, it is the fear of sexuality.
There is no other reason, in this world, where fear is necessary.
Therefore, beware of sex, just like you would with snakes,
scorpions or a tiger."
After earning merit karmas over countless lives, one attains
birth in a family with good culture and high moral standing. But
all this is lost in pursuit of sex and money.
So many people ask me, 'What is there in
sex that my whole body feels like death after experiencing the
pleasure of sex, my mind dies and my speech dies?' I tell
them that all these people indulging in sexuality are already dead,
but because you have not awakened to this fact, the same condition
occurs again and again. Otherwise if ever brahmacharya is
preserved, each human being has so much energy. The knowledge of
the Self is the ultimate essence of time (samayasaar). This is real
awareness that increases the experience of the Self. And
brahmacharya is the essence of the living body.
The presence of brahmacharya in the mind, the body and
the speech results in wonderful power of mind, wonderful power of
body and wonderful power of the speech. What type of sexuality
existed in the times of Lord Mahavir? The sex was limited to having
one to two children. The Lord knew that this interaction would be
abused in this day and age, so he had to add the fifth vow of
It is a real wonder that humans are stuck in the terrible filth
of exploitation of the five senses. It is horrible heap of filth.
The world continues to move in this filth, because people do not
understand this. If one gives a moment's thought to this, then one
would understand that this truly is a heap of filth. It is nothing
but absolute filth. But people do not think at all. Why are human
beings stuck in such dirt? It is because they cannot find a cleaner
place (real happiness) anywhere else, therefore they continue to
lie in this filth.
