The Secret of Health and Celibacy

Updated on April 27, 2011

By the practice of Brahmacharya Celibacy, longevity, glory, strength, vigour, knowledge, wealth, undying fame, virtues and devotion to the truth increase.

Through Brahmacharya (Celibacy) one gets over the miseries of mundane life and attain health, strength, peace of mind, endurance, bravery, material progress, psychic advancement and immortality

For the maintenance of good health and strength, clean air and water, a wholesome vegetarian food, physical exercise like yoga exercise, running, brisk walking,  and other outdoor games is needed. There are indeed many ways to gain health and strength. These ways are doubtless indispensably requisite. But, practicing celibacy is the most important of all. Without conserving your sexual fluid, all your exercises are nothing. It is the master-key for opening the realms of health and longevity. It is the only specific that keeps up true manliness.

The preservation of sexual fluid is the secret of health and longevity, and of all success in the physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual planes. He who has even a little bit of celibacy will tide over a crisis of any disease very easily. If it takes a month for an ordinary man for recovery, this man will be completely all right in a week.The eye is the window of the mind. If the mind is pure and calm, the eye also is calm and steady. He who is established in strict celibacy will have lustrous eyes, a sweet voice and a beautiful complexion.

Those who have lost much of their sexual fluid become easily lose their balance of mind and easily irritated and even a little things upset them. Those who have not observed the vow of celibacy become slaves of anger, laziness and fear.

When the sexual energy is lost the body and mind refuse to work energetically. There is physical and mental lethargy. Exhaustion and weakness are experienced.

Heavy loss of this vital fluid brings Bad memory, premature old age, impotence, various sorts of eye diseases and nervous diseases. You have to take recourse to milk, yogurt,  fruits and other articles to make good the loss of energy but remember that these articles can never repair loss.

Practice of celibacy gives good health, inner strength, peace of mind and long life. It invigorates the mind and the nerves. It helps to conserve physical and mental energy. It augments memory, will force and brain power. It bestows tremendous strength, vigour and vitality. Strength and fortitude are obtained

After Dhanvantari had taught all the details about Ayurveda to his disciples, they enquired about the keynote of this medical science. The Master replied, "I tell you that Brahmacharya is truly a precious jewel. It is the one most effective medicine—nectar indeed—which destroys diseases, decay and death. For attaining peace, brightness, memory, knowledge, health and Self-realization, one should observe Brahmacharya."

How to Practice Celibacy

1. Approach a bonafide spiritual master who practice celibacy and inquire from him submissively.

2. Engage in saddhana Bhakti (practicing devotional service to the Supreme Lord. under the guidance of a  bonafide spiritual master.

3. Practice mantra meditation (Meditation on the Holy Names of God.)

Spiritual life means coming out of the influence of the current of lust and coming under the influence the current of spiritual love.

The saintly person comes to spread the current of spiritual love. Let us jump into that current so that we can be carried away by it. By hearing and chanting transcendental sounds we come under the current of spiritual love on the other hand by hearing mundane sound vibrations our consciousness becomes bound by the current of lust.

      I was curious to see the hub when I read your title.

      I believe it cannot be true for all: It can be true for some. True love comes only from God and all other loves we know are based on His Perfection.

      Interesting and unusual article, and I dare to submit my comment for your view. Thank you.
