The Wonderful Health Benefits of Celibacy (Brahmacharya)

Updated on June 18, 2015
Source

It is worth repeating that a true celibate possesses tremendous energy, a clear brain, strong self-discipline, bold understanding, retentive memory, and a powerful mind.

One of the students of Dhanvantari approached his teacher after finishing his full course of Ayurveda (the ancient Indian science of medicine) and asked: "O Bhagavan, kindly let me know the secret of health now."

Dhanvantari replied: "This seminal energy is verily the Atman. The secret of health lies in preservation of this vital force. He who wastes this vital and precious energy cannot have physical, mental, moral, and spiritual development."

What Is Celibacy (Brahmacharya?)

Brahmacharya is absolute freedom from sexual thoughts and desires. It is the vow of celibacy. It is control of all the senses in thought, word, and deed.

Brahmacharya is not mere bachelorhood. There should be strict abstinence not merely from sexual intercourse but also from auto-erotic manifestations, masturbation, homosexual acts, and all perverse sexual practices. It also means a permanent abstention from indulgence in erotic imagination and voluptuous reverie.

Don’t Waste the Vital Energy

The vital energy Veerya is a great treasure to you. It supports your life and is the Prana (life-force) of Pranas, which shines in your sparkling eyes and beams in your shining cheeks. It is the quintessence of blood.

From food, chyle is manufactured. Out of chyle comes blood. Out of blood comes flesh. Out of flesh comes fat. Out of fat comes marrow. Out of marrow comes semen. Semen is the last essence.

The Effect of Wasting Your Semen

Those who have lost much of their semen become easily irritated. They lose their balance of mind quickly. Little things upset them. Those who have not observed the vow of celibacy become slaves of anger, laziness, and fear. If you do not have your senses under control, you will do foolish things that even children dare not do.

Note carefully the evil after effects once the Veerya is lost. Prana becomes unsteady and agitated. The body and mind refuse to work energetically. You experience physical and mental lethargy as well as exhaustion and weakness.

You have to take recourse to milk, fruits, and other foods to make good the loss of energy. Remember, these articles can never repair the loss completely. Bad memory, premature old age, impotence, various sorts of eye diseases, and nervous diseases are attributable to the heavy loss of this vital fluid.

Celibacy Is the Most Important Way to Maintain Manliness

Pure air, pure water, wholesome food, physical exercise, and outdoor games like tennis all contribute to the maintenance of good health, strength, and a high standard of vigour and vitality.

There are, indeed, many ways to gain health and strength. But celibacy is the most important of all. It is the only one that keeps up true manliness.

The practice of celibacy carries no danger or risk of disease. There are no undesirable results such as the various sorts of 'complexes' that Western psychologists believe to exist. These pyschologists have no practical knowledge of the subject on hand. They have a wrong and ill-founded imagination that ungratified sex-energy assumes the forms of a 'complex' such as touch-phobia.

Instead, the complex is due to other causes. It is a morbid state of mind caused by excessive jealousy, hatred, anger, worry, and depression, all of which have their own sources.

    Ashutosh,

    Start doing yoga or gym. And you will find there would be more control on self than usual. It also lot depends on people of friends in which you spend time. Have friends with good attitude and find the passion or work which you interest lot from inner self to be happy and successful in life..

    Best wishes!!

    I posted 19 months ago as "zero wing". I stopped masturbating at age 30 (nine years ago). As I mentioned in my previous post, my life has improved a lot. I will not masturbate or have sex until I die. The topic of celibacy fascinates me because I think it's the first step in self-improvement, whether mundane or spiritual. Please visit my blog; I hope it can help you guys.

    Brahmacharya is everything you are looking for. Go for it gradually. It takes years of effort. Fight like a champion. When you get established in the state of brahmacharya, you will heal all your problems so quickly it's like a miracle. Then you will never think of going back to your old harmful ways. You will have so much energy that you will not know what to do with it. Every people will look at you and wonder where did you acquire that overall healthy glow. The process will accelerate in time... First it might seem that not much is happening. Be patient. Read only about Brahmacharya and learn. Lose drinking and smoking, media, eating animal products and other useless activities behind. Forget all the modern theories about health. There is no health in modern society. You cannot reap the benefits without a spiritual context. Do yoga, help your family. Grow up. Brahmacharya is a great charity for the whole world.

    Contract the pelvic muscles for stopping nocturnal emissions. This is easy. You will do it automatically in time.

    There is no reason to worry about the damage done to oneself. Use it only for motivation not to do any such thing in the future. God has a lot of mercy. The more young you are, the more quickly you will heal. If you are somewhat at your twenties, you will probably make close to 100% recovery if you do spotless Brahmacharya combined with all necessary healing methods. Stop hurting yourself and everyone around you THIS DAY!

    This is the most serious matter for a man. Sadly only few persons know the truth.

    I think celibacy is one tool to achieve anything in this world, but more importantly to achieve GOD. In all upanishads the importance of celibacy is well explained. One cannot balance on two boats keeping his two legs on each boat . One cannot have sex pleasure and GOD at the same time and it works like a switch . If somebody wants GOD, success, health switch over to celibacy . Most of the first benchers in the class who gets good ratings are celibate which brings them success in future life.

    WE all know that certain biochemicals are responsible for diseases and imbalances in body often when we see whenever passion fear anger or sexual impulse arise in my mind there are lot of imbalances in these chemicals the body temp rises palpitations increase respiratory rate ,tremors ,shaking, itches we lead a sort of storm inside our body system without realizing the consequences at persuasion of lust or passion one commit adultery at stronger urges he rapes at even stronger urges he commit serious crimes in anger he kills in greed he steals in adversity he takes liquor and commit all sort of crimes are there any end to disorder by leading a moral life one never excites or evokes such imbalances leads a balanced life pure life which is worthy rewarding sex can ruin your life and somebody else life passion can be rooted out only if one sacrifices and live a simple life also practicing brahmacharya is essential as it is biggest sacrifice one is quitting craving and fells very much independent and confident when he live in state of brahmacharya only way to lead a pure life

    I think there are two ways to achieve hormonal balance. One is the "natures way" to ejaculate regularly and thereby balancing everything. The other way is not to do it. Because after 2 months the body regulates itself to a new form of balance never to be experienced if one pauses only for some week, then its often coupled with struggles and tensions. So the energy system can be trained to hold semen. And body is wise enough to regulate everything itself.

    From the time I was a teenager I suffered the tortures of the damned for many long years trying to retain semen. It was to no avail. I could not prevent myself from masturbating at least once a month or so.

    Then one day when weightlifting shortly after ejaculating twice that same morning I squatted with the heaviest weight ever to break my own personal record. A few weeks later I rode the best bicycle time trial for 25 miles I had ever achieved right after masturbating and ejaculating. Then I read an article stating how Muhammed Ali was a virtual "pelvic missionary" with his semen, and how Joe Frazier went six months without sex proving is great strength. But on their first fight even though Joe won, he was the one hospitalized after it, and in their second fight he was demolished. Then I read the studies showing frequent ejaculation in the ages between 20 and 30 resulted in reduced chances of prostate cancer.

    I am 77 years old, and I ejaculate at least a couple of times a week. In the last few years I have doubled the weight of the barbell for 20 squats

    and decreased my refractory period under an hour. I am steadily gaining weight, and getting stronger in weightlifting and faster in my swimming bicycling and running. I am thinking more easily, faster and clearer everyday, and when I do rarely get sick with flu or a cold I throw it faster than I did as young man and teen ager.

    According to these spiritual teachers I should be growing old and feeble and insane because of my terrible lusts for sexual pleasure, yet the fact is my sexual orgasms and pleasure are increasing with my physical and mental fitness. Why is that?

    This is all so very true. No real spiritual development or growth is possible without Brahmacharya. Actually it is the first step. The fuel is the sexual energy that is converted to the spiritual. With no fuel no spiritual energy. Read Sivanandas books and gets inspired. He was a great Saint.

    Hello Zen and Ram

    The negative energy will attack in any moment in brahmacharya life, at the time of controlling lust the deep routed samsakaras and vasana(tendencies) under the mind slowly come up and it has more power , So one's attitude must be like " I will not give up Brahmacharya in any condition"

    Hello Ram Keep brahmacharya and improve the number of Nadishodhana pranayama , It will reduce your mentioned symtopms

    Ram, nightfalls do not harm you so much as you wrote. People suffer more after erotic manifestation, when they lose semen aroused by lust and passion. If you did not masturbate as much as others, you can recover quick from nightfall loss, theoretically you should avoid watching at erotic/sex scenes, and avoid any erotic thought, in other words you should be celibate in your thoughts too. This is a matter of time. But I do not know how much it will Take in my situation.

    If anyone can tell us, for those who lost lots of semen, how should we practice brahmacharya? What in general happens in our bodies when we stop erotic behaviour like masturbate and erotic dreams? Please enlighten us the lost ones in this world.

    Dhananjay, so I won't have this feeling anymore? Without this feeling I'm so childish, afraid of socializing, why then I should practice celibacy if this won't fix my problem? If this benefits are just temporary :(. I actually suffer from masturbation/porn effects. I'm not watching xxx movies for 1 year. I feel like this activity killed everything in me and left only fear, anxiety, low self-esteem and low will-power. Why other people wrote here that practicing celibacy feel fearless, life is suffering :(.

    The first week of abstinence results in increased testosterone along with other hormones which gives the high feeling. As these stabilize and settle down, the artificial high also comes down.

    Alright guys, I want to start again to practice celibacy, last tine I couldn't handle with Wet Dreams so I left it.

    I have just a question, during my celibacy path if I get erected from my wife(you know all it is a natural stimuli), how can I deal with it? What reactions happens in our bodies when we spontaneosly get erected? Will we lose our gains in practicing celibacy from just get erected(with not ejaculation) ?

    Please answer, probably this îs my problem why I had so many WD during my lat celibacy practice.

    I was addicted to masturbation from the age of 16 and even started spending all my money on prostitutes at 22. By the time I was 30, my life had deteriorated from an ambitious university-educated middle class nerd to a skinny gutter-dwelling degenerate. At 30 I decided to become celibate once and for all, and my life has improved so much it's almost amazing. I am stronger and smarter and fearless. I've lifted weights for seven years and I've transformed from a timid nerd to a surprisingly strong and confident nerd. If I don't wear my glasses I don't look like a nerd anymore. I still haven't recovered my former innocence, and I don't know if I even can in this lifetime; I did so many bad things before I became celibate. During the past year I had sex a few times with some girls I met online, but I've never masturbated since I turned 30. I will never marry and I will never have sex or masturbate again until I die. I hope I'm reborn into a better body and a better country in my next life.

    Hi Sachin

    Nightfall will be only after 3.30 a.m afterwards , try to wake up on 3.30 A.M as per the Shivananda sayings, Mula banda (a treasure for brahmacharis) can help you to stop nightfall. Try to read Bagavat Gita , or other inspiring brahmacharya quotes before you going to sleep .( I will describe you a new site on for brahmacharya:- first go to Google, type BRAHMACHARYA EXPERTS, click on first result, You can see "Dhananjay on the side of window click on him and see various quries and ask your doubt to him) okay

    I forgot to ask my question.

    I have changed from eating white refined salt to eating Sea salt and Himalayan Rock salt.

    I am also having hot baths with Himalayan Rock salt added to help rid my body of toxins.

    My question is that will sitting in hot water for an hour or longer be bad for my semen or kill it? Or is this not a bad thing to do. I want to stay in the hot water to purify myself and for my body to absorb the health giving salt.

    I have read that if you stop masterbating you will stop producing semen and that the energy that was spent on semn production will be spent on repairing the health of the other bodily organs.

    So even if the hot water does kill the semen, if I have stopped producing semen does it matter?

    This page has given me increased hope that I will recover and that the decision I have made of my own accord has lead me into a new direction and I have found a new interest to study Brahmacharya.

    This has given me a direction that I am very happy to have found, just like a blind man that has found some vision...

    Since 1997 I abused alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, caffiene, junk food, sex, masterbation and Porn. I became unwell and lost my energy. My memory became poor, I lost my confidence and my speech became bad. I became very stressed and suffered from anxiety, fear, depression, seclution, bad health, pains in my liver, bladder, stomach. I Became allergic to many different foods. My skin became terrible, I suffered pimples, rashes, itchiness. My peronality changed from happy and good natured into bad moods, arguing with people, getting angry, upset, shouting at people, Thinking bad thoughts and believing that I was becoming serious illness soon.

    I ended up where I did not enjoy meeting people anymore and would spend my days on my own. In the year 2003 I started to try and cure myself. I tried every diet. I quit drinking, smoking and drugs and tried to do excersise. But the tiredness always keeps coming back.

    Lest Nove 2011 I suffered from a Nervous breakdown where I had to finish work where I had been for 32 years because I was too tired out. I was exhausted and had developed "ADRENAL EXHAUSTION"..

    Since the start of this year I have tried to eat as healthy as possible and since th 19th of March I finally quit caffiene. On the 21st I decided to stop masterbating. I have been studying all activities that make the adrenal glands work and I found out that masterbation or sex is one of the things. I decided to try to become completely celebate and to to lose any more seman in order to help my adrenal glands recover.

    Other activities that work the adrenal glands are "white sugar" "Rifined salt" "white flour", "stress" "anger" "jealousy" "hatred" "all negative thoughts" "Overexercising/overtraining" "Overwork".

    For complete adreanal exhaustion cure, rest is important and a simple diet with no processed foods.

I feel exhausted, does that mean that all my experience gained will drain away? :(, When I practice brahamcharya I become Brave, corageous, less fear, my memory is better. And after my semen loss, means that I again lose all what I've gained? I already have fear that I'll be again a coward, in a lethargy state with a low memory :( As I was before starting brahmacharya :((( until I have to replenish my goal :/

    Hey guys I'm not an yoga practicant, never was, I even have no the smallest idea of it, so in conclusion, brahmacharya is good only for yogis?

    Cause people write here, that you also have to do some pranayamas and other kinds of yoga...

    Look guys, I'm a western one :), I work much, I don't have time to practice yoga or pranayama( don't what's that) so that means that brahmacharya will not work for me?

    1. It is never late to adopt a life of Brahmacharya. Better late than never. Brahmacharya is one’s default way of life. It is the true state of the Atman (soul). Everyday of practice gives its benefits. It offers the chance for a better spiritual, mental and physical state now and in the next birth. Hence by all means can the practice be taken up.

    2. The merits include good health, strength and well being, a clear and calm mind that helps one function better and stay happy, spiritual development leading to lessening of past karma and overall improvement in all fields of life. Brahmacharya should be practiced in thought, word and deed with adequate physical (asana or exercise), mental work and spiritual (meditative) activity. There are no demerits.

    3. Sexual energy which is conserved is directed towards other constructive activities which may include physical exercise, asana, sports, mental work (as in one’s job), hobbies etc… and meditation. In other words, one will have much energy and zest to perform any activity of one’s choice to satisfaction. As the aspirant advances, he will get drawn to deeper meditation that leads to much joy and peace of mind.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for giving such a greatful information. Actually I am suffering the effects of Masturbation. I have this habit from past 13 yrs, Now I am working in reputed company by god blessing. I was having poor concentration,low confidence and weak attitude during my college life. Now also I am suffering effects of masturbation. I cant work properly or speak with people confidently. I need to overcome this problem. By reading these comments I got the core reason why I am feeling 24rs Laziness,tired,feared to speak with people and not social. Now I am thinking for celibacy and will start it soon.

    If I will start it from now then can I get the benefits of celebacy? Can I overcome the loss of energy? Can I overcome my absentmindness ?

    You are right.But the most important thing is our determination for bramcharya.Everyday determination of bramcharya is necessary if we forget it only 2 days, we donot take it even 2 or 3 months.So constant awareness is necessary and if u want follow bramcharya long-life it is necessary to read bramcharya quotes everyday for motivation.I regularly read it. It is really beneficial for celibacy.Not to much emotional be practical!!!

    brahmacharya can best be attained by understanding the nature of sexuality! If we write down the advantages and disadvantages of maturbation or sex, we can easily conclude that B'charya is the most important tool health and spiritual progress. Western People oppose celibacy because its impossible for them to practise celbacy. But here in India its possible due to our rich spirituality! This is proven by many of great people in india at present like Pujya Deepakbhai Desai, Shri Shri Ravishankar, Baba Ramdev, Anna Hazare, etc. and whoever practises celibacy for such long time has a wonderfull power of mind and speech! and this has been proven by these great leaders! They are the real heroes of India!

    Hey guys, now that I discovered the power of brahmacharya I can tell this to anyone what benefits it brings, I'd like to share with you my story as it is. For 4 years I've been masturbating on porn, I was really addicted, and lost to much semen, I recieved almost all the bad side-effects from wasting to much semen. I could not have sex with real females because my potention fell down so much, like I was an old man in my 20'es. I thought that I will never have a girlfriend, with time going on, God sent me a beauyfull girl and very trustfull, a kind one. Now that I found what was the problem, the main idea that I lost my power of will, my erections, my concentration, my healthy way of thinking, I told her that we're not going to make any s*x, now that I want to practice brahmacharya because I want to live again, she is suffering from this, she thinks I'm ignoring her, and I feel sorry for this stupid situation, I'm actually at the 4th week of sexual abstinence, now I feel that I'm regaining power, now I really think and want to work more, I'm more atractted to people, my fame comes back, fears are going away from me. But I still feel unconofrtable with this, I do not want to lose my gf, I love her much, and she loves me much. I'm passing through hard times, I went her to be happy, but i'm affraid of losing her. What can I do? She trusted in me all the time, she won't ever leave me, but shr won't ever understand me, why I should I practice brahmacharya.

    A wet dream in the general sense is the expression of unfulfilled desires in the awake state, during the dream state. If sexual wants and desires are let to blossom while we are awake and consequently suppressed, they manifest in the form of erotic/ sexual dreams which may or may not lead to a wet dream (emission of vital fluid). If the intensity and involvement in the sexual fantasy is very strong and deep while awake, there is a high possibility that the erotic dream might turn into a wet dream, i.e a dream accompanied by emission of vital fluid. Again milder indulgences in fantasies during the awake state might produce a sexual dream of lesser intensity, but without emission.

    If a celibate practices true celibacy in thought, word and deed for a long period of time he can reach a state where he no longer has wet dreams. This state he reaches, further to elimination of most gross and subtle impurities in his physical, astral and causal bodies. If at all there is an occasional emission of fluid, it will mostly be a small amount of prostatic fluid being flushed out by the prostate gland for occasional cleansing (such emissions will not be accompanied by erotic/ sexual thoughts or fantasies). In fact the subject might not even know when the fluid came out as he would have experienced deep dreamless sleep and finds a very small amount of fluid emitted upon getting awake. This is accompanied by a sense of freshness and wellbeing, unlike a nocturnal sexual wet dream which results in weakness, dullness, depression and a sense of guilt. Such cleansing in a true celibate is very occasional like say once or twice a year. It does not fall in the category of a erotic wet dream which is debilitating.

    Elaborating whether I experience or don't experience wet dreams might be a little out of context as it would result in self-promotion. But I can vouch for the fact that wet dreams stop or almost come to a standstill once gross and subtle impurities (toxins) have been removed to a large extent. Again one never knows if the level of purity one has attained is really enough for life long stoppage, except by future experiences of success or failure. It is best to bear in mind that we are students in this path and be alert and humble.

    To sum it up, a celibate has to constantly be on guard against the onslaught of senses which can stir up the latent lust present within. No amount of effort is enough, for we are always short of the mark by a few degrees. The day we think ourselves to be beyond lust, that day we fail and get to see our short comings. We see there's 'So little done and so much to do'. But with constant perseverance and devotion to god, success will ultimately come. As to when one succeeds in reaching this state beyond lust, Lord Krishna tells us in the Bhagavad-Gita:

    " The objects of senses but not their relish turn away from the abstemious man. Even the relish turneth away after one has realized the supreme " - Chap.II verse 59, The Bhagavad-Gita

    Which means:- A man by restricting his senses may refrain from the objects of sense enjoyment, but the taste for enjoyment remains. Even this taste leaves man after he has realized the supreme.

    So till the final goal called self-realization is achieved, one is ever a student and ever prone to onslaught of the senses. He may fall from his state of celibacy at any point of time if not vigilant. Only honest effort and humility can help one reach the goal.

    the answer to Anonymous:

    yeah ur doing right..try to follow celibacy as much as possible. at least, you are following celibacy physically: which is a good thing-you can go ahead with more practice. even sometimes if ur mind diverts towards girls, don't feel upset and think that u have lost the battle. continue avoiding as much as possible. It is good that you have stopped masturbating at the age of 17 itself- best of luck in the coming years, you are going great.
