Celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata

Query: Celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata... true meaning and purport as per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!


Kaivalya Jnani :
Practice of Celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata involved practising sexual abstinence for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation for reaching cosmic end of life... stage of self realization... God realization... termed enlightenment in English! Apart from practice of sexual abstinence that constituted physical aspect of celibacy... 90% celibacy needs to be practiced mentally!

Sexual abstinence... physical aspect of celibacy hardly constituted 10% of total job! 90% celibacy is always practiced mentally. Eradicating flow of negative thoughts to our brain in totality is what pure celibacy is all about! Most human beings related celibacy to sexual abstinence alone. This is an absolute misnomer as per sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!

As per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... practice of Celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata was necessitated for a serious seeker of spirituality... one who desired reaching God in present life! For reaching God in present life... continuous practice of Brahmacharya Vrata for 12 years was necessitated... one could not do without!

Those who thought... full awakening of kundalini was possible via path of sexual indulgence are an ignorant lot! Unless we practiced Brahmacharya Vrata... celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation... one never succeeded in full awakening of kundalini shakti... the coiled Serpentine energy lying dormant in base of spine!

On path of pure spirituality... practice of celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata was necessitated for full awakening of Kundalini Shakti. In absence of practice of Brahmacharya Vrata... full awakening of Kundalini Shakti would always remain a dream! Practice of absolute celibacy... Brahmacharya Vrata is not that easy as many people world over thought!


In the last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over... only two persons succeeded in full awakening of kundalini shakti... spiritual stalwarts Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! Both these serious seekers of God Almighty finally gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in their lifetime!

Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana initially started in search of God via path of bhakti yoga, path of religion... path of rituals! But finally both switched to path of jnana yoga (path of absolute wisdom) to reach God in their lifetime! Apart from practice of absolute celibacy... travelling path of jnana yoga as detailed in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism was necessitated to realize self... Reach God!

On spiritual path purpose of celibacy is absolute... reaching god in present life! Practice of absolute celibacy... Brahmacharya Vrata also got necessitated when human beings... ordinary mortals wanted absolute success in life! For increasing our mental powers to infinity... nth degree, practice of absolute celibacy, Brahmacharya Vrata was necessitated!


Normal human beings used their brain 1%. An enlightened one used his brain hundred percent. Practice of Brahmacharya Vrata... celibacy led to gradual opening of our brain! As our kundalini awakened slowly... our brain also activated in equivalent proportion! Full awakening of Kundalini Shakti meant our brain activating hundred percent.

Practice of absolute celibacy for 12 years in continuation finally resulted in full opening of kundalini shakti! Full activation of Kundalini Shakti resulted in opening of Sahasra Pushpa (thousand petaled Lotus) existing in our brain behind forehead! One immediately gained enlightenment... became knower of all... gained omniscience for all practical purposes!

Taking a vow of celibacy early in life is noble indeed! Not many people world over practiced absolute celibacy as detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! Mere abstaining from sexual relationship never meant much on spiritual path! For married people... a maximum of two sexual indulgences were permitted (one is desirable) as per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!


Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism contains truth but only truth! For a serious seeker of spirituality... for one who desired practising celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata... assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita was necessitated! In absence of teachings of Bhagavad Gita... one never reached God in lifetime!

True celibacy Brahmacharya Vrata can only be practiced by one who understood celibacy definition in totality as detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! Most human beings world over practiced celibacy without ever understanding true meaning and purport of absolute celibacy! The exact definition of celibacy is best detailed in Bhagavad Gita.

Unless we cut across shackles of karma... unless we eradicated flow of negative thoughts to our brain in totality... one never practiced absolute celibacy in reality! Why indulge in a sexual relationship... if our goal of life was reaching God in present life! By draining sexual energy... the most potent of all cosmic energies made available to mankind one reached nowhere!


Sexual energy is required to be transmuted... channeled to more positive... creative uses in life! It is only by transmuting sexual energy... human beings gained absolute success in life! For travellers of spiritual path... transmuting sexual energy meant full awakening of kundalini shakti... that directly led to God Almighty in present life!

For a married person taking vow of celibacy... practising sexual abstinence is very difficult in practice! Yet, for a serious seeker of spirituality exhibiting willpower demonstrated by Swami Vivekananda... nothing seemed impossible! If we have the will... we can always accomplish end goal of life!

When I started in search of God 13 years of age... I had no inkling what celibacy... Brahmacharya Vrata... kundalini awakening was all about! I could not even picturise meaning of God Almighty! 25 years of yoga meditation... I finally realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age! This is my last manifestation on mother earth.


Having gained absolute purity... nowhere to go further... moment I leave my mortal frame I shall attain salvation (moksha)! I have reached 8.4 millionth manifestation... last in cosmic life cycle! I distinctly remember practising absolute celibacy for a period of 14 years in continuation that directly led to full awakening of Kundalini Shakti within!

On path of pure celibacy... no shortcuts are permitted! Everything in cosmic system is absolute! Path to God Almighty is straight and clear! By assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita... any human being world over... belonging to any religion, faith or belief can gain enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in present life!

I have above 3000 essays on my various websites! Repeated reading of essays and assimilating teachings contained within... any human being world over could definitely reach stage of self realization... God realization! If Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana could do it in their lifetime... so could others!


Path of enlightenment was ordained by God Almighty to be covered in 1.1 million manifestations in human form! To travel the same in a limited time span of 70 to 80 years of present earthly domain almost seemed impossible! Yet, following path undertaken by Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa or Maharishi Ramana... one could always reach God in present life!
