Kaivalya Jnani :
Sexual abstinence and celibacy is not a precept that could be taught time and again! Sexual abstinence... practice of absolute celibacy is inherent trait of character that needs practising by individual self! Sexual abstinence and practice of absolute celibacy was necessitated for traveler of spiritual path... never an ordinary mortal... a commoner!

Transmuting sexual energy to its logical end human beings finally gained absolute success in life!

Before practice of sexual abstinence... celibacy we needed having an absolute goal in life! In absence of a goal in life... life is like a rudderless boat going round and round in the ocean! God Almighty provided every man and woman a quota of this most potent cosmic energy month after month... year after year!

By transmuting sexual energy towards the ultimate goal of life... human beings finally gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) on spiritual path! For travellers of material world... practice of sexual abstinence... celibacy announced one gaining absolute success in life! Whatever our goal; practice of sexual abstinence... celibacy meant manifestation of success in life!

Sexual abstinence constituted hardly 10% of celibacy... 90% celibacy being practiced mentally! Physical aspect of celibacy is termed sexual abstinence! Eradicating flow of negative thoughts to our brain in totality is what mental celibacy is all about! For reaching stage of self realization, God realization... enlightenment... practising absolute celibacy was necessitated!


Sexual abstinence... physical aspect of celibacy is best practiced following celibacy mantra! Treating all woman folk world over as our mother, sister or daughter... human beings finally manifested destiny! On path of pure spirituality... on path of sexual abstinence... there is never a fourth relationship!

In a world full of sensual environment... practising sexual abstinence was difficult yet, not impossible! Practising mental celibacy was even more difficult! Every second thousands of thoughts flowed to our brain incessantly! Stopping flow of all negative thoughts to our brain in totality was what absolute celibacy was all about!

Sexual abstinence can also be practiced while married or in a relationship! Practising sexual abstinence... celibacy meant one invoking flow of positive thoughts every second of life! Sexual abstinence... celibacy must be practiced while married if we desired reaching a fixed goal of life or when our goal of life was reaching God Almighty in present life!

For practising sexual abstinence... celibacy while married... a maximum of two sexual indulgences per month are permitted (one is preferable) as detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! For reaching stage enlightened (termed kaivalya in Hinduism)... practice of absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation was necessitated!


Many people in West thought otherwise! Full awakening of kundalini can never be exercised by indulgence in sex. For full awakening of kundalini shakti... the coiled Serpentine energy lying dormant in base of spine... practice of sexual abstinence... celibacy for a period of 12 years in continuation was necessitated! There is absolutely no shortcut on path of pure celibacy!

Sage Vishwamitra... a highly accomplished sage of his era on sighting a maiden woman taking bath in forlorn circumstances in deep dense jungles (forests) fell from grace. He had to repeat the practice of absolute celibacy all over again!

Acharya Rajneesh (née Osho) in later stages of his life mixed free sex with yoga! His experiment of indulging in a sexual relationship while pursuing spiritual path was a dismal failure... so much so that he was unceremoniously turned out of United states of America! No country in the world was willing to take him... finally his motherland India came to his rescue!


Acharya Rajneesh died brokenhearted!

Sexual abstinence... celibacy must be practiced with caution! Absolute practice of celibacy finally leads to full awakening of Kundalini Shakti. The moment our kundalini awakened fully... Sahasra Pushpa (thousand petaled Lotus) existing in our brain behind forehead opened fully... one immediately gained enlightenment... became knower of all!

Practice of absolute celibacy... path of kundalini awakening is a one-way path! Similar as a bud having become a flower cannot become a bud again... an enlightened one after gaining enlightenment cannot revert to worldly duties again! For an enlightened one... the whole world becomes one family!


Noble are those who practiced sexual abstinence and celibacy in present life!
