The eternal celibacy
|The journey starts here|
It’s been a while since I have interacted with you my friends. During this period of dormancy I got multiple mails regarding “Why the hell I have stopped writing?” and I have nothing to say except apologizing for my “mistake”. But I am really grateful to all of you who are interested in reading what I call- “The thought syndrome”.
During this period I was trying to self introspect as well as was trying to explore this world to get something for you all. It was this time only when I went through a novel written by all so famous Amish-‘The secret of Nagas’, a book one should read, a pure pleasure of “contemporary” mythology.
Now I knew that only this topic can quench my thirst of writing, a topic which is so exhilarating and yet too solemn- ‘THE ETERNAL CELIBACY’, a path to complete enlightenment, a path that leads us to God.
Celibacy is a period of life that a man or woman enjoys with a tag on their forehead –“STATUS-UNMARRIED” and its path to soul enlightenment, a complete salvation. Some people do it to wash away their sins and some just do it...reason even I don’t know...duh.
A lover usually tells his beloved- “Sweet heart, it will be you or no body”, confirming that he loves her very much and will never be with someone else, and his friends will consider him maniac...”I mean c’mon man one girl...seriously? No shit”. But, love is eternal just like the stars of passion fluttering in the sky of ecstasy; as one lover turned poet will comment.
But celibacy is quite a task or we can say a vow to accomplish...staying unmarried and renouncing from the worldly physical pleasure is obviously a BIGGG task both for a man and a woman (those who think that only men seek physical intimacy...think again). According to Indian mythology, the legend had it that Lord Vishwamitra vowed for the eternal celibacy but before that he already had his part of physical satisfaction. Legend also says that Menka, the GODDESS of beauty and feminine power was able to break his vow through her remarkable seductive moves.

This fact pulls me to point that if a saint of Vishwamitra stature could summon to Menka’s eroticism then what the hell we think about ourselves. I mean c’mon...we can’t even stop our eyes’ uncontrollable gaze to a poster of a an innocent woman displaying her generous cleavage; people say it’s an advertisement to sell “Winter inner" and not their blissful breast (though I still can’t get that why she don’t catch cold running on snow bare footed with just a sling of body fit inner on her beautifully carved upper body, having a perfect amount of fat on the perfect parts). :P
Sorry for digressing...so where were we...oh yes...eternal celibacy. I will just say before you incinerate your brain for a path to enlightenment through celibacy, think again as it’s a hell of complex procedure then you think.
You are not amused...have a look at this then...I think you will change your mind.
I went through internet some days before and found something interesting...have a look...
“A vow of celibacy is necessitated for traveler of spiritual path... never otherwise! Those who do not pursue a spiritual goal of life need not take a vow of celibacy! The practice of celibacy demands highest level of perfection that can ever be achieved by human beings! Controlling sensuality is very difficult to practice yet, not impossible!
One must never indulge in a vow of celibacy just as rhetoric... for the sake of it! For travelling spiritual path... a vow of celibacy is necessitated for a continuous period of 12 years! Not a single lapse in the entire cycle of 12 years is permitted. A single lapse in vow of celibacy... we need repeating the whole process of 12 years again!
For full awakening of kundalini energy... for activating kundalini Shakti in totality... a practice of absolute celibacy for a period of 12 years in continuation is an absolute must! It is only by full awakening of kundalini Shakti human beings finally reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!
Every single man god like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed and (in the last about 150 years) Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana... all took a vow of celibacy in the earlier stages of life! By transmuting stored sexual energy and redirecting it towards the only goal of life is what absolute celibacy is all about!

Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
Controlling sensuality in a world full of beautiful ladies is very difficult to practice yet, not impossible! For an ardent practitioner of spirituality nothing is impossible!
By harnessing this intangible energy... human beings could reach rather cross any barrier of mundane life finally reaching domain of God Almighty in one’s lifetime! The essence of life is... whatever we desire to do we have to accomplish it in present lifespan of 70 to 80 years! As we do not know what we shall be in next manifestation... we have to make all our attempts now... In present life!
We just cannot leave things to chance! In the domain of God there never are free lunches. All is governed by inscrutable laws of karma... as we sow so shall we reap nothing less or more! It is our karma alone that decides our journey of life. Destiny is not manifested by grace of God Almighty. Human beings manifested destiny by practicing absolute celibacy in real life!
Sage Vishwamitra... a highly accomplished saint 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 celibacy all over again! Sage Vishwamitra was a contemporary of Sage Vashistha. He always thought that he was way ahead of Sage Vashistha.
Mysterious are ways of God Almighty! It was God Almighty who created all the drama resulting in Sage Vishwamitra losing his face in society! Sage Vishwamitra had a lot of anger that he found unable to contain. To teach him a lesson... to restrain Sage Vishwamitra from baring his anger in public... the lesson of celibacy was called for!
Married people who indulged in a vow of celibacy have to contain sexual indulgences to a maximum of two per month (one is desirable)! On the path of pure celibacy... one or two indulgences per month are permitted... never more! I again repeat... a single lapse... and everything needs to be repeated again!
|The will of iron:|
Such a strict regimen on path of pure celibacy is necessitated as God Almighty does not desire every Jack and Jill reaching stage of enlightenment! Enlightenment is not that easily gained. In the last about 150 years' world over only two persons succeeded in reaching stage of enlightenment... Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! “
