Courses in Celibacy - 10 Mar 10

Swami Ji

Sometimes it is funny for me how people try to live in old beliefs and times which just don’t fit into modern life situations. Some people try to adapt those beliefs or try to change and modify it to fit to the mind of modern people. Like this I have heard of a 6 months course in India for becoming Brahmachari. Isn’t that funny to hear? Last week I wrote about how the real meaning, the being one with the united soul, and how it is nowadays just used for a person living in celibate. If Brahmacharya is celibacy, what exactly do they teach in a course of Brahmacharya? 

This I got to know from a woman who told me she was in India for this course. Funnily enough I met another woman later who had a baby from the course leader himself, a Guru who calls himself celibate. 

And one more word which I often hear people say to a celibate person is ‘Bal Brahmachari’. Bal means child so it refers to a person who is celibate from birth until today and celibate for these people means no sexual feelings. How can you say this? I wrote about this the other day and again I say that sexual feelings are just natural and this is how children also have them, they are just there. But children’s feelings are innocent. When an adult person raises his sexual feelings, he has an object in his mind. He is aroused by one person. But children have sexual feelings just without any aim. Is the title Bal Brahmachari now something greater title than just Brahmachari? Actually I feel that it will be more difficult for those who have already enjoyed, shouldn’t they be the better Brahmacharis?

I am practicing celibacy and I don't think you can understand what it's all about until you do it. Give it a try, if you've got the balls.

@Dejay: I think you have difficulties to find a woman for yourself that's why you got the idea to practice celibacy. Ha ha ha ha. Otherwise why would anybody like to practice this stupid unnatural practice? I have got the balls and know how to keep them happy.

Celibacy... There is almost an endless amount of shame and pain attached to sex. Trying to take vows of celibacy, to me, seem like after affects of that. Sex has become an over-complicated power struggle. People try to regulate it and tell you how to feel about it. There are very loud forces telling you sex is shameful and bad, but there are also loud forces telling you to almost pimp yourself out so you don't get lost in the social shuffle. Too many forces. It is a shame, I think it is at least. Many people worry about sexual things for a good portion of their lives. I think celibacy pledges are people running from the confusion and the pressure.
