Depends on your
goal of life! Celibacy is meant for the spiritual seeker... the
traveler of the path of spirituality... those who desire reaching
the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in present lifetime...
absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation
is necessitated if one desires gaining enlightenment in present
life. Celibacy is not about abstinence from sexual relationship
alone! The physical aspect of celibacy constitutes hardly 10% of
90% celibacy is practiced mentally. Celibacy truly means cleansing
of the thought process of all negative thoughts for always and ever.
The moment flow of negative thoughts to the brain altogether stops
permanently... one reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi!
One can have
a boyfriend or a girlfriend while traveling the path of celibacy...
practicing celibacy... remaining a celibate! This amounts to practicing
highest limits of self-control... which in the present materialistic
world... the sensual surroundings is difficult... but not impossible!
practicing self-control in totality... one can always remain a virgin
until marriage! Kissing does not matter while practicing celibacy.
But kissing leads to sensual indulgences that is beyond the control
of individuals... better to avoid kissing as a celibate!
is not our goal of life we must never indulge in practicing celibacy
unless we really want to gain success in life. Most successful people
while practicing celibacy transmute their sexual energies to more
creative channels... the goal of their choice!
Only by transmuting
sexual energies to a desired goal of life... one gains absolute
success in life... never otherwise! While remaining celibate...
a maximum of two sexual indulgences per month are permitted... however
one is desirable! Practicing celibacy is a shortcut to success!
