    How to establish sexual continence

    Finally brahmacharya has to become part of human consciousness. The best way to be established in brahmacharya and to be divine is to have the attitude of passionlessness, reverence and worshipfulness. There has to be mastery of the act of passion, for without this brahmacharya is self deception. There is no doubt that if one can observe brahmacharya totally, not merely refraining from sex, but also redeeming oneself from sensual fantasies and channelling the mind towards creativity, the speed of progress

    will be very fast. What a non-celibate achieves in six years' time, a celibate can achieve in one year.

    Brahmacharya includes and incorporates in itself proper observation and expression in the world of the senses, control and channelling of all sensory and sensual indulgences or bhogas (experiences and cravings of pleasure). Certain guidelines have been given in the spiritual tradition for establishing brahmacharya and these are enumerated below.

    -

    1. Control your diet. A high protein diet stimulates the sexual hormones.

    -

    2. Organize your day. Make a timetable of your daily routine ..

    -

    3. Redeem yourself from sexual fantasies, lust and desire.

    -

    4. Dissociate yourself from sexual acts and amorous advances.

    -

    5. Avoid sexual contact, sexual conversations, sexual pleasantries, sexual looks, sexual mannerisms, sexual novels, sexual films, sexual music, etc. Avoid toying with

    yourself and with others. Be natural and just forget about it.

    -

    6. Make certain disciplines for yourself and follow them quietly.

    -

    7. Change your soft bed. Use a proper, firm bed.

    -

    8. Avoid constipation.

    -

    9. Practise asana, pranayama, mudra and bandha to rechannel dissipated energies.

    Necessity of work

    During the process of sannyasa training, sexual energy must be dealt with almost constantly. It cannot be denied ·expression without impairing the natural life processes,

    depleting vitality and leading to depression . and mental problems. Medical science has also taught this. However, this same energy which is expressed on the mundane level

    as sexual interaction can be expressed positively and creatively in other ways. When the evolutionary energy is denied expression in the sexual act, it is deflected back into the unconscious (mooladhara chakra). From there it must be redirected through the higher chakras as work, creativity and spiritual activities.

    -

    In the process of sannyasa training, this energy is spent every day in hard work and creative activity which demands total effort and awareness, utilizing every faculty and capacity of the mind. By constant practice, sannyasins learn to work with an intensity which rechannels this energy completely. When this complete rechannelling occurs, no surplus energy remains to be consumed in sexual life or in neurosis. That is why the sannyasin remains totally relaxed even in the midst of dynamic activity. The energy is being consumed in the fire of higher awareness.

    -

    If the sannyasin does not learn to work in this way every day as a matter of routine, the energy finds immediate expression in erotic play, aggression or inner tension. This is what happens in many monasteries where intense karma yoga is not practised and the young initiates spend all their time devoted to studies and prayer. In order to successfully redirect these powerful impulses for greater experience and purpose, the sannyasin has to eat less, sleep less and be totally occupied in work for many years.

    -

    Once the readjustment of energy has been made, the sannyasin becomes firmly established in spiritual life, disciplined and steady in mind and emotions. Then he is no

    longer compelled to maintain such an intense work schedule. He can sit quietly or work hard all day without any difference, for he is no longer troubled by · mental and emotional inconsistencies. He has learned to conduct the life force and lets it flow productively into the creative, mental and spiritual planes.

    -

    When the passage of energy is established, the process becomes effortless. Kundalini energy, which operates on the mundane level as sexual activity in ordinary men and

    women, has been transmuted to operate on the spiritual level. Thus the sannyasin is lifted into a transcendental experience of regenerative bliss, rather than remaining in a

    diminishing pool of degenerating pleasure. Such sannyasins are jewels amongst humanity. They are able to bestow light, courage, peace and bliss wherever they go. They are the beacons of mankind, living examples of the higher possibilities open to us all.

    I don't recommend it. You need to know the many ways of replenishing chi and jing so you replenish what you burn up in the moments of the act. You also need a seriously good foundation of energy so that the extreme amounts of energy that you circulate, burn and brings newly in the system - the extreme circulation won't burn you out. The only way is to have a massive store yourself so then it acts like a mechanism that has been turned on.

    Also I don't think anyone in antiquity has done karreza alone but was doing tantra which is intentfull karezza where serious work is done in spirit using powerful technique aka you need a fondation in spirit to be able to use any such technique during sex because of the natural disturbance in the consciousness by the sex act itself... in other words the vast majority of 1 day or one week strikes on this forum are not suited for this practice simply because they do not have thickness into their own consciouness, there is nothing to circulate for them, just as there is no muscle to be build for a hungry, starving man.

    Such individuals would also be fuked hormonally by the constant feeding of such input into both their minds and bodies.

    Really, doesn't take a genius to figure out, if you can't go hardmode for a few years out of discipline and good conscience then what business do you have to do practices like karezza or tantra whatever the purpose?

    Their purpose is simply edging, just making justifications.

    You could say that for sure! But technically it is different. But yes, unless you've got the development you are edging...Even if you have sex you wont reduce anything without proper development and actual change in yourself. Look at accounts of people on nofap doing escorts or saying they are horny after sex. Or their girlfriend left them and they fapped because they were remembering sex with their girlfriend.

    SEX is a FIRE. You walk on fire you feed the fire, it's simple.

    The whole purposes of tantra ... consider that when you're aroused in you can just sit in that energy right? It's an exercise here on nofap forums people post often about. Just sit in that energy and feel the expansion. Its almost like a different space which now instaead of reacting you just sit in it.

    That can be a viable space to bring up memories or simply be more energised. Of course it's ridiculously problematic and counter productive to arouse yourself to raise up some energy on a lazy day....but once aroused you got this synergetics/expansive space surrounding your body automatically. Normally it's in thebackground and people are like "I'm super horny, I cannot take my mind off it"

    You can make that horny space conscious too.

    Anyway, that is not real tantra^^ but it can give a taste of it. YOu need proper mental control including mental concentration way beyond anything that normal people who never meditate or merely do 10-15minutes never expeirence; to make the practice work. You also need to be healthy and whatnot.


    Doing Karreza/edging is just as counter productive and dangerous as being hardmode celibate forcefully and also living a sedentary lifestyle where you sit or lay down all day and never do exercise of any kind, simply because celibacy makes you 'lazy' or 'antisocial' or 'depressed' or 'tired' or 'repressed', etc...

    You've got to GET HEALTHY. Celibacy is a building of heat. Now use that heat to warm up your physiology (body+mind) by letting the gas flow in the pipes around your house, don't let it stagnate and start a fire at any one point inside your house because then it will start burning the house down.

    Karezza is nothing to do with edging.Karezza is to do with bonding with your partner.

    It's like if you watch your breath you will never in 10 million khalpas of aeons reach enlightement as an ordinary person. You need proper development to be able to meditate, otherwise you Just Sit there...

    Similarly with the bonding, normal people cannot bond to facilitate exponential growth.

    I don't agree about either. I reach enlightenment several times a day and lose it as fast.
    But I respect your beliefs and wish you well in your search for 'exponential growth'.

    With karezza the semen separates from the blood, then finds a way out

    Well you can have a partner, and you can try to create a particular yogic heat that is in the middle of the chest, I forgot the name in tamil.

    But you can do the same with a deity as long as you are devotional enough

    If the focus is sexual, trouble will arise later, anything of animal nature brings trouble later, karezza might be for people starting out, maybe, but there are always shortcuts, but you can try to focus on loving your partner/feeling compassion with great intensity, then the heat will be felt and will start spreading thoughout the body, that actually eradicates lust and prepares the body/mind etc for the next stage in evolution.
