    Amazing article.Especially conclusion is really wonderful that:
    Isn’t it time that all institutions that support celibacy, both in the eastern world and western world, look beyond sectarian boundaries for ideas to adopt—and work together to keep the celibacy culture alive?

    idle mind is davil’s workshop. Yes, we need to engage the senses in Lord’s service, otherwise it will surely go hay wire.

    Nice article by Mr.Satyanand Das, it beautifully brings with examples from past and presentout, what is required if celibacy is to be practiced. If society does not understand this it will create unnecessary disturbance by having forced celibates.

    ‘While propounding celibacy, I strongly feel, we also have to espouse a lifestyle that goes with it.’ Similarly when we practice spirituality in general we should follow a lifestyle that allows our practices to flourish. This point is very important for every spiritual practitioner.

    Very inspiring article: Clearly telling DOS and DON’Ts for a devotee.

    As per my understanding:

    Dos: Get up early and meditate. Engage yourself 100% in devotional service. Obey Spiritual master.

    Don’ts: idle mind is devil’s workshop. Idle time means big danger, big problem. Association of worldly things like TV can dilute our determination.

    Indeed celibacy is not easy. It takes a lot of self control and help from seniors to reach that stage. Moreover, if the mind is not engaged fully in spiritual activities, the mind is bound to wander and lust after material desires. This will never work as celibacy, once chosen should be a joy instead of being a torturous path. The westerners can definitely learn from the ancient wisdom of the vedic scriptures and our great acharyas as to how to live a life of celibacy joyfully and enthusiastically.

    The Vedic scriptures teaches the right path to celibacy. Forced celibacy is of no use as the mind is always hankering for the very things that have to be given up. It is a joy to watch the monks at Radhagopinath mandir taking their celibate vows so joyfully!

    Any sane man would agree to the fact that it pays in one’ higher endeavours/enquiries of life to preserve one’ vitality and not spend it on frivolous sensual escapades.
