Freedom from sexual impulses leading
to celibacy in thoughts, speech and action.
The Gnani Purush shows the modern day world
meaningful way of attaining celibacy
and the resultant benefits of the state
with unprecedented clarity.
The Akram Vignani, Pujya Shri A.M. Patel opened up new
avenues for those seeking a correct approach to
the eternal puzzle faced by those striving for
celibacy in the path of attaining a higher order of
bliss and spirituality. These satsangs are now available in the form
of a major work of 2 volumes called
Samaj Thi Prapt
( Celibacy through Knowledge and Right

These volumes were published in 1997 by
Dada Bhagwan Foundation ( Madras ) in Gujarati
and are available by

Vast amount of new information is now
available. What follows is merely excerpts from the
Sexuality from the perspective of the Self
Realised, The Gnani.
Sexual impulse...Vishaya...impedes the bliss of the
Self. It makes a human being plunge into the garbage
heap of the five senses with senseless fervour.
Human birth has the potential for the realization of the
bliss of true freedom but alas, out of sheer
ignorance of this potential, one gets stuck in ever increasing pile of garbage
of sexuality and its consequences of bondage life after life. Even animals do
not prefer such garbage.
Lord Mahavir proclaimed and defined the
Fifth Mahavrat ...great
vow of brahmacharya for
human beings of this era because these beings
have brought forth with them heavy burdens of sexual cause and effects, and to
show them the way to true freedom...moksha he defined the fifth vow of
of thoughts, speech and
vikruti...non self, not
necessary for the bliss of the Self.
It is simply a toy of the mind
After the unbearable heat of a day why is it that
the cattle soak in the dirty muddy waters ? The deep desire
coolness from heat makes them forget the stench
of the dirty muddy water. Similarly modern day humans who
suffer from the constant struggles and
tensions of daily life at work and at at home, seek a diversion from the fire of
such tensions and a release through sex and forget its consequences over and
over again !
After terminating the enjoyment of a sexual act,
even the strongest of man becomes a temporary weakling and
appears near dead ! What did he gain from it
poison. Once identified as a poison would anyone touch it ?
If there is anything that needs to be feared in
this world, it is this poison of Vishaya. It is worse than all
snakes and fearful animals of this world. And yet
the ignorant of this world consider it the potion of supreme
pleasure ! Where is the end of ignorance and its

I had only wanted a wife ! " Did you not know that she was going

This is called bebhaanpanu...ignorance of the self. Not an iota of

sex !! And thereafter his life is like the ox that goes round and round
labouring at the grain mill !
No one has taught him or shown him what is
correct and right. Even as a child he or she hears from the

pleasure of sex
After attaining the bliss of the Self , the
pleasures of sex become tasteless and redundant, just as a
cup of tea looses its sweetness after having had
a sweet dessert. The higher the order of bliss the less

sexual pleasures. The enjoyment of food is not
