Truth Behind Celibacy

It’s been more than a year ago when I started feeling some mystical phenomena’s inside my body. It’s been more than a year since I quit job to find if there was something more to my robotic life.

In my hope to find the meaning of life to some deeper extent, I started travelling. Since I was born in India and India is considered land of mystics, I went to India to understand something as mystical as life.

While travelling in India, I met so many monks and sadhus. I was surprised that those monks have quit worldly pleasures in search of something mystical.

It was even more surprising to me when I came to know that those monks were forcing to be celibate in hope to get enlightenment.

I already realized that celibacy could never be forced. I  realized that celibacy is not about having no sex but celibacy is all about overcoming desire of sex.

One who is filled with love is a celibate in my eyes. It does not matter if such person indulges in sexual activities or not.

One of the reasons I got spiritually awakened was since I never repressed any act in my life. Awakening is a pure result of freedom. No one in this universe could  become aware of spiritual awakening by repressing natural act like sex.

After unlocking my own inborn wisdom, I realized that one who has overcome the desire of sex is only capable to perform sex out of love. One who performs sex out of love is really a celibate in my eyes

Freedom

Celibacy is not about repression but freedom

I wanted to tell those monks that enlightenment is not a result of celibacy but celibacy could be a result of enlightenment. I wanted to explain them that the true definition of celibacy but I felt hopeless in unconditioning human mind.

Even though I never judge human since I love human imperfection so much, but somewhere in my heart I felt pity for those monks who were forcing to be celibate to attain something mystical in life.

I hope one-day humanity would understand the true meaning behind the teachings of enlightened people like Buddha.

I hope one-day humanity would understand that Buddha was pointing towards love but not misery. Surely one-day humanity would understand that Buddha was pointing towards freedom not repression.

Love,

Varun

    I totally agree I am working on my third year it is totally liberating for me no attachment an desire. Or the ignorance that considers with love and sex. It’s freeing, liberating, and frees up space to create and love others.
