MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 28.6.1.
Chapter 28 : Evil Vrittis And Their Eradication - 6.1
6. Benefits Of Brahmacharya-1.
Mind, Prana, Virya (seminal energy) are three links of one chain.
They are three pillars of the edifice of Jivatman.
Destroy one pillar-either mind, Prana or Virya and the whole building will fall to pieces.
If you can observe Akhanda Brahmacharya for a period of 12 years, you will enter into Nirvikalpa Samadhi spontaneously without any effort.
The mind will be controlled by itself.
Seminal energy is a potent Sakti.
Semen is Brahman itself.
A Brahmacharin who has practised unbroken celibacy for full twelve years will reach to Nirvikalpa state the moment he hears the Mahavakya "Tat Tvam Asi" (That thou art).
