A true Brahmacharin in thought, word and deed has wonderful thought-power.
He can move the world.
If you develop strict celibacy, Vichara-Sakti (power of enquiry) and Dharana-Sakti (power of grasping and holding the Truth) will develop.
If a man persistently refuses to yield to his lower nature and remains as a strict celibate, the seminal energy is deflected upwards to the brain and is stored up as Ojas-Sakti (spiritual power).
Thereby, the power of the intellect is intensified to a remarkable degree.
The strict celibate has keen and acute memory even in old age.
The celibate who has achieved the transmutation of the seminal energy will find that sexual desires no longer trouble him.
Such celibate is known as Urdhvaretas.
Hanuman, Bhishma, Lakshmana, Swami Dayananda and Swami Vivekananda were Urdhvareto-Yogins.
