Reply To: Semen Retention and Brahmacharya


Many Hindu yogis and Village people put emphasis on semen retention, claiming that it gives some unusual “power”, also keeps the body strong,etc. What did the Buddha say about it?

One main reason I think that yogis believe that is that they suppress sexual thoughts (along with other sensual cravings without knowing) and then they attain Anariya Jhana, thinking that it’s because they preserved their semen.


Nobody attains path and fruits without right view, good householder.

And merely practices do nor even lead to heavens.

Even Brahmachariy goes deed.

View it in this regard, Atma thinks Nyom Lal will possible change his mind and dedicate it much worth.
