Trends of our day- Body Piercing and Tattoos This is a difficult subject to write on, and I have pondered this for a number of years.
Sense impulses and biological urges are common to animal and man alike. Sex is one of the prominent, most important and absolutely essential aspects of human, animal as well as plant life. While this aspect of life is regulated by nature in plants and by instinct in animals, in man it is left to his common-sense, intelligence and his developed reason to control and regulate the same.
The vast and ancient scriptures of the world offer human society specific rules and regulations in this respect. But alas, in the present-day world, and more particularly among the educated class, in all walks of society and in all age groups, norms of conduct laid down by the scriptures are flouted with so much impunity that we see, all around us, the number of physical, mental and moral wrecks increasing every day.
Swami Sivananda came on the Indian scene, in the early thirties, to blast this ignorance of the people by offering the hoary wisdom of the ancients through the media of his simple English writings. It is well known that spiritual treatises apart, the great Master, whose love for mankind knew no bounds, wrote a number of books concerning health, hygiene and medicine.
One such book was "Practice of Brahmacharya" which dealt mostly with the subject of celibacy, and where celibacy was not possible, a regulated sex life. This book has been popular with the public. This has been done as an act of loving service to modern youth who are often left groping in the dark by an irresponsible society.
These days we often hear about "juvenile delinquency," but this juvenile delinquency itself is the result of adult irresponsibility.
The youth of the world craves for guidance which is often not forthcoming from the parents, teachers or society. It is hoped that this book of holy Master Swami Sivananda will fill the above-mentioned lacuna and offer the youth of the world the knowledge and guidance which they so richly deserve in a vital area which affects their physical, mental, ethical and spiritual well-being.
We pray that the blessings of the holy Master may pour on all those who may chance to go through the following pages and open up a new chapter in their lives. May all be healthy, happy and spiritually blessed.
Loka Samastha Sukhino Bhavantu! Give light and purity.
Let me get established in physical and mental Brahmacharya. Let me be pure in thoughts, word and deed. Give me strength to control my Indriyas senses and observe the Brahmacharya Vrata.
Protect me from all sorts of temptations of this world. Let all my Indriyas be ever engaged in Thy sweet service. Wipe out the sexual Samskaras impressions and Vasanas subtle desires. Annihilate lust from my mind. Make me a true Brahmachari, Sadachari and Oordhvareta Yogi. Let me be chaste in my look.
Let me always walk in the path of righteousness. Forgive all my Aparadhas offenses. Dedicated to the Youth of the World 1.
