“This topic is something which is very much misunderstood. Usually Brahmacharya is taken to mean celibacy, not getting married, to become a Brahmachari (as the word comes from there). All our saints and sages were householders. Brahmacharis were more of a sect, which was for the training of our mind. And they were living for a purpose, and so that marriage would not be a distraction for them, they had a different path.

But I remember when I was learning my classical singing, a boy who was 30 or 32 years old used to come there and the teacher said that he should marry now and not remain a Brahmachari. And the boy laughingly said ‘I am not a Brahmachari. I am Avivahit (unmarried) but not a Brahmachari.’ Marrying or not marrying is not the issue. The issue is the state of mind. And if a person is living a very selfish life – me, mine, my pleasure, my money, my comforts, etc, he is going to get into an imbalanced state because somewhere this would make him so selfish that he can’t tolerate little things in life, can’t adjust, gets irritated, becomes such a perfectionist that he demands from others the same perfectionism.

Check this out on Chirbit Q. What is the difference between bachelorhood and Brahmacharya? Dr. J: See, bachelorhood is an English word. You are a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science; while this Brahmacharya talks of something higher, a higher state of consciousness. Smt. H: The two words are very different, Dr. Jayadeva explained it very nicely. Brahmacharya is a very superior word. ‘Brahman’ the word itself means a man who is always with a higher consciousness, whose thoughts move with Isvara (God), whose mind is always pure and he does not indulge in anything, there is no question of pleasure seeking. He is always happy and blissful with his purity of thoughts.   Q. Can a person achieve self-realization without marriage? Is he progressive in this kind of thinking?
