    Hindu Teaching

    Abstinence

    Editors' note: Brahmacharya, or celibacy, is a requirement for the sannyasi (ascetic) who, to keep his mind fixed on the great ideal, retires into solitude, abandoning sense pleasures and the society of worldly men. In its wider sense, a man of action, a householder such as Arjuna, practises bramacharya by abstinence from negativities, by nonattachment to objects of desire, the senses, to family and all other ties, trying to remember God constantly.
