12. What is Brahmacharya?
Brahmacharya has got two meanings.
The real meaning is that Charya or that conduct of life which ultimately leads you to Brahma Jnana (knowledge of Brahman) or Brahma-Sakshatkara.
That is Brahmacharya.
The pattern of living or the way of living and acting will bestow upon you Brahma Jnana, Brahma-Sakshatkara.
Secondly Brahmacharya means a life of self-control, control of all the senses, all impure desires, control of anger and passion.
It means self control.
This is Brahmacharya.
It means not merely remaining unmarried.
That is not the proper definition.
It means the first stage of life that is youth.
