Masturbation is a sexual obsessiveness that is satisfied artificially(i.e solo sex). In limit it is not harmful but in excess it causes many health issues like hair fall, fatigue, less concentration power, affect androgen receptors, weakens immune system etc.
Its natural that whenever we do wrong things, we have a feeling of guilt and also if we don’t do anything for that guilt, every time we repeat that thing the guilt effect reduces.There is no man on this planet who didn’t feel that guilt when he started masturbating.

Wasting semen has no sense in it and why, you’ll get to know in this article.

What makes Seminal fluid so much important?

Seminal fluid also known as semen,contains numerous essential vitamins and minerals including Calcium, Vitamin C, Citric acid, Lactic acid, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Vitamin B12, Zinc, free amino acids, fructose, and protein-splitting enzymes.

Semen is the quintessence of food or blood. According to modern medical science one drop of semen is manufactured out of 40 drops of blood. According to Ayurveda, it is elaborated out of 80 drops of blood. Just as sugar is all-pervading in the sugar cane, butter in milk, so also, semen is pervading the whole body.

  • Have you ever wonder why after ejaculation people get tired and sleepy?
  • Why the word celibacy(brahmacharya) came into existence?
  • How Swami Vivekananda, Nikola Tesla and many great people got that eidetic memory(Photographic memory)?
  • What happen if a person does not ejaculate? and why seminal fluid has so much importance?
    There are so many questions and today you’re at right place.

It takes about a month to form seminal fluid from scratch and according to scientists about 32kgs of food is converted into 800gms of blood and that blood is converted into 20gms of seminal fluid. So yes, a lot of energy is utilised to form a very small amount of it.
So its obvious people get tired after ejaculation as such a amount of energy is lost and also the release of prolactin(a hormone) makes you sleepy.

When a person preserves semen and don’t waste it, after a period of time it goes back to the blood and move upwards towards brain to nourish it and sharpen the intellect.
In ancient times in Indian culture children were sent to gurukul at the age of 13 and study their until they reach 25.

In Gurukul, they had to follow five precepts:
1. No intoxication(No alcohol,no smoking,no non-veg)
2. Non-violence through actions thoughts and words
3. No mental and physical stealing
4. No lying
5. Celibacy(brahmacharya).
These methods are also practiced in yoga as well as in intense meditation practice.
At very young age children did follow brahmcharya and get a lot of benefits in every aspects which also help them in their old age while the masturbaters are just putting their old age at risk, the power they need in their old age is just spilled out for momentarily pleasure.


Today, its a modern trait to fulfil all desires anyhow but the thing is people must make a boundary to their desires and give importance to intellect and their health rather than temporary pleasures or some cheap thrills.
Preserving semen has unlimited mental and physical benefits, today,  in the world full of diseases and undisciplined life, it is much important to have basic knowledge about what people waste for momentarily pleasure.
Many great personalities did follow semen retention like Steve Jobs, Muhammad Ali, Swami Vivekananda, Nikola Tesla and the counting will never end.

According to scientists preserving semen has following benefits:

On Hormonal Level:

Increase in testosterone levels:

A study by pubmed.gov is that by abstaining only 7 days, testosterone level rises up by 45.7%.
Abstaining is like a testosterone booster, why you need supplements when you have everything built-in.
Testosterone helps a man to make Better libido, less fat and more muscle, good stamina and strength, etc.

Increase in brain androgen receptors [ARs] :

Testosterone does nothing for you if you don’t have androgen receptors (ARs). ARs are what allow your body to use testosterone, such as to develop a deep voice and other manly traits. Without ARs, testosterone is useless. Porn / frequent masturbation hasn’t been proven, at least in the short term, to really affect testosterone levels, however, overly active sexual activity/satiety (such as porn with frequent masturbation) has been proven, to significantly reduce the amount of androgen receptors in the body. It takes at least 15 days of abstinence to reverse these brain changes.

Balances  prolactin hormone:

Its Imbalance usually causes unexplained headaches, visual impairment reduce sex drive abnormal lack of body and facial hairs

Mental

  • more confidence and self-control
  • less anxiety and depression
  • increased motivation
  • better memory, concentration, and overall cognitive function

Physical

  • greater vitality
  • increased muscle growth
  • thicker hair
  • deeper voice
  • improved sperm quality and motility

Spiritual

  • deeper relationships
  • stronger life force
  • better overall happiness

Now lets see the views of great Swami Vivekananda over semen preservation:

Swami Vivekananda once said that “Never once in my life did I allow myself to have even one sexual thought. I trained my mind, my thinking, and the powers that man usually uses along that line I put into a higher channel, and it developed a force so strong that nothing could resist it.”
In his Raja Yoga, the Swami explains that through brahmacharya sex energy is converted into a higher form of psychic energy called ‘ojas.’(Ojas, literally meaning the ‘illuminating’ or ‘bright’ is the highest form of energy in the human body. In the spiritual aspirant who constantly practices continence and purity, other forms of energy are transmuted into ojas and stored in the brain, expressing as spiritual and intellectual power). He says, “The yogis say that part of the human energy which is expressed as sex energy, in sexual thought, when checked and controlled easily becomes changed into ojas, and as the muladhara (lowest of the six centers of consciousness) guides these, the yogi pays particular attention to that centre. He tries to take up all his sexual energy and convert it into ojas.
It is only the chaste man or woman who can make the ojas rise and store it in the brain; that is why chastity has always been considered the highest virtue. A man feels that if he is unchaste, spirituality goes away, he loses mental vigour and moral stamina. That is why in all the religious orders in the world which have produced spiritual giants you always find absolute chastity insisted upon.

To preserve semen there are methods that can be followed:

1.  NoFap : the avoidance of porn and masturbation. Orgasm and ejaculation are allowed with a partner, but solo sex is avoided.
Orgasm control, also referred to as edging, peaking, or surfing. Orgasm and ejaculation are delayed, but eventually allowed at the end of the sexual session.
2.  Semen Retention : Semen retention is the practice of avoiding ejaculation. You can do this by abstaining from sexual activity altogether, of course. Or you can learn how to orgasm without ejaculating.There are methods like edging etc.
3. Brahmacharya : Brahmacharya is absolute freedom from sexual thoughts and desires. It is the vow of celibacy. It is control of all the senses in thought, word and deed.

There are lots of benefits of preserving semen worth avoiding ejaculation. Its upto you what you want in your life, always chasing temporary pleasure or give it a break and work for spirituality(permanent pleasure).
Try this out for months, if you feel positive changes than follow it otherwise drop it, there is no harm in trying something good.
The first step to win a 100m race is to take that first step.Try to be supreme rather than an ordinary person like the rest 98% of population.

When we step out to do something good, nature will try to break\stop us, its like a test from nature side that, will you be able to stand and continue the practice or will you let your guard down.This test decides whether you’ll stand out of the crowd and do something big or become a part of crowd and die as an ordinary human.

Thank you for your precious time and try to implement things in your life, if you have any query comment it down I’ll try to reach you as soon as possible
