Power of veerya can give life to lifeless
Ignorant becomes knowledgeable
Knowledgeable becomes divine
Darkness becomes light
Unknown becomes Arjuna
Don’t let the fire of passion burn it away
Preserve it at any cost.
Vedic tradition holds that: “Veeryanashahi mrutyu, Brahmacharyahee Jeevan” “The vital energy, the Veerya that supports your life, which is the Prana of Pranas, which shines in your sparkling eyes, which beams in your shining cheeks, is a great treasure for you. Remember this point well. ”
And: “Falling of semen brings death; preservation of semen gives life. Semen is the real vitality in men. It is the hidden treasure in man. It imparts Brahma-Tejas to the face and strength to the intellect.” The Indian practice of Bramacharya requires(amongst other things) that one does not waste Veerya.
To those who practise QIGong/Chi Kung in China it is known as Jingqi, and many teachers of the art require that their students retain it in order to be able to train properly.
American Chi Gong Master Gary J Clyman says that retaining semen is the most important unbreakable basic law of those wishing to become Chi Gong practitioners. “Masturbating is considered “energy wastage” in relationship to your internal energy cultivation practice.”
