Single minded to the point of recklessness meaning
Sex is an integral part of lifehuman, animal and plant. Sex energy entirely fills the mind, intellect, Prana, senses and the whole body. The desire for money, the desire for a son, the desire for property, the desire for houses, the desire for cattle and other desires come later on. Transmutation of the sex desire is a very potent, efficacious and satisfactory way to realize eternal bliss. The minds of people are filled with sexual thoughts. The whole world is under a tremendous sexual intoxication. It is all fashion, restaurants, hotels, dinners, dances, races and cinema.
While this aspect of life is regulated by nature in plants and by instinct in animals, in man it is left to his common-sense, intelligence and his developed reason to control and regulate the same. It is the oldest of the factors that have gone into the constitution of the human being. But the central strong desire is the sexual desire. Because the whole creation of this universe is to be kept up, God has made the sexual desire very, very powerful. If the ego is destroyed by Vichara or enquiry of "Who am I? Man, master of his destiny, has lost his divine glory and has become a slave, a tool, in the hands of sex and ego on account of ignorance. All are deluded and move in the world with perverted intellects. Their life ends in eating, drinking and procreating. Passion has introduced new fashions not only in London, Paris and Lahore, but even in Madras amongst the Brahmin girls of orthodox families who apply Cherry Blossom Powder and Hazeline Snow to their faces, instead of the sacred turmeric powder, and dress their hair like the French girls.
We pray that the blessings of the holy Master may pour on all those who may chance to go through the following pages and open up a new chapter in their lives. Let all my Indriyas be ever engaged in Thy sweet service. Make me as pure as Swami Vivekananda, Swami Dayananda, Bhishma Pitamaha, Hanuman or Lakshmana. That which differentiates a man from an animal is Dharma, Viveka and Vichara Sakti.
Wipe out the sexual Samskaras (impressions) and Vasanas (subtle desires). Make me a true Brahmachari, Sadachari and Oordhvareta Yogi. Jnana and Vichara can be secured only by the preservation of Veerya.
If lust, which is the source of all enjoyments in this world, ceases, then all worldly bondage, which has its substratum in the mind, will cease.Those persons, who, in spite of the knowledge of the non-existence of happiness, both in the past and in the present, in the baneful objects of the world, do yet entangle themselves in them with their thoughts clinging to them, deserve the appellation of an ass, if not a worse one.If you do not possess Viveka, if you do not try your best for salvation, if you spend your lifetime in eating, drinking and sleeping, you are a horizontal being only, having to learn some lessons from those animals, which possess far more self-restraint. If men and women restrict sexual indulgence to mere procreation, then that itself is observance of Brahmacharya.This has been done as an act of loving service to modern youth who are often left groping in the dark by an irresponsible society. At the heat of sexual excitement, he repeats the same ignoble act again and again. Man only violates the laws of nature and consequently suffers from innumerable diseases.These days we often hear about "juvenile delinquency," but this juvenile delinquency itself is the result of adult irresponsibility. He has degenerated to a level far lower than that of animals in this respect.
