Re: Semen retentive sex and Buddhist practice

Squizzle Bizzle I wouldn’t recommend messing with your chakras. Your root chakra is at your root for a reason. And your heart chakra is the same. “Drawing” energy from your root to your heart - I think that’s a recipe for disaster. How often do you masturbate? How often do you look at porn? If you ...

Have any monks suggested a particular order for studying the entirety of the Pali Canon?

I have been reading through the discourses, and I realise that reading them cover to cover might not be the most effective way to read it. Leigh Brasington does this here: http://www.leighb.com/studygid.htm but it is not totally comprehensive Also he is not a monk, I thought that there might be some...

Re: Semen retentive sex and Buddhist practice

The Buddha did talk about these four totalities: the red, blue, yellow, and white totalities - external and unbounded (infinite in other words). He does not talk about where in the body the totalities make contact. But, if you believe in Chakras - the answer is quite simple. What the OP is hinting ...

Re: Semen retentive sex and Buddhist practice

The idea that "energy is lost" due to lustful thoughts, more than due to ejaculation, is something I've only heard from you. I have never seen the Buddha say that the problem with craving is energy drain from the body. That sounds very incorrect to me. In any case, withholding ejaculation is *exerc...

Re: Semen retentive sex and Buddhist practice

So, you want to engage in sexual intercourse without emitting semen. I think this should be possible. But what does retention of semen have to do with elimination of sexual desire? “Bhikkhus, that one can engage in sensual pleasures without sensual desires, without perceptions of sensual desire, wi...

Re: Semen retentive sex and Buddhist practice

I have my own opinions too. So I would ask; is this in your opinion? What sutta references do you have to support that loving kindness comes from the root. I think you’re right partially (or in one degree) - but really; what is this except for personal opinion? Tell me more. Maybe I’ll understand. ...

Re: Semen retentive sex and Buddhist practice

Hello: Personally i think the practice of being semen retentive while having sex is foolish :tongue: . Its like being addicted to gambling, and commiting to the practice of visiting casinos, but without playing. Its a waste of effort and energy. I don´t say there is absolutely nothing to learn, but...

Re: Semen retentive sex and Buddhist practice

… I am curious the general consensus here on semen retention. If you have nocturnal emission without lustful thoughts, the ejaculation is harmless. That is according to Taoist immortals, and also you can know from your own experience. All cells in the body die, the longest life span of any cell is ...

Re: Semen retentive sex and Buddhist practice

There is nothing wrong with having sex with your spouse if you are a householder, so why complicate things? My guess is these sorts of practice are likely pointless, and at most damaging because they lead to further obsession with sex and the body. The practice of restraint is not a form of obsessi...

Re: Semen retentive sex and Buddhist practice

I agree that ejaculation depletes energy, and that celibacy is important for attaining fourth jhana. However, your body will "spill" semen naturally, if not through wet dreams, then through other means. It's probably one of the hardest inner battles for a man to fight. But everything has a price, a...
