नैनीताल जिले के भवाली से लगभग पांच किलोमीटर की दूरी तय करने पर आप "घोड़ाखाल" पहुंच सकते हैं जो न्याय गोलू देवता के मंदिर के लिए प्रसिद्ध है। समुद्र तल से 2000 मीटर की ऊंचाई पर स्थित इस आकर्षक मंदिर को "घंटियों का मंदिर" भी कहा जाता है।

Good Morning!

Continuing our #Dialogue on #Gems and #GemTherapy, today we shall dwell on the next two #GemStones.

#YellowSapphire and #Diamond. (1/13)

2-Yellow Sapphire is D highest quality Gemstone used 4 #Jupiter.

Substitute Gemstones for Yellow Sapphire are Yellow Tourmaline, #Citrine, Yellow #Zircon and #Topaz.

In my view, I have seen that Yellow Sapphire is one of the most widely prescribed Gemstone. (2/13)

3-Being related to #Jupiter it is bound to activate within you – the #Energy of the #Universal #Guru.

Out of the four #Vedic #Purusharthas, of #Dharma, #Artha, #Kama and #Moksha, Yellow Sapphire well and truly stands for #Dharma.

It is not possible to exhaustively list Do’s and Dont’s of Brahmacharya as they depend on the context. The more general precepts (Sāmānya Dharma) are listed by Patanjali as the 5 Yamas and 5 Niyamas, in his Yogasūtras.

In my thread, I gave a rationalization for Brahmacharya. 🙏
The Dharmaśāstras provide more detailed examples for Brahmacharya, by giving different contexts, so that a person can learn from them and generalize appropriately to suit to a different situation.

In this thread, I want to discuss about Brahmacharya: an ideal for human life in Hinduism, but which the Judiciary of India is seeking to destroy in every manner possible.

First, I wish to point to this excellent essay in @IndiaFactsOrg on #Brahmacharya.…
Brahmacharya is typically translated as celibacy. For certain people and stages of life, this is a correct translation. But it is actually different from that, and much larger in scope and intent.

Here is Gandhi who popularized the idea of Brahmacharya as celibacy.
As the essay points out, Brahmacharya is not necessarily to be equated with celibacy.

For a married person (in the Gṛhasthāśrama of life), Brahmacharya does not mean celibacy, but rather adhering to the marital vow of having sex with just the spouse, as opposed to adultery.
