The answer to this question depends on your spiritual intentions and aspirations.

On a basic level, the answer to this question is simple: you should either make a lifelong commitment to one person and marry them or take a vow of never marrying and hence, of celibacy. The key point here is being committed to marriage or to celibacy and ensuring you maintain the purity in whichever path you choose.

It is important to recognise that celibacy is the life force and essence of the body. It is the optimal tool for health and spiritual progress. Moreover, if you couple, being a celibate and acquiring the knowledge of the Self then you progress tremendously spiritually. In addition, if you want to become fully enlightened then it is not possible without being celibate.

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, a spiritually enlightened being says, “There is nothing greater than the mere thought of taking the vow of celibacy and the firm decision of remaining in it. Such a person has grasped the essence of all the scriptures. The person, who makes a firm decision of being free from all these entanglements of the world, has understood all the scriptures. The illusion of sex is such that it will sink all, even the one who thinks that he has no attachment to anything in the world. This illusion of sex has sunk great saints and masters from tremendous spiritual heights.”

Even if you are unable to practice celibacy it is important that you never ever oppose it. Our thoughts related to celibacy stem from our previous life. Seeds which have been sown from our previous life result in effects in this life. Thus, as far as possible you should maintain an inner resolve in this life to be celibate. For without an intent towards celibacy you will not be able to realise the ultimate liberation from the endless cycles of birth and death.

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifested within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able to help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization.
