A talk about Chastity and Celibacy.

Father! Practically all the sects and religions of the world preach different ways of spiritual formation of a man. Some of them believe attainment of the higher state to be possible through taking the vow of Celibacy and Chastity. Please, Father, explain, what is meant by each of the paths and where lies the difference?

- Most of the people have a wrong idea of these two notions and usually they mix them up. The path of Chastity is cleanness of man in all the spheres of his interaction with external and internal worlds. Cleanness is inner Emptiness, where there is nobody and nothing. Out of this Emptiness a Master is born. Chastity does not mean celibacy. On the contrary, all the Masters, Teachers and Lords went through the experience of married life while going the paths of their perfection. They had wives, gave birth to children. For some of them the creativity of childbirth was the essence of the incarnation. In this way, through transmitting their blood to their children, grandchildren and grand grandchildren of the next generation the cleaning of the blood of the whole mankind, having become turbid in the result of human deeds and thoughts, occurred. Thus the shoots of the new human races germinated, stopping degeneration of the gold gene pool of the Planet.

The difference of these two paths lies in the fact that Celibacy doesnt always imply a path of Cleanness of mans Thoughts, Words and Deeds of a man. It has rather the form of the Law than the Aspiration. Ill show you, Tsefeya, a vivid episode from the life of Mongolian nation, when the Path of Celibacy changed the way of evolution of one of the oldest races on the Planet. Militant Mongolians had always represented a serious threat not only to the peoples of Asia, but as it turned out to the countries of Europe, as well. For a period of many years the Chinese Empire had been defeated by victorious Mongolians. Nobody was able to pacify the rebellious spirit of this nation. Even after the disintegration of the Empire of Chingiskhan, Mongolia representing at that time a number of estates each with its own duke at the head, Mongolians remained unconquerable. It was impossible to subjugate them physically. So, a plan based on the penetration into Mongolia of a foreign religion was worked out by external forces of some of the bordering countries, being interested in subjugation of a freedom-loving nation. In 1576 at the congress of the majority of Mongolian dukes, with Dalai-Lama III participating, Buddhism was adopted as the state religion of the country. One would think, how could this innovation weaken the Mongolian nation? The acknowledgement of monkhood in Buddhism, as playing an important role on the ways to liberation, had extremely negative consequences for the future evolution of Mongolian nation. In the XVIIth century 40% of the male population of the country and that is about 100.000 of nomads took the vow of celibacy and started to lead a settled way of life in monasteries. Such a rapid growth of Buddhist temples in Mongolia led to the decrease of birth rate in the country. Now, with a considerable part of Mongolians being in monasteries, having lost their militancy, it was not a matter of great difficulty for the conquerors to cope with recalcitrant nation. Having been formed at the beginning of the XVIIth century Manchurian Qing Dynasty conquered Mongolia and for a period of three centuries continued keeping the nation under its heel. Since that moment in the history of the country a long lasting period of annihilation of the Great Spirit of Mongolian Nation had started.
