Ojas, Shukra & Tummo

Postby dakini_boi » Thu Dec 08, 2011 5:13 pm

If shukra is a waste product, and ojas is generally not lost in the discharge of shukra - then what is the rationale behind not ejaculating when practicing tummo?

Good question.

It looks like you've been following the discussion in the "End of the Kali Yuga" thread in the Lounge, that started with this post:

viewtopic.php?f=36&t=6111&start=40#p71513

It would worth reitering some of the points made there when going further into this topic.

Oh, I thought it was the ojas that was important. Do shukra and ojas have different roles in tummo, or do they act together as the basis for bliss?

Also, what is the relationship between bindu and ojas?

Does shukra get converted to ojas?

If so, why is shukra considered a waste product?
