Truth Seeker: Swami ji. If a person did not followed brahmacharya in his early life, should he commit suicide? or what kind of repentance should be done in order to be free from all sins?
There are three types of sins- viz-mansa, vacha , karmanna.i.e., if a person thinks in mind about a sin, it means he has committed it. It is –‘mansa’.

Secondly, if a person speaks about committing sin, it means he has committed sin, which is called ‘vacha’.

Thirdly, if a person actually commits i.e., actually acts to do sin, it means he has committed sin which is called “karmanna”.

So, one should be learned. That if somebody says “should he commit suicide”, so, this is mansa sin and he will be given punishment by God because suicide is heinous sin. Not to follow Brahmacharya, is a separate matter which should not be connected to suicide etc., sin. So, if a person has not followed the path of Brahmacharya earlier then he should now make up his mind firmly and start following Brahamcharya path immediately.

Secondly, he should vow that he’ll never loose Brahmacharya path. This will be his repentance. I would advise you to read my book “ Brahmacharya dukh Nivarak divya manni” The price of the book is worth Rs. 100/- each excluding postal charges. The book can be sent to you on receipt of your postal address, if you desire.

Ashish: Namaste Swamiji, Thankyou so much for answering my query of Mind,
Budhi, Soul. Your article was very very interesting and has given me a very clear idea about the same. Regards, Ashish.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. You are always welcome, please. My blessings to you, for a long, happy life.

Mahayogi: Namaste swamiji. Please let me know the similarity and difference between Schizophrenia and Samadhi. i am patient of negative symptoms of schizophrenia.
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. Schizophrenia is a disease which gives pain to a patient whereas Samadhi is a stage where the devotee becomes capable to destroy all the effects of his previous lives and present life’s deeds and thus he destroys all his sorrows and attains samadhi where he realizes God and experiences divine pleasure. He also overcomes cycle of death and birth.
