I was drawn towards temples and worship of God since my early childhood. But around the age of 14-15, I fell into bad company. I foolishly made friends with boys addicted to bad habits They tought me masturbation. The mere sight of a girl was enough to excite me and I would look for private place. I would masturbation 3-4 times a day. But fortunately, my pledge of daily worship remained unbroken and I was regular in performing it.
Loss of semen made me weak. My vision would often become hazy and I would get tired even doing just a little hard work and would start panting. At times, I would faint from excessive weakness. My willpower became very weak. I became very hot tempered. My parents would try to show me the right path, but I would not listen to them and argue angriliy with them. By God’s grace I happened to read “Youvan Suraksha”, a book published by the ashram. This changed the course of my life completely. My bad habit was gone forvever. I have never found such wonderful ideas in any other book. I salute those blessed ones who are instrumental in taking this book to people.
I too will try to make this book abailable to schools, colleges and villages. A thousand obeisances to my beloved Gurudev, by whose grace I was able to get rid of this bad habit of mine!
