Celibacy is not easy at all. Your post quoting Swami Sivananda describes the difficulty.
As a first step, one should pray to the Guru to help you out in this. With grace of Guru and Almighty, nothing is impossible.
You try the following:
[li]At the dietary level, stop consuming meat, eggs, onion and garlic and reduce intake of common salt. You could replace common salt with mountain salt.[/li][li]At the [I]Hatha Yoga[/I] level you could take up the simplified Vajaroli, which is exactly the same as the second of the five tibetan rites. (Lying down with palms facing the floor, inhaling and then raising up the legs and the head, till the legs are vertically up and then exhaling further and further bringing about a strain just below the abdomen and maintaining this final position for some time, which is to be increased from say 5 seconds to 20 seconds. Repeat 3 to 7 times increasing with practice.[/li][li]At the attitude level, one could read literature of the saints and yes, you could chant the siddha mantra,[I][B]“Aum Namo Narayanaya”[/B][/I], whenever the mind is thus troubled.[/li][/ol]
Having said this, I must also say that the introductory practice of mahayoga, in which the mind gets engaged in only and only Prana, is definitely the simplest and highest yoga practice. Here is how:
[li]Sit in any comfortable pose on a wool mat laid on the floor. Relax the body to the maximum possible.[/li][li]Calmly close the eyes with an [I]inner attitude[/I] of surrender tor [I]Pana[/I], the divine life force in us that drives the body and mind.[/li][li][B]Allow[/B] Prana to move the air into and out of the body. Do not impose any breathing. Simply follow the air that [B]automatically[/B] enters and leaves the body.[/li][/ol]
Practise this sitting for 3 minutes or more as per available time. By this practice, slowly, your question will get answered from within.
