THE CELIBACY QUESTION
A series of on going interviews on the question of celibacy (Brahmacharya) and other related issues, practices in the western and eastern spiritual traditions. The path of the the monastic, (purification and renunciation) vis a vis the path of the house holder, lay person teacher, Yoga, asceticism and the path of Tantra.
The following question was submitted by Stuart Sovatsky, PHD

And is this a higher state than what Buddha and founder of Advaita Vedanta, Adi Shankara, taught to monks and lay people and lived personally
