Sahaja’s decision to become celibate doesn’t mean that he will not continue to honor and glorify the Feminine, in all her aspects… The transfigurative tantric vision of women will continue to be an important part of the teachings of our school. A spiritual vision of sexuality will continue to be taught in Hridaya, as is mentioned in the Hridaya Vision on Tantra and Sexuality… So, we will continue to give guidance and inspire people on the path of conscious loving and sexuality. Sahaja’s decision is his commitment, done for the Love of God.

Abstinence can also be a form of affirmation, esteem, and admiration of the Feminine. We can remember the example of Ramakrishna, who was celibate and was perhaps the greatest adorer of the Divine Mother.
