What is meant by Chira kaala Brahmacharitwa?

Since it is prohibited in kaliyga, how can one avoid it?

    Chirakala Brahmacharitya means eternal studentship .. i.e a person lives in Brahmacharya Asram all throughout his life .. it is probably another name for Naishthika Brahmacharya .. Dharma Sindhu mentions it as forbidden in Kali Yuga. – Rickross Jan 13 '19 at 9:42

    How can one avoid it? The answer will be "by getting married" :D – Rickross Jan 14 '19 at 7:41
  • @Rickross but married people also can follow brahmacharya right? – hanugm Jan 14 '19 at 7:48
  • Yes can .. but they will still be called Grihasta (householder) and not Brahmachari ... Here the word is referring to a particular phase of life viz- studentship.. such an perpetual student can not marry in his life – Rickross Jan 14 '19 at 9:54

    hmm not sure but many illustrious persons became Sannyasi in this Yuga.. for e.g Ramakrishna, Chaitanya etc.. and of course Adi Shankara and others – Rickross Jan 14 '19 at 12:42
