Hi. I've been reading "The Practice of Brahmacharya" by Swami Sivananda, and he says that marriage is not nessesary to attain enlightenment. But according to Samael Aun Weor, it is nessesary to reach the highest level. Acclevelg to Weor, doing tantra with a partner is absolutely necessary to attain the highest level. Is this true? Is there a difference between the highest level attainable by single people versus couples doing tantra? If Weor is right, then it must mean that monks and nuns of the past have never truly attained the highest level. Also, how can our enlightenment be dependant on the external circumstance of having a partner to do tantra with? This goes against a lot of other teachings which argue that enlightenment is not dependant on external events or other people. Will you please elaborate on this? Your feedback is much appreciated.

In ancient times, monasteries served the purpose of training monks and nuns to work with sexual energy so as to prepare them for a matrimony, as indicated by the word seminary; seminal; semen.

שֶׁמֶן Shemen is oil in Hebrew, used for anointing initiates, a symbol of transmutation and those working within alchemy. This is the work with the creative energies.

However, monasteries have lost the meaning of this tradition completely.

In the Piscean era that Sivananda belonged, alchemy was forbidden to mention to the public. But we are now in the Aquarian era, the age of the dissemination of knowledge, the water carrier: the knowledge of sexual genesis.

Regarding sex as the path to liberation, study the book below!
