Celibacy/Abstinence/Expert Profile

I can answer questions to all those who are curious about the celibacy challenge, to those who doubt that celibacy is possible, and to those need tips concerning the pitfalls of an abstinent life.

Experience in the area

I've been interested in sexual restraint for several years now, and as of mid-March of 2006, became a strict celibate.


I am a brother in the Brotherhood of the Sacred Word.


I am a webmaster and frequent contributor for the inspirational "celibacy.info" and currently working on co-authoring "The Bliss of the Celibate" with Julian Lee (a celibacy guru of some fame). I have a book written in Chinese and published in China, called 《我不是老外》 or "I'm Not a Foreigner" which explores questions of parenting and growing pains.


I'm a confirmed Buddhist under the master Chuanzhen Fashi in Nanjing, China. I've visited and studied under the great Karunamayi in Penusila, Andhra Pradesh, India.
