Divya Prerna Prakash : What's the controversy ?

About the Book :

The book on its initial pages carries on the following foreword and word of introduction about the book : Divya Prerna Prakash.
" Many good persons have been degraded by following the Freudian psychology, whereas many ordinary people have become great by following the Yoga psychology of Patanjali. ‘The Secret of Eternal Youth’ is a book based on the psychology of Rishi Patanjali. It must be read without fail. As you read this book, you will gradually get divine inspiration and light. You must not only read this book five times yourself but should also carry out the divine service of distributing it to others. This book provides moral understanding to the youths and helps them to get rid of their evil sex habits bringing about a divine transformation in their lives. So you too carry out the noble service of distributing this book to 2-5 people without fail. It will be considered a service to the nation and mankind as a whole, nay, to God Himself "
This book is published and marketed by Asaram Bapu ashrams, as a effective means of countering rampant moral degradation amongst youth of India following blind western following and in absence of appropriate guardianship.

The Controversy :

Recently, many news articles have reported this book to instead being a book which induces sex, enlargement of sexual organs, safe sex and tips on sex. Must i remind them, that's the work of our esteemed journal houses and main stream media. The voice which remains mum on nude cover photos of India Today Magazines and blatant advertising of sexual products on back pages of Dainik Bhaskar, the voice which happily lauds pervert conversation and ideas on AIB Knockout is the voice that wishes to calm and destroy down any voice that urges Indians to be honest with their family and increase self control.

Lies and Distortion

As opposed to media reports that the book is on sex tips and sexual practices. The book actually compiles stories from Mahabharat, Works of Patanjali, Upanishads and stories from life of other great scholars. We present few excerpts from the book for your analysis :

"The present education system - a legacy of the British colonial regime - is completely indifferent towards moral values. Consequently, today’s students start leading an unrestrained and indulgent life, even as bachelors. There is also a growing tendency among today’s youth to blindly imitate western conduct and manners. Thus they indulge in fashion, impure eating, immoral behaviour, bad company, vulgarity, cinema, etc., thereby suffering a gradual degeneration. They are becoming weak and lustful. Their sorry state indicates their complete ignorance about the glory of brahmacharya."
Continuing on, it quotes Swami Ramatirth's works and draws an interesting parallel from a survey conducted in Cambridge University.

"When Swami Rama Tirtha was a professor, he had drawn a list of successful and unsuccessful students which brought him to the conclusion that those students, who were engrossed in base pleasures during the examination days or immediately before the examination, were often unsuccessful - even though they were considered to be good students in the class. On the other hand, all those students whose minds were pure and focused during the examination days, were successful.

A survey conducted in the colleges of Britain’s world famous ‘Cambridge University’ also gives a warning to unrestrained students. Accordingly, those colleges in which the students led an unrestrained life overindulging in promiscuity, showed poorer results compared to those in which the students were more restrained.  To control sexual desire is a Herculean task. That is why Manu Maharaj states, “One should not sit even with his own mother, sister, or daughter in solitude. The sense organs are not easily controllable and may lead to the downfall of even wise people.”
