    Lust in gurbani means sexual desire. Nanak says that the world is obsessed with it.

    Which I have seen to be true.

    No, not "sexual desire". Lust. Blinding, burning, dominating drive to acquire (usually in Gurbani's use I think) sexual intimacy with the object of one's lust.

    It's false to say it simply means "sexual desire" since you need that to have kids, and loving intimacy with your spouse. Perfectly good, natural and healthy.

    It takes away your good sense, causes you to make unvirtuous choices, and most of all steals/blocks your connection to Naam.
