Sat Sri Akal :)

I just want to know what everyone believes on following issues -

1. Non Veg and Sikhism

2. Homosexuality and Sikhism

3. Masturbating/Watching Porn and Sikhism

I respect other religions too, but I am against dera/sant/baba/mullah/pandit culture. I believe our mind should be pure, others things are not important.

I am here for gyan, I am in mid 20s, last 2-3yrs have been very tough, I am strict veg now but I want to join gym now and many people advised me to start consuming non veg again, I can't afford expensive protein shakes blah blah. and you all know homosexuality is legalized in India, I am very happy, dont worry about me, it was just disheartening to see cruel people abusing god gifted souls, I feel we should leave right wrong/ paap swarg narak to supreme God. Some people are homosexual just like some people are left handers ! and Masturbatory behavior has been documented in a very wide range of species. Individuals of some species have been known to create tools for masturbation purposes.

Thanks. :)

I just want to know what everyone believes on following issues -

1. Non Veg and Sikhism


On this issue I have linked the above post on there.

We are Sikhs and as Sikhs it is OUR choice to eat meat or not. You will not be punished, or condemned if you do or don’t.

Page 1289 Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji
mehlaa 1.
maas maas kar moorakh jhagrhay gi-aan Dhi-aan nahee jaanai.
ka-un maas ka-un saag kahaavai kis meh paap samaanay.
gaiNdaa maar hom jag kee-ay dayviti-aa kee baanay.
maas chhod bais nak pakrheh raatee maanas khaanay.
farh kar lokaaN no dikhlaavahi gi-aan Dhi-aan nahee soojhai.
naanak anDhay si-o ki-aa kahee-ai kahai na kahi-aa boojhai.
anDhaa so-ay je anDh kamaavai tis ridai se lochan naahee.
maat pitaa kee rakat nipannay machhee maas na khaaNhee.

First Mehl:
The fools argue about flesh and meat, but they know nothing about meditation and spiritual wisdom.
What is called meat, and what is called green vegetables? What leads to sin?
It was the habit of the gods to kill the rhinoceros, and make a feast of the burnt offering.
Those who renounce meat, and hold their noses when sitting near it, devour men at night.
They practice hypocrisy, and make a show before other people, but they do not understand anything about meditation or spiritual wisdom.
O Nanak, what can be said to the blind people? They cannot answer, or even understand what is said.
They alone are blind, who act blindly. They have no eyes in their hearts.
They are produced from the blood of their mothers and fathers, but they do not eat fish or meat.
Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji


2. Homosexuality and Sikhism


There are any views on this ranging from condemnation to acceptance.

My view is, that is a relationship (regardless of gender) is not based on Kaam (sexual obsession), then that relationship is fine. At the end of the day, the sould does not have a gender, so as men and women we are all the same.



3. Masturbating/Watching Porn and Sikhism


I think on masturbation, it is something of a natural phenomena and should not be looked at with disgust. It is a private matter and everyone should make their own minds up about it.

Porn can make people have a skewed view of sexuality and relationships and can cause people to become obsessed with Kaam, so it maybe something to be avoided. I know some married couple who use porn to enhance their relationship (sexual techniques) etc, and I would hardly call them obsessed with sex.


I respect other religions too, but I am against dera/sant/baba/mullah/pandit culture. I believe our mind should be pure, others things are not important.


I am against Dera, Baba Sant Cult culture. It is a blot on Punjab and India.

More than being minds pure, our actions should be pure. Our minds can wander, and that’s fine, so long as we don’t act on those wandering thoughts. Control, of Kaam, Krodh, Moh, Lobh and Hankaar is far more important.



I am here for gyan, I am in mid 20s, last 2-3yrs have been very tough, I am strict veg now but I want to join gym now and many people advised me to start consuming non veg again, I can't afford expensive protein shakes blah blah.


Eat what you want.

You know in the old days, Hindu parents who sons wanted to become Muslim used to say to their children, if you want to eat meat, then become a Sikh as they are allowed.

To this day, the Sikh Rehat Maryada only forbids “Kuttha meat” (Halal, Kosher, Bali sacrificed meat) for an Amritdhari Sikh.

The Sant/Dera, Vaishno Babay walay have made vegetarianism an issue in order to recruit more people.


and you all know homosexuality is legalized in India, I am very happy, dont worry about me, it was just disheartening to see cruel people abusing god gifted souls, I feel we should leave right wrong/ paap swarg narak to supreme God. Some people are homosexual just like some people are left handers ! and Masturbatory behavior has been documented in a very wide range of species. Individuals of some species have been known to create tools for masturbation purposes.

Thanks.


Nothing wrong with homosexuality. Some of by best friends are homosexual, and they are the most spiritual people I know.

Don’t dwell on masturbation too long as it is a personal issue.
