Lots of hue and cry about Man-Man sexual relationship in India recently over a High Court decision. Babas are out in the field claiming this skewed sexual preference can be cured using Yoga and Pranayama while Babes are hell bent to prove this urge of copulating with same sex among the chosen ones as “Natural” and thus demand keeping it out of purview of law. They claim this is an act which is confined to bed-room and hence is very personal thus shall not affect the society at large. These self-proclaimed advocates and activists (surprisingly some of them are women and very much straight) are saying that it is psychologically accepted phenomenon and thus can not be treated as criminal activity. These straight women and men, advocating Gay-Lesbian rights are shouting at top of their voices to free these poor people from social sensorship and moral scanning.
I have been asked to give my opinion on this.. I am sure the person who asked me to put my views here was either looking for an approval for his point of view but if I did that I shall not be honest to myself. On the first place I am still having my own doubts on what is natural. No woman wants to be trated as woman and Men have not remained men. Both are facing identity crisis, both have lost their psychological charactierists and thus no wonder if only body and bodily acts would become criterian for this distinction..
As I see.. a straight person in sexual preference is not doing anything different or more pious than the person who is seeking it through the conjugation with same sex. Both are seeking Ananada and both are criminal in the sense that they have not been able to see anything beyond this. A Gay or a Lesbian is no way different than ordinary person who has so called natural choice in his sexual act however both of these can be forgiven if they are using this act or for that matter every act of their life to get nearer to the only source of ultimate knowledge, unhindered bliss and deathlessness.
Does that mean I am pro-Gay Lesbians? No! I am against the mindset of every person who feels that just getting the act right or getting the right partner for sexual gratification is the end of life. And there is no harm in using any or even many partners if you are aware of your deepest desires and genuinely searching for the source of that.
For these people who want to prove that Man is a Man and a Woman is a Woman only there is a piece of advise. Being 100% man or 100% woman is almost impossible because every human body and psyche, be it man’s or woman’s stays that way because it is able to maintain that very delicate balance of Yin and Yang energy. Biologists call it Harmonal balance. However if you go deeper in these Man-Man or Woman-Woman relationships you would find there is still a male and a female existing, although both may be in similar bodies of Man or Woman. Even these relationships get stable only and only when there is an agreement who will play Male part and who will play Female part. There is no other way in existence! Considering someone Male and female only because of their physical construction is erroneous and misleading. In a Male-Male relationship one has to be lesser male than the other and thus he plays female. Same goes true in Female-Female relationship.. one has to be lesser Female than the other. This role gets fixed overtime and there is least possibility of role-reversal in fact.
Although theer are definitely hormonal therapies, psycho-therapies and there are certain Tantric Therapies as well to treat the above defficiency however that should be only done when there is a request from the person affected.
As usual Baba Ramdev has started behaving like a cynic. For Baba everything under the sun is curable through Yoga and Pranayama. He is not only challenging the doctors but also trying to prove that every other therapy is useless. He is the same Baba who once used to claim that there is no need of any medicine and his Pranayamas will cure cancer but only till the time his factories got set up and started producing Ayurvedic Medicines. Now Muktavati along with Kapalbhati has become the recipe for hypertension. Earlier prescription used to be only Kapalbhati and Bhramari Pranayama. (laughs)
[For your information I am once again reiterating that Baba Ramdev is violating the golden Vedic law of Yoga which clearly says that Pranayama should not be practised before cleansing of Nadis (known as Nadi Shodhan).]
If you forget the ultimate target of this human life then you will definitely find yourselves entangled between so many do’s and dont’s. Unfortunately they all feel and think that their motivators in life are different. Some are feeling they live to convert their dreams into reality (they call it creativity), some feel they are after success (I’ m yet to hear the static definition of this term), some feel money and riches are what they are looking at (I’m not sure what they want to buy from this), some say they are working for making their names immortal and so on.. Why I call it unfortunate is because it is only blindedness and idioticity of people to not be able to see the basic driver of their all ambitions and thus depriving themselves of the ultimate fruit of contentment and bliss.
If we observe these desires closely and crystallize them we will find there are only three basic drivers of any human being – Desire to stay here forever, Desire to know everything , Desire to attain permanant joyous state (bliss). And if we combine these three we arrive at “Sat-Chit-Anand”.. Sadchidaananda, which is synnonym of God in Indian Spirituality. And only when you have intellect and eyes to see through your desires you come to know what you are looking at ultimately.
So hold your thoughts before you jump on to conclusion that everything is right for you only because you are ejaculating at right places. You need more awareness to see what is that you are looking for through your orgasms. Awareness is the key for all sorts of transformation. Gay or No Gay, you can not stay in peace if you are living your life unaware.. becoming aware is the only way. Through this awareness only you can have that ultimate orgasmic experience.
