There are no lude discussions here, no "adult links, pics" etc. This is an information page specifically
to assist in making a clear definition as to what is Krishna consciousness and what is not.

If you are attracted to neither male nor female, you are liberated

Prabhupada turned into an abandoned field where we saw many peacocks -- the resplendent males as well as the plainer females.

Guru dasa remarked, "Among the birds, the males are more beautiful than the females."

"Among the humans the women are," said Prabhupada. "And among the Mohammedans a man with a big beard and mustache is considered very beautiful."

"Then we are the least beautiful," said Guru dasa. "We have no hairs."

"Yes, nobody likes us," said Prabhupada, smiling. "We are neither male or female. No one knows who we are. It is very good. If you are attracted to neither male nor female, you are liberated."

Prabhupada had everyone laughing, but even the humorous moment was deep with self-realization. As I hurried to keep my servant's place at Prabhupada's side, I felt all my desires for seeing Vrndavana through his eyes were being fulfilled. He was truly leading us into the meaning of the dhama. If only I could stop dwelling on bodily and mental considerations and simply surrender to his service.

- From the "Life with the Perfect Master" by HH Satsvarupa Dasa Goswami



Some of our congregation have approached me to make some comment on the pros' and cons' of the various forms and deviations of sex life that are so prevailent in modern society. In Vedik Culture sex is little dealt with, it is seen as a function of procreation rather than a central focus for the people's pleasure and sub-culture.

It has its shastra like KAma sutras, which today have been very much over estimated, mostly taken out of context and over emphaised for sensual pleasures only, minimising functionality, and cultural values associated with the adherants of such sutras - a little like the accepting the egg producing rear end of the chicken while neglecting to fulfill the demands of the mouth end. If one carefully studies the KAma sutra one will find many restrictions, and guidelines meant to protect the chaste and faithful, while fulfilling the needs and desires of the masses. I had to study it during my time at University studying Social Anthropology. That is a whole different discussion, that thankfully I'm not giving energy toward getting involved in.

Here we are attempting to address some of these topics from a Krishna conscious perspective, and frankly have no interest in any other misdirected understanding or attempt to enjoy or suffer any other directive for which these activities have become known today.

Srimad Bhagavad Gita gives the bottom line on sex, where Lord Sri Krishna asures His devotee, dharmäviruddho bhüteshu kämo ’smi bharatarshabha - "I am sex life which is not contrary to religious principles, Oh Lord of the Bhäratas [Arjuna]". (Bhagavad Gita 7:1.)

"Marriage on the principles of religious life is therefore
current in all civilized human society
because that is the way for restricted sex life."
(His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.Bhagavad Gita4:26.purport.)

"Kandarpa is the sex desire for presenting
   good sons; therefore Kandarpa is the representative of Krsna.
   Sometimes sex is engaged in only for sense gratification; such sex
   does not represent Krsna. But sex for the generation of good
   children is called Kandarpa and represents Krsna."
(His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Bhagavad Gita 10:28.purport.)

Before readers comment, and put forward what form of sex is preferable to them, the fact needs to be stated that choice or preference in sense gratification as mentioned in the above quoted extract has nothing to do with this page. This page is simply about what is presented by shastra, and what is upheld by pure Vaishnava Acharyas. Certainly other ideas and ideals may be found as there are 18 Puranas, some in the mode of goodness, some in the mode passion, and some in the mode of ignorance, thus all manner of things can be supported in Vedik culture. Having said that, let us look to see what is conducive to becoming detached from material entanglement, and to become attached to Lord Sri Krishna, and then aspire to follow that path.

In that regard, we have some nice links here that will help one to aim in that Sattvik pantha (direction of the mode of goodness) at least.
