According to Hinduism, homosexuals are said to possess a hellish mentality and according to the Vedac scriptures on which Hinduism is based, they are classified amongst the demonic breeds of people referred to in Sanskrit as ashuras. The ashuras are described as being irreligious and thoroughly godless due to their addiction to the many sinful pleasures of the flesh. From the Vediv Prospective, ashuras like homosexuals pose a danger to the fabric of society because their primary agenda is to pervert the socio-religious order of society. This is now visible in modern society with the attempt by homosexuals to pervert the religious principles with their demand for ‘same-sex marriage’.
The Vedas say that there is no escape from perpetual suffering for those who indulge in perverse illicit acts like homosexuality and anal sex. Homosexuality is one of the most degraded acts indulged in by humans and is punishable under the stringent laws of nature, referred to in Sanskrit as the laws of karma, which are the natural laws of action and reaction. The life of a homosexual is a life of utter frustration being consumed day and night by perverse sensual demands. A homosexuals mind is always under the grip of an inferiority complex based on the realization that their sexual appetite is abnormal. The internal mental anguish of a homosexual is equal to a living hell and no amount of clamoring for ‘gay rights’ will ever placate their internal subconscious guilt for as long as they live. Due to being consumed by uncontrollable lust, a homosexual cannot comprehend that the material body is not the real self, but a temporary vehicle for the soul, consequently such persons are unable to transcend the physical plane of bodily conception in order to realize that the real self is pure spirit soul, called jiva-atma in Sanskrit. A homosexual is a condemned soul who must endure a life of social rejection as well as ridicule, due to having developed a thoroughly perverse and sinful desire to enjoy sexual relations with those of the same genda.
The scourge of modern society is the proliferation of sexual perverts such as homosexuals and lesbians, who pose one the greatest threats to human morality, due to their aggressive and pompous mentality of self-righteousness, and their attempt to justify their immoral cravings by promoting sexual perversion as a life-style choice of a so-called ‘enlightened generation’. The Vedic scriptures classify homosexuals and lesbians as ashuras, because they posses unclean and perverted sexual habits. The Vedic scriptures forbid men to indulge in such degraded acts as homosexuality, because such acts lead to utter degradation of the soul. Such perverted acts are associated with the class of beings collectively referred to as devils including: goblins called vinayakan, hobgoblins called guhyakas, jinns called vetals, ghosts called bhutas, man-eaters called pisakhas, brahma-rakashakas, pretas, Kushmandas, and yatudhanas, who are inhabitants of the nether-regions of the world.
The Sanskrit word ‘ashura’ means ‘ungodly’ and describes a demon or those who are possessed by a sinful and devilish mentality. Thus the term ‘ashura’ applies to all those who are irreligious and who disobey the principles of religion. In the societies of the ungodly ashuras, all kinds of illicit fornication like homosexuality take place without restriction. In fact, homosexuality is the very antithesis of religion; because such acts like sodomy are condemned by the religious scriptures as unnatural and the vilest form of adultery.
The Bhagavad-gita says that those who are born with divine qualities follow the principles of regulated sex-life and strictly abide by the injunctions in the religious scriptures. The ashuras, those who are born with demonic qualities, reject such scriptural injunctions, due to overpowering lust and the desire to enjoy sinful pleasures. Such degraded pleasures like homosexuality are not even afforded to the lowest grade of animals, only the devils enjoy homosexuality. The Vedas reveal that homosexuality is the sexual preference of ashuras and other varieties of unclean spirits that roam the regions of the damned. The reason that Satan is referred to as being the ‘devil’ is because he relishes anal-sex and other such sinful delights that are forbidden by God.
In the Bhagavad-gita Lord Krishna says. “O son of Pritha, in this world there are two kinds of created beings. One is called the divine and the other demoniac. I have already explained to you at length the divine qualities. Now hear from Me of the demoniac. Those who are demoniac do not know what is to be done and what is not to be done. Neither cleanliness nor proper behavior nor truth is found in them. They say that this world is unreal, with no foundation, no God in control. They say it is produced of sex-desire and has no cause other than lust. Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to destroy the world. Taking shelter of insatiable lust and absorbed in the conceit of pride and false prestige, the demoniac, thus illusioned, are always sworn to unclean work, attracted by the impermanent. They believe to gratify the senses is the prime necessity of human civilization. Thus until the end of life their anxiety is immeasurable.” (Bg.16.6-11)
The demoniac mentality is perfectly described in this verse from the Bhagavad-gita and it is clear that the demons are unable to find any satiation for their lusty desires. On the contrary, such lusty desires will simply go on increasing, because there is no end to such a degraded appetite for sex. Although homosexuals are always full of anxieties on account their sinful acts, and although they suffer perpetually from ridicule, indignation and social torment, throughout their lives, they still continue to engage in such debased activities, due to their uncontrollable appetite for sex. Homosexuals do not have any proper intelligence and due to illusion they cannot understand that they are heading towards an inhuman existence in the next life. They can never free themselves from the miseries that are brought about by following such a thoroughly demonic and irreligious life-style. The only option is to completely stop all indulgence in such an adulterous and perverse form of sex.
In the Old Testament of the Bible there is little tolerance of perverts and the Bible says. “Homosexuals acts are an abomination.” (Levicitus.18.22) “Homosexual should not be allowed to enter the house of God.” (Deuteronomy.23.17) “If a man has sex with another man, kill them both.” (Levicitus.20.13) There is no injunction for killing someone who practices homosexuality in the Vedas, but the Manu Samhita says that if homosexuals are caught in acts of pedophilia or rape, their limbs should be amputated. The same injunction applies to lesbians who seduce innocent girls. Homosexuality was always illegal and it is only in the last decade that the laws have been relaxed in some western countries, simply because within the echelons of politics and power, where lust and avarice is the driving force, homosexuality is rampant, consequently such stringent laws are being subverted by the lusty politicians. Another reason for changing the law is for garnering votes.
The Vedas say that such demoniac persons create their own false God and take shelter of their own interpretation of religious scriptures, in order to support their demonic lifestyle. Such degraded and sinful souls will declare that it is ‘God’s gift’ that they are able to enjoy the ‘divine’ pleasure of homosexuality. The Bible says. “Though shalt not commit adultery,” therefore, adultery cannot possibly be ‘God’s gift’, but that is beyond the comprehension of the ashuras who are completely deluded by lust. “Self-complacent and always impudent, deluded by wealth and false prestige, they sometimes proudly perform sacrifices in name only, without following any rules or regulations. Bewildered by false ego, strength, pride, lust and anger, the demons become envious of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is situated in their own bodies and in the bodies of others, and blaspheme against the real religion.” (Bg.16.1)
The marriage of homosexuals and lesbians in Christian church ceremonies is the perfect example of religion being perverted and misused by the demons. The marriage of homosexual perverts in church certainly spells the death-knell for the Christian faith worldwide. The Christian priesthood appears to be under the same demonic influence for allowing such sacrilegious acts to be performed in the ‘House of God’. The fact that multitudes of Christian priests have been exposed as homosexuals and pedophiles is conclusive evidence that modern-day Christianity has been subverted by the Devil to promote adultery and sexual perversion. The religious institution of holy matrimony between a man and a woman has been created by God for the purpose of purifying the sexual urges of human beings, by engaging them in the procreation of life as a sacred offering to God. Only a man and woman married under a religious covenant can be engaged in the pure act of religiously ordained sex-life. All other forms of sex-life are simply demonic and have no place in the church, what to speak of in Kingdom of God.
The Vedic literatures describe how the universal creation was first manifest. Although God is the original creator, there are others who assist Him in some aspects of creation and management. In both Christian and Islamic belief, it is the hierarchy of angels who are mentioned as being the assistants and messengers of the Lord. The Vedas describe the hierarchy of angels as devas or demigods. The Sanskrit word ‘deva’ means ‘a godly person’ who is a devout servant of the Lord. The devas are delegated certain responsibilities to oversee various aspects of the material creation. Devas are in the same category as angels and also communicate with mankind in a similar fashion. The devas are worshiped in the Rig-veda as being the controlling deities of the natural elements like earth, fire, water, air etc. The followers of the Rig-veda offer sacrifices and pray to the devas to bless them with lasting peace and prosperity, in the same way that Christians pray to the heavenly angels.
Prajapati Brahma, the first created being in the universe and the Patriarch of the demigods and other living beings, is the primary representative of God within the material creation and empowered to act as a secondary creator. Prajapati Brahma has responsibility for the creation of some aspects in the universe, such as the various categories of living entities including the celestial beings, such as; devas, gandharvas, apsaras, siddhas, charanas, vidyadharas, kinnaras, kimpurushas, suparnas, nagas, rakshasas, yakshas, and ashuras. The spirit-souls are all manifested by the Supreme Lord, but the material bodies obtained by the spirit-souls for life in the universe are manifested by Prajapati Brahma, in accordance with the particular karma of each individual soul. The creations of Lord Brahma automatically manifest from his body and mind, at first appearing as subtle matter known as tan-matra, before being transformed into various grosser forms composed of dense material atoms.
The patriarch Brahma is also the father of Manu, who was born from Lord Brahma’s mind. The word ‘mana’ means ‘mind’, and Manu became the progenitor of mankind who began creating progeny by means of copulation instead of by mental-power. The English word ‘man’ is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘manusya’ which means the progeny of Manu, or in other words ‘mankind’. Besides Manu, Lord Brahma created eleven other sons from his mind who were all enlightened beings and designated as the first brahmanas, meaning the knower’s of Brahman or spirit, who were all seers of the Truth and perfected yogis, collectively referred to as the Great Sages.
The Biblical hero Noah is considered by Vedic scholars to be the seventh Manu of the Puranic histories, who survived the pralaya, or the great flood that engulfed the world in an ark along with the great sages. The pralaya brought about the end of the sixth manvatara or time period, which also causes the mass extinction of life on Earth. The Shrimad Bhagavatam says. “The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: O King, who can subdue your enemies, on the seventh day from today the three worlds—Bhu, Bhuvar and Svah—will all merge into the water of inundation. When all the three worlds merge into the water, a large boat sent by Me will appear before you. Thereafter, O King, you shall collect all types of herbs and seeds and load them on that great boat. Then, accompanied by the seven rishis and surrounded by all kinds of living entities, you shall get aboard that boat, and without moroseness you shall easily travel with your companions on the ocean of inundation, the only illumination being the effulgence of the great rishis.” (SB 8.24.32-35)
Thus, Manu and the great sages, who were the custodians of the Vedas, were responsible for regenerating life on Earth once the flood receded. A very interesting fact is that the Puranas reveal that before the great flood; Vaivaswata Manu, the seventh Manu and father of the present human race, took birth in the varsa known as Ramyaka, which is the present-day region of Central Asia between Pamir and the Caspian Sea. This confirms the modern genetic theory that Central Asia is the original homeland both Indians and Europeans, who belong to the Y-haplagroup R1a1. The populations of Central Asia and Europeans possess the same genetic code as the entire population of India. After the flood, Manu took up residence in Northern India in the region known as Brahmavarta, the ancient kingdom of the Manus. All the great sages belonged to the Central Asian region around as Mount Meru, the great mountainous plateau located in the present-day Central Asia region of Tajikistan presently called Pamir.
The Puranas imply that the sacred laws of God kept within the ‘Ark of the Covenant’ were in fact the Vedas. Once the great flood subsided, life was once again recreated by Manu and the great rishis, who became the progenitors of the human tribes that are still present on Earth even to this day. The population of India including the brahmanas, kshatriyas, vaisyas, sudras, and tribal’s, are all descendants of Manu and the great sages. All the brahmana tribes referred to as gotras in Sanskrit, have originally descended from seven prominent rishis. These gotras are mentioned in the shastras known as the Nirni-sindhu, and the Dharma-sindhu, and are as follows: Brighu, Angira, Atri, Vishvamitra, Kasyapa, Vasishtha and Agasyta. The Kshatriya tribes or gotras have descended from Manu, who is the forefather of both the Chandra-vamsa and Surya-vamsa royal dynasties of kings.
The Vedic Puranas explain that besides human beings and the animals, there are other living entities that are referred to as celestial spirits, who, at the time of material creation, proceeded from the body of Prajapati Brahma. These spirits exist in a dimension above the human plane and are divided into two separate categories, the divine and the demonic. “Lord Brahma then gave birth to the demons from his buttocks, and they were very fond of sex. Because they were too lustful, they approached him for copulation. The worshipful Brahma first laughed at their stupidity, but finding the shameless ashuras close upon him, he grew indignant and ran in great haste out of fear.” (SB.3.20.23-24)
The above verse from the Shrimad Bhagavatam, describes the appearance of the first homosexuals who were all ashuras or ungodly demonic creatures that were rejected by Lord Brahma, who was forced to flee in haste when they suddenly began admiring his beauty and were about to approach him to engage in anal sex. These first homosexual beings were similar to malignant spirits like guhyakas (goblins), bhutas (ghosts), pretas (poltergeists), and pishakas (witches). There activities are debased and sinful and always create a disturbance within human society. Malignant spirits like the ghosts or bhutas, are the most common and they generally haunt cemeteries where their dead corpse lies buried because of their deep attachment to their former body. Their habitat includes dark wells, lakes, and they also lurk in certain varieties of trees, like the banyan and bodhi. These malignant living entities are possessed by sinful desirers and are inimical to human beings. Their primary purpose is to create disturbance and also act as instruments of karma for punishing sinful human beings.
Insanity is one such punishment where the malignant spirit enters the subtle life-air of the human victim while he is asleep or under heavy intoxication and dislocates the life-air from the mental faculty. Certain sleep disorders where one wakes up with the body still in a sleeping state as if paralyzed, is also due to a ghost blocking the life-air which is quite a common form of haunting, especially if one is having sexual dreams, which can be overcome by mentally chanting the maha-mantra on waking up in such a condition. The ashuras that proceeded from Prajapati Brahma’s rear-end were consumed by lust and are naturally attracted to the unclean and sinful acts of anal-intercourse. From a gross animalistic perception of sex the backside of both male and female species is the most sexually attractive feature that arouses lusty desires.
A ghost is also an individual soul just like the soul of a human being, but due to grossly sinful acts, they do not receive another material body, but are reborn as an un-embodied and almost invisible entity composed of mind, intelligence and false-ego. However, the other malevolent spirits like guyakas, rakshasas and yakshas, and those that belong to the Siva and the Rahu ganas, posses bodies composed of very subtle aspects of the five material elements, earth, water, fire, air, and ether, that are referred to as tan-matra and generally invisible to the human eye. Ghosts create disturbance for want of a material body and persons who have had the experience of being in a haunted house, are usually made aware of the ghosts presence, because a ghost likes to be recognized and is also proud of his abilities to create disturbance and fear. Some powerful ghosts like Pretas, or poltergeists, who are the ghosts of very sinful brahmanas or degraded members of the priesthood, have the ability, through power of mind, to manipulate material objects by hurling them at great force, as well as animate dead corpses, open doors, turn on taps, and in some cases even kill people.
All of these various species of evil spirits are referred to as the bhuta-ganas. The word ‘bhuta’ meaning ‘evil spirit’ and ‘gana’ meaning ‘legion’. and they are all under the shelter of Lord Brahma’s son, Rudra, also known by the names Shiva, Shambhu and Mahadeva, thus the bhuta-ganas are also called the Shiva-ganas, because the most merciful Lord Shiva is their ishta-devata, or worshipable deity. Only Lord Shiva can associate with such evil spirits and not be contaminated. During the period of an eclipse, all the various bhuta-ganas, including the ganas of the Rahu planet, congregate together and roam over the Earth, contaminating everything and taking possession of many sinful humans at that time. Only the most sinful person will reincarnate as a ghosts to suffer a life of frustration, a type of purgatory, because although the ghost wants to enjoy sense pleasure like a normal person, he can’t, because he has no physical instrument like a hand or a tongue, whereby he can eat, touch, and feel, sensual pleasure. Those who commit suicide, or die suddenly in accidents, or who are very much attached to their bodies, their wealth, possessions, family, or house, do not receive a gross body made of material elements, but remain in a subtle body as a ghost, whose subtle covering is composed of mind, ego and intelligence. The status of a ghost is full of mental anguish, because a ghost has the desire to enjoy material life, but because he doesn’t have a gross material body, he cannot enjoy, consequently, the ghost will simply create disturbances out of utter frustration due to the longing for sensual satisfaction.
According to the Vedic scriptures, homosexuality is both irreligious and unnatural, and is considered to be a demonic form of sexual pleasure indulged in by men who are on same level as devils like goblins. The material universe has been created by God to give an opportunity for independent minded souls to fulfill their egotistical ambitions of over-lordship. Because sex is the highest material pleasure, fulfillment of sex-desire is the primary drive of the false ego. All other aspects of life revolve around the basic principle of fulfilling sex-desire. Besides the gross aspect of sex-desire, the more subtle aspects of sex-desire that are manifested through the false ego, is the desire for profit, adoration and distinction.
From the standpoint of Vedic culture, homosexuality is the lowest form of sexual indulgence known to man, and also the most unclean and even more degraded than a person indulging in sex with an animal. According to the Vedas, homosexuality is a form of adultery, because the purpose of the homosexual act is simply gratification of the genitals and devoid of any sense of the procreative principle. Therefore, any sexual indulgence not meant for procreation, is condemned by all the religious scriptures of the world as adultery, and considered to be a thoroughly sinful act. The Vedic term for such kind of sinful deeds is ugra-karma, which means an act that is detrimental to oneself and the society in general.
The Bible says. “Thou shall not commit adultery” and this means that sex outside of the sacred covenant of marriage is adulterous. The Bhagavad-gita says. “Sex life in accordance with religious principles is pure,” (Bg. 7.11) therefore according to the scriptures, homosexuality is not in accordance with religious principles and consequently an act of adultery. The religious institution of marriage between a man and a woman is meant for the purpose of spiritual elevation, so that the natural tendency to indulge in sex can be utilized for procreation. This is the difference between humans and animals. In the animal kingdom there are no restrictions regarding sex, however in human society restrictions are there for the purpose of elevating human beings to a higher level beyond gross animalism and towards pure spiritual existence. Without following the principles of religion and institutionalized marriage, man is no better than an animal.
To be born in a man’s body, but spend ones entire life desiring to be a woman, is perhaps the most devastating kind of punishment that a human being has to endure. According to laws of karma, those who are born as homosexuals are destined to suffer a life of utter frustration. It is a life very similar to the life of a ghost trapped in purgatory. This is because the soul, which has been born with a female nature, has received a male body, due to the reaction of sinful deeds in the previous life. In this pitiful condition, the homosexual is trapped by nature in a body that is alien to the sexual cravings of the individual. Homosexuality is therefore one of the foremost examples of sexual frustration. The fact that homosexuality is a criminal offence in most countries, also causes a debilitating sense of alienation and self-doubt, as society looks down upon such acts like homosexuality as being a perversion of nature. There is also the psychological impact of realizing that one is actually a sexual pervert, because no sinner can escape his own conscience of wrongdoing, because the conscience is an aspect of Paramatma, the Chaitya-guru or Holy Ghost within the heart, reminding us of our sinful deeds. Due to all these factors, there arises a need in the mind of the homosexuals to justify their perverted sexual appetite by claiming that it is normal. The clamor for social acceptance and moral justification has led to the so-called ‘Gay rights movement’. In the ultimate analysis, a homosexual is an ashura with an ungodly and demonic mentality, who has to suffer in this life and the next because there is no path to salvation for such type of adulterous sinners.
To be born as a third sex, possessing a male body with female sexual desires is an aspect of the Biblical ‘purgatory’ or ‘eternal damnation of the soul’, the ‘living hell’ that people often talk about but could never clearly identify. This form of punishment, which also applies to lesbians, is a punishment for the most evil of all sinners who have to suffer the indignity of being identified as a pervert. There is a Biblical saying, “As you sow – so you shall reap”, the fault lies in the person who is being punished, not in the punishment or the punisher. Being born as a homosexual is considered to be very bad karma simply because the male form is specifically meant for spiritual knowledge, whereas the female form is meant for material self-indulgence. Thus the homosexual is suspended between two genders.
A homosexual is a demonic soul born into a man’s’ body but possessed with a female desire to enjoy sex with a man. Because of this anomaly, a homosexual is not a complete man, nor a complete woman, but half of each. Consequently, a homosexual does not possess all the qualities that a human being requires to be recognized as a fully functional male of the species, because a homosexual does not fully possess a male’s analytical mind or integrity. Concomitantly, due to a homosexual possessing female sexual desires, they also possess many other accompanying female traits and characteristics, such as being very self conscious, highly emotional, sentimental, lusty, spiteful, and extremely envious.
The homosexual is by karma not a complete male and according to the Vedas, is classified as being impotent, similar to eunuchs and other such impotent males. A man is judged on his potency to impregnate a woman and provide her with good progeny. If a man is sexually aroused by other men, then there is no question of potency. From the Vedic standpoint, the attraction of the male for the female is the potent aspect, and a male not being attracted to a female, is impotency. This is the conclusion of the Vedas based on the science of procreation. A homosexual is not sexually motivated to produce progeny, but to enjoy perverted sex-life with the same sex. Therefore, a homosexual cannot be classified as a fully-functional male due to impotency, or a fully-functional female due to the inability to conceive, and therefore falls into the third category, similar to eunuchs and hermaphrodites.
Homosexuals are the perfect example of varna-sankara. The Sanskrit term ‘varna-sankara’ means ‘unwanted progeny’, in the form of socially rebellious children. Having been born out of illicit-sex due to their parent’s irreligious sexual intercourse, as they reach adulthood, the varna-sankaras can have a very detrimental effect on the moral and religion values of society. Such varna-sankaras are born from illicit-sex that was simply for the satisfaction of lust only without any religious mandate. The Vedic scriptures, as well as other scriptures of the world, endorse sex-life within marriage that is meant for the purpose of begetting good children. Consequently, such children will automatically be born with a pious mentality and will possess good qualities. On the other hand, the varna-sankaras are extremely impious and possess a demonic mentality. In the world today, the attempt by homosexuals and lesbians for social acceptance and equality with heterosexuals is an attempt by varna-sankaras to subvert society and change the principles of religion to suit their own perverted agenda; just as the Vedas have prophesized they would.
It is most unfortunate for society, that homosexual varna-sankaras are being supported by the political leaders of the world, who must also be on the same level of degradation as the varna-sankaras themselves. Even if society succumbs to sexual degradation, brought about by the ever-increasing numbers of varna-sankaras, the religious scriptures of the world remain unchanged, as they have done since the world began, and will continue to do so until the world ends. As long as the pious and religious people continue to have faith in God, and follow the covenant of holy matrimony, they will continue to bear good progeny. The present age of Kali-yuga is a severe test for the faithful and the honest, but nevertheless, truth and righteousness will always prevail.
According to medical science, the anus is not a sexual organ and therefore to utilize it for achieving sexual pleasure is a perversity of nature. This is because the anus is not connected to the sexual organs in any way; there is no orgasm similar to what women experience during genital intercourse. The pleasure derived by homosexuals through anal sex is simply on the same level as the pleasure derived while passing stool. Penetration of the anus is not considered to be a normal sexual pleasure, simply because penetration does not lead to orgasm, which is the natural consequence of sexual intercourse when the female is penetrated. From the basis of Vedic religion, homosexuality is classified as an inhuman form of sex enjoyed by the demonic species like ashuras and malevolent spirits. Consequently, to use the anus for sex is not its true purpose, as it has been intended, and therefore is a direct perversion of nature.
According to human physiology, the anus is meant for evacuating decomposed waste food from the bowels in the form of foul smelling feces. Such feces are contaminated and full of harmful bacteria. In the homosexual act of anal sex, the worms that live in stool and feed of it are transferred through the homosexual’s penis to the bladder, where they are in an alien environment without their normal diet, and thus start feeding on the vital organs like the liver and kidney, which causes painful disease and also death. This has been proven by medical science. Another reason why the term pervert is used to describe those who indulge in anal sex, is because it is a perversion of mans natural inclination for sexual union with a member of the opposite sex. From the standard of Vedic culture, homosexuality is considered to be the most degraded and sinful form of sex-life, akin to a man indulging in sex with animals such as sheep, goats, horses, cows and other livestock. Anal sex practiced by homosexuals is also considered to be extremely unclean and polluting, due to the inevitable contact during anal sex with human stool. Homosexuality is obviously a perversion of nature because the anus is meant for evacuating waste food from the intestinal tract. Not for enjoying sex. A man who attempts to enjoy sex with his anus is actually assaulting his own body.
Nature produces only heterosexual life-forms, or life-forms that posses the ability to reproduce, because reproduction of the species is the governing principle behind material nature. Even within the most insignificant life-forms like ameba, bacteria, worms, and plants, reproduce by various means other than copulation such as internal precipitation, but regardless of the means, nature ordains them to reproduce. Consequently, according the laws of nature, any creature that does not possess the impetus to reproduce is considered impotent and a freak of nature. Homosexuality amongst animals is almost non-existent, simply because nature itself is not programmed to produce homosexual life-forms. That would defeat the purpose of nature itself, which is to perpetuate life through reproduction. Homosexuality is unnatural because sex amongst homosexuals does not result in progeny; consequently homosexuals cannot perpetuate their own species and would become extinct within one generation. Homosexual life-forms are not suited to continue the reproductive chain; consequently, the future of the species would be in immediate jeopardy and would be facing immanent extinction.
There are no homosexual dogs, cats, birds, or any other species. On occasion, homosexual tendencies may be witnessed between monkeys, and both male and female monkeys masturbate, and sometimes mount each other, just as cows mount other cows when they are in heat, which is caused by sexual excitement. Young adolescent monkeys sometimes touch each other’s genitals as well as go through the motions of mounting, but it is caused by sexual excitement. Amongst males it is due to isolation from females as the ‘alpha-male’ of the troop has driven them out. Therefore, such activities are not actual homosexual acts and those monkeys will eventually find a mate and start reproducing. This same rule applies to all animal species.
Animals are in a very low state of cognitive awareness due to ignorance. A dog can only detect its mother and father by smelling their parent’s anus. Similarly a dog only recognizes a female, when the female’s vaginal secretions attract his attention. In the animal kingdom, sexual arousal is caused by the scent emanating from the female vaginal secretions at the time when the female comes into heat. The powerful scent drives the male to engage in copulation, otherwise there is no attraction between the sexes. There are a few species like human beings, monkeys, fish, and some bird varieties, where the sexual attraction occurs due to sight.
According to scientific research, it was discovered that a very small percentage of sheep possessed homosexual tendencies, which scientists discovered was due to the sheep’s brains being underdeveloped. Therefore, due to cerebral deformity, freaks may occur within nature. Homosexuality in humans can also be explained as a variety of mental deformity, which is due to underdeveloped moral intelligence, caused by perverted sexual appetite and the reactions to grievous sins of a previous life.
The homosexual act is scientifically proven to be extremely unclean and highly contaminating, because it brings the practitioner into contact with human feces, referred to as stool. Human stool is infested with bacteria which causes a very repugnant smell. In India, the term untouchable is applied to a certain class or caste of people who are employed as toilet cleaners. The negative aspects of the job, is the fact that the cleaners must also clean sewers as well as dry toilets. Although dry toilets are being gradual replaced, it is the cleaning of these dry toilets which has led to the term ‘untouchable’. This is because the cleaner comes into direct contact with human feces, which must be carried in a basket, a bucket, is normally balanced on the cleaners head as they carry away the stool for disposal. Even though the cleaners do not make direct skin contact with the stool, as do the homosexuals, they are nevertheless termed untouchables.
On the other hand, homosexuals make direct skin contact with human stool, when they are engaged in anal intercourse, by inderting their penis inside the anus. For this reason, homosexuals are even more contaminated and untouchable than the toilet cleaners. The stool from the homosexual’s anus is transferred to the sex partner’s penis, and then the subtle aspects in stool, like the oil and mucus content, as well as macrobiotic intestinal worms that live in stool, enter the body of the homosexual. Even though the street cleaners can bathe and cleanse themselves after work, the homosexual can never be cleansed, because the stool of another human has entered the internal parts of the body. The unclean activities of homosexuals can therefore be compared to the activities of India’s domesticated hogs that eat human stool as part of their regular diet.
To be born with homosexual tendencies is an aspect of insanity and the result of being possessed by excessive lusty desires in the previous life. The Vedas say that a person who is possessed of excessive passion and lust must eventually go insane. The Shrimad Bhagavatam says. “The ghosts and hobgoblins took possession of the body thrown off in the form of yawning by Brahma, the creator of the living entities. This is also known as the sleep which causes drooling. The hobgoblins and ghosts attack men who are impure, and their attack is spoken of as insanity.” (SB3.20.41) The English dictionary says that a demon is someone who is “the personification of evil passion.” When a man’s lust for sex goes beyond the limits of the normal human experience, at the time of death that person automatically descends into the lower levels of hellish existence. In the present age of Kali-yuga, the human society has become morally and spiritually degraded and consequently there is a proliferation of both men and women taking birth, who are possessed of homosexual tendencies. Due to the degradation of human society in this age, such persons are able take birth from the wombs of human beings and because the rank and file of society is immoral, such spirits are more or less undetectable from the rest of human society, except by their perverse acts of homosexuality.
From the Vedic perspective, homosexuality is a form of insanity caused by excessive passion and is symptomatic of an uncontrollable desire for sexual satisfaction. Failure to exert control over one’s mind and indulge in such unclean acts like anal-sex is certainly a sign of insanity. Homosexuality is a form of mental depredation due to a lack of proper discrimination which is symptomatic of the early stages insanity. The homosexual appetite of one man for another is also considered to be insanity because it is a perversion of nature. In the Bhagavad-gita Lord Krishna says. “Therefore, O Arjuna, in the very beginning curb this great symbol of sin [lust] by regulating the senses, and slay this destroyer of knowledge and self-realization.” (Bg.3.38-42) Loss of knowledge means insanity.
Sex life is the driving force behind material existence and demonic people become addicted to enjoy unrestricted sex life. From the point of view of yoga and self-realization, the more one is freed from sex-desire, the more one is promoted to a higher level of consciousness. Concomitantly, the more one is addicted to enjoy sex, the more one becomes spiritually degraded to the level of lower animals and evil spirits. A person addicted to illicit-sex, loses all good qualities, which are gradually replaced by a host of bad qualities such as greed, hatred and envy.
A man actively practicing homosexuality cannot simultaneously be successful in yoga practice, because without giving up illicit-sex, there is no possibility of factual progress on the path that leads to the transcendental platform of self-realization. Illicit-sex creates bad karma which results in suffering and degradation of the soul. The Supreme Lord will not reveal Himself to an envious sinner, only to the sinless, and therefore, there can be no yoga or reunion with the Supreme Lord. It says in the Bhagavad-gita. “I am never manifest to the foolish and unintelligent. For them I am covered by My internal potency, and therefore they do not know that I am unborn and infallible.” (Bg.7.24) Homosexual activities can never be dovetailed in yoga because there is no resultant progeny from such an act, which can be offered to God as a sacrifice. Unless there is a result from the act of copulation, in the form of progeny, it is simply adulterous sex. Therefore, homosexual acts cannot be considered as an act based on the religious authorization. All forms of sex that are not for the sole purpose of producing children are outlawed by the Vedic scriptures and condemned as illicit-sex, or sex outside of the regulative principles of religion. “Sex life in accordance with religious principles is pure,” (Bg. 7.11)
The Vedic scriptures ordain that sexual intercourse must result in progeny for it to be considered as merit worthy and within the ambit of purified sex-life, which is an integral aspect of yoga. According to the Vedic scriptures, the act of injecting the human seed in to the womb of one’s wife is called the garbhadhana-samskara, the seed-giving rite or ceremony. Other than the garbhadhana-samskara or seed-giving ceremony, there is no other Vedic rite or ritual concerning sexual intercourse that is endorsed by the Vedic scriptures. Consequently, all other forms of sexual indulgence, including homosexuality, are considered to be illicit and unauthorized sex. Such unauthorized forms of sexual indulgence are categorized as being in the realm of ugra-karma and are not conducive to spiritual development or the practice of yoga. In the Bhagavad-gita it says. “There are three gates leading to this hell—lust, anger and greed. Every sane man should give these up, for they lead to the degradation of the soul. The man who has escaped these three gates of hell, O son of Kunti, performs acts conducive to self-realization and thus gradually attains the supreme destination. He who discards scriptural injunctions and acts according to his own whims attains neither perfection, nor happiness, nor the supreme destination.” (Bg.6.21-23)
A homosexual cannot live in a brahmachary-ashram, because for him, that is the same as a brahmachary living in a woman’s ashram. Being surrounded morning till night with members of the opposite sex, observing the opposite sex bathing, dressing and undressing, this is strictly prohibited. Any brahmachary or sannyasi, who allows a homosexual to live in the brahmachary ashram, must be a sentimental fool or a homosexual himself. A homosexual is a third sex and as such there is no place in the varnashram-system for such a perverted person. One must also take into consideration the other brahmacharys living in the ashram, who are at risk of being polluted by such type of association. The practice of yoga is not some sentimental process for scoring ‘brownie points’ or for accumulating disciples at any cost, or for appeasing some wealthy donor.
The only avenue for a homosexual is to abandon all sinful desires for illicit-sex and get married to a woman and practice the regulations of the grihastha-ashram. The Bhagavad-gita says. “Even if you are considered to be the most sinful of all sinners, when you are situated in the boat of transcendental knowledge you will be able to cross over the ocean of miseries.” (Bg.4.36) In order to enter the boat of transcendental knowledge, one must possess the proper qualifications. To receive such transcendental knowledge means to have followed the process laid down in the Vedic scriptures. Transcendental knowledge is not something one can learn in a classroom, such knowledge is divya-jnana, which is received through the heart by a bona-fide disciple of a bona-fide Vaishnava-acharya. Other than the grihastha-ashram, a homosexual can live alone but must give up all forms of illicit-sex and practice yoga in isolation, and associate with the Vaishnava-acharya’s through reading books, the internet and other forms of multi-media and can attend the public gatherings that are held in Vaishnava temples. The fact is that not everyone can be saved and there are many souls who may make some attempt at become Krishna conscious but they have already been condemned by Yamaraja due to their previous sins and will have to wait until the another life in order to achieve the transcendental platform of bhakti-yoga.
The final word on sinners, who engage in sinful activities like illicit-sex, is from the Bhagavad-gita. “Those miscreants who are grossly foolish, who are lowest among mankind, whose knowledge is stolen by illusion, and who partake of the atheistic nature of demons do not surrender unto.“ (Bg.7.15) “Those who are envious and mischievous, who are the lowest among men, I perpetually cast into the ocean of material existence, into various demoniac species of life. Attaining repeated birth amongst the species of demoniac life, O son of Kunti, such persons can never approach Me. Gradually they sink down to the most abominable type of existence.” (Bg.6.20)
Lust is the eternal enemy of the soul and due to its powerful force the soul has become hopelessly entangled in a web of illusion. When a new-born baby takes birth from the womb of its mother, its mind has already been pre-programmed in accordance with the deeds and desires from its previous life. Consequently, every child taking birth has a large stockpile of both good and bad karma that will gradually become manifest during the course of its life-time. The spirit-soul’s lust for sex is the driving force behind material existence, and all conditioned beings are trapped in this world of suffering, simply due to the overpowering desire to enjoy sex.
This entrapment is called ‘samsara’ in Sanskrit, or the unending ‘wheel of life’, as the soul passes from one birth to the next, sometimes as a human being, sometimes as an animal, or sometimes as a ghost, simply due to the burning desire to enjoy the pleasure of sex. Even though there is so much suffering in the world, and everyone taking birth has to suffer throughout life, which is due to the karmic reactions to their sins, they are hopelessly trapped by lusty desires and cannot gain release. In the Shrimad Bhagavatam it says. “One whose mind and senses are uncontrolled becomes increasingly attached to family life because of insatiable lusty desires and very strong illusion. In such a madman’s life, the remaining years are also wasted because even during those years he cannot engage himself in devotional service.” (SB.7.6.8)
Lust is the eternal enemy of the soul and due to its powerful force; the soul has become hopelessly entangled in a web of illusion. The only way to save oneself from this onslaught of lusty desires is yoga. Through the process of bhakti-yoga, the accumulated lust within the heart can be purified and regenerated as pure spiritual love (prema), which is the original purified nature of the soul in the spiritual world. In order to reclaim ones original position as pure spirit, one must engage in the daily practice of yoga and meditation. In the Bhagavad-gita Lord Krishna says. “As fire is covered by smoke, as a mirror is covered by dust, or as the embryo is covered by the womb, the living entity is similarly covered by different degrees of this lust. Thus the wise living entity’s pure consciousness becomes covered by his eternal enemy in the form of lust, which is never satisfied and which burns like fire. The senses, the mind and the intelligence are the sitting places of this lust. Through them lust covers the real knowledge of the living entity and bewilders him. Therefore, O Arjuna, in the very beginning curb this great symbol of sin [lust] by regulating the senses, and slay this destroyer of knowledge and self-realization.” (Bg.3.38-42)
Regardless of the amount of material pleasure one achieves, there is no end to material desires. Even the wealthy cannot stop accumulating more wealth as their desires for wealth simply increases. What to speak of Hollywood film stars that have access to the most beautiful women; needless to say, they never find satisfaction and change their sex partners one after another simply due to sexual boredom. In the Bhagavad-gita it says. “That happiness which is derived from contact of the senses with their objects and which appears like nectar at first but poison at the end is said to be of the nature of passion. And that happiness which is blind to self-realization, which is delusion from beginning to end and which arises from sleep, laziness and illusion is said to be of the nature of ignorance.” (Bg.18.39-39)
“Those who are demoniac do not know what is to be done and what is not
to be done. Neither cleanliness nor proper behavior nor truth is found
in them. They say that this world is unreal, with no foundation, no
God in control. They say it is produced of sex-desire
and has no cause other than lust.
Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves
and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible
works meant to destroy the world.“ (Bg.16.7-9)
There are two basic classes of men in the world, one is a demon, and other is a devotee. The difference between the demons and the devotees is that the devotees obey the commandments of God, whereas the demons disobey God’s commandments. The demons neither believe in the existence, nor the supremacy of the Supreme Being, while believing themselves to be the supreme enjoyers of the world. The Sanskrit term ‘ashura’ refers to someone who is ‘godless’ and opposed to principles of religion and addicted to sin. The vast majority of those who take birth during this present age of Kali-yuga, are demonic by nature. To be controlled by sinful desires is the sign of a demonic person. The well-known slogans, ‘eat, drink, and be merry’, and, ‘wine, women, and song’, are the mantras of the demonic class of men. Killing of animals for food, drinking liquor, gambling, and adultery, are the general trademarks of a demonic society. From the ordinary man in the street, up to the President or Prime Minister of a nation, those who do not strictly adhere to the commandments of God are all demons. The demons ignore the commandments such as. “Though shalt not kill – though shalt not commit adultery.” Today Presidents and Prime Ministers are engaged in passing legislation that legalizes adultery, as in the case of ‘gay marriage’. According to the Vedas, only a virgin can be married in a church or temple of God and the marriage of sexual perverts in churches or temples is simply sacrilegious and the work of the devil.
The sinners who falsely claim that they are Christians, declare that ‘God the Father sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, who was sinless, to suffer for everyone’s sins, and died on the cross in their place, thus saving them from their own sins’. As eloquent as it may sound, it is a complete fabrication of truth. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross only once, for the sins of his devoted followers at that time. However, the Christian cow-killers and adulterers want Jesus to be crucified every single day, because every single day they are committing sin. The so-called Christians are engaged in animal slaughter, drinking liquor, gambling, and illicit-sex ‘day-in-and-day-out’, and they are claiming that they will be not be punished by God, because they committed sin while ‘having a good time’ and for having ‘served mammon instead of God’. The bogus Christians commit sin simply based on the false doctrine that Jesus Christ saves all those who go to church and who admit their sins and who declare Jesus to be their savior. This type of heathen doctrine is not found in the Bible
The sinner’s version of Christian philosophy that proposes the doctrine that Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross in order to save the Christians from their sins is completely bogus. On the contrary, it is just a concocted form of ‘fool’s philosophy’. Such a faulty philosophy is not supported in the Bible where it says. “As you sow, so you shall reap.” As well as. “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” This “eye for an eye” is the doctrine of karma, the law of action and reaction that governs every aspect material nature. Christians are suffering for their sins everywhere in the world, no Christian is being saved, and they are suffering like all other sinners, regardless of their false philosophy that they are being saved. According to the laws of karma, only an individual’s own action, in stopping all sinful action, can save him from hell. Jesus Christ inspired his disciples and followers to give up all sin, and then only was it possible for them to be saved. It is not that someone can continue to commit sin, and still expect to be saved. Such a proposal is not only hypocrisy; it is a type of insanity. According to the laws of karma, only those who have stopped sinful life, and do not commit further sins, can be saved, not those who continue to sin.
The science of karma is very intricate. There are various types of karma or action. Akarma means no reaction; vikarma means bad reaction, su-karma means good reaction. Sinful acts are also called ugra-karma. Religious acts are called dharma-karma or sinless. It is very important to understand that Jesus Christ did not accept any followers unless they first gave up sinful life (akarma) and the Bible reveals that Jesus rejected those who were faithless sinners (vikarmis). A Christian who continues to commit sin is not a Christian but a charlatan and completely faithless, and has not factually placed full faith in Jesus Christ, by surrendered themselves to the ‘Will of God’, or following the ‘Ten Commandments’.
The sinners do not care for the commandments of God, or the teachings of Jesus Christ, they are simply addicted to the ‘sinful pleasures of the flesh’ and are looking for any excuse to go on with their sinful life-style. Thus they have manufactured the false ideology that says, ‘Jesus Christ saves the sinners’, when in truth, Jesus Christ cannot possibly save any sinners, Jesus only saves those who have given up sinning. Otherwise, what is the meaning to the ‘Ten Commandments’, if all sinners were being saved, the ‘Ten Commandment’ would be completely redundant. Why bother with any commandments if all the sinners who don’t follow the ‘Ten Commandments’ are going to be saved anyway. Did God simply waste his time giving these ‘Commandments’ to mankind? The bogus Christians have no logical answer to this question because their false doctrine that a sinner will be saved is completely illogical. Even Jesus Christ said. “I have not come to change the law, but to fulfill it” Those who today are follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and follow the ‘Ten Commandments’, are certainly eligible to be freed from their past sins and be saved by Lord Jesus Christ, of this there is no doubt. But a perpetual sinner, committing sin every day can never be freed from his sins. There is no reference in the Bible that says a sinner will be saved. Only those who have repented and given up all sinful activities will be saved.
Another important point is that a guru or spiritual master, being a saintly person, devoted to God, can take another’s sins upon himself, when he accepts them as his disciples through Vedic initiation. Baptism is a form of Christian initiation, and similarly, only those baptized by Jesus are actually his direct disciples. For whom he took the karma on his own head. Not others. A dead person cannot accepts karma, or administer rituals, initiation, or baptism. Lord Jesus Christ died only once, not every day of the week. At that time, he could accept the sins of his disciples and followers who had accepted his order to give up sin. Not the sinners who did not accept his order. Such as today’s so-called Christians. Modern-day Christianity is based on a complete falsehood that is not supported by the teachings of the Holy Bible. A sinner is a sinner whether he claims himself to be a Christian, Jew, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, or anything else. There is no such thing as a sinful Christian; one is either a Christian or a sinner, not both. A sinner is just a sinner.
The Vedas explain the scientific basis surrounding the natural laws of karma, the law that stipulates, ‘every action – causes a reaction’. The Vedic ritual of pinda-dhana, offered to ones diseased father, is performed annually in order to elevate the dead father’s soul to heaven. The son must do this because a dead person cannot create or destroy karma, this can be accomplished only by a living person existing on the earthly plane (karma-shetra), because only the living can directly affect the laws of action and reaction, by his presence. Therefore, simply based on the false ideology that says, ‘Jesus Christ saves sinners’; the self-appointed followers of Jesus Christ are committing all kinds of terrible sins in his name and thus bringing the entire Christian religion into disrepute. Christianity is no longer a religion of the faithful, but of the unfaithful and faithless, who are attempting to wash away their sins in the name of Jesus. The Christian civilization is now one of the most sinful and degraded civilization in the history of the world. The Lord Jesus Christ cannot save anyone who does not follow the ‘Ten Commandments’ of God, revealed in the Holy Bible. Only those who have accepted the order of Jesus Christ and follow the ‘Ten Commandments’ of the Bible can be saved from their sins, not those who disregard the order of God and disobey the ‘Commandments’. Only one free from all sinful desire can enter the Kingdom of God.

Rajashekhara was born in England in 1948. From the age of seven he began his inquiry into the meaning of life, after realizing that although death seemed inevitable for everyone, it also appeared completely illogical, as the life-force and the will to exist appeared far too dynamic to simply cease to exist at the point of death. As he grew-up, he became disenchanted with what he saw was a world full of cruelty and suffering. His ambition was to discover the answers to life, and not wishing to be involved in the mundane affairs of material existence or raising a family, he began to study philosophy and religion. In 1970 at the age of 21, he became a vegetarian and a follower of Buddhism, and began to practice hatha-yoga and kundalini meditation. In 1972, Rajashekhara adopted Krishna consciousness and bhakti-yoga as the best means for self-realization, and in November that year, he joined the Hare Krishna Movement. In May 1973, he received initiation from Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Hare Krishna founder, at the Bhaktivedanta Manor, the Tudor manor near Watford, donated by George Harrison of the Beatles, where he served as the manor’s first temple commander. In January 1975, desiring to make further advancement in spiritual life, the author moved to India and the holy city of Vrindavana, where he became a temple priest at the Krishna-Balarama Mandira.
Since 1975, Rajashekhara has lived in India, where he has continued his practice of yoga while studying Vedic philosophy and metaphysics. During his long sojourn in India, the author has visited all the important holy places of pilgrimage in the sub-continent from Kashmir to Kanya Kumari, including such famous places as Badrinatha, Yamunotri, Haridwara, Rishikesha, Dwaraka, Tirupati, Rangapatnam, Tiruvanantapuram, Madurai, Kumbhakonam, Tanjore, Navadwipa and Jagannatha Puri, to name just a few. Due to his extensive travelling, he has gained a treasure-trove of knowledge while imbibing the very essence of India’s ancient Vedic culture. His understanding of Vedic philosophy has been acknowledged by all those who have read his books and heard him speak on Vedanta philosophy and Gaudiya Vaishnava siddhanta.
Rajashekhara, who has remained an unmarried brahmachary ascetic throughout his life, is presently considered to be one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject of Vrindavana Dhama and its holy places, his numerous books about Vrindavana are read the world over by those interested in understanding the deeper mysteries of Lord Krishna’s spiritual abode, where the Lord performed His transcendental pastimes on Earth over 5,000 years ago. The author is also known for his exquisite photography of Vrindavana Dhama, featured throughout his books and which perfectly capture the transcendental atmosphere of Lord Krishna’s transcendental land. His personal experience and spiritual realizations, after having lived in India and the holy land of Vrindavana for so many years – is adequately conveyed through his writings, and those who read his books find themselves immediately transported to the transcendental spiritual platform.
In 1991, on reaching the age of 42, Rajashekhara established Vedanta Vision Publications, for the purpose of writing and self-publishing transcendental litteratures that propogate the glorification of Vrindavana Dhama, the holy land connected to Lord Krishna transcendental pastimes. In 2001, on reaching the age of 52, the author, inaugurated the Vedic Heritage Foundation, to expand the awareness of Vedic culture, philosophy and traditions, and to continue his research into the Vedic scriptures. His goal is to re-establish Gaudiya Vaishnava siddhanta and the pure unadulterated transmission of divya-jnana, that has been lost within both the Hare Krishna Movement and its Indian forerunner, the Gaudiya Math, due to them both having adopted the bureaucratic acharya appointment system, which is not unauthorized according to Vedic convention.
Amongst his upcoming publications, Rajashekhara is working on the highly anticipated Bhu-mandala Tattva-darshan – a five part summary study based on the 5th canto of the Vedic classic the Shrimad Bhagavatam – which deals with the subject of Vedic cosmology, the fabled Mount Meru and the island of Jambhudwipa, the kingdom of demigod’s, heavenly and hellish worlds, and the position of the planets in the solar system as revealed in the Vedas. Another important book now being written by the author, concerns the hidden facts surrounding the death in 1977, of the Hare Krishna founder, Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, which the author personally witnessed, and the deviations that took place in the Krishna movement that time, after the demise of the founder who is recognised as the world’s formost Vedic acharya. In 2015, in his 66th year, the author released a truly dynamic and forthright presentation based Vedic sex education entitled ‘Kama Sutra-Dhama Sutra The Yoga of Pure Sex’, for those who wish to understand the true essence of yoga practice, that enables one to cross over the great ocean of material suffering and achieve liberation from the shackles of sex-desire that causes the soul to reincarnate on Earth birth and death.

VRAJA-LILA The Pastimes Of Radha & Krishna In The Garden Of Eden
The holy scriptures of the Hindus known as the Vedas, declare that there is no escape from perpetual suffering for those who indulge in perverse illicit acts like homosexuality and anal sex. Homosexuality is one of the most degraded acts indulged in by humans and is punishable under the stringent laws of nature, referred to in Sanskrit as the laws of karma, which are the natural laws of action and reaction. The life of a homosexual is a life of utter frustration being consumed day and night by perverse sensual demands. A homosexuals mind is always under the grip of an inferiority complex based on the realization that their sexual appetite is abnormal. The internal mental anguish of a homosexual is equal to a living hell and no amount of clamoring for ‘gay rights’ will ever placate their internal subconscious guilt for as long as they live. Due to being consumed by uncontrollable lust, a homosexual cannot comprehend that the material body is not the real self, but a temporary vehicle for the soul, consequently such persons are unable to transcend the physical plane of bodily conception in order to realize that the real self is pure spirit soul, called jiva-atma in Sanskrit. A homosexual is a condemned soul who must endure a life of social rejection as well as ridicule, due to having developed a thoroughly perverse and sinful desire to enjoy sexual relations with those of the same sex.
