Sex no bar in Indian spirituality
- Dear friends,
I am stunned to see the controversy about alleged sexuality of
Ramakrishna. Is it "sharing meditation techniques,concpts"? No.
Sex act is the superior natural exercise to any exercise you can
name. Sex has never been an issue in Indian spirituality. It is the
land of Kama Sutra. The four aspects of Indian life are-dharma,
artha, kama(sex) and moksha. Manusmriti says that there is no fault
in sex act but regularisation of sex energy leads to enormous
benefits. Read Kumar Smbhaba by Kalidas. You will enjoy the
description of sexual intercourse by Yogiraj Lord Shiva.Read Geeta
Govinda by Jayadeva. You will enjoy the dscription of extramarial
sexual intercourse of Yogeshwar Lord Krishna with Radha. Lord Shiva
had 1(?)+16108 wives.
Read sexual lives of adiguru Shankaracharya, sages Kandam,
Parasar,Vyas,Bharadwaja, Sharadvan,Rishyasringa,his father and
etc.etc. You will enjoy.
Let me tell you an anecdote said by Ramakrishna Paramahansa.
A sadhu was living in a temple. Nearby the temple there was a
prostitute. Every night as a visitor entered the house of the
prostitute the sadhu used to keep a peble to counnt the number of th
customers visited the prostitute. Every morning he used to show the
pebles to the prostitute and reminded her how much sin she had
committed. The prostitute in turn kept her mind focused on God
confessing that she had no other way to live. Incidentally sadhu and
the prostitute died on the same day. The viman came from vishnu lok
to take the soul of the prostitute and the massengers from Yam lok
came to take the souls of the sadhu. Apparently strange but what the
anecdote empasises is the "FOCUS OF ATTENTION".
Contemporary mind body medicine also says that. So my health
power formula is:
