  1. So as a teenager, hormones are in full effect. And I’m not going to act like there aren’t beautiful girls around the world I feel attracted to. I am confused on masturbation, is it fine to do in Sikhism? I know that the main problem everyone has with masturbation is Lust. And from seeing different opinions from people, I am confused. Lust is the bad part because it makes you forget Naam. But doesn’t watching YouTube or a movie make you technically forget Naam too? The first thing I do in the morning is to pray to God and talk with God. Everyday I feel like I remember God and Naam. So I am confused on what is bad about masturbation done moderately. If forgetting Naam is a reason, don’t I do the same thing when watching tv or playing a sport or when I’m in school? Say this, If I daily pray and talk with God and remember God, is it bad for me to masturbate moderately to attractive girls in Sikhism? Because I feel like I remember God everyday. People say The bad part of Lust is forgetting Naam but I am confused, aren’t I technically forgetting Naam while doing things that take my full attention for example like school, sports, movies. Can I balance my sexual life and my religious within Sikhism? I mean no disrespect, just curious.

    —— and Lust?

    So allow me to introduce my self (anonymously) I am a 16 year old boy. In Sikhism Lust is considered a sin. But I have been confused. People say ——- is wrong because of Lust. Lust is a sin because it takes your mind away from God, basically it makes you forget about God. And that is why it is considered a sin. And that is why I don’t ————-. But, I am confused because if Lust is considered a sin because it makes you forget about God, then isn’t technically anything that makes you forget God a sin? For example When I play video games, I tend to forget about God, but not permanently, I forget about God while playing video games, but playing video games isn’t a sin. But Lust makes you forget about God and me playing video games does too. So what’s the difference between those two. I know this discussion is all over the place , so let me simple it down. I ask kindly for people to answer these questions 1. As a Sikh, do we have to constantly think about God, like every second or minute of the day? 2. What’s the difference between temporary forgetting God through Lust and temporarily forgetting God through other things such as Video Games, watching movies, doing Homework, playing a intense sport, etc. ? 3. ——- 4. ——- 5. finally, is forgetting God while doing other things, is forgetting God during those times a sin? 6. Finally, If forgetting God is the sin then Do I have to remember God every second or minute of the day? Or can I remember God throughout the day while spending time doing other things ? To everyone I mean no disrespect, I am just confused and curious. Please don’t ignore this form.

    So I uploaded a topic similar to this but I am still confused. So let’s get to the point, people say looking at videos of attractive females is lust because your not thinking about Naam and that your forgot my Naam. But aren’t we forgetting Naam when we take a school test or when we watch a movie. Because technically we are really focused on the test in school or the movie we are watching, so isn’t that technically lust too? When you take a test in school , the test take all your awareness towards it. Even when you watch a movie, the movie takes all your awareness too but people don’t consider both of these things lust, but they consider watching attractive females videos lust. Watching attractive females and watching a movie both do the same thing, they take your awareness away. So aren’t they both lust. Is watching videos of attractive females in moderation lust? Is masturbating in moderation lust? Because they are no different awareness wise than watching a movie or taking a test . No disrespect, I’m just confused.
  4. Hi all, Masturbation is healthy every week or so, I think, and reduces prostate cancer, so how do Sikhs view this, because I was always taught it was wrong, but surely the scientific health benefit is more important? Maybe, similar to sex, which also releases good hormones in the, but also banned by people I know. If it does in moderation and lovingly, then is it alright, with God's kirpa?
  5. With reference to a couple of 'discussions' presently taking place on the main page of this forum. I have previously on this forum given explanations (or pointless 'lectures', whatever you wish to call it) about both those topics. If you don't want to read what I write that's fine but I do find it odd that a few weeks or months later some numptey always seems to decide to start a brand new thread about things I've already covered. Alas...never mind...anyways, the first one is the thread about the word for tiger, i.e. Babbar: In one of my linguistics threads here in the past I explained how the Punjabi word for tiger comes from the Persian word 'Babbar' and indeed the English word for tiger, i.e.....err….Tiger....also comes from Persian in that it comes from the Persian / Punjabi word for arrow, i.e Teer. An arrow, as you know, travels very fast and the Greeks took the Persian word and used it for Tigris and western European languages,i.e English took the word from the greek. Also fairly interesting is the fact that our Punjabi /Persian word for tiger: Babbar does have a roundabout connection to the English word 'Barber' as the English word is taken from the olde French word 'barb' which means the sharp end of a Teer (arrow) And the other thread on the main page was, for some very very strange reason, started by someone just a few very short weeks after I started and finished a thread here about 'Sikhs in Shanghai' in which I not only told him that although at one point the Sikh community in Shanghai was the largest of all diaspora Sikh communities it is now all but gone, I also posted a photograph of the building that used to be the Gurdwara and told him where it was. I'm really not sure why I bothered starting a thread called 'The Sikhs of Shanghai' in which I state there are no Sikhs there now and state where the old defunct Gurdwara is only for some numptey to come along exactly 2 weeks later start a thread called 'The Sikhs of Shanghai' in which he asks if there any Gurdware / Sikhs there. But, that pretty much sums up this forum in a nutshell. Links to the new current thread and original thread below:
  6. I am 27 and a half. Although I am gay (only attracted to males and not females) , so one would wonder I would die childless. However if in future I choose to have a child, do I risk having serious issues with his/her health ? will my child be born normal as i think that by then there might be chromosomal abnormalities in DNA of sperms. for me masturbation is like smoking. its a stress buster , as I never smoke or drink ever. So do I have to quit it off although it would be really tough. The longest I have been without waanking was 42 days last july

  9. Why is it bad to lust after a person? Masturbation is a pleasurable experience, what is so bad about it that must be conquered spiritually?? If it hurts no one else, why is it bad?
  10. Dear friends, Discussion of topic like masturbation is embarrassing but we have make it clear is masturbation a keraht or bajar keraht. I asked to few amrtdahri persons (even serched on internet )they views didn't matched thier were like this :- 1. It is keraht but not bajat keraht 2. It bajar kehrat even highest of all of them. 3. Can't say, panj payeri don't tell about so we can conclude it is not a bajar keraht ( which if we do then we are no more amritdari persons ). Now my question is masturbation a part of bajar keraht or but due to embarrassment one talk about masturbation.

    Hello, I wanted to know how someone could control masturbation and lust. I'm currently having this problem and would like to stop.
  12. After reading through a number of masturbation and lust problems, I was reading through a website when I came across a message which could be highly helpful. http://satnaam.info/2005/12/02/2-overcoming-the-effect-of-past-lives/ Practicing what this page says should help to put you back on the right path. May Waheguru help you.
