Brother Is Using Prostitutes

Guest angry and sad

Just as the title states my brother has been using prostitutes for almost 3 years now and I don’t know what to do. He is 26 and I am a year older. I’ve suspected something for a few years but he has promised me he wasn't doing anything. It wasn't until I found irrefutable evidence that he admitted to this. We argued, well I shouted he didn’t say anything he just sat quietly. What hurt me most was that he has lied to me about this for years. I am just seething with anger that he has done this. I don’t know what to do. Our parents obviously have no idea and my fear is that I will say something, in anger to them about him. He isn’t religious at all so going to the Gurdwara etc isn’t something he has any interest in. What do I do? Inside me I feel rage towards him.

I sympathize with you and understand perfectly the sense of outrage and

anger that you feel,

More than anything, I guess you feel letdown and disappointed

by his actions as well as disgusted by his weakness and irresponsible

behaviour, hopefully he can redeem himself in your eyes, maybe if he

met a good woman with good qualities he would desist from this self-destructive path,

Only with familial support and not abandonment and rage can he

overcome this addiction and come to faith,

Yet, since he is irreligious it is not particularly suprising that a man

would behave like this as it is pretty universal regardless of culture

for people with hedonistic mindsets,(though that fact probably won't help you)

but please understand that there is nothing in his upbringing that could

have caused this and there is nothing that a brother or sister could

have ever said or done to have prevented this, it is simply a case

of uncontrolled desires deep within him that are possessing him and

driving him to act in this way.

I guess it is just one of thos things where all you can really

do is to preach against it and hope that he feels shame and repents

or through his own experiences he realizes the pitfalls of such behaviour and changes,

Obviously he's ashamed of doing this or he wouldn't be keeping it secret

but to tell your parents would further drive a wedge between you and him

, maybe some sort of intervention type situation with his friends etc might help?

I've seen people with similar problems cured by family members talking to

mahapurukhs, doing bani or akhand paaths, hukamnamas.

But the bottom line is that he has to want to change deeply from within

(and he probably does, you just have to coax it out of him)

Listen to your inner voice. It'll be easy for you to stay away from him but listening to him might be more helpful to him - your brother. Ask for the truth, and then become all ears; stay in the moment and listen to what he has to say. For once...just listen without reacting.

Help him. Don't abandon him. Tell him about the circumstances under which these women have become prostitutes. Some of them were raped while they are children, some of them were tortured by their own so-called family members to become prositutes, some do it so they fill their childrens' stomach, rare do it for fun and these types have aids.

Women are not toys. A six year old girl got raped in our city here, I wonder how she'll ever get out of these horrible memories. The father of this girl said he wishes that he hadn't heard those most disturbing things that his little girl had told him, as no father would ever like to hear them. For one person's so-called dirty fun, a soul is now left with the most disturbing memories; those that'll be damn hard to overcome.

Take your brother out on a tour to this prositute paradise nearby and question these women if they are willing to tell him "why and under what circumstances they became prosititutes."

Hey Guru...

its not his fault ... we need to look up ... how he was raised up ... human mind is like a tree ... for first 15 years parents friends uncles aunts school tv etc etc fills him up later he starts giving back to society ... if he was raised well religiously if not religiously but with certain social rules he can leave this stuff in future ... if he raised up as a ladla putter of mummy papa he will not change ... rest every thing is in hands of guru sahib ...

two brother same parents same home atmosphere ... ones good ones bad these is where previous karmas play there part ...

no, the cure isn't to get him married to someone so he can expose them to STD or worse. why do you think i would ever entertain a thought like that. i said to him, one day you'll get married is this what you want your wife to be married to, is this what you want you children to be born to.

Before coming to sikhi, I had lots of mona punjabi friends who had affairs and had sex with girls. There are very few virgins in this world I feel. We are living in ghor kaliyug and unless a person is imbued in Naam, kaam is going to get the better of him and he will either date and sleep with girls or go to prostitutes. The solution lies in counselling him, make him do mool mantarr in the morning.

Everyone person in the world is looking for love in a way that they think is best. He's just screaming for love :) Give him pyaar in the house and most likely he will stop going out looking for it.

Sorry if that sounded harsh, that was not my intention.

Guru Rakha

    • was researching this and came back to this thread. Also found an older thread:    
    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
